Authors I have avoided

I like to think that I am adventurous reader. I don’t read best-sellers just because they are best-sellers. More often than not, if a book is the new “hot” read, I will avoid it like the plague. This means that there are quite a few “prolific” authors that I have not read.  For example, until last week, I had not read ANY James Patterson books.  Yes, the man who releases 2 to 3 books a month, has been, up until last week, snubbed by me.  I have decided that one of my goals this year is to each month, read at least one book written by an author I have avoided.  So, I will be reading:

January – James Patterson
February – Danielle Steele
March – Robert Galbraith
April – Diana Gabaldon
May – Louis L’Amour
June – Nora Roberts
July – Nicholas Sparks
August – Sandra Brown
September – Bernard Cornwell
October – J.A. Jance
November – Nevada Barr
December – Heather Graham

Each month I will post what book I’ve read by the author, my thoughts, and decide if I will read more books by the author.

Thanks for reading.
