I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Authors A to Z: B

Authors from A to Z
June Blogging Event

hosted by Proud Book Nerd

More info here, sign-up here.

A month-long posting challenge that showcases authors and their works. We start on June 1 and post daily (except Sundays), with each day having a letter of the alphabet. The point of this:
  • To show our appreciation to awesome authors.
  • To share awesome authors with our readers.
  • To challenge ourselves to post daily, outside memes and reviews.
B? No one comes to mind...oh, Marian Babson! Nevada Barr, Rita Mae Brown (and Sneaky Pie), off to LibraryThing to see who else is in my library.

Jo Beverley! Regency Romance (a several favorites)
Anne may have been the perfect lady once, but twice is her limit! Now she's angry, and to torment her further she has a mysterious, infuriating interloper called Race de Vere to turn her life upside down. And to tempt her to play hazard -- with dice, and with her heart.

Rita Mae Brown writes several series and stand alones but my favorite series is Mrs. Murphy. She claims her cat helps her and gives Sneaky Pie co-authorship credit.
Hiss of Death: Ah, spring! The brighter days and singing birds have a way of lifting people’s spirits, as well as those of their animal companions. But the season can also bring out the first blossoms of murder. As the redbuds open in Crozet, Virginia, Mary Minor “Harry” Haristeen is especially excited—until a health crisis sends her reeling into the forbidding world of hospitals and doctors, treatments and procedures. Surviving this journey will be tough, but Harry has her animal friends—and her ever-helpful husband, Fair—to support her. Others are considerably less fortunate: A promising nurse’s lifeless body is discovered without a mark on her. Then another hospital employee, who had seemed in perfect health, is also found dead. There’s a mystery afoot—and that’s one thing Harry and her menagerie can’t keep their noses out of.

a couple of series and LOTS of stand alones. Wish these were re-released as ebooks.


Nevada Barr's Anna Pigeon series are set in National Parks.

Firestorm: In her capacity as spike camp medic and security officer, Anna is part of the army battling the Jackknife fire in Northern California's Lassen Volcanic National Park. Conditions conspire and turn freakish causing Anna and her crew to be caught in a firestorm. When the storm passes, a crew member is dead, and not due to natural causes...


Dancing with Ana
by Nicole Barker

interesting story about high school girls and anorexia


Annette Blair has several series/stand alones but Kitchen Witch was my introduction to her.
When a single-dad TV executive hires Melody Seabright—a flaky rich girl and rumored witch—as his babysitter, she magically lands her own cooking show...and makes sparks fly.


and, can't forget ... The Berenstain Bears
great interactive site
