Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Shanah at Bionic Book Worm.
This week the lovely Shanah and I are are rocking around in a similar…but not the same…boat.
Just like Shanah, I thought I had already written and scheduled this post…and so coming home from work feeling super unwell (thanks to little babies who wipe their snot on me and sneeze in my face when trying to give me slobbery kisses…..I DO love my day job and my babies REALLY…they are so damn cute…but I’d like to say a hard and fast NO on the germ sharing please!) I crawled straight into bed.
This morning I dragged my sniffly self out of bed….put on essential oils, cleaned the house and sat down to look at my blog……alas no post. There may have been some swearing …and then I got to writing.
So all that is to say….sorry I’m late…but I’m here.
I love that March is a themed month revolving around author’s names (first or last…or in my case a mix of the two) and the alphabet.
This week is the 2nd week of March and so the letters are F, G, H, I & J.
But here’s a link to the beginning of my author alphabet if you missed it: Top 5 Tuesday – A, B, C, D & E
Let’s get to it!
F is for Laurie Frankel – This Is How It Always Is and Therese Anne Fowler – A Good Neighborhood – these two books were so beautifully and expertly written I can’t help but recommend them to everyone I meet.
G is for Elizabeth Gilbert – City of Girls – although I have no desire to read any of her other novels; City of Girls was such a wonderfully compelling book I really wanted to include her in this list. Also Anissa Gray – The Care and Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls….almost finished this book…60 pages to go… and WOW!!!
H is for Gail Honeyman – because how amazing was Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine?
I is for ……um……I don’t think I know any I authors of the top of my head. I’ll probably be reading someone else’s Top 5 Tuesday later and be smacked in the face by a really good one and feel completely stupid…but such is life!
J is for ……to make up for the lack of ‘I’ authors, I offer you an abundance of ‘J’ ones – Jojo Moyes, Josie Silver, Tayari Jones, Balli Kaur Jaswal, Lisa Jewell, Taylor Jenkins Reid.
Which authors are in your ABC?
I’m looking forward to reading everyone’s posts and hopefully finding a new ‘must-read’ author or two.
