First off let me welcome you to our new site we hope you enjoy it and will find lots of good information along the way.
So Heather and I have been discussing what we enjoy about contemporary books.
I personally love the books where I relate to the characters and it does not hurt to have some humor in them. But catch me in the right frame of mind and I love those FBI/Crime type books. Some of my go to authors are: Carly Phillips, Susan Mallery, Erin Nicholas, Catherine Coulter (love the FBI series) and Kristin Higgins.
Heather likes to relate to either the character or story of the book and loves when she feels that she is with a long lost friend. Of course she loves Nora (who doesn’t) and I am supposed to tell Kim that she is ready to have all her Nora books back. She also enjoys Julia James, Carly Phillips, Christina Dodd, Sandra Hill, Julie Garwood.
I am sure we can both go on and on because there are so many to choose from but we will leave that up for your discussion.
One Commenter today will win – wait for it – books of course
We also asked a few of our favorite authors what their go to books or authors are right now and where do they go to relax and read. Their responses will be posted over the next few days
Carly Phillips: http://www.carlyphillips.com/ A few months ago I would have said I’m a true contemporary reader. Only. That’s still the case … without the only! I’ve recently strayed into a genre I never thought would hold any interest for me – paranormal. It’s been a fantastic break from my normal reading and when I’ve devoured my contemporary authors and am waiting for a new release. As for which authors, in contemporary – my fellow Plotmonkeys, Leslie Kelly aka Leslie Parrish, Julie Leto, and Janelle Denison … and also Toni Blake, Erin McCarthy’s racecar series, Victoria Dahl, Jill Shalvis, Rachel Gibson. And now in my new paranormal phase, I’m devouring Nalini Singh, Meaghan Hatfield, Larissa Ione. As for where? On my Kindle … wherever I can. In bed usually since reading is a treat for when I can relax but in my car while waiting for the kids works too!
Erin Nicholas: http://www.erinnicholas.com/ I almost always go for contemporaries first, though I have favorites in historical, erotic, and paranormal too. I have a few go-to authors who always deliver for me but the two that first come to mind are Erin McCarthy and Susan Andersen. I have a big chair by my picture window that I love to curl up in with my Kindle! 🙂
