In case anyone needs a reminder or is new to the Bookmark Chronicles, here are the rules: Every Monday I will post a This or That Challenge where we will choose between two characters or scenarios. On Friday we will see which scenario/character wins. Feel free to either comment your choice below or make your own post and link it back here!
By no means do you have to feel obligated to do every single challenge, but I would love to hear all of your opinions! If you can only really talk about one scenario then go for it. Also, if you have any suggestions or would like to write a guest post about any of the This or That? topics let me know!
I created a Twitter poll asking what the question should be about this week and the final results said: Authors!
So, this week I want to know……
Do you have a favorite author? If so, who are they? Which of their books would you recommend to someone who has never read their work before?
If you’ve been following me for a while then you know that I love Jodi Picoult!
This woman is a genius and she writes about things that most people don’t want to talk about which is definitely something that I can appreciate.
Her most recent novel, Small Great Things, is my favorite of all time. You can click the link for the review! This book is incredibly important to me and was very helpful as I was reading it in the aftermath of the recent election. This is really something that everyone should read. It may make you uncomfortable, but it’s supposed to. Your job is to figure out why you’re feeling discomfort, lean into it, and decide if you’re going to do anything about it.
My second favorite by her is My Sister’s Keeper. This is the one that I typically recommend because it’s not as heavy as some of her others. It was actually the first book that I read by her and I’ve been hooked ever since. Such a good read and DO NOT compare it to the movie. The movie was terrible, did not do it justice and they completely changed the ending.
Other books that I’ve read by her include: The Tenth Circle, Salem Falls, The Pact, Nineteen Minutes, Change of Heart, Plain Truth and the novella for Small Great Things called Shine.
I am currently reading Leaving Time and it is phenomenal!
What about you? Who is you absolute favorite author (if you have one)? Let me know!
