This or That? #90

For anyone who 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!


This is late because I wasn’t sure if I was going to post today or not but I figured why not.

This week I want to know if you have ever read books by any of the following authors:

  • Danielle Steele
  • Harlan Coben
  • James Patterson
  • Nora Roberts
  • John Grisham
  • David Baldacci

The reason that I chose these authors is because I have been seeing their names my whole life. It’s like, if you walk into a store that doesn’t necessarily sell books but they have some and it’s always from these authors. I’m pretty sure most (if not all of them) have been writing since before I was born.

I’m also not sure if they are popular outside of the U.S. so that will be interesting to find out as well.

So the answer the question. Only (very) recently I’ve started reading James Patterson and Harlan Coben. One by each to be specific. That’s all so far but I would love to get my hand on a Danielle Steele book because I have never heard anything bad.

What about you? Are any of these names familiar? Do you know their work? Let me know!

    I’ve done my usual post on your question here but in short I’ve heard of 5 out of the 6, but only actually read books by one of them – 3 of them are authors I’ve definitely considered picking up before and probably will at some point in the future.

  3. My mother read Danielle Steele and I’ve read one book from John Grisham “A Time to Kill”, which was made into a movie starring Samuel L. Jackson and Matthew McCanaughaey (sp?)

    Not only have I not read any of their books, I’m not sure I could name any of them either!

    I’ve seen all of these authors in every bookstore I go into, but the only one I’ve read is James Patterson. I’ve read the first 9 books of his Women’s Murder Club books. (He’s currently up to 16 now). Oh and I’ve read the first book of his Maximum Ride series (did you know the main character in that is a girl?! For the whole book I thought it was a boy and then my friend told me it was a girl.)
    Funnily enough, I read all of these books in high school. There was a long period where I thought I was too mature for YA and started reading more adult books. I was really, really into Crime fiction for at least a year.
    Looking forward to reading the results! 😀

    Oddly enough, I’d never heard of David Baldacci (until right this moment!) or Harlan Coben (until B posted about how much she loved his work a while back).

    Nora Roberts & Danielle Steel skew somewhat more towards romance (if I’m wrong, as always, please correct me!), so I’m not really interested in reading their works. Harlan Coben sounds interesting, as does James Patterson, so I’m sure I’ll check them out at some point in my life.

    The only author I read from that list is John Grisham. I read The Firm & The Pelican Brief, but I read them back around the end of 1994/the beginning of 1995. I remember nothing. LOL (According to my list, though, I really liked both books. 😀 )
