National Author Day is Today!! So let us have it….your favorite authors and books. What is your favorite genre?

Mix evening jock Holly Haze is an avid reader. Last year she read over 100 books and this year she’s a bit behind at 45. “My favorite genre is crime novels for sure. I love John Hart, Nelson DeMille, Patricia Cornwell, Scott Pratt, Harlan Coben, David Baldacci, Michael Connelly, James Patterson, John Grisham, and you can’t go wrong with a romance novel from Nicolas Sparks!!”

She adds, “Books are so much better than movies. The mind sets the scene that the author narrates and all the little minutia is lost in a film, for instance, The Goldfinch….easily one of my favorite novels, but the movie didn’t come close to the book’s greatness.”

Who is your favorite author? Do you read? Actual book or kindle?

Haze insists on the good ole fashion library book. “I MUST have a book in my hand, nothing digital…I love the sound of the library cover and the smell of the pages.”
