What Steph Likes

Filed under: Welcome — ukmelia @ 8:09 pm

Hi! I’m Stephanie, voracious book reader with eclectic tastes. Many thanks to Jack for letting me chime in. I’ll start with favo(u)rites:

My favorite authors are Jim Butcher, classic Stephen King, Larry McMurtry, some Michener, Cherie Priest, Warren Ellis, JK Rowling, Anne Rice before she got all weird, Bill Bryson, Charlaine Harris, Grisham, Margaret Mitchell, John Irving, Victoria Holt… Really, the list goes on and on.

Favorite series include: The Dresden Files (Jim Butcher), The Sookie Stackhouse series, Clan of the Cave Bear series, Harry Potter.

Favorite other books: “The Mother Tongue” (Bryson), “Circle of Friends”, “The Princess Bride”, “Patriot Games”, “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”

Recently finished books: I’m working my way through the Sookie books. Judging by how quickly I’m getting through them, it’s safe to say I love the series 🙂

I’m a re-reader, bigtime. I have a large array of books that I hold on to and will go back and read through just because I find it comforting to escape into a familiar world now and then.

It’s hard for me to discover new books, so I’m hoping Jack blog here takes off and is useful, not just for me but for other book lovers out there 🙂



  1. Hi Steph! I’m big into most the books you love. I am a HUGE fan of Charlaine Harris. I’ve read all her books except I can’t get into the Shakespeare series. Sookie of course is my fav. I reread those like a maniac. I also love the Twilight series. They are great. Harry Potter terrific.

    Another big author I love is Alice Hoffman. I’ve read almost every single books she’s written. My fav being River King or Story Sisters. GREAT books. She wrote Practical Magic that they made the movie after.

    Not big into sci-fi. I will have to check out some of your other fav books. Came here via Jack’s facebook post.

  2. Thanks Gina! Gosh how cool, I love comments 🙂 I really am digging the Sookie books. i got into them from seeing True Blood and I think I like the books more. I’m afraid I can’t say I’m a fan of the Twilight books. I read them to see what the fuss was about, but they just weren’t for me. I will keep an eye out for your other recs! Thanks again!
