Authors From A – Z, Almost

I thought I posted this a while ago… I’m going to blame baby brain…

I saw this meme on What Red Read and wondered if I had favourite authors for each letter of the alphabet. Well, the answer to that question is, no. I decided that I’d make an alphabetical list of authors I’ve enjoyed and think that others should read too, though there are a few favourites in there. Can I make it from A to Z? We’ll see.

A: Margaret Atwood
B: The Brontës (I know they’re more than one person, by I couldn’t pick one.)
I: Anosh Irani
K: Stephen King
L: Harper Lee
M: Yann Martel
O: Michael Ondaatje
P: Sylvia Plath
R: J.K. Rowling
S: R.A. Salvatore
T: Miriam Toews
W: Virginia Woolf

So I’m missing Q, U, V, X, Y and Z. I want to read The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, but I don’t even own it yet. I do own The In-Between World of Vikram Lall by M.G. Vassanji, but I haven’t read it yet. I’ve never read Jane Urquhart, but maybe I should pick up a copy of Sanctuary Line? Maybe I should read some Yeats. I could not find any authors who have a last name starting with X. Is that crazy? I was looking on If anyone knows of one, please share.


  1. Grahame-Smith, nice :) Let me know if you find an X author!
    Also thanks for the link!

  2. There is a chinese author called Xinran who is very good.
