One thought on “Petra’s Favourite Authors”

  1. very good choices, and I am very much looking forward to Joanne Harris’ Peaches sequel to Chocolat. But, could not get into Blue Eyed Boy – very disturbing. Bernieres Captain Corelli’s Mandolin is an amazing book and I have another on my TBR. My fave books include Elizabeth Kostova’s The Historian, Anthony Capella’s The Food of Love and Khaled Hosseini’s A Thousand Splendid Suns.
