A 5th Monday Post

A 5th Monday means it has been two weeks since I've posted a Marvelous Middle Grade Monday post. I don't have one to share today, since I've been taking some time over the last couple of weeks to catch up with some of my favorite women's fiction authors. But, I did still want to write a post for you all today. Over the last couple of years I've rediscovered middle grade fiction and that I love it just as much as when I was in the middle grades of school. I'm not ashamed to admit that either! :) I can't wait until I can one day find a book of mine on the middle grade shelves of a bookstore.

But, back to women's fiction, I do have a few favorite authors that I still enjoy reading and sometimes need to relax and catch up with them.  Do any of you have any adult authors you still can't live without?  My absolute favorite is Debbie Macomber. Reading the history of how she was first published and the struggle to get there, actually gave me the boost to take the next step in my writing career. I'm excited for the first book of her new series that comes out this fall. Others I love - Robin Jones Gunn and Karen Kingsbury.

I'm also excited for Calico Joe, John Grisham's new book. I'm guessing that will probably be a summer read. 

I will be back next Monday with a new MMGM, but until then, any other adult authors you can't live without?  Or are middle grade or YA all you need?
