Author You’ve Read The Most Books From
Either Janet Evanovich or Sandra Brown. Don’t judge me. I am a voracious reader of all sorts.

Best Sequel Ever
A Wolf at the Table by Augusten Burroughs. Though technically not a sequel, it was the second book of his that I read about his family, and it is amazing.

Unabrow: Misadventures of a Late Bloomer by Una LaMarche. It’s absolutely hilarious. Also: a manuscript for work, Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt, and The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley, though I admit I haven’t picked up either of the last two in a while.
