    Thanks for a great giveaway! It would be tough to choose a book πŸ˜‰
    I also love Tim Winton’s books, but Richard Yates is also a great American author of literary fiction that I enjoy.
    Have fun hopping!

    I enjoyed looking at all the titles offered by the authors on your list. There are many American and British authors that I’ve read this year, far too many to name. I’ve also read several Australian authors, a few African, and not enough others. I would love to read either Burgess Boys or Amy and Isabelle by Elizabeth Strout. I’ve subscribed via email. Thanks for the great giveaway.

    The reason I love this Hop so much is because I don’t read much Literary fiction and it gives me a chance to explore new books and read amazing blog reviews. I get so excited during this Hop because my TBR list grows and I find new and exciting authors and styles that open up my reading world. Although I don’t think I have an author I follow, a recent book I read and enjoyed in the genre was The Diner by H Koch.
    Thanks for your giveaway. As the other blogs have, you to have given me many exciting options to increase me reading list. Thanks! ghwasd (at)gmail(dot)com

  22. On November 11th, 2013 at 12:58 am patty weiser Says:

    That is a great list of authors. As for who I am enjoying – so hard to pick, I love George Elliot and Rebecca West as Middlemarch and The Fountain Overflows are two of my all time favorite books. I have recently started reading Barbara Pym and really like her stuff.
