Going BANANAs!

It's time to revive this blog! So, I shall be celebrating Blog Almost Nearly All Nights in August! (BANANA)
If you're going to do something, always have a snappy anacronym {or at least a cool initialism.) 

So, let's start it off with something book-centric. I've been scanning a few posts from BookRiot over the last few days. One of the things in their recent thread is the idea of an author alphabet. Can you come up with an author you read for every letter?    This isn't a bad idea -- might save you from going back to the same tired clumps of books in the library!

So, here goes. The following authors are ones that are on my 52 books to read list for this year: 

A - Arthur, Keri (Darkness Splintered)
B-Beddor, Frank (The Looking Glass Chronicles)
C-Christie, Agatha (Murder at the Vicarage)
D-Doctorow, Cory (Little Brother)
E-Emery, Anne (Children of the Morning)
F-Fenn, Lionel (Kent Montana and the Really Ugly Thing from Mars)
G-Green, John (The Fault in Our Stars)
H-Heinlein, Robert (Stranger in a Strange Land)
I-Isleib, Roberta (Deadly Advice)
J-Jacobs, A.J. (The Guinea Pig Diaries)
K- Kellerman, Jesse (The Executor)
L-Lee, Harper (To Kill a Mockingbird)
M- McKinley, Robin (The Blue Sword)
N-Nestle, Marion (Food Politics: How the Food Industry Influences Nutrition and Health)
O-O'Dell, Scott (Island of the Blue Dolphins)
P- Pratchett, Terry (Colour of Magic)
Q-Quinn, Spencer (Dog On It)
R- Rubenstein, Julian (The Ballad of the Whiskey Robber)
S-Sanderson, Brandon (Mistborn)
T-Taylor, Patrick (An Irish Country Doctor)
U-Updale, Eleanor (Montmorency: Thief, Liar..)
V-Valente, Catherynne M. (The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making)
W-Willis, Connie (Doomsday book)
X- Chen, Brian X. (Always On: How the iPhone unlocked the anything - anytime - anywhere- future -- and locked us in. 
Y-Yu, Charles (How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe)
Z-Zusak, Markus (The Book Thief)

Okay, the one for X I had to flex a little --thank you author keyword search at my local library! -- but the rest are all ones I had already had on my "to read" lists in various forms. I'd be interested to see who you've got on your "to read" lists.
