Once again it's time for the weekly Blog Hop hosted by Crazy for Books. So this week's question is who is your favorite new-to-you author of the year?
I wish I had an answer that didn't involve an author I feel like I'm constantly talking about here but it does. I don't know how I missed him before but Christopher Moore is my newest favorite author. A friend hounded me for the longest time to read Lamb and once I finally go around to it I understood why. Since that point earlier in the year I've read 5 more of his books. I've only gotten around to posting about one of the books, Coyote Blue, but more are certain to follow. I'm trying to take a break from Moore for awhile but I'm sure I'll be drawn back soon.
Edit: I didn't notice until Bookangel pointed it out but I didn't describe Moore's work at all. His books can be categorized as satirical, absurdest, humor and literary. Lamb's full title is Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal. He has another work, Fool, which is King Lear told from the Fool's point of view.
