The winner of the signed Mari Mancusi book is...
Congrats, check your inbox!  Thanks to everyone who entered and to Mari for the great interview and for donating the prize!

I realized I have not read that many books by male authors.  Please recommend some male authors in the paranormal or YA genre.  Thanks in advance.

For male authors - Terry Brooks and Jim Butcher spring to mind first.

Some male authors I like: Charlie Huston, Neil Gaiman, John Scalzi, Christopher Moore, John Ajvide Lindqvist, Chuck Palahniuk, Frank Beddor, Max Brooks, Mark Z. Danielewski, Cory Doctorow, Scott Sigler, and Haruki Murakami. According to my Librarything statistics, I have almost twice as many male authors in my library as female authors.

I think a Male Madness challenge is a great idea if it's not something you usually read.

Hmmm. I don't read that many male author's either! But here are several for your list:

Nicholas Spark, author of The Notebook, Dear John, etc.

James Frey, author of A Million Little Pieces

Ian McEwan, author of Atonement

Bernhard Schlink, author of The Reader

Jerry Spinelli, author of Stargirl, Maniac Magee, etc.

Dan Brown, author of Angels and Demons, The DaVinci Code, etc.

William Shakespeare, author of Romeo and Juliet, Othello, etc.

Bob Mayer, author of Agnes and the Hitman, Don't Look Down, etc.

I would definitely join in on your challenge. I need to read a few male author books that have been sitting on my shelf for a while!

My paraprofessional and I came up with this list: Jim Butcher, D. J. MacHale, Scott Westerfeld, Jonathan Stroud, Herbie Brennan, James Patterson, Derek Benz, John Flanagan, Anthony Horowitz, Charlie Fletcher, David Klass.

That should give you a start.

Well not sure if you read these or if they are your favorite genre but..

James Dashner wrote The Maze


Patrick Jones wrote The Tear Collector

I also really like James Dashner's The Maze Runner.

Rain Maiden said...

I love Michael Crichton's books.

Julie said...

Male authors that come to mind: Scott Westerfield (especially Midnighters. Far better than Uglies in my opinion), Shakespeare, John Green (I recently reviewed Paper Towns, my personal favorite of John's), David Leviathan's Love is the Higher Law is definitely a wonderful book.

Some on my wishlist are:
The Book Thief - Markus Zusak
Suzanne's Diary of Nicholas - James Paterson
Poision - Chris Wooding
Message in a Bottle - Nicolas Sparks
Memoirs of a Geisha - Arthur Golden
For One More Day - Mitch Albom (Tuesdays with Morrie & Five People You Meet in Heaven are wonderful)
