Let’s do another Alphabeticals post! These are fun.
Here are the rules as Alex posted them:
- Credit Alex for the idea, and link back
- Post at your own pace, do as many or as few letters as you want
- Post your favourite authors, books and characters (ABCs) for a particular letter of the alphabet
I’ve done two of these posts already, though pretty spaced out. I think they will continue to be a random series, even though my “peek at my bucket list books” series (which has been taking up so much of my Friday Reads time) is coming to a close. I don’t want to get bored with the Alphabeticals, which means not doing them all the time.
Authors beginning with ‘C’
Elaine Cunningham wrote the Forgotten Realms and Ravenloft books that were my favorites in those universes when I was younger. I want to read more of her work now, but I really enjoyed the works of hers that I’ve read.
Sharon Cameron is not an author I’ve read much by — but I loved her Dark Unwinding duology and so she earns a place on this list.
Books beginning with ‘C’
The Castle of Llyr by Lloyd Alexander is one of the Prydain Chronicles, and I loved that series when I was a kid. I intend to go back and read it soon, and while I don’t remember now which book in the series was my favorite, I do know that I liked them all.
Children of the Night by Mercedes Lackey is another favorite. I haven’t read it in quite some time, and I suspect that reading it now it will feel its age. (Even if it has aged well culturally, I suspect it will feel like 1990’s urban fantasy.) Still, I enjoyed this book enough to hunt out Diana Tregarde everywhere I could find her.
Characters beginning with ‘C’
Cecelia from Sorcery and Cecelia: or the Enchanted Chocolate Pot is just an all-around fun character. She (and her counterpart, Kate) are surrounded by magic, and intrigue, and romance, and knitting. Perfect.
Christopher from Seanan McGuire’s Wayward Children series. (Even if you read the books, you may not remember his name. I had to look it up to make sure. I remember the character, though, and I want more of his story.) I love the idea of Mariposa, and the Skeleton Girl that Christopher fell in love with there.
I hope you’re having a great day, and a great December so far! Hard to believe we’re half a month away from the end of 2018…
