Top 5 Tuesday – Authors from A-Z (K, L, M, N, O)

Hello there, homo sapiens! It’s time for Top 5 Tuesday.

This tag is hosted by Shannah over at Bionic Book Worm.

March is a themed month and this month’s theme is Authors from A-Z. Last week. we had authors with names starting with the letters F, G, H, I & J. Today we’ll be having authors whose names start with K, L, M, N, & O. Again, I opted for family names.

K – Ken Kesey

Basically a breathing, moving, eating and happy-go-lucky homo sapiens. Full-time daydreamer and part-time paranoid. I love reading, I love Roger Federer, I love food.

  1. I haven’t read any of Ogawa’s work yet but I have one of her works that I am looking forward to read. I can’t believe I missed Harper Lee. LOLs. She would have been my choice for letter L as well although she only had two novels published and I read only one of them. Haha. Great list by the way!

    1. Which of Ogawa’s do you have?
      I have only read one of her two published novels as well, haven’t gotten to the second one and I’ve read several not-so-good reviews about it.
      Thanks for visiting. Enjoy the rest of the week. And keep safe. 🙂
