Hopping around!

It's book blog hopping time! This week has a question:

Tell us about some of your favorite authors and why they are your favorites!

I have many favorite authors for many different reasons, so I'll just pick one: Haruki Murakami. I love Murakami's ability to paint a world that you can get completely lost in-one that at first glimpse resembles normal life but the further you delve into the book the more surreal it becomes. The prose is so engaging that you find yourself longing to listen to that Shubert piano concerto the characters were listening to, or to eat pasta right along with the characters-it really makes me want to fully immerse myself in Murakami's world.

Here is the link to Crazy for Books to keep on a'hopping!
