Today I am going to share my top 10 favourite authors.. to be honest, this was hard, but not because I couldn't narrow it down but because I struggled to find 10. I love books and I have lots of favourites, but I don't really have a ton of favourite authors that have written several of my favourite books. Does that make sense? If I really enjoyed a book, I will more than likely add the rest of the author's works to my list, but that list is 600 books and growing, so it takes me awhile to get around to them. But anyway, off the top of my head, as of right now - these are my favourite authors.
Jane Austen - well, I mean duh.
J.K. Rowling - well, I haven't read any of her others (yet) but HP is so amazing that she is automatically on this list.
Philippa Gregory - I haven't read all of her books, but I went through a phase where that's all I was reading. I can't remember exactly which ones I read and which ones I haven't as I read them all out of order, but one day I want to go back and read them all in order. Fun!
Paullina Simons - Love, love love love so many of her books. Except for a song in the daylight. No. I want to reread The Girl In Times Square to see if it's as good as I remember.
Jodi Picoult - even though I have only read 3 Picoult's, I know I can pick up one of her books and it will be well written, and I will enjoy it. So far, anyway. Hope she doesn't ruin that.
JoJo Moyes - same thing for Moyes as Picoult's. I have loved what I've read, can't wait to read more.
Charlaine Harris - KIND OF. I adored the Sookie Stackhouse books like you would not believe. The last 2 were pure trash and I hate Harris for doing that to me. Yes, to me. I loved the rest of the series so much. Good thing I found an alternate fan written ending to make up for it.
Marissa Meyer - I just absolutely loved The Lunar Chronicles and can't wait for the last one. The last one will determine if she stays on this list, but I just think they were so well written, original, interesting and I just gobbled them up, and what more could you want? I hope they make it into a movie (or 4).
Janet Evanovich - I can always pick up one of her books and know it will be easy, light and enjoyable.
Abigail Reynolds - well, this isn't for everyone, but I know I can pick up a P&P variation written by Reynolds and I will enjoy it. I've given up on most variations, but I love hers.
Roald Dahl - I know, it's an odd one, but this is my childhood right here and I can always pick up one of his books and be transported back so fast I get whiplash.
Who's your favourite author?
