Who's Your Favorite Author?

Who's Your Favorite Author?


Once I'm into authors, I will read anything by them. Sometimes all they need to do is write one epic book, and I'm a reader for life; other times, I fall slowly through a series or a stretch of solid reads. Today's National Author Day, so let's round up our go-to writers and find some new favorites while we're at it.

AmyGro, David Sedaris also makes me laugh and is one of my faves. His sister Amy is not far behind although she mostly writes "coffee books".

You guys make me feel dumb ;) I wish I could say Shakespeare or something elaborate like that... I'd probably say John Irving, but I haven't read everything by him. I have read most books by Nicholar Sparks, but I don't like to admit that openly...

Michael Chabon. He loves the use of words. Writes beautifully. Everything he writes is amazing.

Charles Dickens. His stuff is so dark and depressing, but there's always a happy ending. Everyone gets what's coming to them.

Vladimir Nabokov! I admire every single condescending thing he's ever written or said!

Shakespeare is pretty amazing to me. No matter how many times I read or watch one play, the next time I see it I find yet another thing I had missed before. Everything is a pun or double entendre or symbolic of something else. Shakespeare was brilliant. I also love Jane Austen for stories with a nice rhythm and pace, and a happy ending

I second neonbee, I love Margaret Atwood's work. The Blind Assassin is one of the best books I've ever read.

There is nothing written that is as complex, interesting, and multi-faceted as Shakespeare's body of work.

Fyodor Dostoevsky. Easily. There is no one better in my mind.
