Favourite Author

Recommended Posts

Jane Austen

Adriana Trigiani

Sarah Waters

Margaret Atwood

 

It's sheer coincidence that they're all women (in fact I'd not really realised that my favourite authors were all female before now). I go through phases with other authors too - Tracy Chevalier and Philippa Gregory spring to mind.

I have read everything there is by Jane Austen and The Bronte Sister. I'd read about everything by Rainbow Rowell.

Other than those, I can't think of any authors I would read everything by, without reservation. Even my favorites Terry Pratchett and Steven Brust have written some books that just don't seem all that interesting to me.

Hi,

It's a quite difficult question :) Because my favorite writers' list has changed a lot depending on my age, life situation, etc.

But I always love the books of

Jane Austen
O. Henry
Brandon Sanderson
Charlotte Bronte
Jack London

Patrick O'Brian

 

However, I will not wonder if my list change soon)

 

Regards,

Sherry

I managed to get the complete set of Neville Shute books one time for $20, at a book fair. They look like they've never been read. I've read many of his books and really enjoy his writing. Which is your favourite?

Hi poppy,

Well, I'd say that THE PIED PIPER is probably my favourite; and isn't he an excellent author!

Yes he is! I would have said the same, John Howard is such an endearing character. Also loved Requiem For A Wren.

I must admit that I haven't read REQUIEM FOR A WREN, yet; I'll have to try to find the time to read that one soon.
