Asking a reader who their favorite author is usually feels like picking a favorite child (I’m assuming, I have no children, this is what I’ve been told). So, instead, I’ll tell you about my favorite authors for each genre that I read, long one or two runners-up who are worthy of mention.
This list is a bit short. I realized I’m not much of a repeat-reader as far as reading multiple books from an author. Unless it’s a series, which you’ll see a bit below. I like variety, some say it’s the spice of life.
Action: Steig Larsson
Contemporary Fiction: Khaled Hosseini
General Fiction: John Irving
Historical Fiction: Phillipa Gregory
Honorable Mention: Tracy Chevalier
Non-Fiction: A.J. Jacobs
Young Adult: J.K. Rowling (are you really surprised?)
Honorable Mention: S.E. Hinton
If I have to pick overall, I usually say John Irving. He gets a little repetitive if you read him a lot, but I love his storytelling style.
Who are your favorite writers? What other genres would you have chosen? Anyone I should read? Leave a comment and let me know!
Until next time, write on.
