Do you have a favourite author? I would love for you to share yours if you do have one and let us all know why.
My favourite author is Jenny Colgan. I find her books always satisfying. The endings are happy, the books are light and somewhat whimsical. If I am need of a pick me up or I am in reading slump then Jenny Colgan is my go to lady.
Sarah Addison Allen is another brilliant author who I know produces books that always leave me happy. Sarah Addison Allen’s books have a wonderful element of magic intertwined and are the perfect bridging books for lovers of supernatural YA books that have gotten a bit older now. Very hard for me to split the two authors but I will go with Jenny Colgan. Maybe if Sarah Addison Allen had published more I might have gone the other way. They are both brilliant though 😀
If I asked myself the same question ten years ago the answer would have been Jodi Picoult. I used to read her books all the time. I loved the drama, mystery, tragedy and intrigue that her books bring. As I got older I moved away from her books. My theory in the shift is that I am now more connected to the drama and mystery of everyday events, so I look for the opposite when I am reading. The news is filled with horror stories of missing children, suicides, shootings etc. so I don’t really want to read about them too. Ten years ago I was young and rarely watched the news so I loved the drama of her books, now I want to escape that in the books I read.
I can’t wait to hear who your favourite author/s are! Have yours changed over time too?
Happy reading x
