  • I can't just pick ONE author!

    I have loved everything by:
    Juliet Marillier
    Jack London
    Kate Elliot
    James Herriot
    Colleen McCullough
    Steinbeck

    Not otherwise a huge fan of Ken Follett, but did love his "Pillars of the Earth" and "World Without End" books.

  • I have never read a James Patterson book and been disappointed, so if I can only pick one it would be him.

    I have a suggestion... My MIL is the author of a book series called "Genreflecting". It is basically a book about books. You look in her book for your favorite author and it will give you a list of other authors that are similar. Every library has a copy of her books.


    Here is a link to her website...

    She has been a librarian for over 30 years and has read tens of thousands of books. Generally at least 7-10 books a week, every week. So she knows books!

  • Edgar Allen Poe... I have a small Poe obsession in fact. Besides owning everything he ever wrote (at least 3 copies) I have his action figure, a number of biographies, movies and documentaries based on his life... I have even been to his childhood home and grave, as well as those of his mother, wife and aunt...

  • I enjoy Alice Hoffman and Jodi Pilcout a lot but have finished all of their books. I am into Anita Shreve right now and love her works!

  • For leisure reading, Charlaine Harris. I have read all 30+ or her books and they are all good.

  • SleepingBeautee - I have the same problem! LOL I like so many authors. But I've finished most of the series books I read so I'm looking for a new author for my next trip to the library.
