Authors I Love

Do you have a favorite book? I’ve seen some posts lately about favorite books, and I struggle to choose just one…or two… There just aren’t many books I want to read over and over. I do, however, have plenty of authors who (rarely) disappoint me. If I’m looking for a good book, I check to see if they have any I missed. When I see they have new books out, I request them at the library. Here are some of my favorites for various reading moods…

light, quick read
  • Sophie Kinsella I’ve Got Your Number, Shopaholic series
  • Carol Higgins Clark Gypped, Mobbed, Wrecked (you get the idea!)—all featuring Regan Reilly 
  • Janet Evanovich One for the Money, Two for the Dough; she’s up to 19 on the Plum series; there’s also a Wicked series 
  • Joanne Fluke Blueberry Muffin Murder, Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder—again, I think you get the gist here
  • Debbie MacComber Cedar Cove series, Blossom Street series

I don’t usually write reviews for these—they’re kind of my guilty pleasure without much thinking involved. And sometimes that's quite nice!

good “strong woman” books


not sure how to classify this
  • Jodi Picoult Nineteen Minutes, Mercy, The Pact 

I definitely enjoyed her earlier books more than the more recent ones, but I love how she puts me in a position where I’m SURE I know what I’d do…until she gives other perspectives and I don’t know anymore!

I plan to continue a quest for a “favorite book” (oh, the reading that will entail!). Meanwhile, it’s great to have my go-to authors!

Do you have a favorite book? Is it easier to give a favorite author?

  1. I don't have a favorite book and I rarely reread a book but there are a couple of authors that I really like. James Michener is an old favorite and Khaled Hosseini is a new favorite.
