Would it be shitty to say myself? Lol 


If I can't choose myself I would say George R.R. Martin.

I don't think it's shitty to say yourself. I think that is actually wonderful. I wish I had that much confidence in my own writing. What genre do you write?

I really love Cherie Priest. I loved A Clockwork Century Series but I didn't read the extra ones she had published on the side. I love the Maplecroft series so far. I love her I Am Princess X. I didn't read her Gothic series yet but own them. I wanted to read her newest novels but I don't have the funds right now to get them.

However, I am writing a Memoir and hope that it will get published within the next couple of years, I have to find the right publisher for it, it's on the topic of #MeToo. It'll be my favorite thing I've ever written because I would have been brave enough to finish it but I maybe wouldn't say I'm my own favorite author. I do have a SciFi series planned too but that's going to be a HUGE project and if I completed that then I would say I'm my favorite author because I'm really into the topics that will be included and it'll be a fun adventure to me. LOL.

I would say I was my favorite author but I never go back to read my own books. I would say Stephen King and an upcoming author named JD Toombs. I got an early look at his first novel.

A few of mine are George Orwell, Stephen King, and Neil Gaiman for sure.

Many of my favorite writers come from the world of comics. I've really liked Kieran Gillan, Adrian Tomine, and Craig Thompson. I would also like to read more from Jeff Lemiere.


For prose, I have been reading a lot of Haruki Murakami and Miranda July. I am reading a collection of short stories by Joshua Ferris right now, though.

I read a lot of contemporary sweet romance, and I love supporting Indie Authors - and as I read on subscription with Kindle Unlimited I pretty much only find authors there ^^" 


My current faves are:

Darlene Byers "Sapphire Ridge Prospects" - a new author with a very unique and earthy Australian voice.

Michelle Pennington - particularly her new romcom series starting with "Oh Keep Your Shirt On"

Tamie Dearen's "Limitless" Billionaire romance series - very refreshing to have representation from the disabled community as believable and loveable heroes who don't need to be fixed for their happily ever after to happen.

Oof, I have wayyyy too many, but I'll give you a few that come to mind immediately. Richelle Mead, P.C. Cast, Jodi Picoult, C. C. Hunter, Tracy Wolff, Lauren Kate, and if I think of anymore, I'll add to this comment.

I love C.S. Lewis' ability to create worlds (Especially Narnia). 

To me, writing stories for children is such a kind and honest occupation and I am currently sitting on a tiny book myself that I wrote last year. 

I also love Hemingway, and Agua Viva by Lispector.

I know I'm suuuuper late -- but I could recommend anything by V.C Andrews. The Flowers In the Attic series is a good one to start with. All of her novels are pretty fucked up but they're so easy to get hooked to. I'm currently on a Stephen King kick right now cx

Robin Parrish is a favorite of mine, as is early Ted Dekker. Same goes for the first 4 or 5 novels by Michael Chabon. Other favorites include Keigo Higashino, Marie Lu, Langston Hughes, Tolkien, Rowling (the writer, not the person), Adalyn Grace, Jared Reck, Angie Thomas,  S. K. Perry, Jasper Fforde, and I've recently come to know about authors like Nina George, Liane Moriarty, Jodi Picoult, and Phaedra Patrick, all of whom I've enjoyed reading.


I could go on, but this list is probably way too long already!

Taylor Jenkins Reid. I first read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and was so captivated by the way she wrote the story. I am currently making my way through her older books and she is incredible.
