Favorite authors

I can’t choose a single favorite of hardly anything — a favorite color, a favorite candy, a favorite cereal, a favorite meal, a favorite fiber, a favorite place. My preferences change depending in large part, I think, on my mood, but I also like crave variety. So when it comes to favorite books and favorite authors, it shouldn’t be surprising that I’ve got lists (and even those are in flux) rather than singular ultimate favorites.

I can’t be alone in this, can I?

My favorite authors — in no particular order

  • Carlos Ruiz Zafón
  • Leo Tolstoy
  • Francine Rivers
  • Randy Alcorn
  • Sibella Giorello
  • Dorothy L. Sayers
  • Beth Kephart
  • Madeleine L’Engle
  • C.S. Lewis
  • J.R.R Tolkien
  • Patrick O’Brian
  • Anne Lamott

Some of these are new favorites, some of them are old favorites.

And then, because I can’t stop there, I made a [probably also incomplete] list of authors who are potential favorites, but since I’ve only, alas, read one of their books so far, I can’t be sure.

Potential favorite authors

  • River Jordan
  • Kathleen Norris
  • Athol Dickson
  • Walker Percy
  • Claudia Mair Burney
  • Mitali Perkins
  • John Irving

Who are your favorites? Any potential favorites?
