    Who are your favorite authors and why do you love /like them?

    My favorites are Paulo Coelho, Sidney Sheldon, Luke, James, Solomon, Jude Deveraux, Dale Carnegie, V.C. Andrews, and Lao Tzu. Some of the reasons I love these authors because they have taught me something, taken me to other times or places, and shown me different perspectives.

    Orwel, Huxley, Borroughs, and Kafka.  My favourites because you have to use the brain to read them, their books are not, like many books, an endless stream of emotion and rubish.

      Thank you for your list! I must admit that I like emotion and rubbish, sometimes. I am an anthropologist at heart and love to know what makes people think and feel the way they do. Although, I am interested in Kafka's writings.

    Kresley Cole, she has great stories and can really tell a tale. Her novels overlap, each book providing more information about previous stories in a way that are not pressing on the reader. Also, her Lothaire book was filled with psychology that I found astounding compared to her other novels.
    Jeanine Frost, her characters and their relationships are so similar to that of my husband that I love reading her stories just for the people in them. She makes them realistic and I consider her books 'pocket friends' that I can pull off my shelf and make me happy instantly.
    Patricia Briggs, her stories are well told and she always brings something new into the picture. I never know how the story will end and love the main characters involved in two of her series.

      When you describe what you like about their stories, it makes me want to read them. Thank you for your answer.

    I am rather old-school and mostly read the Classics.

    I love Jane Austen because her simplicity turned me into a bookworm.

    I love Emily Dickinson because she sometimes narrates my own emotions.

    I love Virginia Woolf because every word she wrote was perfectly in place.

    I love Victor Hugo because of his emotion.

    I love George Eliot because she is George Eliot.
