Favorite Author

If frequency, or number of books read is any indication, then my favorite author is clearly Stephen King. And, even without counting, if you asked me, that’s the answer I’d give you.

I can’t say I’ve loved all of this books. However, I read the entire Dark Tower series twice. I also really enjoyed The Talisman, Misery, and many, many others. One of his most recent novels, Fairy Tale, is excellent.

Coming in a distant second is Piers Anthony. I read approximately 24 of the Xanth novels. I feel like I read a few more than that, but I think the names might be familiar because I had intended to read them, not because I actually did. Xanth #47 will be published this year, so it looks like I have some catching up to do! I also loved The Incarnations of Immortality series, as well as some of his other, shorter series, although I’m not sure I finished those either.

Third on the list is Louise Penny, with the beloved Inspector Gamache books, followed by Diana Gabaldon, author of the Outlander series, which I adore.
