Favorite Author Meme

YAY! It's my first time being tagged for a meme.

I've been tagged by Lenore.

1. Who’s your all-time favorite author, and why?

Hmm... what a hard question! I don't have one favorite, so my favorites are as follows:

Jane Austen: Man, that girl could write! Pride and Prejudice is one of my all time favorite love story novels. She just has a style that is different from everything today.

Laurell K. Hamilton: She has like, what? A gazillion books out and like two or three different series written. Usually I only like one series or one book by an author, but everything that this woman puts out, I can't wait to get my hands on! Even in her debut novel, her talent was shining. She writes alot that could be placed in science fiction.

Stephenie Meyer: Okay, who doesn't love her? The Twilight series was genius. Seriously. And her newest novel, The Host, was amazing. Enough said.

Jay Asher: I recently read his novel Thirteen Reasons Why, and it has become my all time favorite book. That's a hard position to get into, so Jay automatically makes my list of favorite authors.

2. Who was your first favorite author, and why? Do you still consider him or her among your favorites?

I think my first favorite author would have to be Frances Hodgson Burnett. My favorite books when I was younger were The Secret Garden and A Little Princess.

I don't think I'd still consider her among my favorite authors. Sure, she is an awesome author, but my tastes have changed as I've gotten older.

3. Who’s the most recent addition to your list of favorite authors, and why?

Jay Asher, as I just said, because I recently read Thirteen Reasons Why and it became my favorite book of all time. Simply put.

4. If someone asked you who your favorite authors were right now, which authors would first pop out of your mouth? Are there any you’d add on a moment of further reflection?

I'd probably come out and say Laurell K. as my favorite author when I'm asked on the spot, but as I'd think about it more, more and more authors would make the list. It's so hard to pick just one!
