I love reading, it's one of my favorite pastimes.
I would have to say my favorite author is Mr.King, though after reading a few of his books I cant help but feel a very apparent pattern(with the characters and the settings) though I cant tell you what it is. Perhaps it's just because he uses the last name "Freemantle" in allot of his books and doesnt explain why.

Im almost finished reading Duma Key, has anyone else read it?

Im not sure if I like it as much as his last works, it seems kind of....relaxed for him? Still a good book nonetheless.

The next book Im going to read is the Witching Hour by Anne Rice, she's a good writer but somewhat "hit and miss" for me. Im hoping the Witching Hour is as good as I have heard it is.

flipgirl,you named almost all of my favorites adding only Faye Kellerman,Jonathans wife.

[QUOTE=mollywog;630443] but I also tend to read a lot of Jodi Picoult.[/QUOTE]

I never come in this part of the forum :shrug: I read a Jodi Picoult book not long ago "My Sister's Keeper", absolutey loved it.

If I was stranded, even though it would be real hard for me to choose, I think it would have to be James Michener.

Romeo's #1 Fan May 5th, 2009 10:59 PM

No doubt hands down, I am a Stephen King fan, have been since I first read Carrie. lol @ the comment above about the last name "Freemantle". Mr. King does thread his stories in many ways, the most famous Freemantle being Abigail from The Stand. I did read Duma Key over Christmas and loved it, but my favourites are the Dark Tower Series, Volumes I-VII, spanning over 22 years. That was A LONG WAIT :lovestruck::cloud9: I also read Mary Higgins Clark, Jeffrey Deaver, and Patricia Cornwell (my reading has taken a nose dive since Mr. Little Prince Romeo came along :)).

i love nora roberts! and lots of fantasy

I just love Janet Evanovich who writes the Stephanie Plumb series about a female bounty huner from New Jersey. You will laugh at loud on every page and there are about 15 books in the series. My second favorite is Sue Grafton whose main character is Kinsey Millhone who plays a private eye. These two ladies never fail to put a smile on my face.

TwinTails June 13th, 2009 08:13 PM

Oh man, I love reading! I read a book a day if I can ;) My faves are Sue Graffton, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, James Patterson, Tami Hoag, VC Andrews, Anne Rice, etc...anything that can keep my attention for longer than a few minutes has my thumbs up :thumbs up My personal library has grown immensley, with many still to read - that reminds me, my Mom gave me a few VC Andrews...*runs off to grab a book :highfive: *

chico2 June 14th, 2009 07:22 AM

TwinTails,you read about the same as me,but add Jonathan Kellerman,Lisa Jackson,Patricia Cornwell to the list.:thumbs up

All the authors in the last 2 posts plus add Greg Isles. He was just recommended to me and I am already on his 3rd book.

I used to truly love Patricia Cornwell, but her books have become a bit too predictable and not too often published anymore. I do like the idea when an author brings the same character to the books all the time and you get to see the progression of them. Jonathan Kellerman is good for that too, and now his wife is creating a "book family" as well.

Love to read!Love mystery!:thumbs up

Dogmatic October 7th, 2009 01:23 PM

I have become a big fan of Isaac Asimov, and I am an avid reader of Stephen Baxter and Arthur C. Clarke. I guess I am a Sci-Fi fan lol.

dollface October 9th, 2009 11:46 PM

Favourite author for me is Sylvia Browne :D

FrenchiePaul August 21st, 2013 08:26 AM

It's hard to choose just one. I love G.G.Marquez's imagination as much as the imagination of J.K.Rowling. The paranoid psychological style of P.K.Dick or great fantasy novels of J.R.R.Tolkien and G.R.R.Martin (I am currently reading his book A Storm of Swords).

Barkingdog August 21st, 2013 09:27 AM

I could only bring books by one author it would John Steinbeck . I read one of his books when I was teenager end up reading almost all of his books .

Goldfields August 21st, 2013 10:38 AM

My tastes in literature are many and varied, I just LOVE reading, but because I was involved in the horse racing world, can't go past Dick Francis and now his son.

Samanta October 27th, 2013 11:41 AM

I love Jane Austin and Stephen King

Goldfields October 28th, 2013 09:28 AM

Hi Samantha, those two would be chalk and cheese. :) I like Stephen King, he's a master at scaring the hell out of me. LOL.

aprilster February 4th, 2014 03:38 AM

I'm too easily scared for Stephen King :clown:, although I hear he's a great storyteller. Which is the same reason I love John Irving's work, for him writing really is a craft

Cariboo2 February 15th, 2014 05:18 PM

Wow! Last thing I expected to see discussed on a pets forum! I'm a mystery fan. My current favorites are Michael Connelly and John Lescroart. I used to love the Cat Who books by Lillian Jackson Braun. Have enjoyed many of Sue Grafton's series but she's not one of my favorites.

I'm a mystery writer myself, and had to have a Siamese cat somewhere in my cast of characters, not to mention a Spitz named Peterbilt who was mistaken for a Pomeranian.

You should really get into his books, they're not all that scary ;) Mr King is also doing much better, financially, btw. ( [url]http://www.statista.com/statistics/275232/earnings-of-the-wealthiest-authors-worldwide/[/url] )
