FIR 2012 Question: Go-To Authors

Fall into Reading at Callapidder DaysI’m a little over one month into the Fall into Reading challenge at Callapidder Days. So far I’ve finished three books from my challenge and I’m very close to finishing my 4th, which puts me much further along into the challenge than I’d honestly anticipated being just one month in – yay!

This week Katrina asked challenge participants the following question:

Is there an author (or authors) whose books you are always watching for? Do you jump to snatch up the latest literary offering from certain specific authors? In other words, who are your go-to authors?

I guess in a nut shell my answer is absolutely – being a fan of a good book series, I definitely have a lot of repeat authors on my To Read list whether that means continuing a series that I love or simply following a favorite author – I’m definitely guilty as charged.

Some of my favorite “Serial Authors” include: Janet Evanovich, Lisa Lutz, Stephenie Meyer, L.M. Montgomery, Jasper Fforde, Libba Bray, Scott Westerfeld

Some of my “Sure Thing” Authors include: Jennifer Weiner, Alice Hoffman, Christopher Moore, Philipa Gregory, Jen Lancaster

And honestly there are a lot more that I could mention, authors whom I read every book in the series but maybe haven’t tried their other series yet or simply aren’t coming to mind right at this moment. Like I said, short answer is simply yes.

How about you? Which authors do you consider a “sure thing”?

  1. I am a fan of Max Lucado! I am working on the classics now and I have not read more than one book by any author. I will be visiting Victor Hugo again. It took me some time to get into his work but I totally enjoyed it. Louisa May Alcott, Jane Austen, C. S. Lewis, and Jules Verne are all great!


  2. For years, I’ve been on the watch for everything new from Anne Tyler, Amy Tan, Alice Hoffman, Armistead Maupin, Maeve Binchy, and David Sedaris. More recently, I’ve been reading through anything written by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, Chris Bohjalian, Pamela Ribon, Melissa Bank, and Sarah Vowell.


  3. I haven’t been reading as many series books lately. I have been reading books by a lot of new authors. I have also been leaning toward books that have a beginning and an ending all in one book. I have a few Evanovich’s books on my TBR pile which are getting old very fast, maybe this winter I will get one or two read.
