My Favorite Authors

I decided that it was time to post something other than a book review on here. I thought I would give those of you that actually read this blog a taste of something new. So, I've decided to talk a little about my favorite authors. I read a lot of YA lit, but at the end of the day I always come back to these two authors.

My two favorite authors are Dean Koontz and John Grisham. I could sit and read their books all day everyday. The first book that had a real impact on me as a reader, and to this day is still my favorite book, was "Intensity" by Dean Koontz. The plot was amazing! It was also the first book I read that switched points of view. I literally couldn't put the book down. Grisham also has a way of keeping me on the edge of my seat. I once read his book "Bleachers" in 4 hours. I don't know what it is about these two guys but they just have a way of captivating me as a reader.

I have a few other books in my TBR pile to get through first, but after that I am anxiously anticipating reading the Frankenstein Series by Koontz. It looks amazing.

Here are a few book suggestions from each author if you are interested:

Seize the Night
Odd Thomas
The Husband

The Broker
The Appeal
Runaway Jury
A Time to Kill

I hope you enjoyed this post. Who are your favorite authors? Feel free to leave them in the comment box or via a link to your blog!


  1. I only read the Odd Thomas books but I really liked them.The plot was great and I fell in love with characters. I'll be sure to check out Intensity as well.

  2. You should really check out some more Koontz stuff. If you liked Odd Thomas you should try Seize the Night or The Taking. And, as you said, you should totally check out Intensity.
