Tuesday Thingers – Favorite Authors

Today’s Question: Favorite Authors. Who do you have named in your LT account as favorite authors? Why did you choose them? How many people share your choices? Can you share a picture of one of them?


I have thirteen favorite authors listed.  These are definitely not all of my favorite authors, but they are great authors who I either added randomly when I thought of them, or when I happened to click on their LT author page.  I alphabetical order:

  • Davd Boling
  • Doug Dorst
  • David Ebershoff
  • Margaret George
  • Sana Krasikov
  • Jhumpa Lahiri
  • C.S. Lewis
  • Jean Plaidy
  • Michael Pollan
  • Ariel Sabar
  • J Scott Savage
  • Dr. Seuss 
  • John Steinbeck 

I add someone as one of my favorite authors if REALLY love one of their books…and if I happen to think about the favorite authors feature.  Because I have been reading lots of ARCs by lots of first time authors, I am the only person who has ‘favorited’ quite a few of these authors.  I’m not going to actually count how many people share my favorites because a LOT of people have favorited Steinbeck and Lewis.  Jhumpa Lahiri, Margaret George, and Jean Plaidy are pretty popular also, as is Michael Pollan.  Evidently I have an odd collection of favorites, though, because only four people share three or more (actually only three, nobody has more) of my favorite authors.
