I loved R.L. Stine’s Fear Street series all through high school and there were these books that looked like they were diaries that I loved but I can’t remember what they were called. I also loved Nora Roberts.

Sadly, I wasn't much of a bookworm in school. Think the only books I read back then were The Hungry Caterpillar and Shivers

John Grisham. I thought his crime thrillers were phenomenal. And I still do. As a Second Language English speaker, his books such as A Time To Kill, The Client and The Firm were a greet deal in increasing my vocabulary and polishing up my grammar for my English classes.

My favorite author was Judy Blume of Are You There God? It's Me Margaret. It really wasn't cool to be a bookworm for a little caramel girl in the late 70's, but by the time I was in high school, I read Harlequin Romances and anything I could get my hands on while being in a teenage domestic violence relationship. Today, I read and write all I want. I have even published a book.

R.L Stine all the way!
Goosebumps were my favorite! The first time I feel in love with an author's writing style and the first time I found love in a series of books! Now I'm hooked on Murder, Mysteries and any book that has a series!
Thank you R.L Stine!

Phyllis Whitney and Laura Ingalls Wilder were two of my favorite. I also enjoyed many of the classic books while in high school as well. Corrie Ten Boom wrote a few good books that I read during high school as well.

There's no way I can pick. C.C. Hunter, Kresley Cole, Christopher Paolini, Victoria Aveyard, Marissa Meyer, Kiera Cass, Veronica Roth, and Cassandra Claire were all my favorites.

C.S Lewis probably; or at least he was the one I was more excited about.

In high school I was obsessed with LM Montgomery and Lurlene McDaniel.
