I'm terrible at answering this type of question. But the newest author added to my favorites list is David Mitchell. Cloud Atlas and Slade House are stunning! His style is amazing. I highly recommend to sci fi fans!

George Orwell. Ironically, I'm not a huge fan of his novels, but the way his experiences as a British soldier in occupied India taught him about humanity, and the way that shows in his essays and short stories, sometimes in the simplest and most subtle of ways, is nothing shy if beautiful.

My favorite, I'd have to say is Neal Shusterman. He's always had that action packed drama that I crave in a book. Unfortunately, he hasn't made any sequels to some cliffhanging stories of his, but I guess that keeps me wanting more.

Honestly, I love a few authors, but I will settle on Jeff Kinney because he makes Greg's life bizarre and funny. He really understands this generation of kids.

I loved Thoreau but my favorite author is Robert A.Heinlein. He hid a lot of philosophy in his books and commentary about society.
My Favorite quote of his is "I am free, no matter whatrules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them obnoxious I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do."

I'd have to say my #1 favorite author is Neal Shusterman who has a very good series called "Unwind" and it's a dystology. It's basically about a society where children live in a world where their parents and/or caregivers can offer them to be 'unwound' which is basically just using their body for parts. It's like organ harvesting, but there s a lot of truth in the series though. You'll just have to read it for yourselves to get it.

My #2 favorite author is James Dashner, who is the author of The Maze Runner series. It's a very enticing series that'll have your jaw dropping. Seriously.
I've read both of these series and was completely engrossed in each of them, especially The Maze Runner. Dashner is great with character development, pacing, and suspense. This was probably my favorite series as a teen!

My all-time favorite author is Marcus Zusak. I find his character development parallel to none. He does an incredible job of creating characters who are purely human and flawed, but have redeeming qualities that you can't help but fall in love with. His words make me cry (in a good way) in nearly every book. He focuses a lot on family bonds, and how far one will go to protect the ones they love.

As of right now my favourite is Vera Nazarian based soley on her Atlantis Grail series. I found the series to be extremely developed in both plot and character, and the romance is NOT the sole focus of the books.

While I like many authors and will read pretty much any book you give me, I have to say Stephen King is my favorite. He has inspired me in many ways and has helped me through some hard times.
You can, you should, and if you’re brave enough to start, you will.
-Stephen King
The place where you made your stand never mattered. Only that you were there…and still on your feet.
-Stephen King

He also inspired me to read more.
Come to the book as you would come to an unexplored land. Come without a map. Explore it and draw your own map.
-Stephen King
