My Three Favorite Authors

We all have authors that no matter what they release, you will read their book without even reading one word about it. These authors have moved us with their writing time and time again. And that is why they are our favorite. Find out my three favorite authors and some of their books that have made them my favorites.

My Three Favorite Authors

My three favorite authors are Kristin Hannah, Brandon Sanderson, and Neil Gaiman. As you may have noticed, they are fantasy and fiction writers. Those are easily my two favorite categories and these thre authors do it better than most in my opinion.

Kristin Hannah

Author Kristin Hannah has written books such as The Nightingale, The Four Winds, The Great Alone, Firefly Lane, and Magic Hour. Her writing style is best described as haunting and beautiful. She has a way of telling stories that make you feel all kinds of emotions. And while the novels are fiction, they could happen to anyone. You can see some of my book reviews for her down below.

The Great Alone: Book Review

Alaska is a beautiful and terrifying place to live and Kristin Hannah utilizes it perfectly in her novel The Great Alone. Find out why you should read this amazing novel by one of the best recent authors! The Great Alone: Summary The Allbrights move to Alaska on an impulse. Ernst, who is a former POW…

Book Review: Magic Hour

When Ellie comes across a girl on a branch with a baby wolf in her arms, her small world becomes the headline of the country. Now, it is up to her and her sister Julia to solve the mystery and protect the little girl.

She has many more books and I plan to read them in the near future. Have you read any of her novels? If you have, which one is your favorite. A side not: I have read The Nightingale but have found it hard to write a book review for it. If that is a review you want to see, let me know and I will make sure I finally get around to writing it.

Brandon Sanderson

One of my new favorite authors has to be Brandon Sanderson. His novels have gave me a bunch of new books to read which I am very grateful for. Finding new books worth reading is always difficult and Sanderson’s epic fantasy novels have kept me entertained.

The Mistborn series is one of my all-time favorite series and one many people should check out. That is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Sanderson novels. Skyward is also a great series and it is ongoing. The first novel that I read by Sanderson was the Reckoners and I remember how eager I was reading it. And lastly, the novel that has made Sanderson the go-to author of fantasy novels; The  Stormlight Archive.

The Way of Kings: Book Review

The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson follows a myriad of characters that have to face enemies, monsters, assassins and much more while surviving the flaws and biases of the world they live in

Skyward: Book Review

Spensa is determined to become a pilot and prove her father’s innocence. But the flight academy is nothing like she imagined it would be.

Mistborn: Book Review

Kelsier wants to overthrow the Lord Ruler and with the help of Vin and his crew, they will wage war until one or both of them fall.

There are still more Sanderson books to read which is great for me. I am in the middle of reading The Stormlight Archive and it is a lot of pages. Even then, I have enjoyed the first two books and can’t wait to see what else is in store.

Neil Gaiman

Lastly, an author I have enjoyed over the past decade is Neil Gaiman. His fantasy novels are different from anything else out there and yet are some of the best stuff I have come across. Some writers are gifted and he is one of those writers. There is a reason he is as popular he is and when your novels can translate to timeless movies, then you are doing something right.

He has numerous classic works and some of the ones I read include Coraline, The Graveyard Book, American Gods, and The Ocean At the End of the Lane. Besides these, he has lesser known works that are also great such as Stardust and Neverwhere. If you haven’t read any of his stuff yet, then you have a lot of options to choose from


Those are my three favorite authors. If they release anything, I am sure to give it a read. Have you read anything by them? If not, will you be reading any of their works in the future?

    We share similar interests in Sanderson and Gaiman, so I guess I’ll have to check out Kristin Hannah as well. Thanks for this, and let’s see where this new author takes me!

    Kristine Hannah. I would like to read her.

    I’ve read Gaiman’s Norse myth retelling and Coraline, and I’ve also transcribed interviews with him so know he’s as lovely as he seems! My favourite ever writer is Iris Murdoch. I thought Anne Tyler was another, but not quite so sure now. Barbara Kingsolver is another massive favourite and I leap on every new book of hers.
