I used to be a huge fan of mystery novels back then, so my favourite author was Agatha Christie. The way she could set up the mystery for the grand reveal was marvellous.
It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it.

VC Andrews. I've still got a bunch of her paperback novels. I cannot bring myself to sell or donate them since she was such a favorite of mine when I was younger.

I was obsessed with Sidney Sheldon novels. I just couldn't put them down.

Mine was AC Doyle. I was so consumed with Sherlock Holmes that time. And also Agatha Christie. I can't remember reading anything else that time!

books+barefeet wrote:I loved Geoffrey Trease (Cue for Treason) until junior year when I discovered Ray Bradbury and loved him until I discovered Jane Austen in senior year. I still like them all and having gone through 4 years of university studying English Lit, I found about a dozen other authors who I love. But, I'll admit it, I still have a soft spot for Jane Austen- it's my comfort reading.
When I want deep- it's Timothy Findley, when I want funny, it's Angela Carter, when I want politically diverse, it's Edna O'Brien, when I want satire- Jonathan Swift. But Jane Austen is still like sinking into a warm bath after a stressful day.


I was also a huge Jane Austen fan in high school. :D
