That would be Jan Karon and Francine Rivers. I have read each of theirs as soon as the books come out.

I have a couple authors I love to read everything they have written. I really like Danielle Steele, her books are interesting, and she has so many I am amazed that every book is different. I also love V.C. Andrews although I have had to stop and start on hers sometimes because they could become so dark at times.

Well it was class four and the author was Enid Blyton. I just had to read everything written by her.

For me, it was probably J. K. Rowling and the Harry Potter series. The first one came out when I was only 3, so it wasn't until the 3rd book that my mum began to buy and read them with me. As we got through the first few quickly, by the time book 4 came out we had got through the first 3. I was always anticipating the next book and was so excited whenever a new one was announced.

Another author I loved as a child was Lemony Snicket and the Series of Unfortunate Events books. I got the first 4 books from the local library but they didn't have the rest of the series, and I remember hinting to my mum for months that I would love the set for Christmas (which luckily I did get) because I couldn't stop at book 4, I had to read them all!

Also, I had read every Jacqueline Wilson book as a child, but since the age of around 16, I haven't read any of her new books, so I can't say I've read everything of hers anymore!

Kurt Vonnegut. I found a copy of my dad's "Breakfast of Champions" and was hooked. So different and funny. I would gather up my money and head to the bookstore or flea markets to find the next book.

The Hary Potter series. And then the Eragon ones. Kind off at the same time.

Sarah Dessen! I’d mostly read mysteries and fantasy novels in my early teens and she was my kind of my first taste of sort of romantic YA novels. I read one and then immediately read as many of her other books as I could get my hands on.

I guess Carolyn Keene and Franklin W. Dixon would count. I was addicted to the Nancy Drew and Hardy Brothers series in elementary school through junior high!

When I was a kid, my kindergarten teacher read us all of the Junie B. Jones books. I was so obsessed with them that when I got a pet rabbit in second grade, I named her "Junie Bunny Jones"
In middle school, I started reading the Percy Jackson series, and since then I have all of Rick Riordan's books--I insist on buying all of his books, even though I haven't had the time to read the latest three. They are on my bookshelf waiting!
Sometime in High School, I went through a cheesy romance phase, so I have all of Sarah Dessen's novels on my bookshelf, as well. Currently, I am making my way through all of Sarah J. Maas's books.

Malcolm Gladwell! I love the way he makes trivial things sound so interesting and intellectual.
