I was up till 5am last night reading Enders Game, which we’ll toss to the number three spot, since one and two must go to my favorite author.
My favorite author for quite a while has been Brent Weeks, who wrote The Night Angel Trilogy and is currently writing the third book in the Lightbringer series.
We’ll give number four to Oliver North, for his trilogy of Mission Compromised, The Jericho Sanction, and The Assassins.
I think number five is going to have to go to Joelle Charbonneau for The Testing, greatly looking forward to the next book in that series.
So I guess that makes it:
Lightbringer Brent Weeks
The Night Angel Trilogy Brent Weeks
Enders Game Orson Scott
Mission Compromised, Jericho Sanction, The Assassins Oliver North
The Testing Joelle Charbonneau
But of course, a great amount of credit must go to The Hardy Boys, since they comprised nearly 90% of my reading from like 4yrs old up till I was probably 10 (Yes, I started reading pretty early, my parents saw to that. And I never had much interest in picture books, haha.)
Edit: Although I must say, I could quite easily do a top twenty list for my favorite books, and that might even just scratch the surface of literature I enjoy, there’s a reason I write like I do.
