Is there someone you will read no matter what?

One of mine is Elizabeth Berg. One of her books I read years ago left a really good impression on me and since then I have read all her books and wait for more.
Jane Austen is another if you didn't figure out my name!

I'm a Berg fan, too. Her latest book redeemed her in my eyes, lol. I am also a huge Jodi Picoult fan. My Sister's Keeper was just amazing. I'm reading Anne Tyler's Digging To America, and highly recommend it, too.
For good chick lit, I adore Jane Green.

Joshilyn Jackson - Her first novel (gods in Alabama) just went to PB and I picked it up on a whim at B&N. It is awesome. I read it in one day. It is a murder mystery/racial love story full of family secrets in the deep South. It's unpredictable and believeable. What a great first shot!
Her second is also out and I'm going to back to the store to search it out ASAP.
If she continues like this, she can count on me to buy every one.

I like Jodi Picoult too, I have read a few : My sister's keeper; Vanishing Acts, Mercy and her latest the Tenth circle. I have tried a few of Anne Tyler and I have more of her on my piles here but she is hit and miss with me. I will get to her someday. Yes Jane Green is good for chicklit along with Marian Keyes (Walsh series) and her other read alones and Jane Heller I like too.
Yes I have read Gods in Alabama. I look forward to her next!!!

I really like Anita Shreve too. Have you read The Pilot's wife?
Or Alice Hoffman's Practical Magic?

I really like Linda Fairstein (DA of Sex crimes in NY), Kathy Reichs (not really a fan of the show Bones that is based on her books), Mary Kay Andrews (Southern mystery), Lorna Landvik (just too funny), and Erma Bombeck (my reason for wanting to write).

I never heard of Lorna Landvik and will have to get one of her books. Is she a new writer or have I been in the dark??

Wow! There are so many--
Anne McCaffrey, Julian May, Mercedes Lackey, J.D. Robb (I am not fond of her in her Nora Roberts persona, though), Janet Evanovich, Diane Mott Davidson, Sara Paretsky, Kathy Reichs, Patricia Cornwell, Charlotte Bronte. Goodness, the list grows longer as I grow older.

My favorite female author is Barbara Kingsolver. Her books are funny, touching, and I love the way she effortlessly weaves information into her plots so you learn something as you read, almost without even realizing it. So far I've learned about coyotes, entomology, astrology, and Native American culture from her books.

My second favorite is Tabitha King, wife of that guy who writes horror stories. ;-) Her characterization is amazing. I don't always like her characters--especially the women--and I've been known to throw the book across the room as I'm reading because they make me so mad, but they definitely make a lasting impression on me, and I care about what happens to them.
