When I really enjoy a novel, I have to read every book that same author has ever written. Over the years I’ve accumulated quite a few authors who I’m basically a hardcore fan of…
If you’re a hopeless romantic and enjoy chick-lits – these writers are right up your street.
My little reading addiction started with Nicholas Sparks.
I’ve read every single one of his books, some of them more than once. My absolute favourite is ‘Dear John’. It’s a classic Romance novel that provides goosebumps at all the right times. There were a few books which I weren’t massively in love with (Safe Haven and The Notebook), but due to my loyalty to Nicky – I committed to seeing them through.
I shamelessly read all of Adriana Trigiani’s books in one summer and then made my friends read them too.
‘Lucia, Lucia’ was the one that really got my attention. After that, I read ‘The Big Sone Gap’ trilogy and then I just had to read all the other books too. Every single read made me wish I was Italian. There wasn’t one book I disliked. Adriana is an amazing, massively underrated writer.
Of course, Marian Keyes is on this list..
Marian Keyes is potentially my most favourite author of all time. The way she writes about serious topics but still keeps her sense of humour fascinates me every time I read one of her books. ‘Watermelon’ was the very first novel of hers that I read and it’s probably still my favourite. ‘Anybody Out There?’ closely follows it. I have not yet read her newest book, but I’m itching to get my hands on it.
Cecelia Ahern never disappoints
For some reason I was reluctant to read Cecelia’s books to begin with. After I’d heard great reviews for ‘Love, Rosie’ she had my attention. I fell in love with her style of writing from the very first chapter. Out of all the authors I’ve read, Cecelia is the one I really look up to. I’d love to write a book as good as hers one day. ‘If You Could See Me Now’ is my all-time favourite so far.
My newest obsession is Rainbow Rowell.
Her books are different to what I normally go for, but I love them nontheless. I’d recommend ‘Eleanor & Park’ to anybody. Rainbow has a way of making you fall in love with characters that you really don’t want to like. Her novels are all unpredictable and they always leave me wanting more!
