I was tagged by Marie of The Boston Bibliophile for this meme!
1. Who’s your all-time favorite author, and why?
This is a hard question. I've been saying my favorite book has been The Great Gatsby for a number of years now, ever since I read it in 11th grade. But I haven't really read much else by him so I wouldn't consider him a favorite author. I don't know if I could consider anyone a favorite! There is no one I run right out to buy books by except JK Rowling, but I still wouldn't say she's a favorite author. Man you're got me stumped!
2. Who was your first favorite author, and why? Do you still consider him or her among your favorites?
I think Roald Dahl was my first favorite author. I remember just loving Matilda and the Witches in particular. I would definitely consider him still a favorite in fact I've been meaning to try and reread his books and read the ones I haven't. I also really loved Ann M. Martin's for The Babysitter's Club as well.
3. Who’s the most recent addition to your list of favorite authors, and why?
Probably Chris Ware (he's a comic book artist) I just read The Acme Novelty Library #18 and just loved it.
4. If someone asked you who your favorite authors were right now, which authors would first pop out of your mouth? Are there any you’d add on a moment of further reflection?
Adrian Tomine, Daniel Clowes, F. Scott Fitzgerald, JK Rowling, Malcom Gladwell, Anne Brashares, Audrey Niffenegger.
