If frequency, or number of books read is any indication, then my favorite author is clearly Stephen King. And, even without counting, if you asked me, that’s the answer I’d give you.
I can’t say I’ve loved all of this books. However, I read the entire Dark Tower series twice. I also really enjoyed The Talisman, Misery, and many, many others. One of his most recent novels, Fairy Tale, is excellent.
Coming in a distant second is Piers Anthony. I read approximately 24 of the Xanth novels. I feel like I read a few more than that, but I think the names might be familiar because I had intended to read them, not because I actually did. Xanth #47 will be published this year, so it looks like I have some catching up to do! I also loved The Incarnations of Immortality series, as well as some of his other, shorter series, although I’m not sure I finished those either.
Third on the list is Louise Penny, with the beloved Inspector Gamache books, followed by Diana Gabaldon, author of the Outlander series, which I adore.
