I think we all have them - the author that we go to in the event of a reading slump, or if we want something comforting and familiar.

Mine is, oddly, not a YA author or even a speculative fiction author, but an historical author: Sharon Kay Penman. She writes sprawling historical epics, my favourite of which is The Sunne in Splendour, and her grasp of human relationships is sublime.

Who is yours?

Robin Hobb, Lynn Flewelling & Scott Lynch are the authors I re-read the most.

Stephen West (stephenwest) | 1 comments I'll read anything by Neal Stephenson. He's never let me down, despite how varied his output can be. Also love the Jack Reacher books, I let myself read one every few months...

Jamie (Equizotic) | 4 comments I'm so typical, haha. If I have a slump I go right back to Harry Potter, gets me back in the mood ;)

I'm also addicted to Lois Lowry when I want something simple that's guaranteed not to disappoint.
