- Danielle Steele because she keeps me entertained the whole book through.
- My favorite author is John Green because his books are filled with mysteries and I love his way of writing.
- Shakespeare because he is just timeless. Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte because when I read their books they take me to another world and the women in their stories are strong and what ever they dream of doing they do and that inspires me to be and do what I want to do.
- Elizabeth Gilbert, because she wrote one of the most inspiring and life-changing books I’ve ever read.
- Jane Austen, because her books are an insight into characters who we can relate to from a time when people and places were different.
- Madeleine L’Engle is my favorite because she was able to write for a range of readers. She wrote children’s books, YA, adult, fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. My second favorite is Jane Austen. Her works transport me to the nineteenth century in England, which is my favorite setting to read about.
