David Sedaris, he writes humorous memoirs and vignettes that are equally hilarious and heartwarming. My favorites are Holidays on Ice, Me Talk Pretty One Day, & When You Are Engulfed in Flames, but I've never read a bad book by him tbh. 

My favorite poet is Richard Siken, but I have soft spots for Andrea Gibson, Audre Lorde, Maya Angelou, and most other POC and/or LGBTQ poets. 

Michael Pollan is probably one of my favorite food writers, but I also love Anthony Bourdain's books. He had such a great way of speaking and writing.

  • Neil Gaiman - childhood favorite
  • Stephen King - my writing guru tbh, I don't necessarily like all his books, but his writing is something I aspire to
  • Chuck Palahniuk - spiritual favorite
  • Leigh Bardugo - favorite author currently, I love everything Grishaverse and she's really a good writer too.

For a while it was VC Andrews until I found out most of her books are ghost written >.< so I'd probably say Darren Shan, Gregory Maguire, or Anne Rice.

Changes all the time.

 

At the moment John Green, I love the way to me anyway he doesn't just tell you a story he makes you feel it.

Maggie O'Farrell - for After You'd Gone.

Taylor Jenkins Reid - for Daisy Jones and the Six (based on Fleetwood Mac a huge fan) + Evelyn Hugo - so so well thought out. 

 

Controversial now but JK Rowling - I'll forever have a special -place in my heart for the Harry Potter series and how it grows with you as you age. 

 

I've also just started the debut book / memoir by Ashley c Ford Somebody's Daughter and she has such a unique and intelligent way of writing about her childhood. 


"Insanity is a logical response to an insane world".

 

Stereotypes have their place but life is a Spectrum and if you don't see that you miss out on so many of the colours.

 Bukowski. I've read every single book of his I could get my hands on, and he's the author I enjoy reading the most.

Kathleen Duey :/ the resurrection of magic saga was all I remember about early high school. For years I've been waiting on the next book, but I just found out that she passed last year after struggling with dementia for nearly a decade...

Depends on mood and what I feel like reading, etc, but usually Stephen King, Haruki Murakami and Sayaka Murata are right at the top on a regular basis
