Favorite Reads

My favorite authors and books will be listed here, with a link to their Amazon author page and individual book pages through the Amazon affiliate program. If I particularly like an author but have not read all of their words, I will list what I have read and enjoyed - which may or may not include the entire duration of any series they may have written or be writing (The Sword of Truth series being a prime example!)

I also may simply list authors, for the sheer fact that I've read nearly all of or all of their works and have enjoyed all of them enough to consider them that consistent of an author. Conversely, I may list single books, but not the author, in a case where I consider individual works to be better than the author's library as a whole.

Favorite Series

Please note - in order to be listed as a favorite series, it must be complete (at least as far as I know). Books that are part of a series that is not yet complete will be listed under Favorite Books. In addition, if I've read the whole series, and I didn't enjoy all of the books to the same degree, or if the ending didn't justify the moments of dislike, I'll list individual books of the series under Favorite Books, with a reference to the series.

The Wheel of Time - Robert Jordan
Kushiel's Legacy* - Jacqueline Carey
Moirin's Trilogy* - Jacqueline Carey
Lightbringer - Brent Weeks
The Iron Fey - Julie Kagawa
Daughter of Smoke and Bone - Laini Taylor
Mistborn - Brandon Sanderson
Legend - Marie Lu
Guards of the Shadowlands - Sarah Fine
Servants of Fate - Sarah Fine

* I always feel the need to note with these books, darker themes are explored. Some events in the books may act as triggers for those who have experienced trauma (particularly in the final book of the Kushiel's Legacy trilogy), even though they are explored in a very distinct manner relating to both the mythology of the world, and ancient Zoroastrianism. Most definitely intended for a mature audience.
