1. Do you have a favorite author?
I have several favorites. At the top of the list is probably Janette Oke. Her stories are so simple, but they are touching and I love the relationships she creates and the values she teaches.
2. Have you read everything he or she has written?
I actually have read every book written by her. I think the only other authors who's books I have read all of is Dan Brown and Stephenie Meyer, and that's not too hard since they each haven't written very many so far. ;)
3. Did you LIKE everything?
I have liked all of her books. There are some that I like more than others, and that I will reread many times throughout my life. The Love Comes Softly series, and The Bluebird and the Sparrow are some of my favorites. I probably won't read some of her other books again. I did like them, but they just didn't touch me the same way. And there are so many new books to read, I don't reread a book unless I really love it.
4. How about a least favorite author?
I can't really think of a least favorite. If I start a book that has a lot of profanity or is inappropriate, I usually won't read any more books by that author. Also, I have a love/hate relationship with Nicolas Sparks. I really like his style of writing, and his characters, but I hate that someone always has to die. I haven't read any of his books in a while because it is just hard for me. I like healing books that have happy endings.
5. An author you wanted to like, but didn’t?
I can't think of a specific author. I want to like books that are more deep and profound and theological, but I have a hard time reading that kind of stuff. It's an appreciation that I am working towards gaining.
