2014 Favorite Author List {Read}

Our debut Favorite Author List {Read} for 2014.

There is a link list in the sidebar with Favorite Authors, which is up-to-date.  It is based on the 4- and 5- star rating in my Goodreads’ reviews, simply a total for all books read by the author.

The list of Favorite Authors on my Goodreads’ page is ranked in order of the ratings’ average for each author.  Hence, the two lists are different.

The Favorite Authors who are dead do not have links, and therefore are not on the link list.  The list in this post is all-inclusive, in alphabetical order.  Since this is the first, it may not be comprehensive, and will be improved upon in years to come.


First, the Top Ten by average ratings (4- and 5- stars only):

  1. Ann H. Gabhart (5.0)
  2. David McCullough (5.0)
  3. Jan Karon (4.6)
  4. Stephanie Grace Whitson  (4.5)
  5. Jeanette Windle (4.5)
  6. Jane Kirkpatrick (4.3)
  7. Francine Rivers (4.3)
  8. Sarah Sundin (4.3)
  9. Miss Read (4.2)
  10. George MacDonald (4.0)
