is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish.
This Tuesday's theme is...
What makes an author a favorite? Do they write our favorite books? Or are they wizards at some element of writing--prose, characters, world building, storytelling--and even if we don't love their books we still give them a high ranking? And when we meet the wizard, do we think it's cool, or do we bow down to the wizard? What makes an author a favorite? That is an excellent question. It seems too easy to just pick ten people who wrote my favorite books, or ten people who I really, really want to meet (which will be a topic for discussion in a couple weeks). I have a few authors that I just know are favorites, but I need ten. So who makes the cut and how do they make it? That is an excellent question.
