These faces belong to just a few of the people I will always speak of fondly and admire greatly. My imagination, my serious questions, my sense of humor, and my love of a good book have always been a part of me. But these people and their books have built on those qualities, and their words and ideas resonate in my imagination.

Here's to good authors! I can't imagine what this world would be like without them. 

Comment below: who are your favorite authors?

  1. Hurrah for wonderful authors!! You're right...without them, where would we be?

    Great list, especially C.S. Lewis and Eloise McGraw and Elizabeth Speare (I LOVE the Bronze Bow, so, so love it...) I have too many favourites to list these days. :D

    1. Yes, those would be some of my big favourites, too. (Except I love the Witch of Blackbird Pond more than the Bronze Bow--LOVE that book!)

    2. Oh wow. Yes. The Witch of Blackbird Pond. I can't really express how much I loved that book. It was my top favorite book for years and years.

  2. Oh, I just love these, I must say, I'm not familiar with all of them but I'll surely check out their works, thank you for sharing this with us xx

  3. Great list, I grew up on agatha Christie and l.m. Montgomery. Blue Castle was my favourite book as a kid :) another great author is Margaret Atwood.

  4. I think that I love Agatha Christi the most.... But I do love L.M. Montgomery's works! Some of my other favorite authors are R.M. Ballantyne and Louisa May Alcott. All of their books are SO pretty! <3
