I don't generally go for a book just because of the author, but certain authors' works do attract me more than once. So:

Jane Austen (I'm in the middle of reading Persuasion, which is the only one of hers I haven't read)
Neil Gaiman
Marilynne Robinson
Salina Yoon
Megan Frazer Blakemore
Kate Messner
Sarah J Maas (kind of... I more skim her stuff)
Natalie Lloyd
Agatha Christie

(Susan Savory) #4

I have a short list:

Simon Van Booy
Ellen Gilchrist
Aimee Bender
Edith Pearlman
Philip Pullman
Leonard Marcus (books about children's books)
Olivia Laing

Kate DiCamillo (middle grade)
Adam Rex (middle grade)
Nova Ren Suma (YA)
Andrew Smith (YA)

And, of course, I'm always on the hunt for obscure Maurice Sendak and Ruth
Krauss titles
