So hard to just put down favorite...but right now I would have to say that Brandon Sanderson has become my favorite author. His Mistborn series is awesome! His new stormlight series is hands down the book that I most anticipating and eager for. I check his website just to check his progress bar. If only Patrick Rothfuss would implement a progress bar...sigh.
I love the Mistborn trilogy, as well as Warbreaker and Elantris. And The Way of Kings was just incredible (book two is apparently coming in the fall!). Patrick Rothfuss is also an amazing author, although I haven't gotten around to reading book two of The Kingkiller Chronicles yet. I kept asking for books for birthdays/Christmas and now I have a stack of seven books from at least a couple years ago that I haven't read yet.
My favourite book, however, would be a toss-up between The Warded Man by Peter V. Brett or The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch.
My favorites include Catch-22, Count of Monte Christo (Where the CC get their name), Three Musketeers, Robinson Crusoe, and anything Dumas and Camus.
Basically I love the classics. They are classics for a reason.
