10 favourite fiction authors

It’s no secret that I love reading and it’s even less of a secret that I adore Irish fiction.


I sometimes get emails asking about my favourite authors so I thought I’d put it here on the blog for everyone to see.

  1. Maeve Binchy * – try Quentins or Tara Road
  2. Joanna Trollope – try Brother and Sister, or Daughters-in-Law
  3. Dorothy Koomson – any of them are good. Start at the beginning or with Marshmallows for Breakfast
  4. Sinead Moriarty * – In my sister’s shoes was my second, and favourite.
  5. Liane Moriarty (these two are not related!) – What Alice Forgot is her famous book; I loved The Husband’s Secret
  6. Marian Keyes * – of the latest books, I loved The Mystery of Mercy Close
  7. Sheila O’Flanagan * – read Yours Faithfully or Someone Special
  8. Patricia Scanlan * – Love and Marriage, and seeing as we’re coming up to Christmas, Coming Home for Christmas
  9. Cathy Kelly * – I liked The Honey Queen and Best of Friends
  10. Emily Giffin – Heart of the matter is my favourite, and then Something Borrowed

*All Irish authors 🙂

Have you read my 3 own books yet?

  1. Live Organised
  2. 31 days of easy organising solutions
  3. 31 days of enough time

If not, I’d like to invite you to check them out.

On an interesting note, I can’t read crime novels any more since having kids. I tried… and realised I really don’t enjoy them anymore. Isn’t that strange? I was the biggest fan of all the famous crime novelists before (just check my Goodreads!)

So tell me two things: who are some of your favourite fiction authors? And is there any genre you used to read that you no longer do, for whatever reason?

PS If you’re on Goodreads, make friends with me and tell me you read the blog 🙂

  1. Me and my sisters was my favorite Sinead Moriarty. Love your recommendations!

  2. Try cozy mysteries to give you the crime fix without the gruesome.

    My favourite authors aren’t in your preferred genre :p I love Brandon Sanderson’s work, Terry Pratchett, Nora Robberts/J.D. Robb, selected Neil Gaiman, selected Trudi Canavan. Mostly though, I’ll read most fiction – if it grabs me. Also Dorothy Koomson, and Marian Keyes ftw!

  3. And yet I read more crime now that I have kids! I like Deon Meyer!


  1. […] Most Irish fiction (Roisin Meaney – but here are my favourite authors) […]
