Since I don't read a lot of the same authors, I'll just post books/series. Here we go...
The Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks
A Song of Fire and Ice by George R. R. Martin
The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss
Rot and Ruin by Jonathon Maberry

There's loads more...I just can't think of them right now.

My method is usually find an author I like, and stick with them for a while until I read most of their books, and then move on. Ocassionally I hit a jackpot, and find an author with many books that interest me.

Not really for me. I go by random books in the library that I think look good. If I really like an author I'll get more of their books, or if a series is started that I like, but generally I can't remember half the books I read. Some of them just don't stand out, and I go through them so fast (about 1 per day) that only the good ones really stick.

My favorite books would include:
"Percy Jackson and the Olympians" series by Rick Riordan
"Heroes of Olympus" series by Rick Riordan
"The Kane Chronicles" series by Rick Riordan
They are awesome books if your into Greek, Roman, and Egyptian mythology or just like a good read

Been reading lots of short fiction by Stephen King lately. Recently finished Different Seasons and Four Past Midnight. Now starting on Just After Sunset.

"Life Expectancy" (2004) by Dean Koontz
"Wyrd Sisters" (1988) by Terry Pratchett
"Christmas Carol" (1843) by Charles Dickens
"Little Women" (1868) by Louisa May Alcott
"Timeline" & "Jurassic Park" from Crichton even though I wasn't supposed to mention them tongue

Crichton and Koontz are the only authors I read for their entire catalogue. From Koontz I also particularly love the Frankenstein series as well as several older titles
