We know the cliche goes, “You are what you eat," but it should really be, "You are what you read.” Or rather, who you read. One's favorite author can say a lot about who they are as a person. Want to know what your favorite says about you? From Faulkner to Salinger, we've got the answers!

Who's YOUR favorite author? Let us know in the comments!

J.D. Salinger
1 of 12
You, the J.D. Salinger fanatic, are attracted to introspective thought. You may prefer to look at life through a darker lens than your peers because to you, life is a psychological challenge as opposed to a bright and breezy romp. Unbridled optimism has always been an alien concept to you, as you tend to have a more realistic view of the situations you are put in.
