Because of college, I read mostly classic literature, but I like fantasy and sci-fi a lot. I read a lot of Neil Gaiman, Joe Hill and Ursula K. Le Guin. A bit of Arthur C. Clarke (Childhood's End is my second favorite sci-fi novel, because The Left Hand of Darkness from Le Guin became my favorite after reading it) and Isaac Asimov (I haven't finish the Foundation series yet). To narrow it down (but not so much) I read mostly: Contemporary American (my undergrad thesis is about Bret Easton Ellis' American Psycho and Don DeLillo's Cosmopolis), 19th Century Russian (Dostoevsky mainly, but also many other authors because I took three years of Russian language in college), 19th Century English (Percy Shelley, William Blake, Mary Shelley - I'm a Romanticism guy, so anything from this period goes to my reading list), 19th Century and Early 20th Century Portuguese (Eça de Queirós and Fernando Pessoa, mainly), and any century Brazilian, since I'm Brazilian.

Currently, my favorite author is Kurt Vonnegut. I plan on reading all of his books and to make an annotated translation of one of his works as my Master's Degree thesis, but I don't know if that's going to happen because my advisor isn't answering my e-mails.
