My Top Ten Auto-Buy Authors

top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.

  1. Libba Bray
    • I LOVE Libba Bray. Everything she writes is incredible, diverse, and captivating. At this point, I don’t even read descriptions of her books before I buy them; I trust that I’ll love whatever story she decided to write this time.
  2. Patrick Ness
    • I have yet to read a Patrick Ness book that didn’t amaze me. His understanding of human emotions and motivations is incredible, and the stories he creates are gripping and insightful.
  3. Megan Whalen Turner
    • Her Queen’s Thief series is my favorite series EVER. I can’t count how many times I’ve reread those four books. If she ever published the rest of the series, I would shove people out of the way to buy it first. She has promised two more books to the series, but the fifth book has a practically blank Goodreads page. The fangirl angst is real.
  4. Brandon Sanderson
    • Okay, so I haven’t read (or bought) everything that Brandon Sanderson has written. But I plan to. And when he publishes new books for the series of his that I have read, I will (of course) buy them. Very. Quickly. Because he is freaking talented.
  5. Maggie Stiefvater
    • Like Sanderson, I haven’t read everything that she has written. Once I knew I loved her writing, I tried to read her first series (the Shiver one), but it didn’t grab me at all. However, all of her new books are amazing, and I will buy anything she publishes (once again, probably without looking at the plot at all).
  6. Elizabeth Wein
    • Code Name Verity goes down as the best historical fiction I’ve ever read, and the most emotionally destructive book I’ve ever sobbed my way through. I haven’t read her other two books, but I own them, and I will read them, the next time I need a good cry.
  7. Ally Carter
    • OMG I actually own every (YA) book that she has written. A literal auto-buy author, and I love all of her books. They are comfort food in the form of books, and I have read her Gallagher Girls series at least four times (and the earlier books at least 6 or 7 times).
  8. Stephanie Perkins
    • I loved her Anna/Lola/Isla series, and if she publishes any other novels, I would pick them up, no question. Her contemporary style is magical.
  9. Naomi Novik
    • I’ve fangirled over Uprooted a lot on this blog (the awestruck review here). I haven’t read her Temeraire series yet, but I own half of it (my sister is reading it currently).
  10. Kristen Cashore
    • Kristen Cashore writes strong female characters like no one else. Her fantasy stories have complex plots, breathtaking romance, and powerful characters. I love her books so much, and I can’t wait for more books in the Graceling/Bitterblue/Fire series to come out.

Who are your auto-buy authors? Have you read any of these author’s books? 

Happy Tuesday!

  1. I have only read one of Libba Bray’s books, Beauty Queens and it was really good. There’s a few authors that are really good, but it takes a lot for me to read everything, think the only author I have done that for is Maria V snyder, she is amazin 🙂
