My Auto Buy Authors

I noticed a bunch of people posting their Top 10 Auto Buy Authors lists this past Tuesday as part of The Broke and the Bookish's Top Ten Tuesday meme. I didn't take part but still wanted to post my own list because I was so fascinated reading other blogger's lists. If you want to find out more about The Broke and the Bookish's meme (totally seems like fun) stop by their  website for all the details.

Here is my list of authors that I would automatically buy anything that they put out. This was harder than I expected. There are plenty of authors I enjoy, and some of them may make my auto buy list in the future. I was only able to come up with 8 authors who right now no matter what they wrote about I would read it.

1 Michelle Hodkin

I fell in love with her writing, and her characters right from the first book. The second cemented her as a must read for me. Her ability to pull off mind blowing twists, and the emotions she causes me to experience within the pages will keep me coming back for each and every book.

2 JK Rowling

It goes without saying that the Harry Potter series is epic. I also enjoyed The Casual Vacancy, which even though it was so different was just as well written. She's an author I've come to trust, and know that I will be pulled into a story that captures my imagination.

3 Bethany Griffin

A single novel was all it took for me to fall in love with Bethany's writing. Her flawed characters leap off the pages, and her delicious descriptions capture the scene perfectly. I am looking forward to not only Dance of the Red Death, but whatever else she might be writing next.

4 Tahreh Mafi

Her prose. Those two words sum up why after just two novels I will gladly read anything this author writes. Her writing is so beautiful, lyrical, and unique.

5 Katherine Longshore

I was drawn to Katherine's book due to my love of history. Luckily for me I got a well written, well researched debut that I adored. After finishing Tarnish, a novel in which Anne Boleyn truly comes to life, Katherine Longshore has a lifetime auto buy pass. She creates amazingly human characters that you'll swear her books are biographies instead of fiction.

Stephanie Perkins

The perfect book to read as a "pick me up". Funny, sweet, charming, and romantic are the best ways to describe Stephanie's work. It also manages to feel fresh and new. It's the emotional reaction I have to her books that makes me want to immediately add anything she writes to my "to be read" pile.

Cassandra Clare

Cassandra Clare has created two series that I adore. Her characters are what keeps me coming back. She writes characters that get to you, and you instantly care about. The intricate plots, and how they are woven over two (soon to be three) series is insanely impressive, and the world she created so rich. I will gladly return to the Shadowhunter (or anything else) world for as long as Cassandra Clare wishes to write.

8 Gayle Forman

After reading Just One Year I can safely say that I am in for whatever this author publishes. Her contempory novels have all been huge favourites of mine, and with the characters of Willem and Allyson I have become a life long fan.

I seem to have a lot of authors with just 2 books out. This just proves that when I become addicted to something, it sticks. All of these authors have provided me with a wonderful journey taken with characters I'll never forget.

  1. I DEF agree with your #'s 2, 6 & 7! I still need to read my copy of The Casual Vacancy though :)


I love comments. Thank you for stopping by my blog and thank you even more for leaving me a comment.

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
