Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of their bloggers over at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join.
This week’s topic is: Top Ten Authors That I’d Put On My Auto-Buy List (basically an auto-buy list is no questions asked..you love this author so much that no matter what they wrote next you’d buy regardless of genre or subject matter)
I have a mix of young adult authors as well as more adult authors this week – and a few who dabble in both.
Richelle Mead – I started reading her Georgina Kincaid Succubus series early last year. From there I read all of the Vampire Academy and Bloodline books. I have recently bought the first of the Dark Swan series and can’t wait to read it. This is an author that I pre-order as soon as they become available to order. I’m very excited about her new adult series Gameboard of the Gods which is released later this year.
JK Rowling – I loved Harry Potter. So I went out and bought A Casual Vacancy as soon as it was released… and ever since that day it’s been sitting on my bed side table just waiting for me to get around to reading it.
Melina Marchetta – Contemporary or Fantasy – this is an author that I absolutely adore and I would read anything she wrote.
Veronica Roth (Divergent), Marissa Meyer (Cinder), Sarah J. Maas (Throne of Glass) – these are authors where I’ve only read one or two of their books in a particular series but loved them. Will definitely be reading the rest of the aforementioned series!
Meg Cabot – I’ve read almost everything she’s written. Even those books under pseudonyms. Definitely an auto-buy author for me. Even if I’ve bought Abandon years ago and still haven’t read it. I’ll get there some day!
Kresley Cole – I fell in love with her paranormal romance series, Immortals After Dark, and followed her to the YA novel, Poison Princess. For me, she excelled in both genres and I’ll follow her anywhere. The same could be said for Kelley Armstrong, Jennifer Estep and Sherrilyn Kenyon – authors that I adore their paranormal/urban fantasy for adults who also write fantastic YA novels.
JR Ward, Patricia Briggs, Larissa Ione, Charlaine Harris, Katie MacAlister – all paranormal/urban fantasy writers whose books I love and buy as soon as I see they have a new one released. All of these are writers of adult fiction rather than young adult.
So that’s my slightly longer than a top ten list of my auto-buy authors. Do we have any in common? Are there any authors on your list that you think I should know about? Please leave me a comment telling me your thoughts on this week’s top ten 🙂
