Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I'd put on Auto-buy

hosted by the Broke and the Bookish.

1. John Green - I will read whatever he writes, no questions asked.

2. J.K. Rowling - The queen of my childhood.

3. Markus Zusak - He has a mastery of words, it's so enchanting.

4. Stephanie Perkins - Even though I've only read one of her books, I enjoyed reading it so thoroughly that I will be picking up her books for years to come.

5. Jane Austen - Yes, she's dead.  BUT this will not stop me from buying beautiful copies of her books over and over again.

6. Neil Gaiman - His way of telling a story is incredible.  I love reading his tales, dark and otherwise.

7. Kate DiCamillo - The way she writes makes me feel like a child again.  I found her books recently and absolutely love them.

8. Maureen Johnson - Her personality alone makes me want to read everything she's ever written, not to mention the fact that she's a great story-teller.

9. J.R.R. Tolkien - He's another one those authors that if he were to write from the grave I would pick it up instantly.

10. I have a feeling this author will be found in my TBR pile.  There are so many books that I'd like to recommend that I haven't even read yet because I've heard so many wonderful things about the authors.  So number ten is to those authors I will discover this year.


  1. Nothing wrong with adding a dead author to a list. I agree with your choices. A few like Gaiman and Green I left off because I enjoy the books, but not must have for me.
