Top Ten Tuesday: Auto-buy Authors

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

When I was thinking about the authors that were to go on this list, I immediately thought of a few.  It took me a while to come up with a full 10 authors though.  I wanted to make sure these were actually people I would genuinely hear they were writing a new book and immediately think I have to have it!  That list is this list.

1. J.K. Rowling - I don't care what she write, or who she writes as, I will buy all of her books with the hope that behind the cover will be the eighth Harry Potter book.  I'm only sort of joking.

2. John Green - His books are heartfelt and make me think and feel deeply.  I love that he doesn't shy away from hard topics and his writing is great.  Plus, I really like him as a human being and want to support him in all his endeavors.

3. Marie Lu - I loved her Legend Trilogy and I've just finished The Young Elites and there is no mistaking that I love her writing.  I love the ideas that she puts down on paper and turns into truly engaging and incredible novels.

4. Marissa Meyer - I hope she is currently thinking to the future and planning her next big series because I am sure that after Winter, I will be craving more of her writing.  She's got me completely engaged in her books and so excited to find out what happens. (I'm pretty sure this is the most excited I've been since Harry Potter.  That's saying something.)

5. Noelle Stevenson - She is relatively new on my radar. (like in the last two months)  I've loved everything she has written/drawn.  It's smart and funny and just on the right side of ridiculous.  I will no doubt pick up graphic novels and comics by her in the future.

6. Rainbow Rowell - I have yet to read all her current works but if Fangirl and Eleanor & Park are any indication of what she is capable of she's already received a spot on this list. I mean, I read Fangirl and immediately bought Eleanor & Park.  I read that and immediately bought Landlines.  Do you see the pattern forming?  Soon I'll have to wait for her next books.

7. Markus Zusak - There aren't words to describe how much I love his writing and his storytelling.  He is definitely one of those authors that I wouldn't even bother to read what the book was about.  I'd just buy it and dive in.

8. Stephanie Perkins - Her books were just so fun to read.  I'd love to have more of her books in my life.  I did hear that her next book is going to be a horror story and I'm definitely intrigued by it.

9. Rick Riordan - I've read all but his Kane Chronicles and I'm thinking it's time to dive into those too.  I loved the story he weaved through both Percy Jackson and the Heroes of Olympus.  I enjoyed reading them so much.

10. Michael Buckley - He's on this list because I thoroughly enjoyed the Sisters Grimm books.  The other day I was in a book store; I saw his name on a new book and got really excited.  If that is not an indication that he should be on this list, I don't know what is.


  1. JKR, naturally, she obviously made my list as well XD Marissa Meyer and Rick Riordan are excellent picks too^^ I've only read two books by Rowell - and only loved one O.O but I'm planning on reading everything else and hopefully that one I didn't love was a fluke! I still need to read Marie Lu and John Green though :)

  2. I'm definitely with you on J K Rowling. I was kind of disappointed that The Casual Vacancy didn't feature any wizarding cameos. I've been meaning to check out Marissa Meyer's books for a while as I hear such good things about them but so far I've not gotten around to it.

  3. This is a great list. I have The Book Thief sitting on my bookshelf but I have yet to pick it up. I have heard it is a powerful book. I also adore Marissa Meyer and Rowling.
    Thanks for sharing.
