Top Ten Auto-buy Authors


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's Top Ten Tuesday asks bloggers to list their top ten auto-buy authors. The following authors are not in a particular order.

1. Rainbow Rowell is pretty much the queen of contemporary. Her novels are perfect in every way and I cannot wait for Carry On to be released!


2. Melissa Landers captivated me with her Alienated series. I am hoping a third book in the series will be released but for now I am looking forward to Starflight.


3. Stephanie Perkins made me fall in love with Anna, Lola and Isla. Why did I take so long to read those books? They are fantastic and I cannot wait to read more by Ms. Perkins! Even her short story in My True Love Gave to Me is perfect!

4. Emery Lord made me cry twice when I read The Start of Me and You. I picked up a copy of Open Road Summer and I cannot wait until When We Collided comes out.


5. Stacey Lee's debut novel is emotionally gripping. So much goes on in Under a Painted Sky and it has become one of my favorite books. I cannot wait to read Lee's upcoming novels, Outrun the Moon and Touch Me Not.


6. Cassandra Clare has been an author I have been following since the early 2000's when she wrote the Draco Trilogy fan fiction. Soon after I fell in love with all of her Shadowhunter series. I have been waiting for Lady Midnight to be released and I am sure it will not disappoint.

7. Mike Curato wrote and illustrated two perfect picture books about a little elephant and a little mouse. Little Elliot, Big City and Little Elliot, Big Family are timeless books and are perfect companions to the Olivia books by Ian Falconer.


8. Akihisa Ikeda wrote and illustrated Rosario + Vampire and Rosario + Vampire: Season II and I absolutely fell in love with the graphics and the writing of the manga. I hope to see more works by him in the near future.

9. Rick Riordan is pretty much the king of Middle Grade! I have enjoyed all three of his Middle Grade series and I cannot wait for Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Sword of Summer to be released.


10. Kim Liggett's debut novel, Blood and Salt, is hauntingly beautiful and I am sure Liggett's future novels will be gorgeously written.

  1. Sadly for my wallet, this list could've been so much longer. The ten authors I chose were striking talents that I thought would appeal to a larger variety of readers. However, even now as I view my TTT List, there's actually very little deviation among what these authors write.

    Great list. I could've added quite a few of yours to my list and still been delighted in my choices. Of course it would've not been the neat ten that it is suppose to be. :)

  5. Cassandra Clare is one of my favourite authors! That's so cool that you've been following her for so long as well. I haven't read Attachments by Rainbow Rowell yet so I couldn't really put her on the list.

  6. Stephanie Perkins and Cassandra Clare made my list as well. Melissa Landers is author who I also really like but She never made my list. To narrow it to 10 was hard.

    1. I agree it was hard to narrow down the list to only 10 authors but I am totally happy with my choices. I am glad Stephanie Perkins and Cassandra Clare made your list as well.
