Top Ten Tuesday auto-buy authors

I am really excited about this week's TTT. I hope you are to. Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at The Broke and Bookish.

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)

1) Melina Marchetta (Author of Jellicoe Road and The Piper's Son)- I will buy everything this woman puts out there. She is a genius. I have not read a book by her that I did not like. If you have read anything by her you know the reason for my obsession. 

2) Megan Hart (Author of Dirty and Precious and Fragile Things)- I have been hooked on Hart since Dirty and I have bought any and everything by her since then. I don't even need to look to see what the book's about or how it was received by other readers. I am a loyal fan. 

3) John Green (Author of Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars)- I knowwwwwww. But after TFiOS, how could I not? John Green could write about unicorn killing astronauts and I would buy it, read it, and find it the most influential book the decade. 

4) Lauren DeStefano (Author of The Chemical Garden Trilogy)- After read The Chemical Garden trilogy I have fallen deeply inlove with Lauren's writing. It makes me SO happy. It is rather beautiful. So, I will buy her books so that I can read them and support her, so she can feed her cats. 

5) JR Ward (Author of The Black Dagger Brotherhood series and The Fallen Angels series)- I know that I can sometimes sound like a broken record, but... I will probably read anything JR Ward decides to publish. Why? Because I am obsessed. I have never been so invested in a story/characters like I have been with the vampires of her series. It's ridiculous, I know. Shoot me. 

6) Alma Katsu (Author of The Taker and The Reckoning)- I have read and loved both of Alma's books. I find them incredibly well written and the stories are fascinating. I am very excited to see what she has in store for us next. I am certain it will be great. 

7) Anne Stuart (Author of Fire and Ice and Shameless)- I have been reading Anne's books for years. I want to say since I was 12 years old (that is inappropriately young). I have been addicted ever since. I buy her books without shame, and without fail (although now I do it from the comfort of my own home). 

8) Rachel Gibson (Author of Not Another Bad Date and Nothing but Trouble)- I love contemporary romance, however I find that some people just know how to do it well. Rachel Gibson is one of them. I love her stories and they never let me down. 

9) Cynthia Hand (Author of the Unearthly series)- Although I haven't finished the series yet. I know that I am a HUGE fan of this woman and I will always buy her books. How can I not? However this may change once I have read Boundless

10) Huntley Fitzpatrick (Author of My Life Next Door)- I absolutely loved Huntley's debut My Life Next Door. I loved it so much that it put her on my auto-buy hands down list. If you have not read that book, I don't know what you are waiting for. 


  1. Love this list! Amazing authors. new follower.
    MY TTT

  2. I love Stuart! So happy to see her on a list. I like Green, but he's not on my must buy right away list. Checking out the rest of the authors listed.

    Jessica @ Literary, etc

  3. Great list! Several of these authors are on my tbr list! :)

  4. I didn't think that Melina Marchetta was as well known as she is outside of Australia. It's nice to know her work is being recognised.

    I've also got Melina on my Top Ten.

    I'd like to extend an invite to list your blog at YA Blogosphere it's a directory listing for all YA-related blogs. If your interested pls email me on yablogosphere@gmail.com.

    Have a great week!

  5. Goodness, I keep seeing Marchetta on all these top ten lists - I REALLY need to check something out! Great list :)

  6. John Green seems to be on everyone's list...and I haven't read anything by him! I really should get on that! Great list :)

    Here's my Top Ten!

  7. John Green made my list, too! And I've only read one book by Melina Marchetta, but I have a feeling she'll be on my auto-buy list after I read another one of her books! Great list!

  8. I havent tried any of these authors save for John Green, but I couldnt include him on my list since I've ony ever read The Fault...
    Top 10 Tuesdays
    Waiting on Wednesday

  9. I think we only share The Melina Marchetta and Rachel Gibson (have you heard what her next book is about? I haven't though I admit I haven't read the last one 'cause I didn't like da cover).

    Anyway, I read John Green once - tried to, okay? but didn't make it that far. I do have the Fault in Our Stars though.

  10. Mmm I haven't read anything by Melina Marchetta. But, since you enjoyed her books, I think I'm going to try to read one of her books soon.

    Thanks for sharing! :)

  11. I would probably want to try out a book about unicorn killing astronauts by ANY author, just to see how they pulled it off, haha! It's very impressive and encouraging that you put Huntley Fitzpatrick on you list even after only one book! Must be good then!!


I love comments! So please leave them and I will make every attempt to return the favor!
