Top Ten Tuesday: Auto Buy Authors


So I'm thinking that this list is going to be no surprise to those who regularly read this blog. But since today's prompt over at The Broke and the Bookish is which authors will you automatically buy their books, no questions asked.... I'm ready to list them all again!

My Top Ten Auto Buy Authors

1. Markus Zusak.... hello. What's there even to say? :)
2. John Green.... I love his stuff and his books make me happy.
3. Maggie Stiefvater... she is a newcomer to this list, but after the last couple books, I think I'll be buying.
4. Brandon Sanderson... with a little qualification here. I will buy his adult fantasy, but so far I haven't felt the need to buy his MG things. (I have just the one.) And the adult fantasy I haven't kept up on, but I will get there.
5. Shannon Hale... local famous author who writes amazing books. I'll be buying.
6. Ally Condie... ditto for Ally.
7. Patrick Rothfuss.... he has me hooked on the world he's created, and I can't wait for more. When he does start a new series with a new world, I'll be there for that one too!
8. Dan Wells.... I don't care what he writes, I will read it.
9. Suzanne Collins... what will she come up with next? I'll buy to find out!
10. Melina Marchetta... I would like to list her here, but so far, I've only read her books from the library. Let's fix that!

Which authors will you automatically buy? Do we share any of the same? Who should I add to my list?

  3. There are a few authors on your list that I haven't read anything by! I'll have to get on that. You know Green and Zusak made my list too!

  5. I've liked each of John Green's books, and I've only read one by Melina Marchetta and liked it too. I'll be reading more by her if my library purchases my suggestions. :)

  7. I own and have read most of Hemingway's books. I'll buy anything by Geraldine Brooks and Anne Tyler. I have most of Shannon Hale's books too.

  11. I can't believe you picked Markus Zusak. I mean, you hardly ever talk about how much you love him! =P LOL. I'm eager to see what Suzanne Collins comes up with next, and I think Shannon Hale might end up on my auto-buy list one day. I know Princess Academy was a great start! :)

    1. Jenny: I almost forgot him and then I was like, wait, is he NOT the author I bought a freaking 30$ book that I already read? That says a lot.

  14. Ooh. We have three in common, and you have several on here that I seriously considered. Melina Marchetta and Dan Wells, in particular.

  15. John Green is on my list, too (http://worducopia.blogspot.com/2013/02/8-authors-id-read-anything-by.html)
    I hadn't thought of Suzanne Collins, but you're right--I definitely want to know what she'll come up with next!

  16. I can't wait to see what Suzanne Collins will come up with either! She made my list too! Awesome list! I need to try a John Green book...more to read!

  17. I haven't read most of these authors, so I need to get on that! Definitely like Shannon Hale and Suzanne Collins. J.K. Rowling is a must-buy for me. I would have a hard time narrowing down the rest though!
