Greetings one and all! I am here today with another Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the lovely folks over at “The Broke and the Bookish.” Today’s topic was a bit difficult for me – which authors are on your “auto-buy” list. In their words this means that you would buy their stuff no matter what they wrote. You love their work that much. And to be honest, I am really picky. As much as I love the authors I read, I don’t always run out to get the very next book just because of the name. But there are a few that trigger this in me, so here they are.
Top Ten (or Four) Authors on My Auto-Buy List
1. John Green – Ever since I started watching the Vlogbrothers on YouTube, I have loved listening to John Green. The first book of his that I read was Paper Towns because he was writing it at the time. Once I read it, I was hooked. His latest book, The Fault in Our Stars, is the only book I’ve ever pre-ordered that wasn’t Harry Potter.
2. J.K. Rowling – Speaking of Harry Potter, Rowling is another on my auto-buy list. I feel a bit bad saying that, since I haven’t actually bought The Casual Vacancy yet. But I’m going to, just because I adore her so much.
3. Dianne Sylvan – I am hooked on her Shadow World series, but her other non-fiction stuff is also excellent. I am sitting on pins and needles waiting for Of Shadow Born to come out next month, and I will definitely be at Barnes & Noble looking for it when it does come out.
4. Maureen Johnson – I don’t own all of Johnson’s books, but I have loved every one of them that I’ve read. Speaking of, I believe that the next book in her Shades of London series, The Madness Underneath, comes out today. Might have to swing by Barnes & Noble on my lunch break!
And that will do it for my list. Short, but sweet. So which authors are on your list?
