Top Ten Tuesday #3: Authors That I'd Put On My Auto-Buy List


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists. For the list of past topics and future schedule, click here.

Authors That I’d Put On My Auto-Buy List


Brenna Yovanoff


I pretty much devoured The Space Between and Paper Valentine, so
that pretty much puts Brenna on my Auto-Buy List 😀



Jeyn Roberts


One of the very first ARCs I’ve ever read when I was at Vervegirl was Dark Inside and I loved it! Jeyn has a wonderful writing style and the pacing in her books are just so fast.


Michelle Hodkin


Who wouldn’t want to buy everything that Michelle buys? Have you not read any of the Mara Dyer books yet? I suggest you do because she writes twists and turns with a paranormal romantic style.


Sophie Kinsella


I’ve been a fan of Sophie’s ever since I picked up the Shopaholic series. She has a way of writing hilarious female characters that always get into trouble.


Meg Cabot


Of course I’d pretty much buy anything by Meg Cabot. I’ve read her books since I was a teenager and I’m so excited she’s releasing more novels in the Mediator series which sparked my interest for paranormal love!


Kendare Blake


Who else can creep me out at night and have me stay up and read all night long? Kendare is just too awesome for words, so I can’t wait for her next series, only this time it’s about mythology 😛


J.K. Rowling


Now I DNF’d The Casual Vacancy, but I know I will eventually come back to it. It might have to do with the fact that I keep comparing her writing to Harry Potter, and you can’t compare that series to anything. I will always check out J.K.’s books no matter what anyone says.


Tahereh Mafi


Everyone pretty much knows I’m a fan of Tahereh..Any book she comes out with will be pre-ordered and bought!


Rick Riordan


I’ve only read two of Rick’s books, but I absolutely loved them. SO many amazing adventures, and characters to love. Rick is definitely on my list!


D.J. MacHale


D.J. is one of my favourite middle grade/children authors and I will pretty much devour anything he writes. I can’t wait to read my copy of SYLO too!

    Honestly, besides J.K. Rowling and Rick Riordan, I have never read any of the books by the other authors listed… guess that means I should probably start now. 🙂

    I definitely agree with some of yours like JK Rowling and Rick Riordan! Also on my list would be Stephen King, PC Cast and Stephanie Meyer!

    Yeah, Rowling will always be given a chance (at least for the time being).

    I completely agree with what you said about J.k. Rowling. I did the same with Casual Vacancy but I will never dismiss her books completely.

    Sophie Kinsella and Meg Cabot are on my must buy and read list as well. I love the comedy and romance in them, irregardless of which genre they’re written in.

    Agree with JK Rowling. Glad to hear that I am not the only who didn’t finish Casual Vacancy. 🙂

    Love Shatter so love Tahereh too… 🙂 Enjoy Maya Dyer series…

    I would add JD Robb, Julia Quinn, Julie Anne Long and Eloisa James…

    So good to see D.J. MacHale on the list!! If my list were longer, I would’ve totally included Tahereh Mafi and Michelle Hodkin! Fantastic list!

  19. Jaime Lester

    February 26, 2013 at 11:53 PM

    Yep, I am with you on most of them. I love D.J McHale, Brenna Yovanoff blows my mind, you can’t go wrong with Michelle Hodkin and she is great for creepy, Meg Cabot is fabulous, Kendare Blake is the queen of scary, Tahereh Mafi is Tahereh Mafi, and J.K Rowling needs absolutely no explanation. With such great authors on your list, I will have to check out the ones that I haven’t had experience with yet!

    AAHHH So many awesome authors XD Rick Riordan and Meg Cabot are on my list too. Read more Percy Jackson!! SO amazing. Fave Meg Cabot book is defintely Avalon High. Her books make me feel better inside 🙂

  21. Lauren

    Another Sophie lover 🙂 She made my list too! Your list is great… most of those authors are on my TBR so I can’t wait to read them 🙂

  22. Zino

    February 26, 2013 at 8:13 PM

    Rick Riordan and Meg Cabot definitely. But I didn’t know she was writing another book in the Mediator series! I loved that series, you’ve got me all excited now! 🙂

    Oh! I have yet to read Shatter Me!!! I agree with J.K. Rowling, although, I still need to pick up The Casual Vacancy… never heard of DJ MacHale, will definitely be looking him up now! I’m always looking for new MG for my kiddos!
    Great list, thanks for sharing 🙂

    I totally forgot about JK Rowling – how did I do that?!

    Shatter Me is coming in the mail. I’m going to read it. For real!

    Here’s my TTT!

  26. Lisa Richards

    C Feehan, PC Cast, J Armentrout, JD Robb, jeez, I have so many auto buys that I’m surprized that I have room for newbies–but I do.

  27. Susan (Bloggin' 'bout Books)

    February 26, 2013 at 1:01 PM

    Totally agree on Rowling (except when it comes to CASUAL VACANCY) — if she ever publishes another MG or YA, it will for sure be on my auto-buy list.

    Glad to have found you via TTT!

  28. Shelley

    February 26, 2013 at 12:11 PM

    Kendare Blake made my list, as well, and right now I’m flipping between Girl of Nightmares (which is soooooo good), and a book I won in a giveaway(that is sooooo bad) so that I keep reading the second book–I can’t read more Girl of Nightmares until I read so much of the bad book…and before you ask, since I got it for free, I feel somewhat obligated to read and review it, and by gosh I’ve made it this far I WILL FINISH IT even though the mildly boring book has devolved into a pile of hot steaming mess.

  29. Brandy @ A Little of the Book Life

    February 26, 2013 at 11:02 AM

    Great list! I love Brenna Yovanoff as well. And JK Rowling! 🙂 I haven’t read Kendare Blake or Tahereh Mafi yet, although they are both on my shelf. I can’t wait to see if I agree.

    My TTT

    Yay, another D.J. MacHale fan 😀 he’s on my auto-buy list, too! Great list! I haven’t tried only 2 of the authors on your list, the rest I have, and I enjoyed them all 😀

  32. Debby (Snuggly Oranges)

    February 26, 2013 at 6:01 AM

    Great list! Totally agree on J.K. Rowling, Tahereh Mafi, and Rick Riordan, they made my list as well. I don’t know the others as well as those… I really should read the Shopaholic series one of these days.

  33. Lola (Reading by Lamplight)
