Top Ten: Authors on My Auto-Buy List

**Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish Top Ten Tuesday is a countdown spotlighting, well, anything bookish!**

Top Ten Five Authors on My Auto-Buy List:

1. Laini Taylor: I am in love with Laini Taylor's masterful prose; she can whisk me away to any magical world and I wouldn't mind in the slightest. Keep in mind, I've only read Daughter of Smoke and Bone by this author, but I am absolutely in love with her dynamic characters and creative world-building skills, any and everything Laini Taylor is fine by me.

2. Wendy Higgins:  Kaidan from Sweet Evil, anyone? Thought so, enough said there. Seriously though, this author wowed me with her d├ębut, so much so that my copy of Sweet Peril is already on pre-order. Yup, you know you've made it when you aren't just "auto-buy" worthy, but pre-order auto-buy worthy! 

3. Tahereh Mafi: I'm still reeling from how good Unravel Me is, pretty sure I will buy anything this woman writes! Her style of prose is very different, what with the slashes through almost every second word and semi-free verse, but a good different to be sure. I need that last book in the series and when it releases, it'll be an immediate buy, if not pre-order. Also, Warner. I have to support Warner! 

4. Stephanie Perkins: Because she gave me Anna and the French Kiss! I somewhat devoted to her writing for life. That book was a perfect milkshake of romance, contemporary and comedy; give me writing by Stephanie Perkins and I wouldn't mind a bit!

5. Susan Ee: I am still waiting for the next book in the Penryn and the End of Days series, Angelfall #2. I loved the first book, and cannot wait for the second, so I guess that technically that makes Ee an auto-buy author since I need the next book so badly.

What books would you drop all others to buy??


  1. Tahereh Mafi, Ann Aguirre, Maggie Stiefvater, Brenna Yovanoff and Darynda Jones are pretty much on my auto buy list. Oh, and let's not forget Ilona Andrews. I'd gladly buy their grocery lists. :)

    1. Lol Agreed! I have yet to read anything by Maggie S., but I have a copy of Raven Boys sitting on my shelf and that seems like an excellent place to start. Thanks for dropping by, Maja :)

The Truth And Nothing BUT...

Going by FTC guidelines, allow me to point out that all the novels reviewed on this blog were either bought by me, or given by an author or publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Those books received from Authors and Publishers will be stated clearly as such, as will the ones purchased by myself. There is no shady business going on; no coercion, bribery or compensation has or will ever be received in exchange for any reviews. These thoughts are mine, wacky as they may be, and my honest opinion is all you can truly expect. Still reading? You should be off checking out those awesome reviews ;)
