Top Ten Of Our Auto-Buy Authors

For future Top Ten Tuesday topics & info on how to participate, click here!

Lauren's Picks

1. Margaret Atwood

 I already own all of her books, but there are some I've bought again.. just because I lose books after I shove them in my friends' faces for them to read.

 I just discovered Ahlborn this year and I've already read all of her books except her latest, which is on my Amazon wish list!

Jamie's Picks

3. Gayle Forman:

 I will read anything this woman writes no matter the subject and her books are always ones that I buy. ALWAYS. Even when I was unemployed I would ALWAYS spring for the latest Gayle book or the new paperback. She's just so brilliant that I know her books will demand to be reread.

4. Sarah J. Maas:

 I love the Throne of Glass series but when the first book in her new series came out I was excited yet nervous because the fae are not my thing. But I read it anyways because I felt that strongly about anything Sarah writes and OF COURSE SHE WOULD MAKE ME FALL IN LOVE WITH A FAE STORY. Everything of hers is insta pre-order
Seconded by Daisy!!
Thirded by Jana!!

5. Stephanie Perkins:

 Point in case --she's the writer of my FAVORITE contemporary companion novels and she's coming out with a horror novel, a genre I don't LOVE, and I WILL be buying it.
Also seconded by Daisy!
Also thirded by Jana! We girls have awesome taste!

Daisy's Picks

6. Sarah MacLean:

I LOVE Sarah MacLean's historical romance and basically whenever I hear she's got another book coming out I'll go and pre-order it, I don't even really need to know what it's about, this lady is brilliant and knows how to bring the funny and the swoons! Highly recommended if you're looking to branch out into historical romance and not sure where to start.

7. Jill Mansell:

Jill Mansell is my queen of adult contemporary romance, I think I own pretty much all her books. She always leaves me with lovely fuzzy feelings and a smile on my face at the end of a book and I love that.

8. J.K. Rowling:

BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY. Harry Potter defined my teen-hood, I mean, I probably wouldn't even be blogging if it wasn't for Harry Potter and my discovery of fanfiction and starting to read EVERYTHING in English and finding Goodreads and just a huge snowball effect. I also would probably never have picked up The Casual Vacancy if it hadn't had her name on it, because it really didn't sound like my kind of thing, but it was actually really great! But I secretly (or not so secretly) wish that she would write another fantasy novel, though I'm happy with anything that comes from her brilliant mind.

Jana's Picks

9. Tracey Garvis-Graves

I've loved every book Tracey has ever written, but my favorite one will always be On the Island. This book is absolutely the most profitable gamble I've ever made, and I've gotten a great friend out of it!

10. Veronica Rossi/half of "Noelle August"

I LOVED Under the Never Sky so much. And I have also been loving the Boomerang books (can't wait to read Bounce!). It takes a great author to write YA swoon and NA swoon, so I basically love Ms. Veronica.

Who are your auto-buy authors??


  1. Yay Stephanie Perkins! Lover her novel, Anna and the French Kiss and cannot wait for the next two. (Newbie reader of hers, here.)

  2. Sadly for my wallet, this list could've been so much longer. The ten authors I chose were striking talents that I thought would appeal to a larger variety of readers. However, even now as I view my TTT List, there's actually very little deviation among what these authors write.

    Great list for you all though. Lots of ladies. Way to represent. :)

  3. Rowling, Perkins and Maas are also on my list. Earlier this year I read the collection My True Love Gave To Me and loved Gayle Forman's short. I hope to read her novels soon and I imagine they will auto-buys for me too :)

  4. Great choices. I love Margaret Atwood and own a lot of her books. JK Rowling is wonderful, too. I also wish she would write another fantasy novel.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  5. How did I *not* know that Veronica Rossi had a pseudonym?! Going to check out these books now! And after reading Isla and the Happily Ever After, Stephanie Perkins is definitely on my auto-buy list!

  6. Great list!! I included Stephanie Perkins this week as well. I'm currently reading the final Harry Potter book, but I'm not sure about Rowling's newer books. I'm sure I will get to them eventually. Sarah Maas is an author I plan on reading very soon. I already picked up a copy of Throne of Glass.

    Here is my TTT: http://www.jacquesbooknook.blogspot.com/2015/08/top-ten-tuesday-my-auto-buy-authors.html

  7. Stephanie Perkins and J.K.Rowling made my list too I love both ladies books. Many of the other authors you have chosen I really want to check out.

  8. Wow, I've got some serious reading to do, I'm ashamed to say I haven't read anything by most of those authors *hangs head in shame*. I need to check out Under The Never Sky though!

    Here's my TTT.

    Mikayla @ Mikayla's Bookshelf

  9. Hey, this is an impressive list!

    I'm sure J.K. Rowling will make her appearance on a lot of lists, as she's totally brilliant!

    I've been wanting to read Margaret Atwood, Stephanie Perkins, and Sarah J. Maas for some time now; hope I get to them soon!

    I am not familiar with the other authors you've mentioned, but I will check them out on Goodreads!

    Here's my Top Ten list:


  10. Buy handmade greeting cards from this website. http://www.madhubani-art.in/

  11. I nominated you for the Blogger Recognition award!http://trishasanook.com/2015/08/22/nominated-for-the-blogger-recognition-award/

  12. Daisy- The Inheritance Cycle is on my list for this week as well. I held off on the last divergent boos as wekk, due to spoilers but finally finished last spring. Under the Never Sky is one I still really want to read (there's a top ten idea: Series' we want to read,but haven't started).

    Lauren- I think I have a Deborah Harkness book onmy TBR list but haven't read either of these series'.

    Julia-The series of the month I think with the last release. I still need to start this series.

    Jamie- Vampire Academy is great! Mortal Instruments is good too.

    Happy Reading!
