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

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and Bookish

1. John Green

Do I really need to explain this one? I've loved everything I've read from him. He could publish a cookbook and I would still buy it....

2. Stephanie Perkins

Anna and Lola made me swoon. There is something about her characters that make it so easy for me to love them. I just want more. It doesn't matter what kind of book it is.

3. Gayle Forman

She wrote some of my favorite contemporary. I would buy anything she writes.

4. Ruta Sepetys

I think that if an author can write something like Between Shades of Gray and Out of the Easy, they can write about everything...

5. Victoria Schwab
Her writing is simply gorgeous. That's enough for me to put her on my Auto-Buy list.

6. Michelle Hodkin
If what she writes next is half as good as Mara Dyer, I'll love it.

7. Julie Kagawa
She is a master in her genre. Seeing Julie Kagawa's name on a book makes it a must-buy for me.

8. Leigh Bardugo
Read Shadow and Bone and you will understand why she is on my list.

9. Richelle Mead
I've loved all her YA books, and I've enjoyed her adult books. I think I will love about everything she writes next.

10. Courtney Summers
Her books make me feel all the things, and she's Canadian! One of my favorite authors.

What is your Top Ten this week? 


  1. This is marginally relevant, but I'm so glad authors take head shots now- it's nice to put a face to a name!

    Jeffrey Eugenides is definitely on my list.

    1. I've never read any books by Jeffrey Eugenides, and I'm a little ashamed of that. I've always wanted to read the Virgin Suicides.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. oh yes I love your list. SO many of my all time favorite authors
    Marissa @ Rae Gun Ramblings

  3. Another Victoria Schwab fan! I loved The Archived, though I haven't read The Near Witch yet. Soon!

    Pretty Deadly Reviews

  4. I totally get this list! I love Gayle Forman and put her on mine as well! And I have read some by the other authors, or have their books to read! Great list!

  5. I'm dying to read Victoria Schwab! Great list and a few authors I haven't come across, but am checking them out. Others such as Green, I enjoy, but aren't part of my must have.

  7. Julie Kagawa is definitely an instant-buy for me. I also liked The near witch from Victoria Schwab and I can't wait to read The archived.


  8. Wow. What an incredible list. GREAT authors!!

    Beth @ YA Vixens
    Vixen's Top Ten!

  9. Amazing list! I agree with almost every person! I can't believe I forgot to add John Green to my list! But, we share a few :)


    1. It's easy to forget one! There are so many amazing authors out there.

  10. Julie Kagawa! Seriously, that woman's stories are like CRACK.

  11. Aw, Steph Perkins and Richelle Mead almost made it to my list,but not quite. I think I'm the most picky reader of all time! Lol :))
    Top 10 Auto-Buy Authors + Books That Made Me Think
    Waiting on Wednesday

    1. Well, it's hard to only pick 10! There are so many authors whose books I would buy without worrying what it is about.

  12. 1, 2, 7, & 9!! DEF agree! John Green needs NO explanation :) I REALLY need to read The Archived!

    1. You should! I absolutely loved it, and if you've read The Near Witch and loved it, I think you'll like this one.

  13. I totally forgot about Gayle Foreman when I was compiling my list. Shame on me. I will mostly likely buy everything she writes. I have yet to read Just One Day though. I'm nervous I won't like it. even though everyone else loved it. John Green also made it to my list as well.

    Happy Reading.

    Sara @ Just Another Story

    1. Well, there are so many authors that could make it to this list. I can understand forgetting one. I have probably forgotten some amazing authors, and I'll be really ashamed when I realize that.
