#TopTenTuesday: Ten Authors I AutoBuy
First list that was really easy for me to put together. However, I fear that my choices are beginning to sound like a broken record. Have any of you noticed the same names tend to show up every week?
Rainbow Rowell has not written one thing that I have not fallen in love with nearly immediately. So yeah, anything and everything... I own all her books including the anthologies she has written for and will continue to buy her books unabashedly.
Garth Nix is most excellent and I have adored him for a very, very long time. He has written one of my favorite heroines - Sabriel! My daughter and son adore his books as well which makes him a fantastic addition to this list.
Jonathan Stroud snuck up on me. I had read the Bartimaeus trilogy but then he released an eerie middle grade series - Lockwood & Co. Such a very fun, spooky read but great mystery series with a supernatural edge to it.
Really, let us be honest, did anyone think J. K. Rowling would not show up on this list? Isn't she on everyone's list?
Marissa Meyer was one of those author romances that began with a love of the first book and then all of a sudden there were short stories and two more novels in the series. Suddenly I had no time because I was reading all the words in her Lunar Chronicles series. The rest is history, they say!
Cynthia Voigt, always and forever, will remain on my auto buy list. My daughter and I adore everything... EVERYTHING she writes - from Homecoming to On Fortune's Wheel to her Mister Max series. She jumps from YA to middle grade to fantasy and realistic fiction with the ease of a master story-teller.
Leigh Bardugo cannot be ignored. She writes characters who are amazing and charismatic and unforgettable. Six of Crows is one of my most anticipated books of this year!
Ransom Riggs fits right into our favorites up to the fact that Tim Burton will be directing the adaptation of Peculiar Children. Have you seen the promo artwork for the film?
Neil Gaiman usually always is a good bet for me. Yeah... anyone and everyone who knows me saw his name coming. The Graveyard Book and American Gods remain in my top 20 books of all time.
V. E. Schwab is my newest obsession. She writes and writes and just freaking writes all the time. Look at her books. How does she ever have any time for anything?! She's in the middle of getting a degree and moving and dang the lady is impressive. So are her stories. You need to read them.
