Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. Check out her blog for more info!
Happy Tuesday bookworms! This week’s prompt was auto-buy authors, and I’m super excited for it. I’ve also gained a few recently…what else is new? So here they are, in no particular order: the authors I’d buy anything they write, even if it’s just three lines written on a piece of toilet paper.
ONE: Holly Black
I’m sure this queen is going to be on EVERYONE’S list but I don’t even care. After The Cruel Prince and The Wicked King, ‘auto-buy’ is a category well deserved for Holly Black.
TWO: Erin Hahn
I know I’ve talked about this quite a bit, but I read You’d Be Mine by Erin Hahn and absolutely fell in love with it. This book was an adorable Johnny-and-June love story about two country singers on the road. PLUS the MC is from Michigan, and we get to travel back there for a while. I’m a sucker for anything in the mitten state, so Erin Hahn has me hooked for life.
THREE: Leigh Bardugo
Again, another one I’m sure made EVERYONE’S list. But after Six of Crows, how could she not?
FOUR: Taylor Jenkins Reid
TJR made my auto-buy list by a land slide after reading The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. I haven’t read anything else by her yet, but I do already have several books on my shelf, and I can’t wait to get to them.
FIVE: Laini Taylor
Three words: Strange the Dreamer. The end.
SIX: K. Ancrum
If you haven’t read The Wicker King or The Weight of The Stars yet, do it immediately, and then put K. Ancrum on your auto-buy list for life. Honestly, if this author wrote her name on the back of a napkin, I’d buy it. And she’d probably find some way to make me to cry my heart out over it, too.
SEVEN: Shea Ernshaw
I read The Wicked Deep last October and honestly it was everything I ever wanted. It was beautifully written and unique and I can’t wait to see where Ernshaw goes from here.
EIGHT: Tessa Gratton
Are you guys sick of me talking about Strange Grace yet? TOO BAD. My top publication of 2019, so obviously now anything Tessa Gratton puts on paper, I’m going to buy.
NINE: Helen Hoang
Romance QUEEN. Plus so much rep. I loved her first two books, and I know she’s doing more based on other characters. BE STILL MY HEART.
TEN: Anna-Marie McLemore
After Blanca y Roja, I honestly would buy this lady’s kindergarten fridge artwork. I’m not joking. It was that good.
I made an honorable mentions list because 1. I couldn’t decide and 2. I know a lot of these are FOR SURE going to be on people’s list so I just figured they were assumed…
- Sarah J Maas
- JK Rowling
- Cassandra Claire
- Tessa Bailey
- Casey McQuiston
What about you guys? What authors make you spend all the money, no matter the cost?
