This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, which is hosted by The Bookish and the Broke, is on top auto-buy authors. So here are my top ten:
1. Anthony Doerr:
All the Light We Cannot See is my favourite book of all time. It’s got beautiful writing and the most precious story. I’d buy whatever Anthony Doerr releases next. Having said that, I haven’t read his previously released short story collections yet so I should pick them up soon…
2. Cassandra Clare:
I love all of Cassie Clare’s Shadowhunter books and even though she’s planning to write 9 more books in the same world, I’d still pick them all up in a heartbeat. I also got to meet her and Holly Black the other day, which was just amazing!
3. Marissa Meyer:
The Lunar Chronicles is probably my favourite series of all time. The characters are all so unique and funny. I cannot wait until the last book comes out in November. And of course, I would pick up anything she writes next.
4. Sarah J. Maas:
I was a bit hesitant about picking up the Throne of Glass series because of all the hype surrounding it. But when I finally read them last month, along with A Court of Thorns and Roses, I really connected with her writing and her characters. Now that she plans to release two books a year, I’m even more excited for her new releases.
5. Stephanie Perkins:
Her Anna, Lola and Isla books are some of the best YA fluffy contemporary novels that I’ve read. I also really love that she’s compiling a new anthology of summer short stories and I can’t wait to pick that up. I’m a bit unsure about her upcoming YA horror novel though…..
6. Becky Albertalli:
Even though she currently only has one release under her belt, I LOVED Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda. It has a proud place on my Goodreads Favourites shelf. Becky’s writing is so easy to read but gives me so many feels. She’s currently working on a loose companion novel to Simon vs, which I’m so excited for. Needless to say, I’ll be first in line to buy whatever she releases next. Plus Becky is super sweet in person!
7. Huntley Fitzpatrick:
I only read Huntley Fitzpatrick’s two novels just a couple of weeks ago but I’m so in love with the way she writes. I love the pace of her novels, and the amount of character development she manages to squeeze into her books. I preordered her third book (which actually comes out today!) and I’ll continue to pick up whatever she writes next.
8. Haruki Murakami:
I’m pretty much a collector of Murakami novels. Even though I’ve only read 3 of his works, I continue to pick up his books when they are released in English. I’m hoping to read all of the ones I own by the end of the year.
9. Sarra Manning:
I discovered Sarra Manning as a 13 year old. I was in love with her Diary of a Crush trilogy and reread them over and over again. (I recently did The Nostalgic Book Review Tag, created by Read Think Ponder, where I informally reviewed the first book of the trilogy). When Sarra started releasing adult books, I picked those up too. And I’ll continue to buy everything she releases.
10. Jenny Han:
So far, I’ve only read the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before duology, but I loved those books so much. They made me feel so happy and have such great family elements in them. I have the Summer I Turned Pretty trilogy on my shelf so hopefully I can get to those soon.
