Top Ten Tuesday- Auto-Buy Authors

Top Ten Tuesday is a really cool original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten List that bloggers join in on answering... and today (February 26) I'm one of them :)



Today's Topic:


Top Ten Authors That I'd Put On My Auto-Buy List- No Questions Asked



1.  Courtney Summers- DA!  She's my #1... I even read her book when she went zombie & loved it!!




2.  Sarah Ockler- LOVE all her books... totally dependable go-to contemporary author!




3.  E. Lockhart- Hello! The Boyfriend List?? Yes everything she writes is genius.




 4.  John Green- I think he's going to be on everybody's lists.




5.  Sarah Dessen- I've loved Sarah Dessen's books from way back. Her books are what made me continue to read YA after I had passed up the "age limit".




6.  Sara Shepard- I'm kind of embarrassed to put this on here, but it's true. I must read all of Sara Shepard's books, they are addicting!




7.  Jennifer Brown- Love her books!!  She writes about "issues" but not in a generic blah way, the way I've seen issue books done.




8.  J.K Rowling- No explanation needed


9.  Jay Asher- His books have been always had some creative element to them and I can't wait to see what he comes up with next.




10.  Katie McGarry- LOVE HER!  One of my new favs!




Honorable Mentions: Sarah Mlynowski, Jodi Picoult, Jennifer Weiner, Stephanie Perkins




What authors are you guys obsessed with??  Do we have any of the same?

  1. Before this week's list I've not heard of Jennifer Brown before but I'm seeing a lot of love. I'm going to have to track down a copy and start reading!

    I have Dare You To by Katie McGarry on pre-order. I can't wait! Great list :)

  2. I love that you listed a guilty pleasure on here (I've got one too!) I haven't read the PLL books, but I desperately want to. I watched the first seasons of the televisions show, so I am hooked, and I want to see if the books are even better (that's usually the case).

  4. Great list! Green is one author I enjoy, but his books aren't an immediate auto buy for me. I still haven't read Rowling.

  10. Great picks. Still got Thirteen Reasons Why on my to read shelf so it is promising to see that author on an auto buy list.

  11. Love Sarah Dessen! I haven't read anything by Sarah Ockler yet but I really, really want to. I also can't wait to read Katie McGarry's Dare You To.

  12. great list, have to say only one on my auto-buy is J.K. Rowling and Sarah Dessen. Only authors I haven't read books by are Jay Asher and Jennifer Brown. I would definitely add Tahereh Mafi, Veronica Roth, Stephenie Meyer, Jennifer Echols, and Sophie Kinsella!

  15. You're pretty heavy on the contemporary books, which isn't my thing, but I love your enthusiasm! Also, yes, John Green is on a TON of lists, but I think he's earned it. :)
