Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where a new topic is given each week by the host blog and participants write up a corresponding list of ten things. Simple, fun, and great for those obsessed with lists. This week's topic is: Top Ten Authors That I'd Put On My Auto-Buy List (basically an auto-buy list is no questions asked..you love this author so much that no matter what they wrote next you'd buy regardless of genre or subject matter)!
(1) Sarah Dessen - Hands down favorite author EVER. 'Nough said.
(2) Stephanie Perkins - SO ADORABLE. I just love her writing style.
(3) Katie McGarry - PtL was AMAZING. I cannot wait to read more by her.
(4) Maria V. Snyder - LOVED THE STUDY SERIES. And now everything she has written is on my wishlist. MUST READ IT ALL.
(5) Tamora Pierce - The woman who got me into fantasy. Of course everything she writes is a must buy.
(6) David Levithan - GENIUS. This man is a GENIUS. If I don't own it than I can guarantee its on my wishlist.
(7) Shannon Hale - I love this woman's writing style. I've read...six books by her now, the only ones I haven't yet gone near are her Austen books and the six I've already read have convinced me that she can pretty much do no wrong.
(8) Ellen Hopkins - Two books. I have read TWO books by her and already everything else she has written is on my wishlist. I WILL BUY THEM ALL. And every time I hear something new is coming out from her? Automatic add.
(9) Julie Kagawa - Her name on a book cover is enough for me. I mean, I love the fey so reading her Iron Fey books for me is a no brainer. But I was pretty much over vampires but seeing her name on The Immortal Rules was enough to change my mind. HAD TO GET IT. Her name is magic.
(10) Deb Caletti - Again with the automatic add. As soon as I see a new title pop up I add it to my wishlist. I haven't LOVED everything she has written but so much of it has been just right...she's definitely a go to contemporary author for me.
Looking back over this list...I'm kind of amazed by how many of these authors are mainly contemporary writers. I mean there are what, six contemporary authors to four fantasy? OHEMGEE ALLI FINALLY CONVERTED ME. xD
