Top Ten Auto-Buy Authors

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and you can find all the information and upcoming prompts over on her blog. It’s such a fun idea and I love reading everyone’s posts and adding to my book wishlist.

This week’s prompt is auto-buy authors. My choices are all authors I preorder books from no matter how little I know about the plot etc. I trust these authors to write a book I’ll love.

KATHERINE ARDEN – The Winternight trilogy is one of my all-time favourite series and I was honestly spooked by Small Spaces.

KARIN SLAUGHTER – My favourite crime and thriller writer and one I’ve read every book from. There’s not a book of hers I’ve not enjoyed.

MADELINE MILLER – I’m a huge Greek mythology nerd so both The Song of Achilles and Circe are favourites of mine. The research is incredible and the writing beautiful.

SARAH J MAAS – I know some of her series have problems but they’re always entertaining and I find myself completely invested in the characters.

MAGGIE STIEFVATER – The Scorpio Races is one book I reread every year and is just perfect. I also love the lyrical prose and character-driven action of The Raven Cycle.

LAINI TAYLOR – As soon as I read Strange the Dreamer, I fell in love with Laini’s writing style. I read DOSAB straight after and she became an auto-buy author for me.

LEIGH BARDUGO – Last year I read all of Leigh’s books and discovered another favourite author. I trust I’ll enjoy any book of hers I buy.

KATE MORTON – Kate Morton’s novels are always incredibly evocative with beautiful prose. The stories stay with me long after I’ve finished.

PIERCE BROWN – After finishing the Red Rising trilogy, Pierce Brown became my new obsession. I’ll definitely preorder any book he releases.

JANE HARPER – I love a well-written mystery and they don’t get more atmospheric than Jane Harper’s crime novels which are set in Australia. 

Do you have any auto-buy authors?
