Welcome to another week of Top Ten Tuesday hosted by the lovely The Broke and the Bookish! TTT is a bookish meme in which bloggers are given a topic every week and make a top ten list on their blogs!
This weeks topic is Auto-buy Authors. This is a little rough for me; I don’t have very many authors that I automatically buy their books just because I enjoyed other books written by them. The only time I really but authors on auto-buy is when they are writing a series I’m reading at the time, but there are times that a particular author writes books that are just my style.
Don’t forget to add your auto-buy author in the comments, or leave a link to your TTT!
1. Maria V. Snyder
I haven’t read one of her books that I haven’t at least liked. If you’ve been on my blog for even a little while, or have read my past TTT, then you know how much I love her “Study” series. I even liked her Inside/Out YA series.
2. William Shakespeare
Okay, shush. I know the guy isn’t coming out with any more books. BUT, there’s so many different version of his plays!! I don’t know how many copies I have of Much Ado about Nothing. There’re hardbacks, leather-bound, paperbacks, annotated, ebooks, special editions and more!
3. Gail Carson Levine
This is a sort-of always auto-buy? She wrote Ella Enchanted, Fairest, Ever, and The Two Princesses of Bamarre (she’s working on a sequel of that one). I loved every one of those stories, but she also writes kiddy books that I don’t read. So, I guess I’m a YA auto-buy of hers.
4. Sarah Dessen
There’s not really anything remarkable about Sarah Dessen’s books. They’re just good, quick reads; perfect for lazy days when you just want to sit and be quiet for a while.
5. Garth Nix
It’s funny how sometimes you just don’t let go of authors. I started reading books by Garth Nix when I was in Jr. High and haven’t stopped since. My favorite series is still The Seventh Tower.
6. William Ritter
So, he only has 2 (and a half?) books out so far. Jackaby has by far become one of my faves and Mr. Ritter’s books made my Amazon pre-order list before the first book even hit the shelves! They didn’t disappoint, either!
