Top Ten Tuesday (22)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.

This Tuesday's theme is...

Top Ten Authors That I'd Put On My Auto-Buy List

Yes! A Top Ten Tuesday that isn't very difficult! This makes me happy, especially because I have several authors that I do with this. (I'm just hoping I have ten!)

Rachel Caine: After falling in love with her Morganville Vampires series, I wanted more from Caine, so I started her Outcast Season series. Now, I have just about all her books (I need to complete the Weather Warden series) and will keep buying all her books, because she's one of my absolute favorites.
See: The Morganville Vampires series, Outcast Season series, Weather Warden series

Sarah Dessen: This doesn't really need an explanation, but if Sarah Dessen wrote it, I will buy it. (Of course, I own them all already.)
See: Along for the Ride, The Truth About Forever, This Lullaby

Stephanie Perkins: I love Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door, and I can't imagine not loving and not wanting anything else she writes.
See: Anna and the French Kiss, Lola and the Boy Next Door

Lisa Schroeder: I have all her YA books and will keep buying her YA books. They're written in verse, and they're all so wonderful. She's an author I'll always read.
See: Chasing Brooklyn, Falling For You, The Day Before

Kimberly Derting: I love her Body Finder series, and while I haven't read The Pledge books yet, I totally plan on doing so. Plus, she's a super cool local author.
See: The Body Finder, Dead Silence, The Last Echo, The Pledge, The Essence

Holly Cupula: This is another local author whose books I just devour. Plus, she always donates a portion of the proceeds to a cause that has to do with the book, which is wonderful.
See: Don't Breathe A Word, Tell Me A Secret

Stephenie Meyer: No explanation necessary. (Twihard forever!)
See: The Twilight Saga, The Host

Maggie Stiefvater: I already own two of her series and really liked The Wolves of Mercy Falls, plus her writing is really, really good. I'm sure I'll quite enjoy her other novels.
See: Scorpio Races, The Raven Boys, Wolves of Mercy Falls

Simone Elkeles: Gosh, I love her books. That is all.
See: Leaving Paradise, Return to Paradise, Perfect Chemistry, Rules of Attraction, Chain Reaction

Claudia Gray: To be honest, her books aren't my favorites. But I enjoy the stories, think she's awesome (do you follow her on Tumblr?), and already own pretty much all her books. So it only makes sense I buy the rest.
See: Evernight series, Fateful, Spellcaster

Which author's books do you always buy? Let me know!


  1. Ok, all of these sound awesome and I've read a book by almost all of the authors you mention. I just forgot about some of them! Thanks for the reminder!

    Here is my TTT: http://thewhiteunicornfiction.blogspot.com/2013/02/top-ten-tuesday-3-auto-buy-authors.html

  2. Rachel Caine is on my auto-buy list, too. I still need to try books of hers outside of the Morganville Vampires series, though! *shame on me*

  3. I haven't read any of the authors on your list, but Perkins is calling my name.

    Jessica @ Literary, etc

  4. Firstly I love your blog design especially the color scheme.

    I love the list of Authors :D I've also got Maggie Stiefvater on my Top Ten.

    Pls consider listing your blog at YA Blogosphere it's a directory listing for all YA-related blogs.

    Have a great week!

  5. Oh Stephanie Perkins...I love you. I need Isla now!

  6. Oh I love Claudia Gray! Also love Kimberly Derting :). We share a couple this week! Great list <3


  7. Y'know, I don't think I've heard about Ms. Meyer in a while. Is she working on anything?

    My TTT: http://shelversanon.blogspot.com/2013/02/top-10-tuesday-my-top-auto-buy-authors.html

  8. I agree about Meyer (come on, sequel to The Host!), but I couldn't get into Maggie Stiefvater -- her Shiver trilogy was just kinda "meh," and I haven't worked up the will to read anything else of hers.

    Here's my TTT for the week. Happy reading!

  9. I was a little surprised I didn't see Stephenie Meyer on more lists. I didn't particularly like Twilight, but I genuinely enjoyed The Host.
