Top 10 Tuesday #19 (August 18/20): Top Ten Auto-Buy Authors

Hello my fellow bookworms! It’s Tuesday, not Tuesday (they both start with the same letter, I’m sure that counts for something, am I right?!) but I’ve decided to do this week’s Top 10 Tuesday topic anyway. This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is, as you have probably guessed, Top Ten Auto-Buy Authors, AKA authors whose books you will buy no matter what, or even before knowing what it’s about. Not sure if I’ll be able to fully complete this list, but here goes! In no particular order:

Author Jennifer Armentrout

1. Jennifer L. Armentrout

I have yet to read most of her NA books, but I have read a lot of her YA novels, and I know that I’d definitely pick up anything she writes! From paranormal romance and fantasy to suspenseful romance and thrillers, her books are great! Always look forward to things she writes.

2. Cassandra Clare

Author Cassandra Clare

I absolutely love her Shadowhunter books (AKA The Mortal Instruments, The Internal Devices, etc) and although I have yet to read her middle grade fantasy The Iron Trial, (co-written with Holly Black) I definitely will buy anything this author releases.

Marissa Meyer3. Marissa Meyer

The Lunar Chronicles are amazing. Like, really, I just love the books. They are full of creativity, action, romance, and they’re retellings of awesome fairytales, so how could I not? I honestly need more from this author!!

4. Sarah J. MaasSarah J. Maas

I’ve read her Throne of Glass series & A Court of Thorns and Roses (the first book in a new series of the same name) and you can bet that I will be reading more from her, no questions asked! I loved all the books I’ve read from her so far, her writing and worldbuilding is amazing, and I always fall in love with the characters! ❤

Rick Riordan pic5. Rick Riordan

This author is simply awesome! I love all the books I’ve read by him, especially the Heroes of Olympus and the Percy Jackson series. His books, generally focusing on different kinds of mythology are always guaranteed to be an amazing adventure.

6. Tahereh MafiTahereh Mafi

After reading this author’s Shatter Me series, I am definitely going to be auto-buying any of her future novels! Her writing is so unique, and I love how much development her characters went through in Shatter Me. I’d love to gobble up this author’s novels, no questions asked!

C.C Hunter pic7. C.C. Hunter

Maybe it’s just me, but I find that there’s hardly any bloggers who’ve read this author’s works, which truly is a shame. I really enjoyed both her Shadow Falls and the first two books of the Shadow Falls: After Dark series and will go as far as to put her on my auto-buy list. She is an author not to be missed!

8. Patrick NessPatrick Ness

I haven’t read all of this author’s novels (only his Chaos Walking trilogy) but I do plan on reading more because he is a fantastic author! His books are gripping and I absolutely love his writing style. I hope to get to his novels A Monster Calls and More Than This asap!

Author Rainbow Rowell

9. Rainbow Rowell

I’ve only read 2 books by this author (although I am determined to change that by reading her other novels) and I loved them both; Eleanor and Park & Fangirl. Both were such amazing and touching reads, not to mention I loved the writing and characters.

10. Sarah DessenSarah Dessen

Sarah Dessen is amazing when it comes to contemporary! I haven’t read all her books but the ones I have I really enjoyed. They just always manage to put a smile on my face!


Wow, I honestly had no idea I’d actually be able to complete this list! But I did and I also have a few honorable mentions: Richelle Mead, Leigh Bardugo, Julie Kagawa, Susan Ee, Marie LuJ.K. Rowling. Along with those authors I’d also like to name a few authors I’ve recently discovered whose books may potentially be on my auto-buy list: Renee Ahdieh, Becky Albertalli, Francesca Zappia… and a few others I cannot remember at this moment. 🙂

So that’s it for my (belated) Top Ten Tuesday!! Let me know in the comments below if we share any authors in common, I’d love to hear from you! ❤

Top 10 Tuesday #3 (April 21): Top Ten ALL TIME Favorite Authors

The time has come for another Top 10 Tuesday! This week’s theme is All-time favourite authors! This REALLY kills me and I just can’t decide so I’m going to narrow it down to authors in the Paranormal/Fantasy genre or Dystopia, mostly YA. (Press the images for a better, larger view of the pictures.)

As usual, in no particular order:

1. J.K. Rowling

Two words: Harry. Potter. ❤ There really isn’t much more to say other than that. Harry Potter was a thrilling ride that I loved, forever captivating me in the wizarding world.

2. Jennifer L. Armentrout

I love Jennifer Armebtrout’s writing! There’s always an awesome plot, with steamy romance and humorous charters which just makes me want to read her stuff more and more. These are only some of her works:

3. Cassandra Clare

She’s another author who’s writing I love. Her character are always alive and useful, and the world she’s created is amazing. Shadowhunters rule! I loved The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices, can’t wait ’till The Dark Artifices trilogy comes out! ❤

4. Marie Lu

I’ve read only Marie Lu’s Legend trilogy (although I’m planning on reading Her book The Young Elites as well) but her books have captivated me enough to put her on this list. If you haven’t already, you should definitely read Legend!

5. Meg Cabot

You probably heard of this author through The Princess Diaries, but she has several other works that ultimately made Meg Cabot one of my favorite authors. I enjoyed The Princess Diaires series, however I prefer The Mediator series. I also really enjoyed her Airhead trilogy. Her Heather Wells series was quite enjoyable, as well as her stand-alone novels Pants on Fire and Teen Idol. I have yet to start her Queen of Babble trilogy. I’m looking forward to getting to it! 🙂

6. Suzanne Collins

How could I not put the author of The Hunger Games on this list? The Hunger Games was awesome and one of the few movie adaptations other than HP done well. 🙂

7. Rick Riordan

I loved Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson & the Olympians series, as well as The Heroes of Olympus series! I also enjoyed his Kane Chronicles trilogy as well! They were all fast-paced, adventurous, and best of all, involved mythology! I can’t wait for the first book in Riordan’s newest series, Magnus Chase and The Gods of Asgard, which is named The Sword of Summer. 🙂

8. Richelle Mead

I’ve read a lot of vampire-themed books, but Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy is the one most worth mentioning for this list. Richelle Mead’s writing is captivating, and I love her Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series (what I’ve read of Bloodlines series, anyway.) Looking forward to reading her other series! Check out my reviews on the first two books of the VA series HERE and HERE. Definitely one of my favorite authors!

9. Kiera Cass

I loved Kiera Cass’s Selection series! Made for a sweet, romance with touches of dystopia flavoring, and an awesome read. Her books were all very well-written. Looking forward to The Heir!

10. C.C Hunter

C.C Hunter is a wonderful author who I feel is quite unrecognized. I have read all the books released in her two series; Shadow Falls and Shadow Falls: After Dark, and I loved both of them! I definitely recommend her works, one of my favorite authors!

There are so many other authors I would love to put on the list, but alas, I must stop there. A few honorable mentions go to: Jane Austen (even though she isn’t a YA fantasy, paranormal or dystopia author), John Green, Veronica Roth, Marissa Meyer, Colleen Houck and Becca Fitzpatrick. They are very good writers and definitely should be recognized.

Anyway, that concludes this list! I don’t know how I would ever have stopped if I did a list on all-time favorite authors! 🙂 So what are your Top 10 All-time favorite authors? Or if you’re like me, All-time favorite authors of YA fantasy, paranormal, etc.? Comment your thoughts below! Or if you participate in this meme, post your link so I can come check it out!

Happy listing!
