Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten of Your Auto-buy Authors


Helllllllo readers, it’s another day, another Tuesday actually and another Top Ten List. The focus for this week’s list is to choose books that no matter what genre, what topic, what you feel about the cover/title/blurb you buy these books. These are the auto-authors, the go-to authors, the ones that our blogs are full of reviews of. The books we pre-order so we can be some of the first to open the pages and read the first lines (you get the gist); and these are my top ten,  (although in no particular order because it would be too darn tough.)

Dorothy Koomson

Since I read my best friends girl this author has been my go-to when I’m on Amazon trawling through the book shelves looking for new treasures. I think her writing is just perfecto and I cannot wait to get my hands on the next one. As always, ‘The Chocolate Run,’ is still one of my all-time favourite books. Bloody brilliant if you ask me.

J K Rowling

Doesn’t matter what she writes, what the critics say, what I thought of the last book I always go out and buy these books because I’m just a super-fan. Probably for life.

Ian Probert

One of my favourite authors that I have come into contact with through le blog; his writing is sublime all of the time. It’s ridiculous.

Karen Long

Another writer who I will forever keep an eye on. One of the best *new* authors I have had the chance to review.

Stella Newman

Gah one of my favourite authors, but due to my complicated TBR list and due to my downright crazy schedule I haven’t been able to read her newest yet. I will and I will love it.

Rainbow Rowell

I haven’t read too many of Rainbow Rowell’s books but they’re all sat there in my Amazon basket basically screaming to be bought. I’m having house situations at the moment (I only moved three months ago but I’ve been evicted*) so I have to save all my pennies for new rent and new deposits. Kill me now.

John Green

Another author I need to read more from just haven’t got around too but his books immediately go into my TBR list and will be bought when I finally settle somewhere and have less to worry about ie MOVING.

Markus Zusak

One of my most treasured authors. I’m currently buying all his books but not reading them because in probably seven+ years I’m still not over The Book Thief. I will be one day I’m sure.

Caitlin Moran

Read the first, immediately bought the second. This lady can write.

Jo Jo Moyes

A more recent author for me although I know she is so well-loved by the book-blogosphere. I think her writing is wonderfully done, her tweets are on-pointe, and when her newly written book comes out I will have my tiny mitts on them.

So there you go, ten wonderful authors I adore. What would you add?

*Not quite evicted but it might as well be. My landlady has decided to rent my gorgeous house to one person rather than three of us at a time so we’ve all got to get out by August. I’ve now moved as of the 15th of August to a house that currently has eight residents with little me being the ninth. Help me.

    Great list. Sorry to hear about your housing situation. I hope your new house will work out.

      Thank you!

      House is okay, it’s just going to take time and money 🙂 but I’ll get there!

    I don’t think I have that many automatically read – I don’t have enough time! Maybe just Siri Husvedt and Jenny Diski. But I do agree Jojo Moyes is always a good read.

      Ah I’ve read a little from Siri Husvedt, need to read more I think!

    Hope the house works out OK, and if it’s unbearable, that an alternative comes up.

    John Green is on my auto-read list, not necessarily my auto-buy one, but either way, he needs to be there. My TTT
    I’m so sorry about your house situation. I hope the new one works out or you’re able to figure something out better. <3

      Ian Rankin is a great choice! Love the way you’ve sectioned up your books 🙂

      Great post, and yes definitely! John Green is brilliant, 😀 xx

    I could have added Rainbow Rowell to my list, too. She’s fantastic. I have yet to read Jo Jo Moyes, though she’s been on my list for a long time. Great list!

      Glad you liked the list!! Rainbow Rowell is definitely one to add 🙂 well worth a dabble in her books 😀

      It’s frustrating because I’ve only been at the last house for three months so I’ve finally settled in and I’m off again *yawn*
      LOVE LOVE LOVE your list! I’ve just added so many books to my historical fiction list which is like the best genre! 🙂

      • August 19, 2015 / 2:56 pm

        It is!! So glad my list added to yours 🙂
