Top Ten Tuesday – February 26, 2013: Top Ten Authors on My Auto-Buy List


It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful blog at The Broke and the Bookish!

(Young Adult)



No doubt about it that Gayle Forman is my number one answer to the question “Which authors are on my auto-buy list?” I have adored all of her works and after each book, I’m left dying for the next or to go back and re-read every book that’s come before it!


Lauren Oliver is another author that I would follow to the ends of the Earth. I’m a little scared to be reading Requiem right now, but so far I’m enjoying it! I’m just praying the series wraps up well because I just always get scared when series end!! Anyway, Lauren Oliver’s writing is gorgeous and reading her books is always amazing!

I fell in love with Sweet Evil over the summer and now I’m anxiously awaiting Sweet Peril! Before I knew what fangirling really was, I was fangirling for Sweet Evil! You can bet when SP comes out, I’m buying it immediately!


I just finished the last book in The Chemical Garden trilogy, Sever. I really enjoyed how Lauren DeStefano wrapped the series up (although I heard a lot of mixed reactions from people) and I look forward to purchasing anything else she writes!


Anna and the French Kiss became an instant favorite when I read it. Although I wasn’t as big of a fan for Lola, I’m definitely buying any new books from Stephanie Perkins the nanosecond they come out!!


I never expected to like a fantasy book so much so when I read Shadow and Bone, I was blown away. I loved Leigh Bardugo’s writing and you can bet I’m barely able to contain my excitement for Siege & Storm!! I’ve also been able to meet Leigh Bardugo a few times and knowing that she’s such a genuinely nice person and how much fun she is makes it that much more exciting to pick up her books!


I’ve only read The Sea of Tranquility but the sheer beauty of the book and the amazing characters that Katja Millay created has made me a believer! You can bet I’m getting this book when it comes out in print so it can have a home on my shelf and I’ll be buying any future books from this amazing author!


What a fun debut from Lauren Morrill!! I had just a blast with her characters and a really great story line. I’d be happy to buy any new books from her!


Okay, admittedly, I haven’t actually purchased any of Richelle Mead’s books. SAD. I know. I borrowed all of the Vampire Academy series from the library since I was zipping through them and I then I quickly caught up with Bloodlines in anticipation of The Indigo Spell. Richelle Mead technically hasn’t been an auto-buy author but she’s definitely an auto-read author for me!!


Same with Robin LaFevers – I borrowed Grave Mercy from the library, but absolutely plan on buying it because I loved it so much! I have Dark Triumph on my Kindle right now, but I’ll be buying that too when it comes out!!


So those are my auto-buy authors! Anyone we have in common? Looking forward to see other people’s picks this week!!



Shout Outs for my Fav Adult Auto-Buy Authors:

  1. Hannah @ So Obsessed With

    Yay Stephanie Perkins, Richelle Mead, Robin LaFevers, and Gayle Forman! I only had Perkins on my official list, but I totally could have included the other authors. All are fabulous! Just One Day really sealed my Perkins love, and I just got approved to read Mead’s Gameboard of the Gods on NetGalley and am legit so excited about it! I’ve preordered Dark Triumph and cannot wait for it to come in! So much bookish goodness!

  2. Melody

    What a great list! Love seeing Lauren Oliver on the list! I had every intention to read Grave Mercy last year but finally getting to it before Dark Triumph. Hoping I can add Robin LaFevers to my auto-buy list after!

  3. Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook

    If you like Meg Cabot’s adult books, you should give her YA books a try. I LOVE so many of her books. You have to read The Princess Diaries, Avalon High, Teen Idol, How to Be Popular . . . okay obviously I have a problem only listing one of Cabot’s books. She’s just that amazing 🙂

    I do really like Cabot’s Boy series which is adult. Have you read those? They are chick lit, I think.

    1. Tee @ YA Crush

      I second Quinn!!!!! I love Meg Cabot’s books, all of them, but especially the YA ones. Actually, her middle-school series, Allie Finkle, is super-funny too (read them with my daughter, of course, but I was dying laughing the whole time). She’s awesome!

  4. debbi michiko florence

    Great list! i’m trying to think of mine and off the cuff I’d have to say (for YA):
    Sarah Dessen
    Stephanie Perkins
    Sara Zarr
    Jo Knowles
    Ally Carter
    Robin Benway
    Gayle Foreman
    Cinda Williams Chima
    Morgan Matson
    Maureen Johnson

    There are probably others but these were the first 10 that came to mind. 🙂
    Thanks! That was fun!

    Your banners are so pretty! I would definitely agree with Lauren Oliver and perhaps Katja Millay. The Sea of Tranquility blew me away and was so much better than I expected.

  6. Michael

    Awesome list of authors. I have some of there books waiting to be read on my shelf. I really need to catch up. I hope Lauren DeStefano, Robin LaFevers, Leigh Bardugo, and Richelle Mead are as great as I think they are. =]
