Top Ten Tuesday: Authors on Auto-buy

This week's Top Ten Tuesday focuses on authors who are on our auto-buy list.  Check out my choices:



1.  Jenny Han- I fell in love with Han's writing when I read the Summer series and although I didn't LOVE Burn for Burn, I will always be a fan.

2.  Sarah Dessen - I've read all but two of her books and I hope to remedy that this summer. Dessen is one of my favorite authors and has been for years. Her books are the epitome of what I like in a summer read.



3.  Gayle Forman- Her books always make me feel so much. I will read anything she writes.

4.  Philippa Gregory- She's the reason I love historical fiction.


   
5.  Cynthia Hand- The Unearthly series is one of my favorite paranormal series and I can't wait to read Boundless.

6.  Morgan Matson- After reading Second Chance Summer, Matson secured a spot on my favorite author list.



7.  Stephanie Perkins- Anna and the French Kiss. Need I say more?

8.  Michelle Hodkin- Only Michelle Hodkin's stellar writing can get me to read scary books.




9.  Richelle Mead- She created Dimitri, one of my favorite male characters ever. I need to get caught up with her Bloodlines series.  I guess I am still mourning the loss of Vampire Academy.

10. John Green- Ok, so I have only read two of his books, but after reading The Fault in Our Stars, I'll buy anything he writes. Seriously. He's that good. I plan on reading the rest of his novels as well.


So, there you have it! What about you? Which authors are on your auto-buy list? Let me know. Also, Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, so check it out! (Also, all pictures are from Goodreads.com)

  1. Stephanie Perkins is on my list too, I'm almost finished with Lola and I just love her writing, and her characters. Totally forgot about Morgan Matson - I loved Amy & Roger but I still need to read Second Chance Summer!

  4. I really need to read some more Sarah Dessen! I think I am missing out on quite a lot of awesome. Gayle Forman almost made my list and John Green probably should have since The Fault in Our Stars is one of my all-time favorites. Great list! :)

    1. Sarah Dessen is FAB! You must get around to reading her son. I love TFIOS as well- it's brilliant! I can't wait to read more of Green's work.

  5. CHRISTINA!!! I haven't read anything by the first 3 authors! That is absurd and I can't believe it. I feel like I shouldn't be allowed to call myself a book blogger! I of course adore Michelle Hodkin and Stephanie Perkins as well, both are such fabulous storytellers and I will forever and always buy anything they write:)

    1. OMG! You haven't read any Dessen, Han or Forman? You need to read Dessen or Han this summer- perfect for a vacation and I think you would really like Gayle Forman. Thanks for visiting, Jenny!

  6. Yes to Dessen!! She's one of my absolute favorite writers. Mead's a great pick too - her books always rock.

    Fabulous top ten!

  7. Even though I haven't read most of these authors, I keep seeing them on people's TTT lists. I guess that means I have some catching up to do, huh?

    As for John Green, I'm with you -- I've only read THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, but I loved it so much that I'm anxiously looking forward to enjoying the rest of his books.

    Glad to have found you via TTT!
