Top Ten Tuesday | Auto-Buy Authors

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.


1. Jennifer Crusie: I have loved this lady's books since I was a thirteen. I fell in love with the first book I ever read of hers, Welcome to Temptation, and didn't couldn't stop there. I have read (and own) all her books, and will buy anything she writes (always.)
2. Stephanie Meyers: Yes, really. Her books are awesome. I said it. Why else would so many people love them? Amiright?? I read the Twilight series years ago and loved it. I read The Host a little more recently and loved it even more. So yes, I would buy her books on the spot.
3. Lauren Oliver: Gosh, I can't express how much I love her writing. Her books make me feel all kinds of gniutrhawknjcgazahaho! I think she's simply amazing and I adore her books. I also got my first (and only, so far) literary tattoo of a quote from one her books. Yes, I love her that much.
4. Ellen Hopkins: Can this woman write some powerful shit or what? Every book of hers has pretty much ripped my heart out. She has taken on so many tough subjects on and written great books about them. She's the best.
5. Stephanie Perkins: Gah, can her books get any cuter? I loved, loved Anna. I own Lola. And I cannot wait for Isla. And I love her hair colors.

6. Gayle Forman: If I Stay is one of those books I think about sometimes, and I still tear up. I cannot wait to read her latest book, but I will soon! Love her writing. She's just awesome.
7. J.K. Rowling: She gave us Harry Potter. Need I say more? I didn't think so.
8. Suzanne Collins: The Hunger Games will probably be one of my favorite books ever. I've read it about a million times (two to be exact) and can't imagine what my life would be like without her books.
9. Tiffanie DeBartolo: She is so freaking awesome. I love both her books to pieces. She was the first author to ever contact me directly and offer me a copy of her book. Not an ARC, or a book for "review" but her book because I mentioned I wanted to read it. She signed it and everything. I love her.
10. Julia Quinn: I love historical romance because of her and I love her, and her books and she is just....gah. Awesome.

Honorable Mentions:  J.L. Bryan | Gretchen McNeil | Rachel Ward | Jane Austen | Jeannette Walls | Barry Lyga

  1. I haven't read a lot of these authors, but I do love Suzanne Collins and, of course, J.K. Rowling. As long as it's a MG of YA from her, I'll buy it!

  3. Seeing Lauren Oliver on so many lists. And I'm so happy because I love that woman and her writing. But sadly I didn't have room for her on my top ten, and even more sadder is that I forgot to do honourable mentions in which she would've been on it and possibly alongside Suzanne Collins and JK Rowling (obviously!). Hah!

    Though when I do see Jo Rowling on people's lists I wonder if they automatically bought The Casual Vacancy (like I did) since this top ten is meant to transcend any genre that the authors write.

    Check out my TTT.

  6. I love Lauren Oliver, she's a great writer, and she's a really fun person too! Actually, now that you mention it, I didn't buy The Casual Vacancy! I know I will one day, but I have to feel like reading something like it to pick it up.

  9. That's kind of how I feel about her since I haven't bought or read The Casual Vacancy. I know I will one day, but probably when I am up for that kind of read.

  13. Great list, Cindy! <3 Ohh, I would definitely buy anything by J.K. Rowling without any hesitation... though I still have to get THE CASUAL VACANCY. I loved THE HOST, too, though I haven't read Stephenie's Twilight Saga yet. I admit, I've got no intention to. :P


    Anyway, I still need to check out some of these authors' works, but I know most of them have been well loved by readers, so I'm mega-excited! Great Top Ten!
