This week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is Top Ten Authors On Your Auto-Buy list. I don’t actually tend to buy a book before I read it, so I was grasping at straws a little bit to get to ten, but hey…I made it! These are the authors that I will pre-order a book from without a second thought.
I love her creeptastic fairies and sarcastic vampires, so I’ll pretty much pre-order any YA Holly Black book that comes along. Y’know. For science.
(That didn’t make any sense. Ignore me).
He’s only written two (coming up on three) YA books, but he has impressed me enough with those two that he’s been added to the list (I think I may have pre-ordered Library of Souls twice. Oops).
This guy is what shaped my pre-teenager hood fantasies of demigods. Somehow, when I imagined being a demigod, I never actually imagined having to fight monsters. I just imagined all the cool powers and friends I would have.
A. G. Howard
I dare you to find someone who has read her Splintered series and hasn’t completely fallen in love with it. I. Dare. You. Those three books mean that I will forever pre-order whatever A. G. Howard has to offer, because amazing.
The four books I’ve read so far from here are all amazing, and I loved them all, and I actually still need to pre-order Winter so I might do that this afternoon. I am also extremely excited for both Heartless and what her Goodreads calls “a trilogy about super heroes and super villains“.
Because Maggie Stiefvater. That’s why.
I fell in love with Fangirl. I fell slightly less in love with Eleanor & Park. I gobbled down Attachments. And am eagerly awaiting Carry On. Why? Because it is the most epic thing ever from an amazing author.
Even though I haven’t read all of her books (yet), I quite enjoyed both Panic and Vanishing Girls, so I think that if she announces another book I will pre-order it quite forcefully.
I love all three of her series, and CANNOT WAIT for The Iron Warrior, because the cliffhanger at the end of the Iron Traitor made me cry in frustration BECAUSE THAT IS NOT A NICE THING TO DO TO PEOPLE. I’m also looking forward to the third book in the Talon series, Soldier.
I fell in love with the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series, and I heard that she has another series so I might need to go and see if I can find that so I can gobble it down. But if she ever starts a new series I will be pre-ordering it.
So, there you go! My list. Do any of you have any of the same people? Have you noticed that a vast majority of YA authors seem to be women? Are your favorite authors releasing any books soon? If so, what are they?
