Top Ten Tuesday – Top Ten Of Your Auto-buy Authors

August 18, 2015



Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme by The Broke and the Bookish.This feature gives a weekly Top Ten list. We all love lists, right?

This week’s theme is Top Ten Of Your Auto-buy Authors

This is HARD! I can easily think of ten, but narrowing down to 10 is where it gets tricky. I originally thought to only include authors where I have read 3 books, because if I’ve read 3 books I love by them, they are pretty solidly on this list. Problem is, there are so many authors where I’ve only read 2 books, but still want to include and many of these authors are firmer on my “must read list” than authors I’ve read more books by. So, I went down my list, included my entries where I read 3 or more books (because honestly, the more I read, sometimes the harder it is to remain on that list). Then I had authors with just two book, and there were probably maybe 6 I wanted to include. From that set of 2 books read, I ruled out any authors that have more books published, and I just haven’t read them yet (no matter how much I’ve enjoyed them … so there goes GGK and a couple of others.) Out of those left, I couldn’t pick just two. I just couldn’t. I did pick one, and left my 10th position open for all the rest. 🙂

So, here’s my picks, in order of how many books I’ve read by them:
  • Robin Hobb
  • Joe Hill
  • Joe Abercrombie
  • George R. R. Martin
  • Wesley Chu
  • Scott Lynch
  • Lauren Beukes
  • Patrick Rothfuss
  • Sarah Lotz
  • (everyone else I want to read more of!)
