Hey guys! It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, which is currently being run by the lovely Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl. We knew instantly that we wanted to take part in this weekly meme because both of us love making list, so this is perfect!
This week’s (July 16th, 2019) topic is: Auto-buy authors.
Sarah Glenn Marsh
I adore Sarah as much as an author as I do a person and that is one hell of a whole lot. I can’t see me ever not pre-ordering one of her amazing books. If you haven’t read Reign of the Fallen, go do it!
I’m always going on and on about Tricia. I just love her style of writing – it’s not really complicated or heavy when it comes to world building but it’s not what she promises. Her books always deliver what they set out to and her characters are always badass and her banter on point!
Derek’s debut Scream all Night blew me away. It was such a heartfelt, odd and eccentric contemporary that I just didn’t see coming and I loved every minute of it. I was lucky enough to get my hands on a physical copy of his latest work – Swipe Right for Murder and yet again five stars all day long. Fast, smart and fun thriller. At this point, I completely trust Derek!
I love horror and unfortunately, YA is really lacking in that department – thankfully we still have authors like Dawn Kurtagich to save the day! I fell in love with her twisty, mind f*cks – Dead House, as well as And the Trees Crept In and I can’t wait to devour Teeth in the Mist soon.
Ok, so this was like the hardest thing to do. I have a lot of auto-buy authors and I didn’t want to just showcase the obvious like VE Schwab and Leigh Bardugo. I wanted to add some new ones I’ve discovered and have placed on the list even after only one book.
I had to put Jay on this list. He is my favourite author hands down. I would buy a phone book if he wrote one. I just love his humour, the sass of this man is usually off the charts. His characters are usually so much fun too. Plus we share a birthday, so… it was meant to be, lol.
I love Laini. Her writing is one of the most beautiful I have read. If you read Strange the Dreamer you know what I’m talking about. It’s fairytale-like and makes you dream of far away places.
Christine Lynn Herman
I just finished The Devouring Gray and truly loved it. The writing and story reminded me so much of Maggie Stiefvater (which is one of my faves) but it still stood out as it’s own. I felt it was a strong debut and made me want to read more of her books (well when they come out).
Emily A Duncan
Emily wrote one of my favourite characters so far this year: Malachiasz. Wicked Saints was such a strong debut.
I adored Hannah’s take on Henry VIII in Four Dead Queens and her upcoming book Foul is Fair looks absolutely fabulous! She has captured my heart with her first book and made my auto-buy list.
