Top Ten Tuesday: Top ten authors on my auto-read list

Top 10 Tuesday new

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is Top Ten Authors On My Auto-Buy List. Since I’m trying to curtail the buying — but not the reading — I’ve played with the theme just a teeny bit.

We actually did this TTT topic back in February 2013, and if you’re interested, you can check out my list here. When I look back at my 2013 auto-buy list, I have to say that I’d still include 100% of the authors I included back then! In an effort not to repeat myself, my list today is going to be an ADDITIONAL ten authors whose works I want to read, pretty much no matter what.

Without further ado — here are the ten authors whose inspire a “gimme, gimme” feeling in me:

Gimme all the books. Now.

  1. Patricia Briggs: Looking back at my 2013 list, I’m shocked that Patricia Briggs wasn’t on it yet. Perhaps I was still in the early stages of falling in love with her amazing urban fantasy worlds?
  2. Chris Bohjalian: I haven’t been let down yet, and I’m constantly impressed all over again by his ability to write in seemingly every genre. I still have several of his older books to catch up on, and I’m looking forward to it!
  3. Jojo Moyes: In the last couple of years, I’ve read 6 books by Jojo Moyes, and I’m planning to read many more.
  4. Deanna Raybourn: While I haven’t read the Lady Julia Grey series for which she’s so well-know, I have read and enjoyed two historical novels by this author, and plan to start her new Victorian mystery series in the next month or so.
  5. Lisa Genova: I thought Left Neglected was fascinating, and Inside the O’Briens was incredibly powerful. I still need to read Still Alice, and I’m sure wherever this author goes next will be equally interesting.
  6. Miranda Kenneally: Gotta admit, I’ve really loved each of the three YA novels I’ve read so far by Miranda Kenneally. I still have to read her earliest three, but this is an author I intend to keep following.
  7. Rainbow Rowell: I’ve loved all four of her books so far. More please!
  8. Nicole Peeler: Her Jane True series totally rocked! I really liked the first book in her Jinn & Juice series too, and hope there are more on the way.
  9. Joe Hill: He regularly scares the bejeezus out of me, but I love him anyway. I’ll read anything he writes.
  10. Bill Willingham: After the masterpiece that is Fables, I’m willing to bet that whatever comes next will be smashing.
