Top Eleven Auto-buy Authors



There are some authors I trust beyond needing to "know" more about their latest literary tome. Unless they begin writing about the zombie apocalypse, chances are, I'm in for whatever they write - even under genre change circumstances. These are the authors whose novels I will preorder as well. Why? Because a.) their work is amazing (in all of its varying forms whether it be the perfect blend of rom-com bliss or serious thrills in the suspense category) and b.) if it's possible, I like to support favorite authors.

Today's topic is lots of fun because it gives readers a chance to give authors some shout-outs, but at the same time, I feel bad I didn't include everyone I'd have liked. Authors like Joanne BischofAlly Carter (finally reading one of hers... lovin' it), Julianna Deering, Katie GanshertRachel Hauck, Hillary Manton Lodge, (the newly discovered) Stephanie Perkins, and Jennifer E. Smith are all "auto-buy" names. More recently, I have come to appreciate Indie authors like Nicole Deese or Tammy Gray. Not because I didn't think they couldn't write, more because I didn't take the time to read their books. One novella later and I love their styles.

Broke and Bookish August 18th Topic
 
Top Ten Of Your Auto-buy Authors
(no matter the genre or what it's about...you'll buy it from these authors!)
If you want to get specific you can break it into genre especially since I know we did this topic in 2013
 
 
I've "known" Charity for years. Far longer than it seems. In that time, she's written and released several novels. One is a historical saga, the rest are a kind of blending of the steampunk or speculative worlds. To be honest, I haven't read them (*hangs head in shame*), but I do buy her new novels and am super excited to read them. Soon as I chop down my publisher/review TBR.
 

 
Love her soapy, wonderful and guilty pleasure Selection series. As excited as I am about the additional two books Cass gave fans, I'm eager to see what she writes apart from this world.
 

 
Looking for a sweet and fabulous rom-com? Look no further than Denise!
 
 
 
Pretty sure I've said all of the awesome things there is to say about Jenny and her writing.
 

 
If ya' like military fiction, there's no one better than Ronie Kendig.
 

 
Is it okay that I'm putting Emery on this list considering I've read only one of her books? I think so. Especially when said one novel is as good as The Start of Me and You. Reading her next book, When We Collided is high on my must. If only that didn't have to wait until March.
 

Dani's novels are fantastic if you like romantic-suspense. My favorite? Submerged, her debut.
 

With only three books to her name (the third releases in November), one might assume Katherine wouldn't have the same talent as those who have written a dozen novels. How wrong that assumption would be. While each of her novels is unique and has it's own "best" quality, her first novel is as beautiful and well-crafted as her third novel, The Bronte Plot.
 

 
I cannot remember how meeting Amber came about, but I'm glad I did! Not only is she a talented blogger and reviewer, she has three novels written and out in the world. Fans of Janette Oke or sweet historical fiction will enjoy the first two novels in her The Heart's Spring collection. She also has a contemporary new adult, How a Star Falls available plus an upcoming novella that is a kind of companion to HASF.
 

 
Melissa's novels are old-fashioned charm. I love how sweet they are, plus there's plenty of "classic movie" throwbacks woven into each story.
 

 
Every new release Becky pens and shares with the world just keeps getting better! Her novel, Meant to be Mine was absolutely beautiful if you like contemporary romance.
 
 
-------
 
Looking back on this list, I don't see any fantasy or paranormal. What authors would YOU all recommend in those genres? I have way too many unread books, so perhaps it'd be a name I am familiar with and who knows, maybe I even own some of the books and could binge read them.
 
Which authors do you pre-order or buy no matter what their names grace? Do you readily dive into a favorite authors books if it's a genre change? I'd love to chat about our favorite authors. Comment down below with any bookish thoughts.
 
...and leave those Top Ten Tuesday links if you like. I love to visit.
 
Happy Tuesday, friends. Thanks for reading. 
Keep reading.

    1. That they did! I buy their books regardless of how soon I can read them. :)

  2. Sadly for my wallet, this list could've been so much longer. The ten authors I chose were striking talents that I thought would appeal to a larger variety of readers. However, even now as I view my TTT List, there's actually very little deviation among what these authors write.

    You've got a great list here and I certainly could've added quite a few of yours to mine and still been good with it.

    1. Hi, Beth! Thanks so much for visiting and the comment.

      I understand that. I considered changing up some of my authors too, for a wider (or secular) appeal, but honestly, these are some of my top "must buys," and I don't mind over-sharing those names. ;) Off to visit your list.

  3. Thanks for introducing me to some new authors! Kendig and Wade sound like authors I should check out. I really considered including Emery Lord and I'm looking forward to When We Collided. Fab list :)

    1. Fun! It's always cool when we find newbie authors on other's blogs; especially during TTT. If you try either one of those author's books, I wish you happy reading... and hope you enjoy! Emery's novel was amazing, so I *had* to add her. ;) Thanks so much for visiting.

  4. I definitely recommend Maggie Stiefvater for fantasy/paranormal reads!! SHE IS INCREDIBLE and her characters are endlessly adorable and tortured. :') So fun. I neeeed to read more from Keira Cass!! I liked The Selection but just kind of wandered off to read other series and FORGOT TO FINISH IT. Gah!! Here's my TTT!

    1. Thanks so much for the recommendation, Cait! I've heard Maggie's name, so finding some of her books shouldn't be a hard task (I like her characters being adorable!).

      I've yet to finish the books that are out in Kiera's series as well. But I plan to ASAP. They're my happy place reads. :)

      Off to visit your TTT - thanks so much for visiting. :)

    1. I hear ya, Dawn. I likely forgot WAY too many authors, too. I know Joanne Bischof was a name I intended to add... and forgot. So, she was listed in my rambling paragraph instead. :)

  6. Interesting choices as I've only heard of Keira Cass myself so I have some research to do on the others so thanks for the heads up about them!

  8. Awesome list, Rissi! I actually bought an e-book by Charity Bishop, "Thornewicke." It looks like a splendid read, but, like you, haven't gotten around to it because of getting through other books in the ever growing TBR tower. I'd also like to read more by Jenny B. Jones and Melissa Tagg, plus try some books by some of the others you listed. :-D

    1. Thanks, Grace. It was lots of fun to put this one together - because, we got to talk about AUTHORS. ;) Charity's books promise to be an amazing adventure and of course, I know just what you mean about that TBR.

      Happy reading of Jenny B. Jones and Melissa Tagg. Two of my most favorite contemporary authors right there - and thanks so much for commenting, Grace. :)

    1. Thanks, Carrie... I know the feeling. It's such fun to visit everyone else's TTT and see who they picked to include. I missed way too many, but I also love those I did include. :) Off to visit your Tuesday post. :)

  10. I'm so with you on Kiera Cass! I'm excited to see how she takes on something new! And both of Emery Lord's books are wonderful--I can only imagine When We Collide is going to be as well! I've been dying dying dying to read one of Katherine Reay's books and since her new one is Bronte-related, that'll have to be the first! :D

    1. YES! Seeing her craft an entirely new world (not dependent on The Selection) will be amazing. I'm hoping it'll be great.

      Yay for Emery Lord (highly anticipating her next release!) and I hope you like Katherine's novels. I think you will... they're all amazing in their own right. :)

      Happy reading, Rachel - and thanks so much for visiting.

  11. Charity Bishop is one that I should of put on my list! Though, I have only read one of her books. I have another one on my kindle that I simply must get around to reading.:)
    Have you finished The Bronte Plot then? I just started it last night, and wound up reading over a third of it in one setting.;) I am loving the story!

    1. I fell badly I've not read Charity's books, but they are on my MUST. And I *know* reading them will happen. Just a question of when. :)

      I have finished The Bronte Plot. Oh my, goodness. It's amazing in a class all its own! I'm glad you are enjoying as well... and I totally get reading that much in one sitting. It's a tough one to put down. :)

  13. Definitely going to check out some of these authors! I have yet to read an Emery Lord book but I really really want to! Especially her book Open Road Summer I think it's called? Anyways, really love your list! :D

    1. Thanks for visiting, Kristin. Yay for potential new authors. Those are ALWAYS fun. As for Emery's first book, yes, I believe that is its name. I read her sophomore novel, but oh my, it's amazing. Happy reading. :)

  14. I have to agree with you on Katherine Reay and Melissa Tagg-- love them and I would buy anything they write at this point! Also, I have to add Sarah Sundin and Jessica Dotta to my auto-buy list. Of course, there are many more, but the budget doesn't really like that :)

    1. Katherine's novels are all brilliant in their own right. I'm super anxious to chat up The Bronte Plot with ya, Cassie! And of course, Melissa is superior in her genre. I love that not only are her stories funny, she crafts such "real" characters. Most of them feel like our best friend. :)

      Yay for Sarah Sundin! Love her books, and I've yet to complete Jessica's series. I think. I don't know, really... I do forget what I've read and what I haven't. ;)

      Glad you were able to comment, Cassie... and apologies again for all the trouble you have when visiting here. :/

  15. Oh yes! I can whole-heartedly agree with you about Dani Pettrey. I'm tempted to re-read the entire Alaskan Courage series. I think another author for me would be Janette Oke. I really enjoyed reading the last book she wrote with her daughter.

    1. Dani's books are amazing - such adventure and of course, the setting is unique. I own a TON of Janette's books. They were basically all my pre-teen and teen reading consisted of. But I'll confess, I've not kept up with her most recent releases. I'm glad to hear they're good, Heather. :)
