Top Ten / Authors Whose Books I’ll Auto-Buy

It’s Top Ten Tuesday and today’s topic is top ten authors whose books you’ll add to your Goodreads wishlist before there’s even a blurb or cover!

Top Ten / Authors Whose Books I'll Automatically BuyNon Pratt
I adored Trouble and Remix two brilliant UKYA contemporary novels – and I’ll definitely be reading Non Pratt’s next book, Truth or Dare.

Top Ten / Authors Whose Books I'll Automatically BuyRuta Sepetys
Ruta Sepetys’ two YA historical novels – Between Shades of Gray and Out of the Easyare so very different from each other. I can’t wait for her upcoming book, Salt to the Sea, which I added to my wishlist without even thinking!

Top Ten / Authors Whose Books I'll Automatically BuyPatrick Ness
If it’s a YA novel by Patrick Ness, I’m reading it. I have read his books A Monster Calls, the Chaos Walking trilogy and More Than This – and I’ll soon be reading The Rest of Us Just Live Here.

Top Ten / Authors Whose Books I'll Automatically BuyMorgan Matson
Even though I’ve (shockingly) not yet read Since You’ve Been Gone (soon, soon!), I wanted it as soon as I found out about it. Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour and Second Chance Summer are two of my favourite YA contemporary novels. I also have Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend, which she wrote under the name Katie Finn.

Top Ten / Authors Whose Books I'll Automatically BuyStephanie Perkins
It doesn’t yet have a title, cover or blurb, but I’m very much looking forward to Stephanie Perkins’ upcoming contemporary YA horror story. Anna and the French Kiss, Lola and the Boy Next Door, and Isla and the Happily Ever After are among the best in contemporary romance.

Top Ten / Authors Whose Books I'll Automatically BuyRebecca Stead
I adored Rebecca Stead’s two middle grade mystery novels – Liar & Spy and When You Reach Me and I cannot wait to delve into her latest book, Goodbye Stranger.

Top Ten / Authors Whose Books I'll Automatically BuyJandy Nelson
I only read Jandy Nelson’s I’ll Give You the Sun and The Sky is Everywhere for the first time this year, but I’m reading Fall Boys & Dizzy in Paradise as soon as I can – especially if it’s heartbreaking!

Top Ten / Authors Whose Books I'll Auto-BuyLouise O’Neill
Louise O’Neill’s in a unique position on this list because I haven’t yet read her latest book, Asking For It. But I know I’ll be reading whatever she writes next because I can tell, having read Only Ever Yours, that her writing is stunning and her stories are incredibly important – and need to be told.

Top Ten / Authors Whose Books I'll Automatically BuyRainbow Rowell
Whether they’re young adult novels or adult fiction, I’ll be reading Rainbow Rowell’s upcoming books for a long time yet. I’ve read all of her books so far: Eleanor & Park, Fangirl, Landline & Attachments.

Top Ten / Authors Whose Books I'll Automatically BuyJohn Green
And lastly, now that I’ve read and enjoyed all of John Green’s novelsLooking for Alaska, Paper Towns, The Fault in Our Stars, An Abundance of Katherines and Will Grayson, Will Grayson – I have added his as-yet-untitled and highly anticipated next book to my Goodreads wishlist. How could I not?

Are any of these authors on your auto-buy list?

  1. Great list! 🙂 I could have added many of the authors on your list to mine as well. There are so many wonderful writers out there.

  2. reflectionofthelights

    Great list! I’ll definitely check out some of these books/authors! 🙂

  3. This is a great list! There are so many awesome authors and some I will have to try out.

  4. Patrick Ness, John Green, and Rainbow Rowell are all on my list as well! Jandy Nelson is great, too. I wish she would write more books soon! 🙂

  5. I have so many auto-buy authors, I had trouble picking only ten. Stephanie Perkins and Jandy Nelson SHOULD have been on my list too, but oh well. xD Patrick Ness, John Green and Rainbow Rowell made it to mine too. I really need to get on reading Between Shades of Grey; I’ve heard nothing but brilliants things! (: Great list!

  6. I absolutely ADORE Patrick Ness & he’s defiantly an auto-buy author for me too!

  7. Great picks! I love Rainbow Rowell and she is definitely on my list of auto-buy authors. I really need to get on the bandwagon with Morgan Matson!! xoxo

  8. I just read Remix by Non Pratt and I cannot wait to read Trouble! I haven’t read any Morgan Matson but she’s one of those authors that I make a mental note of to read but never do. Great choices!

  9. Ruta Sepetys’ covers intrigue me – will need to check those books out! My TTT

  10. I’ve read Morgan Matson, Stephanie Perkins, Rainbow Rowell and John Green, and loved their books! Hope you enjoy the new books by these authors 🙂

  11. Rebecca Stead is an author I’ve been meaning to read since hearing you first mention her here many moons ago – this will be rectified in the future, near future hopefully. I love a good middle grade read – I think that particular age range can be overlooked by adults.

    Louise O’Neill is being so highly talked about at the moment but I still need to check out some of her work!

  12. Totally agree about Rowell and Green, I’d also put James Dawson into this mix. His books are always fantastic! Xx

  13. Definitely Patrick Ness, Rainbow Rowell, Stephanie Perkins and John Green. I’m reading Between Shades of Gray atm so maybe that too! Great post 🙂

  14. John Green and Rainbow Rowell are my absolute favourite authors and I now own all of their books, purely because of auto-buy. I’ve worked my way through their works and without a doubt the second either of them publish a new book I’ll be buying it.
    (Aside from them I’d also auto-buy anything Derek Landy)
