All bookish people have their own favourite authors and I’m sure that we all have our auto-buy authors too. I thought that in this post I would share with you the authors who are on my auto-buy list. For anyone unsure what I mean by auto-buy, these are the authors whose work I will preorder/buy regardless of anything: I buy the book because I love the author and I know I’ll more than likely love the book!
Without further ado, here are some of my auto-buy authors!
P.s. Author images are all from their Goodreads pages.
I am 10000000% sure that I do not need to explain why J.K. Rowling is on this list. Harry Potter books literally made my childhood and I will never be able to thank this wonderful lady enough for that. I am also a big fan of the books she has published as Robert Galbraith. Keep it coming, J.K!
Okay, so I only discovered Leigh’s books last year (I know!!) and in 2016 I read them all. I love everything about the Grishaverse that Leigh has created. I also went to an event with her a while back and she was so funny and lovely which just sealed her place on this list. Leigh writes young adult fantasy novels and I highly recommend them, especially the Six of Crows duology. I’m currently
looking forward to dying for her Wonder Woman story released later this year!
V. E. Schwab
Victoria Schwab (or V. E. Schwab) is also one of my favourite 2016 finds! I have not read all of her books yet but I did devour three of them last year and I am currently really highly anticipating A Conjuring of Light (YES LILA BARD) and Our Dark Duet. I need to do some work on her backlist but I know that whatever she writes in the future I will be buying!
If you’ve read some of my blog posts before this one then you will know that in 2016 I fell in love with Radio Silence. At the end of last year I also completely loved Solitaire. I think that Alice is a fantastic writer and I love the characters that she creates. I met her at YAShot back in October and she was fab!
I’ve spent the last two weeks constantly talking about Wing Jones, Katherine’s debut novel (that’s right, that wonderful book is a debut!!!). I loved the book so much that I already know I will buy whatever Katherine decides to write next. I’m going to a panel with her next Saturday and I can’t wait to meet her!
I have read both of Sara’s novels and loved both of them. Her most recent novel A Quiet Kind of Thunder has left such an impression on me that will last a very long time. I love the way that Sara writes friendships and teenage characters, they are realistic and her books also have the most beautiful covers!
Well there you are! Those fabulous ladies are just some of my auto-buy authors. I highly recommend checking out their books and seeing for yourselves just how fab they are.
Do you have any auto-buy authors? Who are they?
