Top Ten Tuesday (13): Auto-Buy List

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic. I’m a huge fan of lists, so this meme is right up my alley! 


This week’s topic is Top Ten Authors That I’d Put On My Auto-Buy List. These are really in no particular order.
J.K. Rowling  Of course she’s at the top of the list.  I haven’t yet read The Casual Vacancy, but I do own it and plan to read it soon!  And I’ll definitely buy any of her books, no matter what others may think of them.
Marissa Meyer  I’ve only read two of Marissa’s books, but her Lunar Chronicles series is currently my third favorite series (1st is Harry Potter, 2nd is The Hunger Games), and if the third and fourth book are as good as the first two, this series will move up to number 2 for me.
John Green  I’ve read all of John’s books (except for his novellas and compilations) and I’ve loved all of them.  He’s definitely one of the authors whose books I’ll pre-order without even knowing what they’re about!
David Levithan  I haven’t yet read all of David Levithan’s books, but he is just such a beautiful writer that I can’t see myself ever deciding NOT to read one of his books.
Scott Westerfeld  I’ve only read Scott’s Uglies series, but I own several of his other books, and I hope to read Leviathan this year.  Every time I go to this used book store in town, I find another one of his books to buy, which makes me very happy!
Suzanne Collins  I haven’t yet read Suzanne’s Underland Chronicles series, but I own the first two books.  I’m looking forward to reading those soon, as well as any other books she writes in the future!
So my list is kind of short today.  I have lots of other authors that I LOVE, but with most of them, I’ve only read one or two of their books, so I feel like I can’t really put them in the auto-buy category yet.  But there are several contenders, and I bet this time next year I’ll have a couple more authors on that auto-buy list! 
What authors are on your auto-buy list?  Let me know, or leave a link to your TTT in the comments, and I’ll stop by your blog!

    I have seen J.K. Rowling and Marissa Meyer on so many lists, and they completely deserve to be there. Great TTT!

    I haven't read everything by John Green yet but I loved The Fault in the Stars so much that I was tempted to put him on my list anyway! Great list!

    J.K. Rowling I have to agree with you on. And oooh I just picked up Scott Westerfield's Leviathan as the kindle daily deal on amazon for cheap so I'm very happy to hear he's on your list.

    Great author picks! :-)

    Even though they aren't all autobuys for me, I love every author on your list.
