Let’s Discuss: Who Are Your Auto-Buy Authors?
There are just some authors I love so much that I am willing to read any and all future works sight and description unseen. I mean, the image above says it all.
So here are my main questions for you:
–What authors have made your coveted auto-buy list?
–Is there a certain number of books you have to read by an author for them to make the list?
–Has an author even been *gasp* REMOVED from your list?!
For me, my auto-buy author list is small but well-considered. They are currently as follows:
- Leigh Bardugo
- Kasie West
- Jenny Han
- Holly Black
- Rae Carson
- Miranda Kenneally
- Sarah J. Maas
- Jodi Meadows
- Rosamund Hodge
- Kerstin Gier
This seems like a lot now that I’m looking at it, but I literally read a hundred books a year. So, it’s really pretty small.
For many, I’ve read the entirety of their works, but others have only taken 2 books to persuade me to love them for life.
As for REMOVING authors from my list, I don’t think I’m actively realizing it at the time so I can really only think of one situation.
I was really into reading this epic fantasy series (adult, not YA), and the author started a new series so of course I grabby hands-it. You guys, it was SO BAD. Like, the whole time I kept expecting a twist or for SOMETHING to happen. It never did.
I think I would still buy a new release from the author, but I would be more wary and check out reviews first for sure.
So, who made your cut?!
