Today’s post is really about trust, isn’t it? How much you trust authors to not let you down and deliver something you’ll really love. The authors I’ve listed have not betrayed my trust and have shown me time and again how talented they really are.

Top 10 Authors I’d Put on My Auto-Buy List
2Kristen Cashore– Loved it all. Need them all. Want more.
3Maggie Stiefvater– I only read the first book of the Shiver series and then The Raven Boys last year and The Scorpio Races the year before that. Her style seems to change and adapt, and I really like how unexpectedly awesome her writing is.
4Leigh Bardugo– I can’t even go there. I just finished Siege and Storm and I’m DYING for more. Bardugo better bring in the final book. AGH!
5Sharon Shinn– Although Shinn’s most recent book had me doubting her…I’d still at least try anything new she writes.
6Juliet Marillier– Omg, this author. All of her stuff is lyrical and folklorish and rich. If you haven’t read her Daughter of the Forest series – you should. It’s not YA, but it’s straight up fantasy-awesomeness.
7Sarah Dessen– I haven’t read her latest stuff, but Dessen was my go-to author in high school. Her books are so deep and full of amazing life lessons. LEGIT.
8Marissa Meyer– We’ve only had a short relationship, but I think Meyer and I are in it for the long haul.
9Maria V. Snyder— I have LITERALLY read all of her books. Why stop now, right?!
10Shannon Hale/strong>— Goose Girl hooked me back in the day. Plus I love all her priness-y books. And, she’s awesome on the Twitters.
