Top Ten Tuesday #13

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's topic is the top ten authors you have on your "auto-buy" list.

This topic turned out to be kind of depressing for me, because apparently a lot of my favorite authors died during the last few years - Madeleine L'Engle, Anne McCaffrey, Brian Jacques, Dianna Wynne Jones, and Ray Bradbury.  I think there's someone else I'm forgetting, but you get the point.  So I had to rethink my list of authors, and here's what I came up with:

The Top Ten Authors on My "Auto-Buy" List
  • John Green because...
    • The Fault in Our Stars
    • Hazel & Augustus
    • Paper Towns
    • An Abundance of Katherines
    • The vlogbrothers and nerdfighters
  • Rick Riordan because...
    • The Percy Jackson series
    • The Kane Chronicles
    • Percy & Annabeth
  • Robin McKinley because...
    • Beauty
    • Spindle's End
    • Rose Daughter
    • Chalice
  • Terry Pratchett because...
    • The Discworld series
    • The Wee Free Men
    • Death
  • Patricia C. Wrede because...
    • The Enchanted Forest Chronicles
    • Mairelon the Magician
    • Dragons!
  • Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman because...
    • The Dragonlance Chronicles
    • The Dragonlance Legends
    • The Raistlin Chronicles
    • More dragons!
  • Suzanne Collins because...
    • The Hunger Games
    • Peeta
  • Caragh M. O'Brien because...
    • Birthmarked
    • Prized
    • Leon
  • Veronica Roth because...
    • Divergent
    • Tris & Tobias
  • Kaitlin Bevis because...
    • The Daughters of Zeus series
    • Hades & Persephone retelling
    • Crazy cliffhangers!
And I know technically he shouldn't be included because he falls under the "Authors I Love But are Dead" category, but I'm including him anyway because his son keeps publishing his works posthumously.
  • J.R.R. Tolkien because...
    • The Lord of the Rings... enough said.


  1. Ah, Robin McKinley- I should have included her on my list. I love her books so very much! Great list!

  2. Rick Riordan is so much fun. I need to catch up on the Heroes of Olympus books, though.

  3. I really need to start reading Rick Riordan! There are a few names on your list that I'm not familiar with so looking forward to changing that soon!


Thank you so much for commenting! I always appreciate reading what you have to say.
