Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was originally created by The Broke and the Bookish but was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This week’s topic is Auto Buy Authors.
July 16th, 2019: Auto Buy Authors
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
I love her writing so much. I have never rated a book by her less than four stars with Half of a Yellow Sun being my favourite out of all her books. I am such a fan that I have spent hours scouring the internet for sources to her short stories that she released before her novels and have managed to read all bar two I believe. I need a magazine subscription to read those two remaining stories.
I have loved both her books and am eagerly awaiting her third…although sadly I believe she is taking a break from writing at the moment to pursue other projects.
This man writes the words that are etched deep in my soul. 100% auto buy for life.
She is the queen of light hearted fiction and I have read every single adult book she has written…I firmly intend to read her children’s book series too.
Ever since I fell in love with the Legend series I just automatically buy any new releases she has.
She is a goddess. Her books are simply genius. To not automatically buy everything she writes is just anathema to me.
I fell head over heels in love with his writing when I read Grief is the Thing with Feathers and even more so when I read his follow up, Lanny. So definitely an auto buy for me.
Lydia is such a talented and I think under-rated UK YA author. I have read both of her YA novels and adore them both. Definitely recommend her to fans of authentic contemporary fiction with a social conscious.
After reading the gorgeousness that was The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender I knew that I would have to automatically buy and read every other novel she writes. I didn’t quite love The Price Guide to the Occult as much but she is still definitely deserving of an auto buy author nod.
Carlos Ruiz Zafon
The man wrote The Shadow of the Wind and therefore I adore him and am currently collecting all the english language versions of his books.
So that’s my list of ten. If Jane Austen, Douglas Adams and JD Salinger were still alive they would 100% be on this list too.
