auto-buy/borrow authors
posted by soe 12:08 am

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic from That Artsy Reader Girl is “auto-buy authors.” I’m positive I don’t have ten (although I’ll note below which they are), but I certainly have ten whose works must immediately be put on hold at the library:

  1. Jasper Fforde (must buy)
  2. Rainbow Rowell (must buy)
  3. Barbara Kingsolver
  4. J.K. Rowling/Robert Galbraith
  5. Sherry Thomas (I need to track down her backlist)
  6. Brian Selznick (must buy his later works; still have to finish going through his backlist)
  7. Toni Morrison
  8. Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (only applies to their works together, since I haven’t read either of their solo catalogues)
  9. Becky Albertalli
  10. Nicola Yoon

Erin Morganstern has only published The Night Circus, but if her sophomore effort, due out this fall, is anywhere near as good, I’ll be adding her to my must-buy list, too.

Category: books. There is/are 6 Comments.

JK Rowling! I love the world she created with Harry Potter. I didn’t read her adult novel though. I’m debating on if I should give it a try. Great list 🙂

I haven’t read anything by JK Rowling other than the Harry Potter series. I’ll have to look into some of her other work. Here is my Top Ten Tuesday.

J.K. Rowling has been on lots of lists this week. I wonder if she’ll ever write under another pen name? I was so surprised when she did it the first time.

The Harry Potter books were must-buys. I’m looking forward to the day when I fall so deeply in love with a series of books that I have to have the books as soon as they hit the shelves.

Correction to my previous comment: “with another series.” Harry Potter was that kind of series. I hope there will be others.

Kaufman and Kristoff make a great team. 🙂
