Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Auto-Buy Authors

                             Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish.

Pam's List:
1.  Cassandra Clare.  I LOVED both the Mortal Instruments series and the Infernal Devices series.  She's writing more Shadowhunter books and I say, keep them coming!
2.  Jessica Shirvington.  The Embrace series is one of my all time favorites.  And the Disruption duology was fantastic!  Her stand-alone book, One Past Midnight (a.k.a. Between the Lives) was also incredible.  She writes in such a way that I feel all the feels!
3.  Richelle Mead.  Vampire Academy and Bloodlines…LOVE them both!  I also love her adult books as well, especially the Age of X series.  
4.  Kasie West.  Every book written by Kasie West just makes me happy.  Banter, swoony romance…it doesn't get any better.
5.  Stephanie Perkins.  Again, her books just make me happy.  I smile almost the whole time I'm reading them.  Even though her next book is a horror novel, I'm still going to read it.

Sheri's List: Many of Pam's choices would be on my list as well but I thought I would add a few more favorites.

1. Marissa Meyer. Marissa Meyer helped me fall in love with  fairy tales once again, but of course these are not your typical fairy tales.
2. Diana Peterfreund.  I fell in love with her style and world building in For Darkness Shows the Stars and I can't wait to read more.
3. Claire LaZebnik.  I am always looking for a well-written Jane Austen spin-off and these books never disappoint.
4. Kerstin Gier.  Her Precious Stone trilogy might be one of my favorite time travel YA series and I can't wait to see what she writes next.
5. Scott Westerfeld, Stephenie Meyer, Suzanne Collins, Veronica Roth. Each of these authors hooked me from page one and I definitely can't wait to see what they right next.


  1. Richelle Mead is one of my auto buy authors too! I absolutely loved One Past Midnight, so I'm definitely going to have to check out her Embrace series, I think I actually have the first in the series already :)

    Oh, and Kasie West is amazing, I'd buy a dictionary if she wrote it ;)

  2. Diana P is on my list, too, because I loved FDStS and TtSSS! And of course Marissa Meyer is on my list as well, because I am loving her Lunar Chronicle series!

  3. If only Stephanie Meyer and Suzanne Collins would write anything else....

    But yes, I too will buy anything by Kasie West, Stephanie Perkins and Marissa Meyer. Have you read anything by Emory Lord yet (Open Road Summer or The Start of Me and You)? If not, you MUST. She is an auto-buy for me!

  4. Wonderful list, ladies! Richelle Mead I'm on the fence because she likes love triangles lol, but yes to Kasie West, Marissa Meyer, Diana Peterfreund, and Stephanie Perkins!

  5. Yes, yes, yes to Kasie West and Stephenie Perkins. I would love it if Suzanne Collins would come out with something new already! I have For Darkness, but still need to read it. Great topic!

  6. Ha, you'll be satisfied with Cassandra Clare for a while now. Dark Artifices, Shadowhunter Academy e-books, the Magnus Bane ebooks, and then there was another series I can't remember.... something with an H in it too.

    Ahhh, I have yet to read a Jessica Shirvington book, but I like that description: "She writes in such a way that I feel all the Feels." That's Richelle Mead for me. Can't wait for the Ruby Circle!! Kasie West and Stephanie Perkins - YES YES YES. And what you said about SP and the horror novel. Also, you should totally read Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda this year. I can totally see SP fans loving it like I did.

    And yes, Sheri! I wish Diana Peterfreund would write more books like For Darkness Shows the Stars. Those were so beautiful o.o. Kerstin Gier has a new series coming out, A Dream... something. I forget the name, but it's coming soon if you're interested, Sheri.

    Great picks, ladies :). I just love that picture of Veronica Roth on the red carpet. So classy!

  7. There are three YA authors coming to my local bookstore next week and it's great, but terrible. I only have so much I can spend on books!!! Marissa Meyer and Rachelle Meade are two of them. Eek! Love your guys' lists!
