Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week everyone is listing the authors who are either on their auto-buy list, or who would be if they had a list. I do happen to have a list (a mental one, but still) and so I am prepared this week! I've also included a few honourable mentions because I feel as though I should mention more awesome people.
Richelle MeadI started my love affair with Richelle's books when I read Vampire Academy in 2011. Since then it's been a total rollercoaster ride. I have finished two of her series (VA and Dark Swan), and I have started Bloodlines. Richelle also has the first book in a new series coming out this year, so I am very excited!
Rachel VincentRachel is another author whose books I would buy no matter what. I read her Shifters series way, WAY back (2009/2010, I think) and I have been a huge fan ever since. Imagine how excited I was to discover that Rachel had a YA series coming out! Soul Screamers became one of my favourite series ever, and it basically cemented my relationship with Rachel's books.
Kody KeplingerThe DUFF is one of my all time favourite novels. I'll continue to read anything that Kody writes, even if they don't quite live up to The DUFF's high standards. Come on, it'd be pretty hard for them to top it!
Darren ShanAHLFSLIGHSDILHDGLDHG. Darren is one of my all time favourite authors, and I am a complete fangirl. I started reading The Saga of Darren Shan when I was eleven, and since then I have bought every single book Darren has written. I haven't read them all yet (I have finished the Demonata series, and have started The Saga of Larten Crepsley, and Zom-B) but still. I will get there eventually!
Stephanie PerkinsStephanie's writing style is one of the best I have ever experienced. She has a way of turning the most simple things into something of beauty. Does that sound cheesy?
Lauren OliverAgain, I love her writing! I fell in love with it in Before I Fall, and then again with the prose in the Delirium trilogy. Have any of you read the final page of Requiem? It made me cry because of the writing alone.
J K RowlingHer children's books, anyway. I still haven't bought The Casual Vacancy, purely because it's too expensive and I'm not all that interested in village drama. I have enough of that in my own village to last a lifetime!
Michelle HodkinI just LOVE the Mara Dyer books. I adore the mystery and thriller elements, and if Michelle comes out with any other books like those I am definitely going to be reading them. I'm sure she would handle other genres perfectly as well!
Jennifer RushBecause I am a fangirl. I adored Altered, and I can't wait to read Bot Wars which comes out at the end of March. EEP!
Morgan MatsonOkay, I have only read one of Morgan's books, but Second Chance Summer stole my heart. I can't wait to see what she writes next!
Honourable mentions: Because I desperately needed more than ten. I haven't included these authors in the main list purely because I have only read one series by them, and... Well, I don't really have that great of an excuse because, let's be honest, they should definitely be included in the top ten! Jennifer L Armentrout, Rick Riordan, Neal Shusterman, Marissa Meyer.
