Okay, I like doing lists, but I’m starting to have a bit of a problem with the TTT topics. They’re beginning to feel repetitive. Authors I own the most books from. Authors I read the most. And now, auto-buy authors. By nature, these lists are going to be pretty similar. If I own a lot of books by someone, I’m probably going to read a lot of their books, and eventually, they’re going to be an auto-buy (I’m using auto-buy to mean that I know I will eventually buy these books, not that I will always buy them before I read them. Rowling is the only one whose books I currently pre-order). Maybe this isn’t as much of a problem when you have multiple blog submitters, but when pulling from just one person’s preferences… well, here’s a list you’ve pretty much read before. I don’t actually have ten authors, so I’ve added a couple that I want to be on this list but I just haven’t gotten around reading all their books yet, so they haven’t quite made it onto my go-to list.
I’ve added a link to the next available book from the author. For those without scheduled releases, I’ve included anthologies.
J.K. Rowling – Cause she’s amazing. I love everything she writes (even those middle Harry Potter books that needed another content edit).
Gillian Flynn – I love her style. Love it.
Courtney Summers – Gritty. Dark and gritty. It’s YA perfection.
Steve Brezenoff – For the male perspective on YA.
(Both of these authors are in this anthology – yay!)
Brenna Yovanoff – This lady writes mood like no one else.
Tana French – Modern mystery writing at its finest.
The authors who will eventually make the cut when I get my head out of my ass.
Daniel O’Malley – He only has one book out. I own it. I am very impatiently waiting for the next book to be released. I feel like the date keeps moving.
Libba Bray – The Diviners is on the list. Beauty Queens was awesome. But, I just haven’t been able to get into the Gemma Doyle series.
Jasper Fforde – I’ve only read The Erye Affair. I loved it. I bought it. When I get around to reading the next one, I’m sure I’ll buy it as well.
Alan Bradley – Flavia is a freaking delightful character. I actually don’t know why I haven’t read the rest of the series.
