Top Ten Tuesday - Auto-Buys
I decided to do my very first Top Ten Tuesday hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. The prompt for today is auto-buy. I am sure I can come up with 10 and then some...
1. Derek Landy. I love Skulduggery Pleasant! I think this series is original compared to other series out there right now and I enjoy seeing the direction the author continues to take. It's about a skeleton detective. So silly, but so fun at the same time.
2. Arthur Slade. I need to get some of his backlist, but since reading Jolted by him I have bought everything.
3. Jacqueline Winspear. I really enjoy the Maisie Dobbs series. I started out reading this series through the library and then I was able to get review copies of her later books after a bit. As a result I went back and got the earlier books and now have a complete set. New book out by her soon!
4. Kristin Cashore. I loved Graceling and the sequels (of sorts). I cannot wait until she releases something new!!
5. James Rollins. I am so behind with Rollins and I feel terrible about that, but I continue to buy his books whenever they are released. That being said it is mostly the ones he writes by himself and I have not read his young series.
6. Bill Willingham. FABLES!!! Anything to do with Fables... I would like to read all his other series, too, but I haven't branched into that financial avenue yet.
7. Brian K. Vaughan. I started reading him last year and have quickly gathered quite the collection. Anything new he comes out with I will buy for sure.
8. Susanna Kearsley. I went into Kearsley not expecting her to be my type of author. I was very very wrong. I love her and get excited for every release!
9. Melanie Benjamin. I loved both Alice I Have Been and The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb. I have her newest book, of course, and can't wait until more!!
10. So. Many. Others. I always get the new books by Audrey Nieffenegger, Lisa See, John Green, David Levithan, etc etc. And I am slowly trying to make authors like Terry Pratchett an auto-buy by attempting to catch-up on his backlist. I also always get Neil Gaiman's new books because while he doesn't always knock my socks off, I still am always willing to try...
