Tag: Author Auto-Buy List

Posted July 22, 2014 in list, Tag / 2 Comments


Thanks to Jillian from Jillian’s Books for tagging me.

Note: I don’t really auto-buy books at all. My buying is usually pretty sporadic. I try not to buy books at all, actually, since I own so many that I haven’t read or have to re-read in order to review. It’s quite awful. I have over 400 books and I’ve probably read only half. So basically this list is of authors I try to read the most books from. Actually, it might even be just authors I love and will read more books from in the future, if they write more. I’m not going to include authors with really long series’ (such as Sara Shepard with Pretty Little Liars) because that’s cheating.

1) Laini Taylor

Laini TaylorDaughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1)Days of Blood & Starlight (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #2)Dreams of Gods & Monsters (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #3)

I’ve only read the first in this series, but already I know that I would read anything she wrote. As Hazel (The Fault in Our Stars) so aptly put it, I would read her grocery lists.

2) Kristin Cashore

Kristin CashoreGraceling (Graceling Realm, #1)Fire (Graceling Realm, #2)Bitterblue (Graceling Realm, #3)

Well, she IS my favorite author, after all. The Seven Kingdoms series wasn’t nearly enough for me and I will be reading whatever she writes in the future.

3) Lewis Carroll

Lewis CarrollAlice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass

Haha. I know he’s dead but I’m making it my life goal to read everything he ever wrote. I own an anthology of his work but I haven’t read it completely yet. I’ve read the 2 Alice in Wonderland books (and seen nearly every movie version) and a few poems by him. As you probably already know, I have an obsession.

4) Rick Riordan

Rick RiordanThe Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)The Lost Hero (The Heroes of Olympus, #1)

Can’t beat Percy Jackson. I love his Greek mythology series’. I haven’t finished the Heroes of Olympus series yet but I will. I disliked the Kane Chronicles, but I like his other books.

You may be wondering why J.K. Rowling isn’t on this list. I do love the Harry Potter series dearly. But I haven’t read any other books by her outside of the HP series and their companion books. I might someday, but they aren’t top priority.

It’s a pretty short list. I almost added so many other authors, but then realized I wouldn’t read ALL of their books, just most. So special mention to Cornelia Funke and Jennifer Kohout.

Yay! I’ve always wanted to read from Laini Taylor! I haven’t read Daughter of Smoke and Bone, but I heard that it’s really popular so it’s been in my TBR since forever. I love the Percy Jackson series too :> Loved your list!
