Top Ten Tuesday: If These Authors Write It, I’ll Buy It

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish

It’s not very often that I’ll auto-buy an author’s book, but these 10 authors have made the cut for various reasons. Which authors’ books will you buy automatically? I’d love to know which authors I should add to this list.

Miranda Kenneally

1. Miranda Kenneally–Although the Hundred Oaks series isn’t your typical series, I usually get bored after five books. That’s simply not the case with these books. I can’t get enough of them! I’ve read all six and every single one is different and very much its own book. I’ll buy whatever Miranda writes.

2. Trish Doller–I don’t think I need an explanation for Trish’s books either, to be honest. Her books never fail to make me swoon and/or cry.

3. Matthew Quick–Adult or YA, I will automatically read his books. They are so utterly fabulous, which is why he’s my author crush.

Sarah Dessen

4. Sarah Dessen–Does this choice really need an explanation? 🙂

5. Amy Fellner Dominy–Amy’s books keep getting better and every time I read one I thoroughly enjoy it.

6. Geoff Herbach–Geoff Herbach’s writing has such a strong and authentic voice that it’s impossible to resist reading his books. Not that I would ever feel the need to resist reading one!

Michelle Hodkin

7. Michelle Hodkin–The Mara Dyer trilogy was too much fun not to trust that the rest of Michelle Hodkin’s books will be great.

8. Laurie Halse Anderson–Maybe not her middle grade since I’m not as drawn to MG titles, but I’ll definitely always buy her YA. There are times that I find myself craving a Laurie Halse Anderson book, which is usually when I decide to read Speak out loud to my students.

9. Neal Shusterman–I still need to finish reading the Unwind dystology and I plan on reading Challenger Deep before school starts, but nevertheless, he’s a staple in my classroom library. His books are smart, insightful and engaging.

10. John Green–It feels like a cliche adding him to this list, but I have to be honest. Even though I’m not into all the hype, I do enjoy his books and know that I will.


  1. I have read all of JGreen’s books — solo and co-writes. I just love him. I also will never walk away from a Rainbow Rowell book (she creates the most amazing characters). Sarah Dessen is also on my short list. Her books are usually able to leave me warm and fuzzy. Other authors I do not pass up: David Levithan, Liane Moriarty, Jennifer E Smith, Julie Kagawa, Penny Reid, and too many others.

  2. What a great list! Amy Fellner Dominy is one of my favorite authors! Along with many more on that list. So nice to see them all get the recognition they deserve!!

    Hi! I agree about Laurie Halse Anderson- I buy all the YA but not the MG so much. Sarah Dessen does not need an explanation 🙂 I love Chris Crutcher, too. Great list.

  4. Great list of authors! I would add Marissa Meyer, Holly Black, Matt de la Pena, Marie Lu & Veronica Rossi.

I love comments!
