Auto-Buy Authors

AutoBuyAuthors

Hello fellow bookworms 📚 It’s time for another Top Five Wednesday, which is a weekly meme which was created by Lainey and is now hosted by Sam! This week’s topic is Auto-Buy Authors in SFF! I’ve been wanting to talk about my Auto-Buy Authors for a while now, so I was super happy to see this week’s topic! However, I’ve chosen the authors regardless of what genre they write in. Even then there’s only one contemporary author on my list, which just reinforces how much I LOVE Fantasy 😄 I’ve listed 8 authors as I couldn’t stop myself and have included what books by them I read, plus what new books they just put out, are going to put out soon (I counted 2018 and 2019 releases for that)!

What does it take to become an Auto-Buy Author for me?

  • Have at least three books I rated 5 stars OR have one 5 star book that I adore beyond everything else and makes me hopeful for the author’s other/future works! Basically I need to absolutely love the work the author puts out, the more books I loved, the more likely it is that I will buy everything they decide to put out.
  • Make me love all their upcoming projects.An auto-buy author usually gets me excited for everything they plan, all their upcoming releases are those that I immediately need to get many hands on them! Therefore, I don’t consider authors to be ‘auto-buy’ if they have upcoming projects that don’t really interest me and only a few that I’m interest in. I need to be interested in EVERYTHING they put out.
  • Get me invested in them personally. Obviously I need to not only love the books, but also the author behind them. Usually auto-buy authors are those that could be considered writing idols – I admire them, follow them on Twitter and I’m up to date with what they are planning. I’m not only following their books, but I’m also interested in them personally and would love to meet them.
  • I read their book at least 6 months ago. This is something I took into consideration with this list, because especially with debut authors of those whose book I only just read in the last months, I’m hesitant to call them auto-buy authors. I need a bit more time to consider if this is an author I would invest my money in without a doubt. That’s why I included honorable mentions (but who am I kidding, they will probably become auto-buy authors soon)

Jennifer L. Armentrout

JLA was the first author that came to my mind! I absolutely love how she writes swoon-worthy romances that get me every time and never fail to let me down. I can never resist her super fun, entertaining books with lovable characters! I’ve read a lot of her books and yet there are still more, as she’s writing at the speed of light, which makes it hard to catch up! (but also: there’s always more content!) I’ve also recently meet her at a book fair and despite the meeting being very short (there were so many people in line), she was so nice!

Susan Dennard

If you’re new here I admire Susan Dennard! The Witchlands Series has become one of my favorite Series of all time and I will not stop until I have screamed at absolutely everyone to read the books, because they are so good yet deserve a lot more recognition. Susan is one of my favorite authors as well and such a lovely person who cares for her fans, therefore, I will buy everything she puts out ever and keep supporting her! You should definitely join her newsletter and look at her website for some amazing writing tips!

Maria V. Snyder

Of course it counts if I have only read one book! Look I have been really bad with keeping up, because Maria V. Snyder has a lot of books out that I haven’t read, but I ADORED Poison Study, so I will read everything she writes, ever. Starting with the Study Series, which I still have not completed, because I am the worst, but I really want to get to this soon! I have high hopes in her other works as well and they all sounds very interesting to me! Sadly my library has none of them, so it might be a while until I can buy her other books.

C.C. Hunter

I’ve loved this author way before I got into blogging! I was absolutely obsessed with the Shadow Falls Series 4 years back and have followed the author for years now. I remember that this was actually how I had my first ever author interaction, way before Twitter, so C.C. Hunter will always have a special place in my heart. I recently reread her books and I loved them all the same, so now I want to get to the rest of her books, especially as I’ve heard amazing reviews about This Heart of Mine from several bloggers I follow!

Rick Riordan

Good Old Uncle Rick never disappoints! He’s my most read author with 15 books, so you could say that I love all his books and buy them so I can devour them! I’ve given every single book by him 5 stars and I don’t think this will change, so of course he’s in my top 3 of all time favorite authors and a natural auto-buy author. I have all of his books, excluding bonus content, but I want to get that as well, when I have a bit of money to spare! Basically Rick Riordan is my fave and I love how he supports diversity and includes it more and more in his books!

Books I already read

  • Percy Jackson Series
  • Kane Chronicles Trilogy
  • Magnus Chase Trilogy
  • The Hidden Oracle
  • The Dark Prophecy
  • The Lost Hero
  • The Son of Neptune

Angie Thomas

Is anybody surprised that I put Angie on this list? I mean obviously I’m going to read everything that she decides to put out, after The Hate U Give took me and the entire bookish community by storm. I’m very sad that her upcoming release On the Come Up was delayed and pushed until 2019, but I’m all the more excited to get my hands on it next year, as I’m sure it’s going to be very good! I was fortunate enough to meet Angie last year and she’s such a sweetheart & made me feel so at ease!

Roshani Chokshi

Her books are so underrated please read them! I have been smitten with this author since The Star-Touched Queen, because it was so good and not at all what the Goodreads Rating might have suggested. The book had everything I wanted – mythology, slow-burn romance, handsome princes, a headstrong heroine and a flesh-eating DEMON horse. And the writing … it’s so beautiful and vivid, I wish I could write like that! I’m very excited to read A Crown of Wishes and Aru Shah!

Lynn Raven

You might not know her, but this is the author of my fave book! Like THE favorite book, the absolute number #1 since 6(?) years that no other book has been able to surpass. The book is Blutbraut (which is sadly only available in German otherwise I would scream more often about it), which I have such a fond memory of and which has such a personal meaning to me that no other book will ever be able to beat it. The author’s other works are very similar, so I loved every single one I read. Sadly, there are no news on upcoming books, it has been THREE years since her last release and soon I’ll have read all of her books I am SUFFERING here.

  • Hexenfluch

What are some of your auto-buy authors? Do they have any releases in 2018 that you want to buy? 📚

  1. I find it amazing that there are so many authors on here that didn’t know, or haven’t read books from?! I know now who to add to my TBR haha. I agree with you about Angie Thomas and Jen Wilde, will read anything these two write next, that’s for sure! I haven’t read Roshani Chokshi’s Star Touched Queen just yet, but am really, really looking forward to it. Also, Jennifer L. Armentrout’s books sounds like my kind of books, I’ll have to give them a try 🙂
    Thank you so much for sharing! 🙂 x

    1. I’m glad that I could introduce you to a few new authors! 🙂
      Oh yes, I love these two and I’m so excited for their upcoming releases 😍
      I really hope you try out both Roshani and JLA, because I loved their books a lot! 💗 The Star-Touched Queen is so beautifully written and the characters are amazing! JLA writes a lot of swoon-worthy romances that are perfect if you’re in the mood for a lighter read!

      💗💗💗

    1. Thank you! Her writing style is so beautiful 😍 Omg that makes me so excited for A Crown of Wishes! I have been meaning to read it, but haven’t found the time so far 😮 I’m so excited for Aru Shah as well, it’s going to be great!

  2. This is a really interesting list of authors and I’m almost ashamed to say that I’ve only read two of them so far: Angie Thomas (obviously) and Rick Riordan! I’ve read the first two Magnus Chase books and the first Apollo book and while I ADORE Magnus Chase and friends, Apollo did not work for me. At all. I found the character so annoying with his constant talk of his past lovers, etc. Nope. Not for me! Now I just need to finish the Magnus Chase trilogy so I don’t forget EVERYTHING that happened in the first two books. xD

    You always praising Susan Dennard and the Witchland series definitely has made me curious about it! I might have to check it out soon-ish! 😀

    1. Magnus Chase is amazing!! It’s my favorite Series by Rick Riordan and I’m so mad we only got 3 books 😱 I definitely encourage you to read The Ship of the Dead!! 😀 I do love Apollo’s Series as well, but I have to agree that Apollo is not a character everyone is going to like. He can definitely be very annoying 😂

      Mission accomplished 😈 If you end up reading it, please tell me all about your feelings and thoughts!! 😍

      1. Btw! On my way home yesterday, I saw that our local library was open so I stopped by to see what kind of books they had and actually picked up the first Percy Jackson book! I figured it might be best to at least give it a TRY and see if I can like Rick’s earlier books too and since I can borrow the entire series from the library there’s non ‘risk’ involved! 😀

        I will! 🙂

      2. Yes I’m so excited to hear that!! The Percy Jackson Series is such a comfort read for me 😍 I do hope you end up liking the books! I reread them last year and loved them all the same, but you can definitely see how much Rick Riordan progressed with future books as well!

  3. I really have to read Truthwitch asap, it sounds so good and someone compared it to Avatar: the last Airbender, soooo. It has to be great 😍😍

  4. I love The Star-Touched Queen as well! It’s one of my all time favourite books! ❤ Roshani Chokshi has such a beautiful writing style and I want to read all of her books as well. I already own A Crown of Wishes and I can't wait to get around to it. 🙂
