Top Ten Auto-Buy Authors

Posted July 15, 2019 by Jana in Top Ten Tuesday / 22 Comments

Happy TTT! This week’s topic was harder for me than I thought it would be, just because I read books by a LOT of authors, and many of those authors that I love (s0 far) only have 1-2 books out right now. I feel like an author has to have been around for a while and have multiple books out in order to be an auto-buy author for me. For example, I’m thinking of this one author and I love her a lot but she’s released two books in two years, with no more announced right now. I know I’ll buy it, but it’s hard to put her into this category since she is so new and has so few books. So I’m sticking with the authors I’ve been reading for YEARS and have proven how wonderful they are to me!

    I haven’t been reading your blog long enough to guess more than 2, but I knew Christina Lauren and Tracey Garvis-Graves would be on it! The former is definitely reliable, and the latter is someone I could have put on my list if I hadn’t already eyeballed “Covet” long and hard and decided that it was Not For Me.

  2. I agree, I’m more likely to mark an author as auto-buy if they’ve got more works to their name and I therefore have confidence in their ability — not only to craft a story, but also to maintain a series. On the other hand, I also won’t auto-buy everything by even my favorite authors. One of my favs, for example, does both urban fantasy (auto-buy) and thriller (skip).

    I’m not sure if I’ve read anything by the authors on your list, but I’ve heard great things about some of them!

  3. I didn’t participate this week, but among my list would be Michael Ondaatje, Maggie O’Farrell, Rachel Joyce, Patrick Gale, Anne Tyler, Greer Macallister, Ariel Lawhon and Heather Webb. Plus, after reading her debut book “The Last List of Miss Judith Kratt” I’ll be on the lookout for Andrea Bobotis’ next book for SURE!

      • Right now, Tuesdays are my day to post my alternative author interviews, that I call the Countdown Questions. Since I only post on my blog twice a week (Fridays or Saturdays are for either my book reviews or the #6Degrees meme), I’m not sure when I’ll participate in these again. But if a topic comes up that really piques my interest, I might put my interviews on hold. I do like to look through the answers, though!

  4. Tessa Dare is close to being on my list. I read almost all of her books, but I only buy the ones I love and will read more than once. These days, that’s true of a lot of authors I used to auto-buy. I’ve cut back on buying physical books (I’m running out of room!) and I’m using my library more as well.
