This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is a free pick. I had to think about it for a while, but then decided on this one. Which authors would I ‘auto-buy’ from? In other words, which authors would I automatically buy anything from, no matter the book? I’m actually loyal to quite a few authors… be it their old works or anything they are going to release soon. I haven’t even necessarily read all of their books yet, but what I’ve read I love so much I will read about anything 😉
Top Five Authors I Auto-Buy From
- Haruki Murakami
This one was obvious, huh. The only reason I haven’t read everything yet is because I want to cherish the experience of reading everything for the first time. So I’m going through his work slowly… to give him some time to catch up and write more books that I will just go out and buy no matter what.
- J.K. Rowling
She got me with Harry Potter. And I enjoyed The Casual Vacancy. I still have to read The Cuckoo’s Calling but… soon!
- Carlos Ruiz Zafón
I love Zafón’s work. Be it The Cemetery of Forgotten Books series, or his young adult novels. I’m almost caught up with only Marina left to go. Hurry up, Zafón! I want to spend my money!
- Neil Gaiman
I haven’t read nearly as much of his work as I’d like, but I love what I’ve read and Gaiman is an awesome person. All the ingredients for auto-buying.
- A shared #5: Banana Yoshimoto and Donna Tartt
Yoshimoto is climbing up on my list of favourite authors. I LOVE her style. When I run out of English translations I can even cope with her style in Japanese so keep ’em coming, Yoshimoto! And Tartt got me with The Secret History and didn’t disappoint me with The Goldfinch. I still have to read The Little Friend but I’llbuyanythingIdon’tevencare.
(Look at all these photogenic authors!)
Do you have authors that you support no matter what and that you pretty much auto-buy from?
