Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists! Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join.
This week’s theme: Usagi’s Top Ten Auto-Buy Authors List!
This one was really, really hard to decide, guys. I have so many auto-buy authors on my list, it’s not even funny. So the ones that didn’t quite make it into the top ten are in the runners-up category. Anyway…
In no particular order –
1. Julie Kagawa. Book(s) that led to this decision: “The Iron King”.
2. David Levithan. Book(s) that led to this decision: “Every Day”.
3. Holly Black. Book(s) that led to this decision: “Tithe”, “White Cat”
4. Hannah Moskowitz. Book(s) that led to this decision: “Teeth”
5. Francesca Lia Block. Book(s) that led to this decision: “Dangerous Angels: The Weetzie Bat Books”, “Wasteland”. (Seriously guys how could my mentor not be on my auto-buy list?)
6. Cory Doctorow. Book(s) that led to this decision: “Little Brother”
7. Terry Goodkind. Book(s) that led to this decision: The “Sword of Truth” series
8. Marissa Meyer. Book(s) that led to this decision: “Scarlet”
9. Laini Taylor. Book(s) that led to this decision: “The Daughter of Smoke & Bone”
10. John Ajvide Lindqvist. Book(s) that led to this decision: “Let the Right One In”
