Friday Favorites – Auto-Buy Authors

I’ve really missed doing Friday Favorites, and since no one was currently hosting it, Cait @ Functionally Fictional decided to jump into the gap. Each week, she provides a prompt, and I get to talk about my favorite books that fit the topic. Feel free to join in – the more the merrier!

I love posts like this, because my exposure to authors changes regularly, and my list of auto-buy authors expands pretty often. Authors who write such amazing books that I just need to own them without even knowing anything about the book beforehand include:

  1. Gina L. Maxwell — anything this woman writes is gold. I don’t even need to read the summary of an upcoming book before knowing that I want it.
  2. Pierce Brown — for someone who doesn’t like sci-fi, I sure love his books and already want anything he writes.
  3. Evan Winter — I’ve only read two of his books, but that was enough to know that I’d buy literally any book he wrote.
  4. Jonathan Dunsky — I flew through his Adam Lapid series, and he writes so beautifully that I need all books that he writes going forward.
  5. C.L. Clark — the gorgeous covers are just the tip of the iceberg, and underneath is some seriously addictive writing.
  6. Tasha Suri — in addition to her fantastic fantasy, anyone who can make Wuthering Heights interesting goes directly to my auto-buy list.
  7. Olivia Atwater — her particular brand of cozy fantasy is right up my alley.
  8. Rachel Gillig — the gothic fantasy One Dark Window was atmospheric and enchanting, and I automatically need all of the books she writes in the future.
  9. T. Kingfisher — while I typically avoid horror, the cozy horror (as I like to call it) that she writes incorporates humor and fantasy elements and I have loved all of her books.
  10. Aden Polydoros — I’ve only read one of his books so far, but that one (The City Beautiful) was enough to let me know that I need all of his books, which incorporate queer, Jewish themes.

Who are your auto-buy authors?

  1. It has to be Bill Bryson for me. Notes from A Small Island is one of my all-time favourites, as is A Walk In The Woods. I’ve enjoyed all of his books, each one has turned me into that strange person laughing to themselves on public transport!
