Auto-Buy Authors

I like books. I like owning physical books, but because my wallet hates me when I splurge on books, I try to be very selective of which books I buy. But when certain authors release a new book, I’m like:

I have no self-control. I hope I’m not the only one who does this.

Sarah J. Maas

Raise of hands, who is surprised that Sarah J. Maas is on this list? No one? Yeah, didn’t think so.

The majority of my posts on my blog mention her or any of her books at least once. That’s how much I like her writing. All her books so far are in the fantasy genre, and they’re fast-paced and action-packed. There are a few people I know who didn’t like the Throne of Glass series but loved the A Court of Thorns and Roses series, so if you give her first series a try and don’t like it, I recommend giving ACOTAR a try.

Cassandra Clare

I will always buy the books by the mastermind behind the Shadowhunter world. I don’t know what inspired her to write The Mortal Instruments, but I’m so glad she did. I’m also super happy she decided to write a sequel series staring the children Shadowhunters (who are now teens) so we get to see what exactly happens after the war in the first series.

Rainbow Rowell

I wasn’t the biggest fan of Eleanor and Park (I didn’t hate it but I didn’t love it like everyone else), but I fell in love with Fangirl, one of her other books. Since then, I’ve been keeping an eye on her new releases, and I’m super excited for her release of Pumpkinheads, which is expected to come out sometime in 2019.

Leigh Bardugo

A long time ago, I read the first book of Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha trilogy. It wasn’t bad, but it didn’t inspire me to read the rest of the series. Then she released Six of Crows and I went gaga for it. It’s set in the same world but follows a whole new set of characters. I love anything that reminds of Sherlock Holmes, and Kaz resembles the detective because they’re both masterminds at schemes.

Marie Lu

After falling in love with her Legend trilogy, I’ve make sure to check out her other books. Most of her books are in the futuristic, fantasy/sci-fi genre. A common theme among her different books are child/teen prodigies. What I like about Marie Lu’s writing is that she tries to incorporate different ethnicities in her stories.

Marissa Meyer

How could I not love her Lunar Chronicles? The world, the characters, and the retellings were all so entertaining. Her style of writing is light, fun, and adventurous. What’s not to like?

Rick Riordan

Both my brother and I are fans of his work, so I always make sure to get his newest releases so we can both read them.

    Rainbow Rowell is definitely one of mine. John Green and Stephanie Perkins too. Oh and Jenny Han … I have a lot of them, I guess!

    I totally agree with all the authors you listed except for Rainbow Rowell and Cassandra Clare (only because I haven’t read any of their books yet!). Great list! ❤️

      Rainbow Rowell writes such cute stories while Cassandra Clare in more in the fantasy and romance genre. I hope you like them if you ever decide to read one of their books! 😊

      Not really a horror fan (because I’m such a scaredy cat) but Stephen King’s works are amazing! I can understand why he would be an auto-buy 😄

        Awww 🤗. I love that books are not scary the same way movies tend to. They won’t make you jump out of your seat and suffer anxiety attacks…

    Ooh yep, Cassandra Clare gets me every time – and if I don’t buy them, they are straight on the library reserve list! I’ve only read Fangirl and Carry On by Rainbow Rowell, but love them so would love to read more of her stuff. And I’m really looking forward to getting into Sarah J Maas – just haven’t got around to it yet, bad me! Loved this list.
