IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN.
Today’s Top Ten Tuesday features my top ten auto-buy authors.
Is this a rehash of my Lady Writer Supergroup? POSSIBLY.
Stiefvater gave me murder horses in The Scorpio Races.
She gave me Ronan Lynch in The Raven Cycle.
She gave me miracles in All the Crooked Saints.
I will go anywhere she leads.
Yes, I would LOVE to read the autobiographical comics of a bisexual feminist.
After reading Something New, I started reading any and every book either by or featuring Lucy Knisley.
Knisley made me love graphic novels.
What sort of queer-centered emotional distress do you have for me today, Patrick?
Ness’ plot concepts are SO, so creative.
I often find that high-concept plots are heavy on hype and low on…actual plot.
Patrick Ness writes intricate stories with ACTUAL EMOTIONS. REAL-LIFE EMOTIONS.
And pain. So much pain.
You did it, Laini. You won me over.
Taylor’s stunning writing keeps me enthralled.
Her books are so pretty and swoony and evocative.
I want to go to Prague.
Magic wish-fueled date night in Prague.
Booking my future honeymoon immediately.
I THROW Katie Heaney’s memoirs into my cart.
FICTION, NON-FICTION, I’LL TAKE ‘EM ALL.
Lundin only has one book out…so far.
I will likely buy her next book. And the next one.
I won’t stop.
LaCour wrote two of my favorite LGBTQIA+ books EVER.
Her presence improves any and every book.
I have had the following conversation with myself at least once:
“IS THAT A NEW MARISSA MEYER BOOK? How much is it? Don’t care, I’m buying it.”
It’s true. My friends can corroborate.
Because of Meyer, I take more chances on spacey YA adventures:
This sometimes works in my favor.
Please reread the above entry.
I EMOTE when I see a new Kristin Cashore book.
I salivated over Jane, Unlimited for MONTHS.
I stroked its spine with tears in my eyes.
I read Graceling my sophomore year of high school.
THAT’S A DECADE-LONG RELATIONSHIP, PEOPLE.
WE’RE REALLY HAPPY TOGETHER.
I am so smitten with Elizabeth Gilbert.
I turn to Liz when I want straightforward spirituality.
Her novels are VERY different from her nonfiction.
Can’t wait to read her brand new book City of Girls.
It’s set in ONE of my favorite time periods in ONE of my favorite cities.
I trust Gilbert to BRING the research.
She finds fascinating sources and perspectives and I LOOOOVE it.
Sure, Liz, I’ll read your historical fiction. No sweat.
That’s it. Those are my auto-buys.
Does anyone have a list with some scary overlap?
