Top Ten Tuesdays : 18th Aug

Top 10 Tuesday is a post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week's topic is Top Ten Of Your Auto-buy Authors

  1. Brandon Sanderson - I had only heard of the Final Empire a couple of years ago. And then I read it. Since then I've bought most of Sanderson's Adult Fantasy books that have come out except for The Words of Radiance. I am willing to buy anything this man writes. And unlike other fantasy writers Sanderson cranks out books quite frequently which is a boon to fans of his writing.
  2. Neil Gaiman - He's also one of my most read authors. I just love his writing. He is also on the list of authors I would love to meet. I had the opportunity to at least see him virtually last year at Comic Con. It was one of the best days. I am still catching up with buying his books, especially Sandman, but I do buy anything that he releases.
  3. Patrick Rothfuss - I haven't even read The Name of the Wind in it's entirety and I was compelled to buy the next installment in the series. I am looking forward to his writing a lot more books.
  4. A.S. King - I have read all the books A.S. King has written, Please Ignore Vera Dietz being my favorite, and I own all of them except a couple of them. She is one of my favorite authors who cannot really be fit in to a genre in my head. 
  5. Keigo Higashino - He is one of my most recent finds. I read Devotion of Suspect X by him and it was one of the few crime thrillers that has still stayed with me. Any book of his that is translated to English I will buy.
  6. J.K Rowling - Do I even need to explain why? I am happy with her Cormoran Strike books but I will always have hope that maybe one day she will write about Harry once again
  7. Laini Taylor - The Daughter of Smoke and Bones was one of my all time favorite reads of last year. The love story of Akiva and Karou is one of the most beautifully written romances out there.
Now I am going to list authors who are no longer alive and releasing any books. But I do buy their books whenever they are available. And I would also buy their books without a doubt if they were still alive and writing.
  1. J.R.R. Tolkien - One of my favorite books is the Lord of the Rings. If there are any unpublished manuscripts out there and they find it and publish it I am buying it in an instant
  2. Douglas Adams - I had never heard of a comic Science fiction book before. But The Hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy was the most funniest books I've read so far. 
  3. Terry Pratchett - I can't believe there will no longer be any more Discworld novels. Especially the Watch books. I am still collecting his books though. So I still have quite a few of his books to read which is a plus.
