(TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)
This is basically a list of my favorite authors because that’s what mostly defines a favorite author of mine. I would read every single book they write no matter what it is about. I would read their grocery lists to be honest. I need a subscription to my favorite authors’ books please!!!
If you know me at all, you know that Patrick Ness is my absolute favorite author. I don’t even read summaries of his upcoming books anymore. When I hear about a new book deal, I’m already on my way to preorder it. I’m still a little scared to read his first two books because WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE THEM but I’m definitely going to read them because I’ve never been disappointed in any of his books before.
Maggie Stiefvater is definitely on the list of authors that make me read anything, even stories about things I’m sure I won’t like. For example I recently read Lament by her which I was sure of I wasn’t going to like (and I didn’t) but I just had to give it a try. Just as I’m still going to read its sequel because I just have to. The fun thing is, that Maggie gets better and better with every new book and I’m pretty sure there is not going to be a new book again that I won’t like.
Victoria Schwab doesn’t even need to be on my auto-buy list because she has the most amazing ideas for stories and when I hear about them I want to read them, no matter from which author they are. As I know this though, she obviously is on my list, because there really is no need to read a synopsis because I know I’ll love her next book.
I fell in love with Brandon Sanderson‘s books fast and hard. Within months, I bought almost anything I could get my hands on and when I look at his plans for future books it really isn’t a question if I want them or not. It helps that 99% of his books are of my go-to genre: fantasy.
Kelley Armstrong only recently proved again that she can write anything and I’ll enjoy it. I read her upcoming YA thriller, a genre I usually don’t enjoy, and I LOVED it. I started to trust her in doing this a long time ago and since then automatically got every book she published.
Laini Taylor wrote a book about angels and made me LOVE it. This pretty much says it all. Her writing style is phenomenal I would never miss the chance to read more of hers, no matter what the book is about.

Patrick Ness and Maggie Stiefvater made my list too! I haven’t read enough of the others , but for the one book I’ve read from Brandon Sanderson I’d say he probably deserves to be on my list too.

And you can’t forget Laini’s pink hair. Of course we will auto-buy an author with lovely pink hair!
Haha, yes! Good point!
Anne @ Lovely Literature
I don’t have any Brandon Sanderson books and I count it as one of my biggest failings. :P And I only own one of Laini Taylor’s books but I do want to buy more! Especially to complete the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series on my shelf.
haha, GET ON IT ANNE! READ THEM ALL!!! ;D
Hahaha, I completely agree about Laini Taylor – the fact that her books are about angels but don’t make me roll my eyes every 5 seconds is quite the accomplishment.
Have you read Shiver/Linger/Forever? I didn’t make it through the first one. =/
I did read them and I actually loved them back then BUT they were some of my very first YA reads when everything was so new and shiny that I liked almost everything haha. I want to reread and see if I still like it.
I’m really curious to know what you’ll think if you do re-read the series. I want to love everything Maggie Stiefvater writes, but as you said, she gets better with each book, so maybe it’s okay if I can’t. Also, I’m not a fan of werewolves, so that doesn’t help.
Aj @ Read All The Things!
Great list. Victoria Schwab made my list too. I’m so excited for the ADSOM sequel.
Cynthia @ Bingeing On Books
Awesome list! I have actually never read a Patrick Ness book. Crazy! I plan on rectifying that soon. Maggie Stiefvater is awesome!
