Top Ten Tuesday: Autobuy

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's edition is about authors we would put on our auto-buy lists.  For me, I think I have waaaayyy too many to list but I will break it down with 5 from the adult genre and 5 from the YA genre.  Here is my list:



                        JK Rowling: Is there really a need to explain this?  And bonus she now counts for both
                         adult, middle grade and YA

                         Sarah Ockler: Simply put, she is one of my favourite YA contemporary writers.  Twenty
                         Boy Summer might have destroyed me 



Jodi Picoult: This woman knows how to write.  If you don't believe me I dare you to pick one of her books and get through it without bawling.

Lauren Oliver: Oh, Lauren, I am anxiously awaiting the final installment to the Delirium trilogy.



Marian Keyes: This adult contemporary writer doesn't get nearly the amount of credit she deserves.  Her books are witty and I eat them up like candy.

Marissa Meyer: I have LOVED Cinder and Scarlet and I can't wait for more from this YA writer.  I am absolutely excited that I get to meet her in a week and half!!!
   


Lisa Genova: She writes the most interesting stories.  Her stories usually have some sort of neurological aspect to them and they are both fascinating and scary at the same time.

Gayle Forman: Oh man, this woman knows how to suck you in!  I just finished Just One Day and can't wait for Just One Year.

Sophie Kinsella: This author writes the most hilarious books.  I am more fond of her stand alones as opposed to her Shopaholic series but I will read anything she writes.

Kelley Armstrong: Another adult and YA author.  Her words just suck me in and keep me entertained the whole way through.

Which authors would you automatically buy novels from?
