Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because The Broke and Bookish are particularly fond of lists (as are we!). Each week a new Top Ten list topic is given and bloggers can participate.
Today’s Topic: Our Auto-Buy Authors
We run out and buy (or preorder) all the books for these authors!
In no particular order (and please excuse my brevity—my arm is in a cast). I have many more than five auto-buy authors, by the way. 🙂
1. Ruta Sepetys
Everything this woman touches is gold.
2. John Green
His characters stick make an imprint on my heart.
3. Matt de la Peña
He id sn unbelievable storyteller.
4. Kekla Magoon
She brings me right into the setting.
5. Sarah Dessen
Every book she’s written has made me feel warm and fuzzy.
1. John Green
He hasn’t written a book I haven’t loved yet!
2. Eliot Schrefer
I loved Endangered and Threatened, and I am waiting very impatiently for the third book of the Ape Quartet.
(Though I haven’t read his earlier novels–I probably should!)
3. Kazu Kibuishi
His books are loved by myself and my students. When I buy one, I have to read it that night because there is already a waiting list for it at school.
4. Raina Telgemeier
Same as Kazu. A favorite of all!
5. Ginny Rorby
I love all of her books and am always waiting to see what she comes up with next. Her books always make me cheer and cry.
Which authors’ books do you automatically buy?

So, so many good authors writing today! I choose Elizabeth Wein, Cynthia Lord, Rebecca Stead, Maggie Stiefvater, Pam Munoz Ryan. . . Jason Reynolds & Eliot Schrefer might be up there now, too!
Great lists, as always! I haven’t read all of these, but John Green, Ruta Sepetys (particular favorite!), Raina Telgemeier, and Eliot Schrefer are all faves of mine too!
