My top ten artist on my auto buy list. An auto-buy list being a list of authors that you would buy a book from simply because of the author no matter the topic or genre. I can definitely thing of some names for this but I hope I can come up with ten. Many will be easy to guess I think 🙂
1. Stephenie Meyer – let’s just get this one out of the way 🙂
3. Terry Goodkind – Amazing. That’s all 🙂
4. J.K. Rowling – Despite The Casual Vacancy, I really love the way she writes and the characters she creates.
5. Christopher Paolini – As much as the end of Inheritance drove me insane, I love his books and would read anything he’s written.
6. Neil Gaiman – His stuff is amazing. I would start with Neverwhere or Stardust.
7. Rachel Joyce – She’s only got one book out. On the basis of her first book, I’ll buy everything else she writes… Harold Fry is NOT my kind of book but it was amazing.
8. Elizabeth Kostova – Read her second book, The Swan Thieves and you’ll see why she made this list.
9. Arthur Golden – As far as I know, he’s only written one book but that book was amazing. Might not be for everyone though.
10. Thomas Harris – This one is not for everyone. Thomas Harris created Hannibal Lecter. I really enjoy physiological thriller like these books. Monsters don’t scare me. When I am in the mood for a good scare though, these books are some of my go to favorites. Again, this not for everyone. If you don’t handle gore well, don’t pick up this author.
