Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly list of 10 (or 2 or 5) of whatever this week’s prompt is from That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s list on Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl is auto buy authors. There are a few authors that I auto buy everything they release, but there are some authors that I only auto buy from a particular series they write. I think saying I auto buy everything a particular author writes is hard since so many of them are venturing outside the genres I know them for and I am just not ready to broaden my horizons. That sounds terrible, but I’m still fully stuck in my PNR, UF world. I can only think of three authors that I’ve actually gone out of my comfort zone and read their series that are outside of my genres.
Gena Showalter was one of the authors I actually followed out and read her contemporary series. She has written quite a few Young Adult and those I haven’t picked up. I will auto buy anything she releases in the Lords of the Underworld, Gods of War or Original Heartbreakers series.
Kresley Cole is another author I’ve actually jumped out and read her contemporary. I follow her Immortals After Dark and Game Maker series. I haven’t picked up her Young Adult series either.
J.R. Ward had written many series that I’ve picked up automatically just because her name is on them. I’ve picked up the Black Dagger Brotherhood, Black Dagger Legacy, Bourbon Kings and her Firefighters series. I haven’t tried any of her previous books written under her Jessica Bird name.
I’ve read Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed series for a long time and each installment in that series is an auto buy. I have not tried any of her contemporary.
Dannika Dark is a huge favorite for me right now. I think I’ve read everything of hers unless she has put out something under a different name. The audio to her Mageri, Seven and Crossbreed series is amazing and I’ve grabbed each one as it’s been released. I’m also trying to collect the paperback’s as the covers have been designed by the author and I love them.
Nalini Singh is another author that I will grab anything PNR she writes. She is coming out with a thriller. I’m not sure if I’m going to pick it up, but I will grab everything Psy-Changeling, Psy-Changeling Trinity or Guild Hunter.
I’m a late comer to Christine Feehan’s books, so there are SO many that I need to read. I fell in love with her Sisters of the Heart series and continued on into the Torpedo Ink series. The Shadow series is also one I picked up. Both of these series are auto buys. I need to pick up her Dark series, but there are SO many, I don’t know if I will be able to get caught up.
Ilona Andrew writes some great stories. I follow a couple of their series and if anything is released in those series I will definitely pick up. Unfortunately the Kate Daniels series has ended. I was sad to see it go, but am excited by the way it was left and the possible series that could spin off from it. I will definitely pick up every one that does. I also love their Hidden Legacy series. I read their Edge books which I enjoyed.
I’ve truly enjoyed the Charley Davidson series and Darynda Jones’ releases in that series were auto buys. That series has ended now, and it will be awhile before she starts writing the spin off of that. Darynda is also reaching out and trying new genres. I’m unsure of whether I will pick that up or not.
I got swept up with Donna Grant’s Dark King series. I pick them up with every release as well as the Reaper books. I haven’t gotten to them all yet, but I’ve grabbed them. I really want to go back and read all the series leading up to the Dark Kings books. Now I’ve stuck to her PNR and haven’t tried her contemporary.
Those are my top ten. Have to keep in mind that my “auto buy” consists of the author’s PNR or UF series. I haven’t been adventurous and tried much outside of those genres.
