My Auto-Buy Authors

Auto-Buy Authors.png

I have been thinking about auto-buy authors lately and I have come to realize that I do not have very many! I don’t even have any auto-buy YA authors! I think that is because I am more picky when it comes to YA and I do more research before I buy a book.  When it comes to YA the story and subject matter is more important to me than the author! Still, it is very rare that I will read every book that an author has written. In fact I can only think of three authors where this is the case! Auto-buy authors is the monthly recommendations Goodreads group’s topic for July which worked out perfectly since I already had this post saved as a draft! 

Mitch Albom


I devour his books! I love each and every one of his novels. They are always inspirational, thought-provoking and insightful. If I had to recommend only one it would be The Five People You Meet In Heaven.

Lisa Genova


Lisa Genova is a fantastic author.  I am always interested in the topics that she addresses in her novels.  Each of her novels centers around different diseases and disorders- the majority of them being neurological.  I always feel like I come out of reading her novels with a lot more knowledge and compassionate.

Khaled Hosseini

When I read a Khaled Hosseini novel I know that I am going to need a box of tissues ready.  He is such a vivid writer and I always feel so connected to his characters.


I wanted to mention a few authors that have potential to be auto buy authors for me!

Angie Thomas

32075671 (1)

The Hate U Give is Angie Thomas’ debut novel- and if her next book is even half as good as this one was then she will instantly be added to my auto-buy list! I was blown away by her debut and I can not wait to see what she comes out with next.

Pierce Brown

I have only read Red Rising but I was blown away by it! I have been told that the series only gets better! If that is the case I am sure I will be suffering along with many others waiting for his new series, Iron Gold, to be released in 2018!

Sylvain Neuvel


Yes I am talking about the Themis Files once again! I can not wait to see how this series plays out! I am truly intrigued to see what else Sylvain Neuvel comes up with! I have no doubt in my mind that he will become an auto-buy author for me.

  1. Great post! I still need to read The Kite Runner and Pierce Brown and sleeping giants.. I’m glad they are on your favorite list 😊

  2. Hi! I love this post! I don’t have any auto-buy authors at the moment, though if a book comes out by an author I like, I will be highly inclined to buy it. I also love Mitch Albom’s books – the 5 people you meet is the first one I read. I love Still Alice as well. Currently reading THUG and it is amazing so far 🙂

  3. VERY interested in Themis Files! I used to be a Albom fan, never at auto-buy status, but a fan. How can you not appreciate all the efforts the man makes for his community? The last of his I read was The First Phone Call From Heaven, and I found myself disappointed. Can’t go wrong with Pierce Brown so far!

  4. Pierce Brown is an auto-buy author for me as well. I’ve read the first two books in the Red Rising trilogy but I’ve yet to read the third one yet. I loved both books though and plan on finishing the series eventually haha.

  5. I think Pierce Brown is on my auto-buy list. It’s hard to judge with only one series, but I know for sure that it’s an auto-buy series so it’s very likely the author. 🙂

    Nice list.
