So I’m a little late to the party. I just found the Top Ten Tuesday list-along at The Broke and the Bookish last night. I could have waited till the next list went up, but I love this week’s – Top Ten Auto Buy Authors. I have my favorites and really wanted to share them. So in no particular order here they are –
I love The Black Dagger Brotherhood! Swoon. My husband refers to this as my “vampire porn” and I accept that. I also have all of The Fallen Angels series and have the new Black Dagger Legacy on my calendar to buy later this year. I have not yet read her new Bourbon Kings , but it’s on my list.
I have all of her Immortals After Dark series and all of her Arcana Chronicles series. I really enjoy that she can go seamlessly from adult to YA and have a true clear voice in each. Plus Nix rocks.
Angels of the Dark, Otherworld Assassins, Lords of the Underworld, Alien Huntress and its YA books, Intertwined series, Tales of an Extraordinary Girl and Atlantis. I have them all, ’nuff said.
I started reading Garwood in high school. The first book of hers I remember reading is The Lion’s Lady which came out in March 1991. These are definite comfort books for me and I have all of her historical romances and her contemporary novels.
I happened upon Vincent’s first novel Stray while waiting to pick up a prescription. I was wondering the drug store and went to check out their meager offerings and there it was. That book started a love for Vincent. Basically, anything she writes, I will read.
I started with her Vampire Academy series borrowed from a friend. When that friend moved I bought the previously published ones and kept buying the new releases. I then moved to her adult series Dark Swan and Georgia Kincaid, then back to YA for the Bloodlines series and now I’m onto Age of X.
The Otherworld series and its first book Bitten was my first foray into the Paranormal/Urban Fantasy genera. I have never looked back and even buy her anthologies.
So when I picked up a clearance copy of Acheron at Border’s I did not know what I was getting into. After reading it and being sortof confused but really book high, I looked it up and discovered it was number 14 in a series. So what is a good book addict to do? The logical answer is of course buy all 13 before it and all 10 (so far) after it.
From the Morganville Vampires to the Weather Warden series Caine is another on this list that can do equal justice to adult and YA. Her new book Ink and Bone is in my TBR pile.
And last but not least number 10 goes to my Chick Lit favs –
Sophie Kinsella What all of these ladies have in common is that their books make me happy. I may not love all of their works equally (for example I love all of Kinsella’s Shopaholic series but don’t really care for her YA novel Finding Audrey) but they all as a rule make me glad I have read them. Are some of them formulaic? Yup, but in this case that is not a bad thing because sometimes knowing a book will end on a happy note with the characters having found their HEA is just what I need. And in those cases I can count on these ladies to deliver.
Go check out the rest of Top Ten Tuesday at The Broke and the Bookish.
