Hello, there; happy new week and almost-Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday July 16 is all about author love. (Which I am all about.)
That Artsy Reader Girl | July 16: Auto-Buy Authors
Sure bloggers, reviewers or (booktube) influencers may have an impact on readers and introducing them to new reads. However, it’s authors who deserve all the kudos. Without their creative imaginations, we wouldn’t have what we love and know as stories
Without them, we couldn’t step through a mysterious door into an icy world of wonderment; or we wouldn’t have the chance to hold a saber and fight off creatures trying to invade a kingdom. For some of us, maybe we wouldn’t be able to “see” Italy while travelling with a best friend, or we might not experience the adventures of four best friends as they prepare to spend their first summer apart.
I definitely have an auto-buy (must-buy-forever-and-always) list of authors, but since I will be sharing some of them in a video later (next month??), I thought instead I’d do something a tiny bit different. Today I’m sharing a list of five authors I haven’t read or have only read one book by, but own multiple books by. (Not sure this is wise when it comes to the wallet, but it’s fun.)
HERE WE GO!
5 Auto-Buy Authors | Top Ten Tuesday July 16
(Disclosure: this post does contain affiliate links; if you buy anything through these links, I may receive a small percentage of the sale at no extra cost to you. Read the disclosure page for details.)
1: Ally Carter | I collected so many of Ally’s Gallagher Girls books (undoubtedly her more popular) before reading anything by her. I finally read All Fall Down. It’s tons of fun, so I’m curious to read more by her. On Goodreads
2: Kiera Cass | These books are my “guilty pleasure” reads. Unbelievably, I’ve only read books one and two – and maybe a novella or two…?? *draws a blank* Either way, I’m still hyped to read more of these and cannot wait to read whatever the mysterious upcoming novel by this author might be. On Goodreads
3: Irene Hannon | Once, I used to auto-buy all of Irene’s books. I still own many, have read a few, and am now very far behind on reading her more current publications. One I have read is Vanished. On Goodreads
4: Morgan Matson | I’ve only ever read ‘Amy & Roger’ by Morgan, but own all of (or most of) her releases. Started buying them prior to reading anything by her, and since they a: seemed liked my kind of reads, and b: were always hyped, I caved. Do you have a favorite by Morgan? I’m thinking I’ll read Second Chance Summer or Save the Date next on my Morgan Matson list. On Goodreads
BOOK REVIEW | The Selection by Kiera Cass – A Romantic YA Dystopian
5: Beth K. Vogt | Why I haven’t read more by her, I don’t know! One I read was excellent, while another wasn’t my favorite (though not because it’s not well written), and I feel like Crazy Little Thing Called Love would be so much fun. On Goodreads

Comment all the thoughts down below! Who is on your auto-buy list? Why are they; do they consistently surprise you or are their novels constant favorites? Is your auto-buy list “hype” induced? If you joined Top Ten Tuesday – or have a blog, please introduce yourself below. I’d be glad to visit your bookish spaces, too.
