Affiliate links // I’d never heard of the phrase “auto buy author” until fairly recently and whilst yes, I had been living under a rock, it also got me thinking about my own auto-buy authors. I don’t have many, I’ll admit. But the one’s I do have hold a pretty special place in my bookish heart.
It’s it just beautiful when you love and trust an author so much that you don’t even have to THINK about buying their next book? You just do. It’s like a reflex.
I have 5 auto-buy authors that I want to share with you in today’s blog post and they’re all pretty different from each other and my reasons for them being my auto-buy authors vary.
But I adore each and every one of these authors and their books which bring so much joy into my life and my reading routine.
Some of these authors and books have gripped me so much to the point where I’ve not been able to put the book down.
They’ve made me cry… for 3 hours.
They’ve left me pondering and wondering and questioning and debating.
They’ve had me gasping out loud.
And had me recommending their damn books to literally ANYONE that will listen to me.
So here are my 5 auto-buy authors, who’s books I don’t even have to think about purchasing!
Claire Douglas is one of my favourite Thriller writers. I was blown away by the first book of hers I read, which was The Sisters and her books just seemed to get better and better. She is the Queen of mislead and suspense. And don’t even get me STARTED on her endings. If you love an ending which is going to leave you questioning everything you just read… Claire Douglas is for you.
I first read C.J Tudor’s work back when I was a book blogger an was sent a copy of her first novel, The Chalk Man, to review. This book drummed up a lot of hype. And rightly so. C.J Tudor has continued to write eerie, chilling, gripping and unique books with The Chalk Man now set to become a series on BBC! Excited? Me?
Probably a very cliché choice here but damn it, I love John Green. Have Have I grown out of The Fault in Our Stars hype? Yes, definitely. But I still love his work and am eager to pick up anything (and everything) he writes. My favourite of Green’s books has to be Looking for Alaska, closely followed by Paper Towns. But I was a big fan of his newest book, Turtles All the Way Down.
Markus Zusak is a literally genius. In my honest and humble opinion. You know that book I said made me cry for 3 hours? It was The Book Thief. I wish I was kidding when I say 3 hours. Markus is a beautiful writer. Just absolutely stunning. In fact, it’s so beautiful I literally don’t know what to say. I didn’t enjoy his latest, Bridge of Clay nowhere near as much as The Book Thief and I Am the Messenger but it was still a stunning read.
Okay granted Karen Thompson-Walker only has 2 books out but I know if and when she releases more, I will be THERE on the order button. Thompson-Walker is the author of my favourite book of ALL TIME, The Age of Miracles. I’ve read that damn book about 7 times. I read her latest, The Dreamers at the very start of 2021. And it’s also an incredible read.
I would absolutely love to hear about your auto-buy authors! Whose books don’t you even have to think about buying? Let me know in the comments!
