Top Ten Authors That I'd Put On My Auto-Buy List (basically an auto-buy list is no questions asked..you love this author so much that no matter what they wrote next you'd buy regardless of genre or subject matter)
I don't buy a lot of books, so this is easy to make. For more Top Ten Lists today, head to The Broke and the Bookish.
1. Kate Atkinson - Jackson Brodie mysteries, plus her stand-alone books. She has new one coming out this spring with a lot of buzz
2. Andrea Camelleri - Inspector Montalbano of Sicily I cannot resist
3. Lisa Lutz - The Spellman Files are hilarious, and her co-authored book, Heads You Lose made me laugh. A lot.
4. Tracey Chevalier - Historical fiction from many perspectives, I still have a few to read, but I haven't found one yet that I havent' enjoyed.
5. Deon Meyer - South African mysteries, just excellent! If you like thrilling police stories, you must try him.
6. Bernice Morgan - Newfoundland author extraordinaire. She has only written a few books (Random Passage, Waiting for Time, Cloud of Bone) are fabulous
7. Sarah Waters - British author who has explored the Victorian age (Fignersmith, Affinity, Tipping the Velvet) and the World War 2 era (The Little Stranger, The Night Watch)
8. Marcus Zusak - I'd read his grocery list
9. John Green - He's got some real winners in his backlist, and is still very young. I expect to be able to read his books for many years to come.
10. Brian Selznick - His two books, Wonderstruck and The Invention of Hugo Cabret, are two of the most imaginative and spectacular books I've every read. He has invented his own genre of book.
