Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Thoughts on Tomes. This week’s topic is auto-buy science-fiction & fantasy authors.
First, a couple of honourable mentions:
Her writing is so beautiful and magical and poetic and her ideas always so creative, sign me up. I’ve only read 3 of her books, but I definitely plan on reading all of them and whatever new she comes out with.
The only books he has out as far as I’m aware are The Kingkiller books and I don’t know whether he has any plans of putting out books once that series is completed. Having said that, if he does, I will definitely read them.
5. Cassandra Clare
She’s mostly an auto-buy for Shadowhunter books. I have read The Iron Trial and enjoyed it, but that is to date the only non Shadowhunter book of hers that I’ve read. I might read more of them in the future, but I haven’t bought every book of hers as it came out, which is why she’s number 5.
4. Sarah J. Maas
I have loved both of her series and will still automatically buy anything she comes out with, however I’ve been a little disappointed with her last couple of releases, which is why she’s lower on the list than would be expected considering how much I love particularly ACOMAF.
3. Rick Riordan
I love his books so much. I still have a lot of them to read, but they’re all on my list and his new ones are all on my list. Everything that has his name on it is on my list, really. Including the books in his new imprint thing.
2. Leigh Bardugo
I still have to catch up with the Grisha trilogy and admittedly, I didn’t love Shadow and Bone as much as I’ve loved all her other books, but… I’ve loved all her other books and she can only grow as an author. So anything that she comes out with is on my list.
3. Victoria Schwab
Honestly, she’s probably my favourite author at the moment. I have not read a single book by her that I haven’t loved and the few I still need to read, I have no doubt I will love as well.
