Auto-Buy Authors

Tuesday, 28 April 2015
Hello everyone! Today I'm writing a blog post about my auto-buy authors. If any of these authors releases a book then I will want to read it, no matter what the plot is. They're my auto-buy authors because I would automatically buy any of their new books. They're not all my favourite authors but ones I just think are really great and consistent. For example, JK Rowling is one of my favourite authors but I don't really like her adult books. I've read The Casual Vacancy and The Cuckoo's Calling but I won't buy any more of her adult books because I didn't really enjoy the first two. 

Khaled Hosseini - Oh my god, I love this man's books! They're all set in Afghanistan, a country that has gone through a lot of troubles, so the stories are normally really interesting and emotional. Khaled Hosseini was born in Afghanistan so I always wonder how much of his novels are based on his own experiences or experiences of his friends/family. I think my favourite was his second novel, A Thousand Splendid Suns, which is about two women who connect in Afghanistan. I wasn't the biggest fan of his latest novel, And The Mountains Echoed, but I would still read anything else he releases.

Markus Zusak - Markus Zusak doesn't have that many books but his most famous novel, The Book Thief, made him really famous. I've read it twice now and the second time that I read it it made me cry. But I think my favourite has to be I Am The Messenger because it was just really deep. I think he has a new book coming out soon and I cannot wait!

John Green - Hasn't everyone heard of this man by now? I've read all of his books and I had the pleasure of meeting him when he came to Glasgow in February 2012, what a great guy! His books may not be amazing works of literary creation but I still really enjoy them. I remember when The Fault In Our Stars came out John Green signed every book pre-ordered on Amazon. And that was before he got really famous. I don't think he'd be able to do that now if he released a new book.

Patrick Ness - I have so much love for this man! I've read almost all of his books, I just need to get myself a copy of The Crane Wife and I loved them all so much. More Than This was probably my favourite but A Monster Calls made me cry, in public, on the train. Patrick Ness is releasing a new book called The Rest of Us Just Live Here in August and I'm buzzing to read it!

I hope you enjoyed this blog post! Please leave me a comment and let me know what authors you love! Over the summer I really want to branch out with my reading.
