Top Ten Tuesday: My Auto Check-Outs
August 18, 2015
Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish in which they select a topic every week, and the rest of us get to make Top Ten lists based on that topic. This week’s topic: Top Ten Of Your Auto-buy Authors (no matter the genre or what it’s about…you’ll buy it from these authors!). If you follow this blog regularly, you know that I don’t like to spend money on books, and I make use of my library whenever possible. Therefore, I’ve altered my topic to Auto-Checkout Authors. Here’s who I can’t wait to read (click on their name to be taken to their professional website):
Garth Stein – Ever since I’ve read Racing in the Rain, I’ve made sure to catch up on all of Stein’s work, and I definitely catch his new releases. Although his most recent A Sudden Light wasn’t my favorite, he will still be a pre-release hold at the library for me!
Jennifer Niven – Even though Niven is a new discovery for me with All the Bright Places (my so-far favorite read of 2015), I plan to catch up on my backlist for her, and I will definitely be checking out any new releases that I can.
Liza Palmer – I am soooooooo glad that I won a contest for Palmer’s most recent release for Girl Before a Mirror, which then led me to Nowhere But Home. I’m not sure I would have discovered her otherwise. I absolutely adore Palmer’s writing style, characters, and setting, and I look forward to reading more of her work.
Suanne Laqueur – Suanne is also new to me this year, and I came across her work through another contest win (I’ve gotten so lucky on winning entries). I loved The Man I Love, and I was so excited to get a review copy of Give Me Your Answer True. Her writing is exquisite, and you don’t want to miss out on her powerful novels.
Khaled Hosseini – I have been so moved by the stories in all three of his novels, and I can’t imagine myself getting tired of what he produces. His most recent And the Mountains Echoed was not my favorite work, but I still enjoyed it.
Renee Rosen – If you are a regular follower of this blog, you know how much I adore Rosen, both her writing and her as a person. Not only will I read anything she writes, but I will also seek out any book event in the area that I can find. She is a master at taking her thorough research of a time period and blending it seamlessly into an engrossing storyline. I can’t wait for the release of White Collar Girl this fall. In the meantime, make sure you check out Dollface and What the Lady Wants.
Gillian Flynn – Another master of suspense that I look forward to reading. It’s been awhile since I’ve read something by her, and I need to get a fix soon!
