Welcome back to Top 5 Wednesday. This is a meme started in November of 2013 and is still going strong! If you’re interested in being a part of it please see the group on Goodreads.
This week’s topic is Auto-Buy Science Fiction/Fantasy Authors
When these authors put out a new book then I will buy it no questions asked.
There are quite a few who would qualify for this category. I’ve tried to nail it down, but there will definitely be a long list of honorable mentions at the end.
Titles: Mistborn, Elantris, The Stormlight Archive, etc…
I mean … not only is he an auto-buy but I will always pre-order a signed copy. Is it any wonder?
Titles: The Realm of the Elderlings series, Soldier Son Trilogy
I will buy anything she writes, sight unseen, pre-ordered, signed with a place of honor on my shelf. Need I say more?
Titles: Muirwood, Harbinger, Kingfountain
This is a completely new auto-buy author for me. I just discovered his books late last year and I’ve sped my way through them. Bring it on. I’m ready for more!
Titles: The Bear and the Nightingale, The Girl in the Tower
I’m completely hooked. Take my money, I must have more!
Titles: Maresi, Naondel
This is also a recent find. I’ve ready Maresi twice so far and loved it. Naondel built on the wonderful premise and next year (so far away!) the third book in the series will come out. It already has a place on my shelf.
This was a really hard one to nail down for me. There are so many other fantasy authors who are on my list of auto-buy, but I can only choose 5 for the list. Here are my honorable mentions…
C.N. Holmberg – Magic Bitter, Magic Sweet, Paper Magician series, The Fifth Doll
Patrick Rothfuss – The Kingkiller Chronicle
Naomi Novik – Uprooted, Temeraire
George R. R. Martin – Game of Thrones
