For me these are authors that I will read any book they put out, if I think I will like it or not and without reading the summary of the book, because I trust them to write amazing books. Many of these authors are also insta-buy authors as well meaning I would buy their books without knowing anything about their books because, again, I trust them to write good books that I will love. Insta-buy authors are rare because I don’t like to buy books unless I know I will love them, this making this list an exclusive list. Some of the authors of my favourite books are not even on this list.
Tamora Pierce – Of the roughly 30 (THIRTY!!!!) books she has written I have only mildly disliked 2 of them. That is an impressive score card and her next book coming out sounds SO GOOD.
Maria V Snyder – A newcomer to the List and one that is a bit of a surprise for me that she became so trusted so quick.
Kristen Britain and Kristin Cashore – Both only have one series out each but that series from each of them is amazing. Britain is still writing her Green Rider series and I can’t wait to continue it. After 5 books the series is not lacking or slowing down at all. Cashore has finished her Graceling series after 3 books, of which I loved the first two and need to re-read the third since I didn’t like it the first time but want to give it another try. Despite this I am really curious to see what, if anything she puts out next.
Honourable mentions (close but not quite there):
Sarah J Maas – Here Throne of Glass series is epic and I need to continue it, however I have heard mixed things of her Court of Thorns and Roses series and will need to read it and form opinions before I can add her to the List.
Sherwood Smith – Her Sartorias-deles books are either love them or really dislike them so she likely will not even land a permanent spot on this list. However her books that I love are so complex, original and interesting that I still check out (almost) every book she writes in this verse. Though I think I’ve gotten a bit behind in some of them since her less well-known books are harder to find, especially in libraries.
Eoin Colfer – He was on the List but a recent book of his that I read took him off the list since it was not up to the standards of awesome and funny that I have come to expect from him.
