Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. If you love books and making lists, this is the meme for you! This week’s topic is:
We all have our favourite authors, who we eagerly lap up every new release of or diligently hunt down their whole back-catalogue of books. With a slight twist, here are ten of the authors (listed alphabetically) that I either auto-buy or auto-request on NetGalley:
- M. C. Beaton – Being a fan of Beaton’s long-standing, cosy-crime series, Agatha Raisin, I am always on the look out for later books, so I continue reading the series in order.
- Linda Gillard – As one of my favourite authors, I want to read all of Gillard’s novels: new and old! Most recently, I read Cauldstane and I have The Trysting Tree lined-up to hopefully read soon.
- Joanne M. Harris – After loving The Gospel of Loki, Harris has become one of my auto-request authors. I just read more about Loki in Runemarks. and I have The Testament of Loki lined-up to read too.
- Susanna Kearsley – As one of my favourite authors, I want to read all of Kearsley novels: new and old! Recently, I read her newest novel, Bellewether and I have her older novel, The Firebird lined-up to read next.
- Laurie R. King – Being a fan of King’s nostalgic Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes mystery series, I am always on the look out for later books, so I continue reading the series in order.
- Karen Maitland – Since being bewitched by Maitland’s writing in The Raven’s Head, I have requested more and added to my Amazon wish-list. Recently I read A Gathering of Ghosts.
- Daphne du Maurier – As one of my favourite authors, I want to read all of du Maurier’s novels! Last year, I read The House on the Strand and Frenchmen’s Creek. Now I have The Loving Spirit lined-up to read next.
- Anne O’Brien – As one of my go-to authors for my historical fix, I eagerly request every one of O’Brien’s new novels. Last I read was The Shadow Queen and I have three of her books on my Kindle to look forward too.
- Terry Pratchett – Being a big fan of Pratchett’s fantastical Discworld series, I am always on the look out for books either my dad or I don’t already have to complete our collection and keep us reading!
- Alison Weir – As another of my go-to authors for my historical fix, I eagerly buy/request every one of Weir’s new books, especially those in her brilliant Six Tudor Queens series.
