Today is a Top Ten Tuesday Rewind day! Today I'm tackling a list that I immediately regretted not posting as soon as I saw it on other people's blogs. Since I seem to be especially good at completing Top Ten Tuesday lists that revolve around buying books, I thought it was appropriate that I talk about all of the books I plan on buying in the future. I would also talk about the Beauty and the Beast sized library I plan on obtaining so I have a place to keep all of these books, but I'm still working out the details on that one.
At any rate, I've decided to include and link up to the author's upcoming book in each of these cases. If I don't know when his or her next book will be out then the link will lead you to the most recent release.
1.) Victoria Schwab
The Near Witch. Her books are always haunting yet gorgeous.
2.) John Green
3.) Catherynne M. Valente
It took a chapter or two, but when I read Valente's The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In A Ship Of Her Own Making, I fell head over heels in love, and I enjoyed The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led The Revels There even more. Although Catherynne has some adult books out that I don't own, I hope to acquire them soon. Both the world and the writing in the Fairyland series is just totally magical.
4.) Stephanie Perkins
5.) Diana Peterfreund
I admit, even though I like all of Diana's books, some of them have their weird moments for me (Killer Unicorns series, I am looking at you). However, their concepts are always so brilliant and her writing is lovely.
6.) Maggie Stiefvater
7.) Neil Gaiman
I shouldn't have to explain this one. I mean, it's Neil Gaiman. COME ON. However, I will, because I like you guys. When I read Stardust, it basically felt like the ultimate fairy tale/fantasy for me. It's everything I want a fairy tale to be. Well done, Neil.
8.) Tamora Pierce
9.) Katja Millay
It may seem weird that I am adding Katja to my autobuy list when I've only read one book by her, but her writing is simply stunning.
10.) Patrick Rothfuss
Gorgeous writing and brilliant storytelling? If Patrick Rothfuss ever actually finishes writing The Doors of Stone I'll definitely buy it.
There you have it. A small sample of the books that will inevitably be added to my collection. Which authors are on your auto-buy lists?
