2. Matt Haig – I know you are all shocked.
3. Maggie Stiefvater – Oh, man. I’m just a bag full of surprises today.
4. Stephanie Perkins – Wuuuuut?
5. Jennifer E. Smith – No way!


1. Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead) – aka 1 of the 2 authors who got me into comics.
2. Brian K. Vaughan (Saga) – aka the other author who got me into comic.

  1. I have officially added all of Jennifer E. Smith’s books to my TBR. I have to read another one of her books before I consider her an auto-buy though. My only real auto-buy author is Leigh Bardugo, which I’m sure you are aware of how much I adore her haha. The Rose and The Dagger will determine if Renee ends up being an auto-buy for me I think, LOVE the Wrath & The Dawn

  2. I haven’t read everyone on your list, but I’m so right there with you on Brian K. Vaughn! Saga was amazing and I am going to be working my way through his backlist. Also, J.K. Rowling. I haven’t read anything since HP yet, but I will still buy it all just to support her. And Ian Rankin! I bought Knots and Crosses like…. 5 years ago… and still haven’t read it. Perhaps I should get on that seeing as he’s the first name on your list. XD

  3. This is a great list. Renee Ahdieh actually has an adult book out as well as The Wrath and the Dawn. I can’t remember the name of it off the top of my head but I know that it exists.
    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Perkins, Stiefvater (bag of surprises Hahahaha), Schwab, Ilona Andrews, Tana French, Yoon (because reasons), Gabaldon, and I think there’s more but my brain isn’t producing words. I’ll think of them an hour from now and text you lol. Great post.

  5. Love your list. Still some authors I need to read on there. J.K. Rowling would definitely be on my auto reads list, although I haven’t read her Robert Galbraith stuff yet either.
