Discussion: Insta-Buy Authors

March 16, 2015     erinbook     Discussion, Feature

Do you have any authors that You’ll instantly buy any book they come out with? I definitely do. Most of the time it doesn’t matter what the book is about, I’ll want it for my collection. Why? There are usually two or three reasons.

A) Am I completely obsessed with their writing style?

B) Do I love their character development?

C) Have they shown that they are REALLY good at world building and plot development?

D) Do I know the author well? (Read all of their books, met them in person, talked extensively on twitter, etc)

If three or more of the questions can be answered YES then an author will usually make my insta-buy list.

So who is on that list? Some I think you’ll be able to guess, but a few may surprise you.

Rick Riordan

Ann Aguirre

JK Rowling (DUH!)
Rosamund Hodge
Leigh Bardugo
Cassandra Clare
Robin LaFevers
Sarah J. Maas


And then there are some newer additions to the list….
Mindy McGinnis
Alex London
Natalie D. Richards
Eric Smith
Brandon Sanderson
Kristin Cashore
Jody Casella

  1. I feel this way about Rick Riordan, Christopher Paolini, and Marissa Meyer. There are a few others on my list, but it’s about as long as yours so I won’t bore you. 🙂
