In this week’s topic, let’s talk about my auto-buy Scifi and Fantasy Authors.
Firstly, let’s start with a caveat:
I tend not to auto-buy much these days. 🙂 I am quite a moody reader and like to choose / pick books depending on the mood I am currently experiencing.
With that said, there are a few fantasy writers, whose books I would gladly auto-buy.
Oh Leigh, her books really speak to me.
I enjoy both her skilled writing as well as her deep understanding of human nature.
She creates complex characters and certainly knows how to spin a highly addictive story whilst building wonderful worlds.
I also appreciate her Russian spin on most of her books even though I also loved her take on Wonderwoman.
Her books are my auto-buy books without a shadow of a doubt.
I discovered her books during the end of last year and promptly declared her one of my favourite authors.
Her writing is poetic and I need more of it. 😊
Her books are inspired by Russian folklore and have a medieval feel to them.
I enjoy her story telling, world building and that her focus is on the plot rather than romance.
Sarah J Maas
Fast-paced stories, many complex, not entirely likable characters and lots of humour = I am a fan of this author.
One second, I am laughing out loud whilst reading some banter between characters and the next one I am biting my nails as suspense is building up.
After I finished The Cruel Prince, I started reading the Curse Workers series and found another favourite author.
Again, her characters are complex, not entirely likeable and I enjoy her writing style as well as her craftily built worlds full of scheming and politics.
I am aware that those are four, not five authors.
As this topic relates to fantasy and sci-fi, that’s it my friends.
There are many other fantasy writers, whose books I enjoy, but equally, whose books I would never auto-buy.
I would gladly auto-buy anything from Brené Brown but that’s non-fiction.
After discovering Liane Moriarty last month, I would also consider buying anything from her but that’s fiction.
Tolkien or Pratchett no longer write so I am sticking with my list of four my friends.
What about you?
Are you a loyal fan and auto-buy or do you prefer to do a bit of research first?
And if you do auto-buy, who is your favourite author?
