Super Six Sunday: Six Authors on my Auto-Buy List

So this is my first week participating in Super Six Sunday, and I actually can't come up with six items for my list! I'm pretty picky with authors, and there aren't many whose books I'll buy before reading them (especially not at full price...!). But here are four that I'll pretty much pick up whatever they're selling.

1. Lois McMaster Bujold

Although I wouldn't describe my reading taste as heavily sci-fi, my favorite author is a scifi/fantasy author Lois McMaster Bujold. I have read everything she's ever written, and I will continue to do so. Until my dying day.

2. Cassandra Clare

I'm not entirely sure where this comes from, I'm not gonna lie. I don't read Cassandra Clare's stuff and think, "Wow, this is the best written book ever!" But I can always count on her stuff to get me out of a reading slump, and I LOVE her wit. So I'll go with that. I'm a sucker for witty repartee.

3. Jill Mansell

Speaking of getting out of a reading slump, Jill Mansell is my go-to for that. Normally I would criticize someone severely for this, but I LOVE that her books are pretty much all the same. Always a spunky main character, hunky main man, supportive best friend who has a side romance of her own, and a parent-age couple who finds love late in life, one of whom is usually famous. I LOVE THEM. I actively try not to read too many all at once, because I want to savor them. True story.

4. Sheila A. Nielson

I know her!! Back when I used to work at a library, I was friends with a children's librarian who kept getting asked about mermaid books. She found that there just weren't enough, so she wrote one! Sheila, when is your next book coming out?? I WILL buy it.

Just to make it to six, I'll throw out a couple of bonus authors:

Bonus 1: Jane Austen

I've read them all. (Well, all six that are "cannon," as it were. I'm not a true fanatic until I've read the lesser-known works, such as Lady Susan and Sanditon. I know this. Let's move on.) You can get me to read or watch pretty much anything if you throw in that it's based on Jane Austen novel

Bonus 2: Stephenie Meyer

I enjoy hating her books. I enjoy it a lot. So much so that I ALMOST even enjoy the books themselves. Almost. Anyway, if she's written it, I'll probably give it a shot.

Edited to add:

Oh, I just thought of two more!! I don't buy all their books, but I HAVE read them all.

5. Michelle Jaffe

Have you read Bad Kitty? Why not? It's HILARIOUS. It's the funniest book I can think of. I don't usually laugh out loud when I'm reading books, but I laughed out loud at this one. Many, many times.

6. E. Lockhart

Frankie Landau-Banks is my hero, and if I thought my husband would let me get away with it, I would name my next daughter Ruby after Ruby Oliver.

  1. There's a Ruby in Lincoln's primary class, and she's adorable. I highly support that name. We can't use it, so you guys should. (I think Tyler would veto based on not wanting to name a daughter after my former car. Huh.)
    Also, now I want to come up with a list of 6 authors I'll buy without reading first...
