J.K. Rowling
(Harry Potter series)

  • Does this need any explanation?
Shannon Hale
(Books of Bayern series, Princess Academy)
  • Every single book that I’ve read by Shannon Hale, I’ve loved. She writes beautifully, and I’m always enchanted.
Scott Westerfeld
(Leviathan series, Uglies series)
  • Westerfeld is a master at world-building. Period.
Lois Lowry
(The Giver, Number the Stars)
  • Lois Lowry is a children’s lit legend. I’ve bought many of her books, though these two are my favorites.
Marissa Meyer
(Lunar Chronicles series)
  • I’m thoroughly engrossed in this series, and I love what a huge scope the story has and such a wide cast of characters. Confident I will enjoy anything Marissa writes.
Laini Taylor
(Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Days of Blood and Starlight)
  • Laini Taylor’s writing is so beautiful and captivating. And her imagination is amazing.
Maggie Stiefvater
(Wolves of Mercy Falls series, Scorpio Races, Raven Boys)
  • I’ve enjoyed all of Maggie’s books for their originality and gorgeous writing.
Kristin Cashore
(Graceling, Fire, Bitterblue)
  • Cashore writes fresh, original fantasy with strong heroines.
Cynthia Hand
(Unearthly series)
  • I can’t wait to see what Hand does next because I loved her blend of contemporary and fantasy, as well as her emphasis on positive family relationships.
Stephanie Perkins
(Anna and the French Kiss, Lola and the Boy Next Door)
  • This is the first contemporary/realistic fiction author that I can honestly say I ADORE.

    I used to have JK Rowling on my list but after The Casual Vacancy she is off. Now I think I'll wait to buy whenever she publishes again.

    Great list! Maggie Stiefvater is on my list too! Oh and I'm reading Scarlet right now!Check out my TTT.Sandy @ Somewhere Only We Know

    Awesome list! Anna and the French Kiss is burning a hole on my ipad! Can't wait to read it! My TTT

  4. It's hard to say…there isn't one author that I'm always going to buy everything they write, but I guess there are a few that I will probably eventually read most of what they have written…like J.K. Rowling (still need to read The Casual Vacancy, which a friend got me for Christmas YAY). I also really love Gillian Flynn. I've read her first two and have her third that I need to find time for…it's a big one, though! 🙂

  5. I'm not familiar with Shannon Hale. I have to change that soon!

    Yeeeeeeeep! to most of these. The rest I'll have to check out. I love Maggie S. and Stephanie P. SO FREAKING MUCH. And Marissa M. Yeah…they are all conspiring to make me poor. 🙂
