Top Ten Tuesday: Even Their Grocery Lists

Top Ten Tuesday
Each week they post a new Top Ten list that one of
their loggers at The Broke and the Bookish will answer.
Everyone is welcome to join.

This week over at The Broke and the Bookish is Julia’s top ten auto-buy authors. Hop over there after you read mine and look at some great lists.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane: A Novel Make Good Art

Neil Gaiman – I bet you are all shocked. Adult literature, children’s picture books, anthologies he edits, it doesn’t matter. If his name is one it I will read it.

Doll Bones The Coldest Girl in Coldtown

Holly Black – Equally diverse and equally appealing. Spiderwick, Modern Faerie Tale, Curse Workers, The Good Neighbors I have read them all. And her witty anthologies just make her that much better.

Cold Days: A Novel of the Dresden Files

Jim Butcher – According to “His next novel will be the first in a new Steampunk series, The Cinder Spires, called The Aeronaut’s Windlass. After that will be book #15 of The Dresden Files,Skin Game.” Sounds great to me.

The Magicians: A Novel The Magician King: A Novel (The Magicians)
Lev Grossman – I know that I completely agreed with Neil Gaiman’s now famously named journal post George R.R. Martin is not your bitch. However, Lev Grossman is. He needs to write faster! I know he and his wife just had a ridiculously cute baby but I need The Magician’s Land, like NOW!

Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls
David Sedaris – Few people make me laugh out loud when I am reading. This man is one of them. And honestly, I bet even his grocery list would be entertaining.

Fables, Vol. 18: Cubs in Toyland
Bill Willingham – I will admit I am way behind in my reading of this but I love Bill Willingham and I love this world he has created.

Oz Reimagined: New Tales from the Emerald City and Beyond Grumbles from the Forest: Fairy-Tale Voices with a Twist
Jane Yolan – I am beginning to think that she is a cyborg who never sleeps. That is the only way that she can produce the number of things she does. She has written over 300 books. So, maybe I can’t afford to put her here.

Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone) Days of Blood & Starlight (Daughter of Smoke and Bone)
Laini Taylor – See what I said about Lev Grossman. Although at least I can go back and read all of her stuff that I have not yet read.

Complete Stories and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe
Edgar Allan Poe – I could hope they find some previously unpublished works, right?

Joyland NOS4A2: A Novel
Up until recently Steven King but his son Joe Hill might have knocked him off this list. – I really am loving Locke & Key and while Horns was not my fav, Heart Shaped Box and 20th Century Ghosts were rockin’.

  1. Fables and Locke & Key are my two favorite graphic novel series! 2013 is my year of wrapping up series, but Jim Butcher is totally on my radar to start soon. Love the steampunk stuff! I can’t believe I forgot Laini Taylor on my list! Shame.
