Chuck Palahniuk 

Obviously, there's some overlap between last week and this week.  I have loved everything Chuck ever wrote.  Maybe I didn't live and die by all of them, but I've never felt even mediocre about one of his books.  He has my undying faith.   
Sarah J. Maas 

I've said this before: I'd buy toilet paper if Sarah wrote on it.  She just keeps getting better and better, especially with ToG.  And now a third series!?  These are books I'd buy in all editions, just to ogle.  


Susan Dennard 

Give me all the books now!  Seriously, not getting an ARC of Truthwitch may be the single worst bookish thing of this year.  I've had my copy on pre-order for months now, and it's not even out until January.  
John Green 

Maybe his books have a bit of sameness to them, but I always know I'm in for a quirky ride with adorable characters and quotes to write on my wall.  I'm just wondering where his next book is!  Not sure I'm quite desperate enough to read the Christmas one yet.  

A.S. King 

I read Reality Boy through an ARC tour and I've never looked back.  King's stuff is weird and raw and emotional, and I want more!  Luckily, there are still a few older titles I've stashed away for a rainy day, cause waiting sucks.  
Renee Ahdieh 

She's a new addition to this list.  I'd have pre-ordered Wrath and the Dawn's sequel already if it weren't, you know, titleless and not available for purchase yet.  It's a lot of trust after one book, but Wrath wowed me so completely that I know anything Ahdieh writes will be gold.   
Cat Winters 

While I didn't love The Uninvited quite as much as her first two (although I did love it, so check back Sunday for the blog tour!), I've enjoyed every one of Cat's books.  They're authentically historical, they tend to focus on spirits and war, and they have bantery romances that don't overshadow the feminist themes.  Yes, please! 

Jennifer Niven 

I want her next young adult book now.  Or I'll just keep re-reading snippets of All the Bright Places until I've re-read the whole thing like 10 times.  I love it enough that I might actually dip into her adult books, because I neeeeed more!  
Victoria (V.E.) Schwab 

I may not have read them all yet, but I own all of her books, because I buy them as soon as they're available.  The Archived captured my attention with its quirky darkness, and Victoria continues to wow and surprise me. 

Leigh Bardugo 

After I shredded through the Grisha trilogy, I knew that Leigh was going to be a long-time favorite.  Which is why I waited in line an hour and a half early to get Six of Crows at BEA, because waiting was not an option.  And I'm still pre-ordering the hardcover.  


  1. I absoulutely love Leigh Bardugo's writing. I could have put her on my list! Same with Sarah J Maas. Great list! My TTT!

  2. Maas made my list this week as well, infact I just went out and bought all the work by her that I didn't already have haha. I agree with Green and Niven as well. Great list :)

  3. Great list! We have a lot in common, obviously. I need to read some Cat Winters. For some reason she has escaped my notice until now but I've heard great things.

  4. I LOVE Sarah J. Maas and Susan Dennard! Two of my absolute favorites! How could I forget Leigh Bardugo!?!?
