Auto buy authors

Hi booklovers

I think every (avid) reader has some authors they'll buy every book they publish and I'm no exception.

Here are two of my auto buy authors:

1. Katie McGarry. Ever since reading Pushing the Limits I fell in love with her writing style, her characters, the stories...
Katie writes YA contemporary companion stories that have a bite to them. Granted, the structure of the PTL books are pretty similar: boy meets girl (or vice versa) and they usually come from different backgrounds, they have their problems and together they try to work through them. But that's okay, it doesn't bother me. I only recently discovered contemporary because I always thought that contemporary books have fluffy love stories and I don't like those. (Or rather, I didn't like them, I warming up to them.) But reading the PTL series proved me wrong. Sure, they are love stories, but they are not always lovey dovy. I really hope Katie will carry on with the PTL series because it was really nice to read more about Echo and Noah in Breaking the Rules. Also, BTR really shows how much Katie's writing style is evolving. This story was a bit more mature (not NA) without being too explicit. I truly hope that one day she'll write a sequel to Crash Into You because Rachel and Isaiah are one of my favourite YA couples. We already learn a bit more about them in Take Me On since that story centres around Rachel's brother West, but we don't get to see them nearly enough :-s
I currently own the complete Pushing the Limits-series: Pushing The Limits - Dare You To - Crash Into You - Take Me On - Breaking The Rules (I own the e-book, but I want to own the physical copy)

I'm going to pre-order her upcoming book Nowhere but here, the first in a new series. This is actually one of my most anticipated Spring releases. I'm so curious to see what this series will be about. This comes out May 26th.

2. Cora Carmack. Another author I discovered last year. Cora writes NA stories, both contemporary and paranormal. I started by reading her Losing it companion series and I really really liked them. Little warning, these books do contain sex scenes - as do most NA stories - but they fit the stories. It's not like it's one sex scene after another, it's just part of the story. NA stories focus more on characters in the age group of those graduating high school and making their life whether it's by going to college or finding jobs and all the issues that go with that. Usually, these are fun, exciting, sexy, quick reads and I really enjoy them. Sometimes, NA stories tend to be a bit 'more of the same', but I don't find that's the case with Cora's stories. 
She currently has three series out and some novella's. 
I own the Losing it series: Losing it - Keeping Her (novella) - Faking it - Finding it - Seeking Her (novella).

I also have the two current books in the Rusk University series: All Lined Up and All Broke Down.

I'm going to pre-order the next one, which is All Played Out. This one comes out May 12th.
 I also own Inspire, the first book in her Muse series, but I haven't read it yet. But being on an NA kick lately, I'm sure it won't be long before I do.

Since I'm not a big fan of the covers (except for Inspire) I own these books on my e-reader.

Let me know in the comments what some of your auto buy authors are.

Bye for now



  1. I SO want to read Pushing the Limits. It's on my Kindle. Need to get it read soon.
    Cora McCormack's covers are really saucy. They look like a good read too.
    Great post!

  2. Thanks for your comment!
    You totally should read Pushing the Limits, they are very good. I included them in my top 10 favourite books of 2014 :-)
    Cora's books are really fun, sexy reads, check them out :-)

  3. My auto buy author is John Green, but I should have more. I love so many books, but I hardly ever buy their entire collections. I love Michael Grant, I read one of his series, but not the others. And Rainbow Rowell as well. I used to be sad because I didn't know which book to read next, I don't have that problem any more. Such a luxury, really. I love that you make me think about such things. I think I'm going to read one of their books soon. :)

    1. I'm hoping to make John Green one of my auto buy authors in the future. I'm planning on getting the box set with his books, so maybe that'll help :-)
