Favorites Reads by Auto-buy Authors

Book stack with words Favorite Reads: Amazing Books by Auto-buy Authors

by Ashley Dickson-Ellison (@teachingtheapocalypse)

In this Wednesday's episode, we're discussing some of our favorite authors that we consider to be auto-buy authors. We talk in the episode about what we mean when we say auto-buy authors, and for me, it often means that I will read everything new that the author produces. We each share some of our personal auto-buy authors. Here are a few examples of books I loved so much that I knew when I read them that the author would become an auto-buy author for me!

Brit Bennett's The Mothers - This phenomenal book has stayed with me over time. I found the exploration of relationships between women and the ways that those can be impacted by men to be so powerful. This was a profound and poignant story, and I knew when I read it that I'd be reading everything that she wrote! I absolutely loved The Vanishing Half as well and look forward to what she writes next. So brilliant!

Talia Hibbert's Get a Life, Chloe Brown - I've talked often on the podcast about each of the Brown sisters and how much I love this series! I read this one about Chloe first, and it is the perfect kind of romance for me. Since then, I've read Take a Hint, Dani Brown, (which I shared on our Love Is in the Air 2021 episode!) and I'm currently finishing Act Your Age, Eve Brown. They've all been amazing for me and continue to be my favorite romances. They're clever, unique, and hilarious, and I love the way that Hibbert portrays characters on the spectrum in her romances. There's plenty of steam and colorful language, which is perfect for me!

Tommy Orange's There There - We discussed this one as a book club pick in the fall, and I wanted to give it ALL the stars. I loved the way that Orange crafted his story and found his writing to be so phenomenal. This brilliant book is profoundly impactful, and I think back on it often. I look forward to Orange's sequel scheduled for 2022.

Taylor Jenkins Reid's The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo - I had read Daisy Jones and the Six first and really enjoyed it, but this one is the one that won me over to TJR and made her an auto-buy author for me. See my review of this one here. I love the way she crafts her stories and characters, and I look forward to reading the rest of her back list as well as her upcoming release, Malibu Rising.
