"Finally, Jericho's eyes widened in understanding. 'Well, that's my wife, and you can't have her,' he announced awkwardly. He pulled back and socked Sam, catching him across the jaw and bottom lip. Sam tottered and sank to his knees, his mouth bloody.

'Son of a--' Sam croaked." p 202

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

This week's topic is: Top Ten Of Your Auto-buy Authors

*in no particular order
**for me this is an almost "anything" since I'm not a contemp reader, one of my near auto-buy authors does write some contemps and another practically auto-buy author does have a MG book out and I'm not an MG reader. So again, this is nearly, almost "anything"! ;)

 1. MARIA V. SNYDER--Definitely on my auto-buy list! As I mentioned in my side comment, she does have 1 MG book out that I haven't read or really plan to read since I'm not much of an MG reader. But everything else, I click that baby into my online shopping cart! Unless I'm at the store, then I add it to my stack of books to buy!
2. JULIE KAGAWA--a straight up auto-buy author! I've bought all her books and am on pins and needles waiting for The Iron Warrior! Let alone, Soldier!
3. JENNIFER L. ARMENTROUT--one of those nearly auto-buys, as she writes contemporary and that's not my genre of choice. At all. But everything else that's NOT contemp, I buy! This includes her thrillers too! I still need to read The Dead List! Ugh, computer reading...

4. JEANIENE FROST--looooooove this woman's books! There hasn't been one I didn't enjoy to the fullest! So yes, she's auto-buy!!
5. GRETCHEN McNEIL--another auto-buy because she's one of the best YA thriller authors I've read! I've read a handful too! Her books are always so mysterious and creepy! I still need to read Get Even! But ugh...time!!
6. CHLOE NEILL--I was so intrigued when Some Girls Bite came out! I mean a UF heroine on the cover wearing jeans and a tank top?! How awesome was that! Don't get me wrong, I love the leather look that we see, even with Merit, but it was such an eyecatcher to me in the beginning! Still love this series and pretty much every book Chloe's written since!

7. DARYNDA JONES--oh how I love the Charley Davidson series! It makes me laugh out loud so much! It's scary reading it in public because I'm liking going to be "that girl"! LOL! I am quite behind in this series now and ache to get caught up! Also really liked her YA series as well! It was fun!
8. KELLEY ARMSTRONG--I've read nearly everything she's written! The exception is all those novellas, because holy cow, I can't keep up with them all! Loving her own anthologies coming out with a selection of her stories in them! That totally works for me! And since I'm not at all an MG reader, I haven't read her series she's written with Melissa Marr.
9. VICTORIA LAURIE--I love her mystery seires! Both of which I'm behind in. Again! Errg! I enjoyed her foray into the YA world, When, as well! And again, I haven't read her MG series, because not an MG reader. Feel the need to repeat myself, as I had to make this stipulation for this topic!

10. NANCY HOLDER & DEBBIE VIGUIE--a somewhat cheat since it's two authors, but they are my most favorite writing duo!! I have loved all their books they've written together! And I pretty much buy whatever book I see with both their names on it because I know it will be awesome!



  1. Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie are definite auto-buys for me. So is Maria. She's actually a friend of mine :) Great list of awesome authors!

    Michelle @ Michelle's Minions

    My TTT

  2. This is a man who loves his wife! :P
    Nice tease.

    Here's mine:

    Athina @ Between my Lines

  3. Nice teaser. I love a good laugh in the morning. Starts my day off right. :-)
    sherry @ fundinmental My TT

  4. Great teaser. He deserves more than a sock in the face. Here is mine

  5. Hahaha I love that teaser. It almost sounds a little bit slapstick although I'm sure it's quite a difficult situation! The cover for this book looks amazing though and I think I've actually heard about if from a friend before! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great week!
    My Tuesday post
    Juli @ Universe in Words

  6. Great list! I had the same problem as you. I just don't read MG, so I didn't put any of my authors that write it. Also, great teaser!

    Christina @ Books & Prejudice

  7. That will teach him to poach on another man's wife. Or did he know she was married? Hmm...

    Here's my TT -

  8. Great teaser. Most of your auto-buy authors are also on my auto-buy list. My teaser this week comes from Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews. Happy reading!

  9. I don't even think I have read many books from those Auto buy for me is Molly Harper.

    My teaser

  10. Thankfully, I have heard of all of these authors. But except for JLA, I haven't read anyone else's books. I had to give up on JLA for, well... reasons! Anyway, I see why they're on your auto-buy since you PN mostly, so that's great.

    Lovely post, and thank you so much for stopping by mine earlier. Happy reading!

    Sarika @ The Readdicts

  11. I totally forgot to put Kelley Armstrong on my list! She is definitely one of my auto-buy authors!

  12. I haven't read a lot of these authors, but there are several I'm interested in! The only thing I've read by Julie Kagawa is Talon, which I've really enjoyed!! Great list :D

    Here are my Top Ten!

  13. I have Chloe Neill and Kelley Armstrong on my list as well. I also love Kagawa and Frost, but there were too many ahead of them for them to make my list. Thanks for sharing!

  14. Great list! I haven't heard of a lot of these authors, but you make them sound so good I think I'll have to check a few of them out. I'm seeing a good amount of JLA. I haven't read her yet, but hope to soon. I'm happy to see Darynda Jones of course because I just love her so much! Thanks for visiting my blog! Happy reading!

  15. Teaser Tuesday is new to me... looks like fun!

    Snyder made the list too. Also, Holden was one I read a long time ago. Might need to check out her newest work. Cheers!

  16. I was thinking of picking The Diviners up to read soon! I have heard such great things about it.

    I enjoyed reading your top ten list! Kelley Armstrong didn't make my list, but she easily could have. I love her books. I've only read one Jeaniene Frost- book so far and I enjoyed it--I want to read more by her at some point. I haven't read any of the other authors you mention, but all are ones I would like to try.

  17. So many authors I need to check out! We only both had JLA on our lists!

    My TTT

    Lizzie @ Big Books and Grande Lattes

  18. So....don't mess with Jericho's wife huh. Love the tease! Lots of great authors there! I think I would add Kim Harrison, Ilona Andrews, and Patricia Briggs - though I'm bad and have bought the majority of their books and still haven't read them all.

  19. This comment has been removed by the author.

  20. Love your TTT list....Julie Kagawa and Darynda Jones are favorites of mine as well even if they didn't make my list this week.

    My TTT is here.

  21. Funny. My authors are new-to-you and your authors are new-to-me!

  22. Why does Sam want his wife? Got hit though *wink*
    Love your top 10 ... there's only two on your list I haven't read!

    Naomi @ Naomi’s Reading Palace

  23. What a tease. Thanks for sharing.

  24. jennifer armentrout is awesome. she'd be on my list too but i've only picked up/read her NA books so far. i'm hoping to picking up her YA paranormals soon :)

  25. Wonderful list with so many of my favourite authors on there too, most of which should have been on my list but didn't..... too many authors and not enough spaces in the Top Ten :(
