Auto Buy Authors Good or Bad Habit?



We all have those auto buy authors. You know the authors that are so freaking talented that you are going to buy their books without even having to know what the book is about. For example my auto buys are Sarah J. Maas, Wendy Higgins, Jennifer L. Armentrout, Josephine Angelini, and those are just a few! I think having auto buy authors are great! I mean it is amazing to find authors that are so talented they never do wrong, but I have started to have a problem with that. My problem is I have been sticking just to those authors. I have not been branching out much. I went to Apollycon which was AMAZING, but I realized there were so many authors I didn't know. I read the same authors and while that is great, I just wait for their new books to come out and I never truly branch out. 
While I will continue to love and keep my auto buy authors, I am going to start working on branching out. I also want to start branching out in genre. While my heart and most of my reading will stay YA reads, I want to start reading more adult as well. 

Here are a few authors that I have been recommended and I have ordered or already bought their books. 
  • Kristen Ashley I was specifically recommended her Wildest Dreams (Fantasyland #1) 
  • Alexandria Bracken: OH MY GOODNESS I met her at Apollycon and she is seriously the sweetest person ever! She was so genuine and asked all kinds of questions. She really wanted to get to know people and That meant so much to me. I received an ARC of Passenger, but bought it as well because she was so sweet I had to support her! 
  • Alison Goodman I bought her book Eon
  • Katie McGarry I bought her Pushing the Limits 
  • Paullina Simons: New friends that I was lucky enough to meet at Apollycon could not stop talking about The Bronze Horseman 
  • Susan Dennard: I watched an interview with her in it, and she seemed so genuine and her books sounds interesting.  I bought her Something Strange and Deadly and Truthwitch. I have started her Trurthwitch book and I am loving it! 
  • Garth Nix: I want to start his Abhorsen series. The fist book is Sabriel. At Apollycon SJM talked about her this book inspired her way of writing and it of course was immediately added to my TBR. 
I have already started some of these books, and I plan on reading most of them soon since I have a week off next week. Let me know your author recs and I will add them to my list. Also let me know how you feel about auto buying and if it messes with your reading habits. 
Happy Reading Y'all, 
Ashley

Tea Review: Davids Tea Cold 911

Cold 911 Emergency relief Bad colds require kick butt interventions. Take this tea, for example. It’s a deliciously soothing mix of peppermint, juniper berries and apple. Pretty kick butt, right? If that’s not extreme enough for you, you could try eating raw garlic, or gargling salt water, or inhaling lots of steam. Yeah...we didn’t think so. Probably better just to stick to the tea. With its soothing citrus and mint aroma we can’t guarantee miracle results, but at least we can guarantee it tastes great. (MK Kosher) Ingredients Organic: Peppermint, apple, juniper berries. With natural eucalyptus and orange flavouring*.
So fun fact, while helping six year olds practice their reading you may will get spit on. Another fun fact when they are sick and spit on you, you will get sick and feel like the walking dead. Times like this is why I am so happy that I stocked up on some of Davids Tea . Yup you guessed it after being spit on I was sicker than a dog. I was coughing, running a fever, m…

Top Ten Tuesday: Villains

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This weeks Top Ten:Villains (favorite, best, worst, lovable, creepiest, most evil, etc.)
I couldn't decide which type of villain I wanted to write about, so that lead me to do subcategories. I feel like such a rebel!
Villains I Love To Hate 
The Beautiful Pretender I have a review of this book coming soon so I won't say too much, but there is a character I absolutely hate. Most villains have redeeming qualities, but this character had lacked any of those qualities. She loved to hurt others and was completely heartless. 
The Falconer The Villain in this book was completely cut throat, heartless, violent, and everything I love to hate. This Villain did things that ripped my heart out, stomped on it, then put it through a shredder. 
Empire of Storms I have n…
