Inspired by Book Buzzers, Book Girls Don't Cry is a weekly feature where we each discuss/vent/advise on the chosen weekly bookish topic. Don't miss Jenni on Mondays, and Amy on Saturdays:

The Force is Strong With These Ones
We all have authors who, as soon as we see their name on a book, we buy it and read it no question. Most times without even checking what it's even about, let alone reading the blurb behind the book. So this week we're going to list which authors we absolutely love! Here is my list of authors whose books I buy based on, basically, the author's name on it and it alone! And maybe you will find a some that will one day be on your own list as well! ;)
Note that I at least have to love 2 books by an author --often from different series or 2 stand-alones-- before I dare put them on my highly treasured and exclusive guaranteed-to-love-books-by authors list!
I mean, who honestly thought she wouldn't be on this list? This woman is a mastermind with horror novels--which happens to be one of my top fav genres. So yeah! :D But really, her As the World Dies series is one of my all time favorite that is hardly beat by any other. I enjoyed zombie books before, but I do owe her for my addiction to them now!
I liked contemporary, but I rarely read it before absolutely loving Catching Jordan when it came out. I then followed the whole series since and they're all amazing, even if some of them are out of my comfort zones. It's like this woman was made for writing the sweetest contemporaries ever! Plus, she's married to Obama! She told me herself!
And this one, I mean, hello! It's Courtney Summers! My list would not be complete with my other zombie fall-in-lover! ;) This woman also has obvious talent where she can write zombies one day, then contemporaries on another, and slam-dunk them both!
I could list more but it's getting a bit long so I'll stop at these top bookish masterminds. I also know there will likely be more on here in the next few years. I hesitate to put authors on my "no questions asked" buy list if I only read one book of theirs, so a LOT probably deserve to be on here and will be very soon!
Who are your must check out authors?
Do our lists we have some matches? ;)
Also, don't forget to leave suggestions for future topics you'd like to see! :)
You know you love me!
Xoxo, Book Girl!
