I’m linking up today with That Artsy Reader Girl for Top Ten Tuesday: Thanksgiving Freebie.
Do you have a favorite auto-buy or auto-read author?
Do you need an auto-buy or auto-read author?!
Who is your favorite auto-buy or auto-read author?
What qualities are important to consider when deciding on an auto-buy or auto-read author?
Books from auto-buy or auto-read authors are ones I’m likely to preorder or request from the library before publication day. They are books that don’t require a great deal of research or contemplation. I know I’m going to want to read the new release to see for myself. These are authors that I’ve grown to trust. I have a mental list of several auto-buy or auto-read authors including Fredrik Backman, Kate Quinn, Ruta Sepetys, Stephanie Dray/Laura Kamoie, Louise Penney, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Mitch Albom, etc. etc.
This is not the only way I choose a book, but certain authors are irresistible! In today’s Thanksgiving-focused post, I’m listing 10 reasons I’m thankful for Fredrik Backman and his work.
Ten Reasons I’m Thankful For a Favorite Author, Fredrik Backman:
- Honest, Authentic, Truthful
- Risktaker (in content and genre)
- Masterful Story Teller
- Exquisite Writer
- Creator of Memorable and Often Quirky Characters
- Committed to Substantial Themes
