Top Ten Authors That I'd Put On My Auto-Buy List

So who are top ten authors who are on my auto-buy list? Obviously all the authors I'm thankful for, but since some of them are dead, I'm going to limit this list only to authors that are still alive and publishing books.

So, whose new books I will always buy without checking out the summary, genre and turning the blind eye on high price or ugly cover?

Top Ten Favorite Characters In Fantasy Genre

Topic for top ten list today is 'Top Ten Favorite Characters In X Genre' - and I picked Fantasy. This was a fun list to make, to think about all the books I loved and remember my favorite characters. The only downside is that I now have strong wish to re-read most of them again. :)

You should never give up hoping. I guess what they say is true, because my request for 'Til The World Ends got approved after two months. That was a surprise and totally unexpected. :D

Top Five Best Bookish Memories

Am I repeating myself if I say that this was another tough list to make? The problem is, I am from small south-eastern European country, so my favorite authors never visit, there are no big book fairs in my town, no book signings, blogger conventions or anything similar, new book releases are late by a year (time until publishers translate them etc.), so I could not think about a lot of life-changing events related to books that happened to me. Except learning to read of course. :D (And I wrote how that happened in the beginning of my review of Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm: A New English Version by Philip Pullman.)

But here is my attempt to assemble a couple of my favorite bookish memories:

If you remember, last time I posted a list of my new books, I declared that I will not buy or request any new books. And I managed to be a good bookworm and just read until February started - surprise surprise. It's not a full month but I think I did well. :)

You probably noticed I was MIA most of January, the reason is I was between PCs - gave old one away and the new one was delivered three weeks later than I planned. So I was working for three weeks on old slow laptop with small screen. I did not have inspiration to blog about anything, sorry. But the good news is - I read a lot of books, so there will be plenty of reviews in February. ;)

So, without further ado, here are the new books on my eReader:
