Top Ten Tuesday -Autobuy authors

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book blogging initiative hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl with new themes each week.

This weeks theme is Autobuy Authors

This week’s one is going to be a short one. I’m determined to post something today as I’ve been a bit unwell with an appalling migraine all Monday and missed my usual posting.

I had made notes already about the authors I would buy blind, like don’t care if it’s the same series or new series or something completely out of the box and these are the ones that are an absolute yes because it’s not just me who enjoys their work, Littlefae and Tinyfae adore these authors so much we would automatically buy whatever they produce!

There are other authors and illustrators and MG authors that I would be excited to buy too but this is what I could manage and it’s a core group that means a lot to the girls.

Harriet Muncaster

Isadora Moon

Harriet Muncaster is the author and illustrator of the Isadora Moon series which is so close to our hearts that whatever Harriet creates we will be adding to our collection! We love these stories of kindness and wonder with a twist of magic and gothiness thanks to the half vampire half Fairy context!

Laura Ellen Anderson

Like Isadora, Amelia Fang and her friends are embedded in my children’s imaginations, and have been crucial in inspiring Littlefae to read. Tinyfae is even a huge fan of the series and can name them all. The wonderful adventures of our Nocturnian friends are sealed upon three hearts here and we look forward to more

Alex T Smith

What can I say we adore Alex T Smith in this house. Claude is beloved by both my girls and Mr Penguin is so funny and brilliantly written, we are looking forward immensely to the third instalment of these adventures the Catastrophic Cruise!!

Anne Booth

Book cover by Rosie Butcher

Ever since Littlefae first enjoyed a Lucy story which are Christmassy magic and animal stories she has been hooked on Anne Booth’s writing and the wonderful Magical Kingdom Of Birds has sealed our love for this author. From picture books and when she is ready Middle Grade Anne’s books will be there to inspire with kindness and heart.

Janey Louise Jones

Would you believe we have collected many of the Young Corgi/Picture Corgi Princess Poppy books because both Littlefae & Tinyfae can’t get enough of Princess Poppy! They both loved Please Please Save The Bees so much that they both enjoy the earlier books too. We are looking forward to the next book in collaboration with Jennie Poh ‘Fantastic, No plastic’ too!!

Who would you pick as Autobuy?

What do you think of these choices?

    1. I’m a bit better today yesterday was a write off though I surfaced a few times but after 5 or 10 minutes it was unbearable so had to lie down again. Today I have to cope as we have hospital 😕

  1. I am not at all surprised by your list! Great choices. My must-buys are Kiran Millwood-Hargrave, Abu Elphinstone, Jon Klassen, Morag Hood. Probably others I can’t think of…

    1. Given more time Jon Klassen & Jim Field would no doubt have been added as illustrators but I was in no fit state!! To be honest it was thanks to planning last week that I had anything to post at all.

  2. So sorry to hear about your migraine! I hope you’re feeling better soon. Glad to see Amelia Fang on here! I’m already planning a big Book Depository order to get these for my daughter for Christmas, and hopefully they’ll inspire her to read a bit more, too. 😉

    1. Glad to hear you’re doing better! My daughter is so unlike her father and I with reading habits. There’s a few things we’ve found that she likes, but she refuses to take the next step into chapter books. xD So we’ve just been encouraging her to read books that she enjoys, regardless of the size haha. She loves the Bad Kitty books, and the one series of bigger books she likes is Dork Diaries lol.

    2. That’s what we are doing with Littlefae she isn’t ready to let go of picture books but craves more complicated and detailed plots so we share read highly illustrated books and it’s really helped. That and audiobooks of suitable middle grade she gets really involved!!

    3. Oh! You know, I’ve never thought of audio books. Though, my daughter has my attention issues, and she doesn’t stop talking ever, so I’m not sure she’d listen to an audiobook. xD Might be something I try, though. We found a second-hand Nook, and we’re going to see if she’ll maybe take more to reading if she’s able to go onto the library Overdrive herself and pick out her own books and read them whenever she wants on the Nook. xD So cross your fingers LOL.

    4. Definitely cross my fingers for you. We do audiobooks in the car or while in the garden- car works best but it works differently for everyone- I sometimes zone out in audiobooks it has to be pretty special to keep my attention but Littlefae gets deeply engrossed so it works for her!
