Ali Talks: Favorite Authors

You know the drill by now, but for those that haven't been around the blog long enough, Ali Talks are posts where I well get to chat about the things that are on my mind or chat about book related topics. Sometimes it's even blog related topics. Today I want to change it up a bit and make this a list post, where I talk about some of my all time favorite authors! 

You know the ones I'm talking about, the ones that are on our Auto buy list, the authors that as soon as they release a book you've either already pre-ordered or you pick it up right away. I have several of these authors and would like to share my list with you today. 

Trying to come up with this list was rather hard for me. I have so many favorite authors and books out there that it's hard to choose a top 10 list or even keep it at a respectable 15, but I'm going to try to do just that. These are in no particular order though, I'm just going to list the top 15! (Each of the authors are linked to their Goodreads page, figured it would be easier than trying to add links to their books.)

1. J.K. Rowling - This was an easy choose, Harry Potter is one of my all time favorite series. It got me through so much and I wouldn't be the reader I am today without it and her writing. 

2. J.R. Ward - Must I really say why on these, hot sexy vampires. I love her writing style and have loved everything she has written so far. She's also very awesome to her fans and funny in person.

3. V.E. Schwab - Another amazing author who is fantastic in person! I love her world building in all her books and gah all her books are perfection. 

4. Lori Foster - So much love for this author. She gives so much to charity and I go to her author event every year. She's super nice and to boot one hell of an author. 

5. S. E. Hinton - Now my love for this author and her books goes all the way back to the 8th grade when I first read The Outsiders! One of my all time favorite books still to this day. This book started my love of reader just as much as Harry Potter did. 

6. Kasie West - Now this is an author who writes those books that when I need to just smile and feel good about reading this is the go to author for that. Her books are always feel good love stories and sometimes we just need that happy ever after. 

7. Katie McGarry - Another fantastic author in person and on page. One of my favorites mainly because of her stories and the way she writes them. I own every one of this authors books and can't wait till she releases the next. 

8. Holly Black - This author is one that I own every book and I'm always dying ot have another one to read. 

9. Cassandra Claire - Oh Shadow hunters! Need I say more? Okay I will, I love this authors writing and it's even better when I get two of my favorite authors writing a book together like Holly Black and Cassandra Claire does. 

10. Kimberly Kincaide - In the past two years this author has become one of my favorites, she writes hot sexy fireman and honestly that's probably all I need to say, the the style in which she writes them makes her one of my favs. 

11. Diana Gabaldon - This one was easy to add to my list, she writes The Outlander series and honestly it's become one of my favorites. I blame it on the show and some of my favorite Booktubers that hooked me on the book. 

12. Neal Shusterman - OMG yep there's a guy on this list! I love the way this author writes and his stories are so immersive, take the Scythe for example. I can't get enough of this series. I'm reading Thunderhead right now and don't want it to end, because I don't have the next's not out yet. 

13. Stephenie Meyer - Yep I must add this author to my list and I better not get any slack for it, Twilight re-started my love for reading and I love this author for that reason.  Then I read The Host and loved her writing even more. 

14. Jay Kristoff - Yep another male on this list LOL! Jay Kristoff by himself as an author is like perfection but if you add him to my next author as a duo you'll see why both of them are on this list. Jay Kristoff's writing style is like no other and that's what drew me to his books. 

15. Amie Kaufman - Yep the other half of Illuminae, I love this author and her and Jay are fantastic people in person. They are super funny and so fun to talk to. I'm hooked on their writing and can't wait to read so much more from both of them together and seprate. 

So are any of your favorites on this list? Are there some that I need to know about? Comment below so I might be able to add some more favorites to my bookshelves.
