Top Ten Authors We've Read The Most Books From

For future Top Ten Tuesday topics & info on how to participate, click here!

This week is all about the authors we have read the most books from. 

Jana's Picks

Going through my books, I realized I tend to read from a TON of different authors. I've got so many I love, but most of them are new authors within the last few years so they only have 2-3 books out. I also host the Debut Author Challenge, so I have found myself reading more debuts lately. I need to re-visit some of my favorite authors, apparently!

1. Tracey Garvis-Graves (4 books)
On the Island is my favorite by her, but I've pretty much read and loved everything she's written!

2. Marissa Meyer (4 books)
The Lunar Chronicles are AMAZING. Can't wait for Winter!

3. Veronica Rossi (5 books - if you count her Boomerang books) 
Under the Never Sky is one of my favorite trilogies, and her Boomerang books collaboration as Noelle August are so swoony. 

4. Maggie Stiefvater (5 books)
I loved the Wolves of Mercy Falls and I enjoyed her two Books of Faerie as well. I DNF'd The Raven Boys. *hides*

5. Mary Higgins-Clark (A ton. I don't even know how many.)
I enjoy Mary's mysteries in the summer because they are so creepy and summer had more daylight hours! Haha. Sadly, her books are not as good as they used to be.


Lauren's Picks

I was lucky for this week's TTT. I didn't even have to look at my bookcases or my Goodreads shelves. My boyfriend likes to pick on me by saying that all authors are my favorite, but.. I simply have several favorite authors. Just to be fair, I only listed three today, but I assure you.. the list goes on.

6. Margaret Atwood (all of them)
You know how people have spirit animals? Let's just say that Atwood is my spirit person. 

7. Michelle Moran (all of them)
Most of you know that historical fiction was my first love, and Moran does historical fiction right. She focuses on the facts and branches out from there. All of her novels feature women who have had strong personalities/vital roles in their society, which is a definite plus for me.

8. Ania Ahlborn (all except the newest one)
This author. She just does it for me. All of her novels are horror and somehow she can weave a classic horror theme into a completely new and creative plot that literally keeps you from blinking while reading.



Daisy's Picks

9. Jill Mansell (16 books)
So I have a lot of love for Jill Mansell and her contemporary romances! They're my kind of comfort read and I've basically devoured her whole backlist when I 'discovered' her when I was about 17 or so.

10. Maria V. Snyder (11 books)
I LOVE Maria V. Snyder's writing style! I've read all her books except for the latest one, but it's sitting on my shelf, so SOON!




Tell us your most read authors!!

  5. Margaret Atwood is all over the place for me! Some of her work I've loved, some I'm been indifferent to, and some has just confused the heck out of me.

  11. Great list!! I've read the first three books in the Raven Cycle series and can't wait for the final book. I'm just now starting the Lunar Chronicles series and I hope to get to Rossi by the end of the year.

  12. Apparently this comment box really wants me logged in under my Google account, not Wordpress. Oh well. My original comment (before deletion to try to log in correctly) was: "Oh my gosh, I know Maria Snyder and have read all her books and still completely forgot to put her on my list! I may need to go edit it now, I feel completely ashamed..."

  22. My top read author was Walter Farley, that is if you don't count Dr. Seuss (42). I read 20 of his Black Stallion horse books as a preteen. :)
