Top Ten Tuesdays: Is a weekly meme feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where bloggers post their Top 10 List for an assigned topic! I will not be participating every week, but I will occasionally take a shot at it! You can always find these lists (past, present and original) on my Riffle Page!
This Week’s Topic:
Top Ten Authors I’ve read the Most
When I first saw this as this week’s topic, I had no idea how to go about it. I have a LOT of books in my “read” pile so I was dreading tallying up everything by hand. UNTIL, I discovered a nifty little feature on Goodreads while exploring my bookshelf: they have a “Most Read Author” sorter that tallies everything FOR YOU! Glorious!
Here are my Most Read Authors & the cover of my favourite novel by them!
#9 – Ally Carter – Books Read: 11 | REVIEWS: 3
Ally Carter won me over with the Gallagher Girls and she’s had me hooked ever since! One my favourite YA authors, hands down.
#9 – Tessa Dare – Books Read: 11 | REVIEWS: 3
While I may have outgrown my historical regency romance phase, I STILL read any book that Tessa Dare publishes! Her books are the perfect blend of romance, humour, fun and drama.
#7 – Lynsay Sands – Books Read: 13 | REVIEWS: 1
When I first got into highlander and historical romances, Lynsay Sands was someone I read a lot of because of her humour. Her books were a lot of fun and that lead me to her very long Argeneau vampire series.
#7 – Julie Kagawa – Books REad: 13 | REVIEWS: 4
Julie Kagawa is one of my favourite world-building authors. The Iron Fey series had so many great interweaving elements that I quickly put her on the top of my “read-everything-she-writes” list.
#5 –Jennifer L Armentrout – Books rEad: 14 | REVIEWS: 2
While I find most of Armentrout’s work seems to follow the same formula, she always has a unique spin to her stories. Aliens, gargoyles, not-your-average-vampires–always a cool spin that keeps me interested in what she has coming up next.
#5 – Bella Andre – Books Read: 14 | REVIEWS: 3
There’s a touch of irony for me when I see Bella Andre’s name on this list. I almost stopped reading the first book I ever read by her (The Look of Love) but I pulled through and really enjoyed the sequel books in the Sullivan series.
#3 – Meg Cabot – Books REad: 16 | REVIEWS: 4
This list really be complete without Meg Cabot. I read her books exclusively for most of my teen years. I credit her with making me love reading and starting a love of historical romance (I’ve read Victoria and the Rogue more times than I can count). I also love her adult novels as well!
#3 – Richelle Mead – Books Read: 16 | REVIEWS: 3
One of my all time favourite YA authors! But I’ve also enjoyed her adult novels as well. One of the most consistent authors I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading!
#2 – H M Ward – Books Read: 18 | REVIEWS: 2
Ok, this one is a little inflated because H M Ward writes mostly serial novels so the total is so high because there are so many parts. But I do enjoy her works and how they all are interwoven together in some capacity.
#1 – Abbi Glines – Books Read: 22 | reviews: 6
Abbi writes great dramatic New Adult novels. They have a fantastic balance between romance and drama. I simply devour them in one day and can’t wait for the next one to be published!
- Mary Balogh – Books Read: 10 | Reviews: 0 (Fave: Slightly Scandalous)
- Louise Rennison – Books Read: 10 | Reviews: 1 (Fave: Georgia Nicolson Series)
- Colleen Hoover – Books Read: 10 | Reviews: 5 (Fave: Hopeless)
- Christina Lauren – Books Read: 10 | Reviews: 2 (Fave: Beautiful Player)
Do we read a lot of the same authors? who was on your list?
