Top Ten Tuesday * Most Read Authors

TTT

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the awesome people at The Broke and Bookish, who love lists as much as I do!

Top Ten Authors I Own the Most Books From

I did this the easy way and just pulled up most read authors on Goodreads. Not a YA author in sight, which doesn’t surprise me as I didn’t read a lot of YA until I started blogging. If I had updated Goodreads properly Christopher Pike, RL Stine and Ann M Martin would have been on this list. But I’m not good at marking books from the past so… they aren’t on it!

Nora Roberts Whiskey Beach1. Nora Roberts + JD Robb (33 + 25 = 58 books)

The most books by far, even if I count them as separate they are sill 1-2. Obviously you can tell I went through a huge Nora Roberts phase. I still read her occasionally, but as I’ve started blogging I’ve gotten away from her a bit.


VC Andrews My Sweet Audrina2. VC Andrews (21 books)

All of this came from back in the day (middle/high school). I devoured her books, and then one day they just stopped being good and I stopped reading them. You can tell which stories she started before her death and which ones came after.


Sycamore Row3. John Grisham (19 books)

I love a good legal thriller, though my love for Grisham has dwindled some as he has become super political in some of his more recent releases.


Match Me If You Can4. Susan Elizabeth Phillips (14 books)

SEP phase came after my Nora Roberts phase and started with her Chicago Stars series (love books with romance and sports in them). I still enjoy her books, but she doesn’t put out books as often as other authors (which is fine).


Charlaine Harris Dead Ever After5. Charlaine Harris (13 books) (tie)

All of my Harris reads are from the Sookie Stackhouse series. I should have quite the series long before, but I just kept hoping things would get better. I know she has other titles, but I don’t know if I really want to read them.


Head Over Heels5. Jill Shalvis (13 books) (tie)

My current favorite author. Love her books, and I still have lots of backlist books to choose from. As time goes by I know she will jump up on this list!


Perfect Match Kristan Higgins7. Kristan Higgins (12 books) (tie)

Another one of my current favorite authors. I have so much love for her books and can’t wait until her next release!


1st to Die7. James Patterson (12 books) (tie)

I’m over James Patterson. If I was making this list at the end of the year he wouldn’t even make it.


How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf7. Molly Haper (12 books) (tie)

Love her books so much. They are cute and sexy and hilarious. I eagerly anticipate her all her new books.


Sophie Kinsella Wedding Night7. Sophie Kinsella (12 books) (tie)

Cute. Funny. British. What more do you need to know?

    Although Nora Roberts is probably the most prolific Romance author and I used to read a lot of Romance, I haven’t read any of her books!

    Well, okay, that’s not quite accurate . . . A friend gave me a bunch of In Death books, and I guess those count even though they’re by J.D. Robb. LOL! But they weren’t really my cup of tea–and I don’t know if that’s because they were Futuristic Mysteries or because I’m just not drawn to Roberts’s writing. Kimberly, would say that someone who doesn’t like Robb’s books would enjoy Roberts’s books?
