This post was actually supposed to be for 7/7/20 Top Ten Tuesday, but me being me, I forgot to post on Tuesday. The topic was “Authors I Read the Most Books By” and I liked the topic so much that I’ve decided to do the post anyways. I’ll probably (hopefully) start posting regularly for TTT this upcoming Tuesday!
Cassandra Clare (18 Books)
With the exception to the graphic novels and some supplementary essays, I’ve read every single Shadowhunter book by Cassie Clare. Her writing isn’t perfection, but I just love her characters and the family dynamics.
Maggie Stiefvater (12 Books)
I love Maggie Stiefvater’s books. Her writing style is absolutely gorgeous and her characters are always complex. I’ve read almost all her YA books except for Sinner of Mercy Falls series or All the Crooked Saints, neither of which I really want to read.
Marie Lu (11 Books)
I’ve learned that I have read nearly all of Marie Lu’s books. The only ones I’m missing are her graphic novels and short stories for the Legend trilogy. Lu is one of my auto-buy authors, mostly because I like her ideas and her writing is strong no matter the genre.
Sarah J. Maas (11 Books)
Maas has only written two series. I’ve read both of them. One series is 8 books long (including a prequel anthology) and the other is 3 plus a novella. I have yet to read Assassin’s Blade and Crescent City. So basically, the only reason I’ve read so much Maas is because the TOG series is so damn long LOL.
Holly Black (9 Books)
I loved the Modern Faerie Tales and Cruel Prince series, and I really enjoyed Coldtown, but I only read the first book of her Curse Workers series and I haven’t read any of her middle grade fiction books.
D.J. MacHale (8.5 Books)
The only reason this one is on here is because this one series is 10 books long. I made it all the way up to half of the 9th book before I set it down for a break and forgot to go back. One day I’ll finish the Pendragon series. It’s sooo good!
Leigh Bardugo (8 Books)
The only book I’ve neglected to read by Leigh Bardugo is her Wonder Woman. Otherwise, Bardugo is an auto-buy author. I love her dark tales and because of this, I will read almost anything that woman writes.
Marissa Meyer (7 Books)
While I love Marissa Meyer, she’s not yet an insta-buy for me. I finished the Lunar Chronicles (but not Stars Above) and I’ve only just begun the Renegades trilogy.
V.E. Schwab (7 Books)
I really enjoy Schwab’s works and I can’t wait to add her new book to my collection. I’ve only read the series above, but I hope to read her other books/series some day.
Jane Austen (6 Books)
I took a Jane Austen class in college and thanks to that course, I read all six of Austen’s main works: P+P, Emma, Sense and Sensibility, Persuasion, Northanger Abbey, and Mansfield Park. So now, she’s become one of the authors I’ve read the most books from!
Thanks for stopping by! Until next time 💕
