#TopTenTuesday: Authors I’ve Read the Most Books By

So, we’re back with another Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s prompt is: authors I’ve read the most books by.

This week’s topic is pretty straightforward and although it should be easy I have to admit I was a little stumped to figure out who I’ve read the most books by. I have to admit that I don’t actually know the number of books that I’ve read for each author and I’m also really tired right now so I don’t have the energy to look it up (I’m so lame, I’m sorry, friends!), and so I’m ballparking it here… I’m also keeping this short since this week has already felt like the past three months combined and is it really only Tuesday? 🙃 Welp.

Jodi Picoult and Nora Roberts really take the top spots for this because I used to devour their books starting from high school and when I picked up reading again after I finished uni. I’ve also read almost all of Michael Crichton’s books after I discovered a bunch of his books in the secondhand bookstore when I moved to Cambodia and started reading again (the same time as Roberts’ books actually which were also found in abundance at the secondhand store)!

I’ve read about half of V.E. Schwab’s books including some of her earlier works (The Archived series) but I’m still planning to read her latest middle grade books eventually… If I can work up the courage to since it’s all ghost-y and stuff!

Pretty sure that when it comes to romances I’ve binged a large number of Mariana Zapata and Christina Lauren (including their much earlier and quite smutty romances back in the day)! 😂 I love these three authors so much and they’re always my go-to recs.

I realise that I’ve actually read all of Leigh Bardugo’s books, save for her latest two releases. I read her series years ago before knowing that such a huge book community existed online and that the books had such huge followings lol. Same goes for Laini Taylor! All I have to finish now is Muse of Nightmares… *cough*

Then of course there are my more ‘recent’ favourites: Jay Kristoff (& Amie Kaufman) and Neil Gaiman! I still have a lot of Gaiman to read although I’ve already read a fair few of his books. Of course I can’t wait to read more of Kristoff and Kaufman, too!

Who are some of your most read authors?
Would any of these authors make it onto your list?

  1. Kristoff and Kaufman made my list too! I only have a few more books by Kaufman I’d like to read before I finish all of her books!


  2. Love Neil Gaiman and currently making my way through Good Omens. Definitely need to pick up Michael Crichton and V.E. Schwab sometime soon!


  3. So many great authors on here. I read soooo many Roberts books from High school through college. I then took a break (I haven’t read any since then!) because I felt like so many of her books were the same thing over and over. LOL. I might have to give her a go again! I’ve seen so many people list Gaiman today.. I need to start reading his stuff! Great list. ❤


  4. Love Bardugo and Christina Lauren! I STILL need to read something by Zapata and Schwab. Soon! 😉


  5. SAME for Nora Roberts/JD Robb. I don’t know if I will ever surpass the amount of books I’ve read by her even though I haven’t read one in like 5 years just because she’s written so MANY books!
