Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I’ve Read the Most Books From

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. Today’s theme was:

Top Ten Authors I’ve Read The Most Books From

I made it to 9 authors. Most of the authors I’ve read several books from are in the 4-5 book range, and there’s several of them, so I just kept it at 6 and up. I’m counting comics are separate books, so I have two authors that have A LOT of books.

The Falls     The Walking Dead, Volume 1 cover     Saga Volume 1     The Truth about Forever     Once Upon an Alphabet

Ian Rankin – I’ve lost count, but it’s somewhere in the 30s. I’ve read all of his books except the one out later this year and the short story collection, The Beat Goes On, which I NEED. My favorite: The Falls

Robert Kirkman – I’m counting each comic as a separate book, so I’ve read 143 issues of The Walking Dead, and I haven’t read it but own the first volume of Outcast, which is the first six issues. My favorite: I’m going to go with volume 1 – that’s the one that hooked me

Brian K. Vaughan – 39: 29 issues of Saga, 10 issues of Y: The Last Man. My favorite: Ditto above, volume 1 – the first comic I read

Sarah Dessen – 12 books? My favorite: The Truth about Forever

Oliver Jeffers – I think it’s 11 books? My favorite: Once Upon an Alphabet (favorite book he illustrated is hands down The Day the Crayons Quit)

The Humans by Matt Haig     Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling     Uglies by Scott Westerfeld     The Dream Thieves

Matt Haig – 8 books and I own two others, which I can’t believe I haven’t read. My favorite: The Humans

J.K. Rowling – 7.5 books (I didn’t finish The Casual Vacancy yet). My favorite: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Scott Westerfeld – 7 books. My favorite: Uglies

Maggie Stiefvater – 6 books. My favorite: The Dream Thieves

  1. I love Scott Westerfeld! I first read the Uglies series back in middle school and whenever I would try to explain the plot all my friends we’re like, “what?” I actually love the series so much that I bought the companion reference novel, Bogus to Bubbly, which is something I NEVER do! I think it was pretty good, if I remember correctly. I’ve wanted to reread them for a while now, but I’m kind of scared that I won’t like them as much and my whole like will be ruined. 😦

  2. I just bought my first Ian Rankin, how proud are you?! Well, it’s for my dad (the newbie bibliophile!) but I’ll get my hands on it at some point. And I NEARLY bought Matt Haig the other day. Soon, Stef, soon. R x

  3. Yay for Sarah Dessen! She made it onto my list too, but I haven’t read as many as you have. Surprisingly, JK Rowling didn’t make my list. I think that’s just because I counted books since I started blogging though.

  4. I barely made it to 10- I added some authors that I loved when I was in middle school lol.
    Great list! I really want to read The Raven Cycle, so hopefully I’ll get into that soon
