Hello, and welcome to this weeks Top Ten Tuesday! TTT is a blog meme hosted by the lovely The Broke and the Bookish in which bloggers are given a topic and create their own top list.
This weeks list is Authors I’ve Read the Most Books From. This is a hard one, because there’s so many series that I’ve read that went on forever! There’s probably going to be a big list of series writers, so buckle up and enjoy the ride.
Don’t forget to add your most read authors in the comments, or add a link your your TTT!
There were 52 books in the Animorphs series; plus 4 chronicles, 4 Megamorphs, and 2 Alternamorphs (choose your own adventure). Then there was the Remnants series which only had 14 books, so 76 books in all by K (Katherine) A. Applegate. I think I read a couple from her Everworld series as well, but I didn’t like it as much.
2. R. L. Stine
There’s no telling how many of his books I’ve read in my lifetime. I wasn’t a big fan of Goosebumps, though I did read quite a few of them, but the Fear Street Saga was my life in Elementary school.
3. William Shakespeare
I haven’t even realized how much of my shelf is dedicated to some sort of Shakespeare. It doesn’t really help that a new obsession of mine is the new Star Wars by William Shakespeare books. They’re hilarious and completely entertain me and totally fall under the Shakespeare category.
4. Sarah Dessen
I don’t know, how many books has she written so far? I like her books. They’re not great; just simple little romance/realistic fiction. They make great summer by-the-pool-reads.
5. Rachel Caine
She’s the author of the Morganville Vampires, my favorite vampire series! It my favorite simply because of Myrnin, the vampire/mad scientist with his vampire bunny slippers and a pet spider (Bob). There were 17 books in this series, plus she has the new Ink and Bone series I’ve got to start.
6. Garth Nix
I got into Garth Nix starting with his Seventh Tower series (6 books), and then later started his Keys to the Kingdom books (7 books). Strangely enough, I haven’t gotten around to reading the Abhorsen series yet.
7. Stephen King
I like his older works (Misery, Pet Cemetery, Cujo, It, Carrie, The Shinning) way more than his newer works.
8. Shelly Crane
I love Shelly Crane’s books. There’s 6 in the Significance series, 4 in the Collide series, 3 in the Devoured series, and 3 in the Wide Awake series. The last Significance book disappointed me, but not enough to completely turn me away from the series.
9. Cassandra Clare
Oh boy. How many book spin offs from one series can you get? I read all The Mortal Instruments and 3 of The Infernal Devices, and a few of The Bane Chronicles before I finally gave up on this series on the ridiculousness of the spin-offs. It’s still a good series though.
1o. James Patterson
I’ve read a few of Patterson’s books, but the main ones are from his Maximum Ride series (not including the last one that just came out). I had to finish the series, but honestly the books kept getting worse the further I read into them.
