Top Ten Tuesday #11

top ten tuesdayIt is Tuesday so I am bringing you another Top Ten Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is created by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week we are asked about Top Ten Authors I’ve Read the Most Books From. Which was interesting to look into for myself. I’m not even sure if I can remember. I know I’ve read a bunch of books by some authors when I was younger, but I can’t honestly say how many I’ve read of some.

Series: Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles, xxxHolic, Legal Drug, portion of Cardcaptor Sakura, portion of X/1999, the first volume of xxxHolic: Rei 
When it comes to manga I’ve thoroughly enjoyed CLAMP’s work. CLAMP started as a 12 member dōjinshi circle. Currently there are only 4 members.

2. Cate Tiernan – 14 books
Series: Sweeper
Apparently I’ve read all but the last book of the Sweeper series. I’ll be honest, I do not remember enjoying this series. My mom got me one of those subscriptions to it  over 10-15 years ago. so that I would receive 2 books every 3 months or something like that. So I read them because of that. The first few were okay, but the rest dragged on for me. I only read them because I was getting them.

3. Rick Riordan – 12 books
Series: Percy Jackson and the Olympians, 2 companions, The Heroes of Olympus
I’ve been enjoying his books a lot lately, and I’m really excited for the new series. I’m not sure if I will get Greek Heroes though as I wasn’t to fond of Greek Gods. But what appeals to me the most is the sass, mythology and the characters.

4. JK. Rowling – 7 books + 3 novella’s (hogwarts library)
Series: Harry Potter
It is Harry Potter.

5. Cassandra Clare – 9 books
Series: The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices
Cassandra Clare was pretty popular last year when the last book of The Mortal Instruments was released. I jumped on the bandwagon at the time and got all the books. The Mortal Instruments weren’t for me. The last three books I did not enjoy too much. But I really liked The Infernal Devices. For the moment though I will not read anymore books by Cassandra Clare. I’m tired of the Shadowhunter world.

6. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle – 9 books
Series: Sherlock Holmes
I didn’t initially think of him as an author I’ve read a lot of until I realised that The Complete Sherlock Holmes is a bind-up of all 9 books. So technically I’ve read 9 books by him. Go me~

7. George R.R. Martin – 5 books
Series: A Song of Ice and Fire
And massive those 5 books were…

8. Richelle Mead– 5 books
Series: Vampire Academy
I’ve yet to finish the last one of the series. The last two books have put me of a little so we’ll see when I get to it.

9. Jonathan Stroud – 4 books
Series: Bartimaeus Sequence
Of course he had to be on here. I’m hoping that after September this number will be higher as I’ll be starting his other series soonish.

10. Authors from my childhood
Thea Beckham, Tais Teng, Jacques Vriens, Jan Terlouw, Carry Slee, Enid Blython, etc
I read a lot of books when I was younger. A lot of these authors had a lot of books in my local library so I must have read a bunch of them. I couldn’t honestly tell you how many of each of the above mentioned authors.

  1. It’s kind of reassuring that you didn’t like Greek Gods either. I absolutely loved Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson series and his Heroes of Olympus but I just didn’t love the first few chapters of Greek Gods so I put it down. Your explaination for J.K. Rowling is perfect. Great list ❤
