Authors I Read Multiple Times During 2020 | #TopTenTuesday 272

Today we are meant to be talking about resolutions and hopes for 2021 for Top Ten Tuesday (as always hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl). But I always talk about my goals and resolutions for the blog and reading in my own time here so I decided to pick out another topic that has to do with 2020 since that is also what the next few prompts focus on.

I thought it would be good to see what authors I read multiple times during 2020. In some cases I did review the books but in other cases I did not. So its good to give them some more attention here.

Terry Pratchett (9 books)

It will probably come as no surprise that I read 9 books by Pratchett in 2020 as I hosted a discworld reading challenge (which by the way is back this year…) Eight of these were Discworld books and one other was a book with quotes that were mostly Discworld. Pratchett is one of my favorite authors but I still have so much to read. I tend to have him on a list like this every year.

Seanan McGuire (9 books)

A bitter surprise might be Seanan McGuire. I’ve been reading her Wayward Children novella’s but had not read anything else by her. But I started the October Daye series and read about 8 of them. Its not my favorite series ever but at the same time I am deep in now, and I do enjoy it. And I have more as ebooks and physical books to read.

Shanna Swendson (8 books)

Yes hello miss Swendson. I finally got myself the last few of her Enchanted Inc books to finish it up. I stil haven’t actually finished it but I did reread all my copies and then started reading the remainder of the books. I really need to finish this series this year.

Ilona Andrews (7 books)

Long series do tend to make it easy to get on list like this. In this case I started reading their (writing duo) magic bites series when I was having a harder time picking up high fantasy. It was fun to blaze through up to the sevent book and then I grew pretty tired of it. I’ll probably finish it at some point but not anytime soon I’d imagine.

Martha Wells (5 books)

Of course with Network Effect coming out I had to reread the first 3 novella’s, finally read the last and then grab a hold of the full novel. I probably wasn’t the only one in 2020.

Patricia Briggs (4 books)

Around the time I started the October Daye and Magic Bites books I also started with Mercedy Thompson by Patricia Briggs. I’d always been a bit hesitant because I wasn’t sure I’d love it but I did. I am going to take my time with this series. No need to rush, right?

Alice Oseman (3 books)

Here of course it were The Heartstopper graphic novels that I had to read. I actually reread two and then threw the last one right after it. Graphic novels are so easy to reread that I probably will do it again when I get the fourth installment when it releases.

Genevieve Cogman (3 books)

Another new author I started in 2020 was Genevieve Cogman and her Invisible Library series. A series I had my eye on for a while. I certainly enjoyed the first three books, they are great fun and fast reads.

Rhiannon Williams (3 books)

You will probably have seen this author mentioned a few times in 2020 if you visit me outside of top ten tuesday. I read her middle grade trilogy Ottillie Colter this year and was quite taken by it. I highly rec it.

Gail Carragher (3 books)

When I finally got myself book 2 of the Parasol Protectorate series I was eager to read on. I reread Soulless and read books 2 and 3, and might I say they have left me with a big urge to stab one big werewolf. And not in a kind way. I haven’t had the urge to pick up the other books because of it or Gail Carragher would have ended up a bit higher.

  1. Great list! I need to continue with the October Daye series at some point and I really want to try the Mercy Thompson and Murderbot series. I love Gail Carriger’s work–I can always rely on her books to cheer me up!

  2. Great list! I agree, October Daye isn’t my favorite of McGuire’s series, but it’s still enjoyable enough that I’ve read all the books released so far. I like her InCryptid series better, and hope to read more of that series this year. (And I love the Wayward Children series too, of course. But I’m caught up on those.)

    Yup, I read 5 Martha Wells books last year, too. Had to re-read all of Murderbot before reading the new one! 😀

  3. I’ve definitely read piles and piles of Pratchett, MacGuire and Carriger too, but it’s been a while since I read a lot of discworld. I really need another reread.

  5. I’m not surprised to see Terry Pratchett here, of course. xD Oooh, but Genevieve Cogman! The library just got in a couple of her newer Invisible Library books, and I keep eyeing them thinking that I should most definitely go ahead and start the series already lol.

  6. Wow, I haven’t read *any* of these authors and that’s sad. Haha, I do have a lot of them on my TBR though! I’ve heard so many good things about all of these authors’ books and I’m super keen to try them (hopefully soon)!

  7. Oh, alweer een leuke terugblik boekenlijst die ik zelf ook wel zou willen invullen. Ik heb er echter nog een twee à drietal te gaan dus ik vermoed dat ik het nadien maar even voor bekeken zal houden. Anders ben ik eerder een terugblikblogger ipv een boekblogger. 🙂
