Top Ten Authors I've Read The Most Books From


Hi everyone! It's been a few weeks since I've done a Top Ten Tuesday post but I couldn't resist this topic! It was fun counting up which authors I've read the most and then seeing how many I still have to read from my favorites all at the same time. I was even surprised a few times along the way.

I've counted all the works I've read from these authors, including novellas and companion books. If the author published it, it counts as a book in this list.

Erin Hunter 33 - 'Erin Hunter' is actually 5 authors working under 1 pseudonym. When I first discovered my love for fantasy books, I stumbled upon her Warriors Series at my local bookstore. From the covers, they look like middle-grade books, but there's a lot of violence to them, so to me they're YA. There are 4 main series, each containing 6 books, then there are super editions which focus on different characters and even field guides. I love stories featuring magical animals so I gobbled all of these up!

J.K.Rowling 10 - The entire HP Series proper, along with the three companion books ♥ I look forward to reading A Casual Vacancy and 'her' Cormoran Strike trilogy and seeing my total grow up to 14 :D

Sarah J. Maas 10 - The Throne of Glass Series + novellas and ACOTAR ties Queen Maas with Queen JKR, which is pretty sweet in my opinion ;) Once both of her series are completed and out, her numbers will climb even higher!

Kelley Armstrong 10 - I've only read books and novellas pertaining to her Darkest Powers Series, and that's not even her biggest series! By the time I'm done with her, the total will be much more impressive :)

Brandon Sanderson 8 - I feel like this number should be much higher but I've only read the three original Mistborn books, the two Stormlight Archive books that are published at the moment, Steelheart + two novellas. Aaaand according to my tbr shelf, I still have five more urgent ones to get to and two novellas. Not to mention all the books that aren't out yet...

C.S. Lewis 7 - His entire Chronicles of Narnia Series which was totally worth it, despite the last two being a major bummer.

Angie Sage 7 - Her Septimus Heap Series, which I had my ups and downs with to say the least. I read them as part of my  'Post-Potter Depression' regime but I haven't gotten around to her spinoff series yet.

Karen Marie Moning 6 - This number includes the five original books in the Fever Series + one novella. I haven't gotten around to her newer books in the Fever Series though. I want to, but at the same time I'm kind of scared to

Lucy Maud Montgomery 6 - Which include her Anne of Green Gables saga, minus the last two which featured a new main character I just couldn't get into. I have yet to read her Emily of New Moon trilogy though but I want to!

Gene Luen Yang 6 - The first two trilogies of the Avatar:The Last Airbender spinoff manga, at three books apiece. The last one is on my wishlist as we speak and I'm hoping to order them in a.s.a.p.

*Honorable Mentions go out to: Jennifer L.Armentrout (6), Stephenie Meyer (5) and Darynda Jones (5)*

  1. Great list! Brandon Sanderson also made mine this week (of course, haha). I wish I gave concrete numbers on my list this week to go with the authors, I think I got a bit lazy in properly looking them up, haha.

  2. This is a cool list, Micheline! Rowling would definitely be included in my list - especially if we counted re-reads! But I'd have many more romance authors, their books are so short compared to fantasies and so easy to binge-read.
    I've only read one Armstrong series, a YA thing that was ok but not great but I've heard that I really should read her adult UF.

  3. I have only read Kelly Armstrongs YA stuff but my BFF loves her women of the otherworld series.

  4. Ahh, the Warriors Series series! So much nostalgia, I really want to finish that series someday but I'm a little worried that I won't enjoy them as much anymore. Maas really has ten novels/novellas out already? I didn't even realize there were that many already-awesome! Not that you can ever have too many Maas books ;) Great picks!

  5. Hehe, Gene Luen Yang should be landing on my list of most read authors very shortly. XD I got my first volume of the Avatar manga yesterday and cannot wait to get started because obviously, one can never have enough Avatar in one's life! :D

  6. YAY for Karen Marie Moning and Narnia, Micheline! There are several authors on your list I've never heard of, and 33 books?!? even if several authors are using the same pseudonym, that's quite a feat!
    I hope you've had a fantastic week.
