Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week it’s the top ten authors I’ve read the most books from, some of which surprised me. All author photographs from Goodreads.
Top Ten Most Read Authors
1. Matt Shaw
Book Count: 19
Favorite Book: Happy Ever After
I wasn’t surprised that Matt Shaw was in my list of top read authors, but I was surprised that he was my most read one because he’s the author I discovered most recently. Happy Ever After was one of the first books I read on my Kindle.
2. Neil Gaiman
Book count: 18
Favorite Book: Sandman or Mirrormask
One of the authors whose talent I envy the most.
3. Marissa Moss
Book count: 15
Favorite book: Amelia’s Boredom Survival Guide
I read pretty much every book in the Amelia’s Notebook series as a kid.
4. Bill Watterson
Book count: 12
Favorite book: The Essential Calvin and Hobbes
I love Calvin and Hobbes!
5. JK Rowling
Book count: 11
Favorite book: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
The author that sparked my imagination as a kid, and continues to inspire me as a writer.
6. Scott Westerfeld
Book count: 10
Favorite book: Uglies
I think reading Uglies sparked the beginning of my YA phase as a teenager.
7. Chuck Palahniuk
Book count: 9
Favorite book: Invisible Monsters
He may be one of my favorite writers, but I still somehow manage to misspell his name every time!
8. John Peel
Book count: 8
Favorite book: Book of Names
Another surprise! I loved the Diadem series as a teen.
9. Stephen King
Book count: 6
Favorite book: Carrie
I saw Carrie the Musical once. I thought it was fantastic.
10. Jeff Vandermeer
Book count: 6
Favorite book: Annihilation or The Thackery T. Lambshead Pocket Guide to Eccentric and Discredited Diseases
I only discovered Jeff Vandermeer last year, but I wish I could have known about his fiction sooner!
