A long time ago I did a Top Ten of Authors I Own the Most Books of, and today it’s time to do a Top Ten of the authors I’ve read the most books of, including short stories and non-fiction books! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the people of The Broke and the Bookish. Let’s see which authors I’ve read the most books of, shall we?!
J.K. Rowling (12) – I have read her Harry Potter series, of seven books. Then I’ve read the companion novels – The Tales of Beedle the Bard, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Quidditch Through the Ages – and The Casual Vacancy. I have also read The Cuckoo’s Calling which she published under a pseudonym, Robert Galbraith.
Lauren Oliver (10) – The entire Delirium series of three books; including the novella’s Alex, Annabel, Hana and Raven, separately. Then I’ve read Panic and the Panic Origin story and Before I Fall.
Rick Riordan (10) – I’ve read the entire Percy Jackson series of five books, three of the Heroes of Olympus books, The Demigod Files, and The Maze of Bones, the first book in the 39 Clues series.
Sarah J. Maas (9) – Her three Throne of Glass books, A Court of Thorns and Roses, and The Assassin’s Blade which includes five novella’s (that I’ve counted separately).
John Marsden (8) – I’ve read the entire Tomorrow When the War Began series, which has seven books, and the first book in the Ellie Chronicles.
Marissa Meyer (8) – I’ve read the first three books in the Lunar Chronicles series and Fairest, and the novella’s that have been brought out so far: Carswell’s Guide to Being Lucky, Glitches, The Queen’s Army, and the Little Android.
Leigh Bardugo (7) – The entire Grisha Trilogy, including the novella’s: Little Knife, The Tailor, The Too-Clever Fox and The Witch of Duva.
Veronica Roth (6) – The Divergent Trilogy, including Four, Free Four and the first novella (which I read separately before Four became a book).
J.R.R. Tolkien (5) – I have read the Lord of the Rings as three separate books, The Hobbit and the Legend of Sigurd and Gurdún.
Kiera Cass (5) – The three books in the Selection series before it became a five-book series. And two novella’s – The Prince, and The Guard.
So these are the authors I’ve read the most books of. I’m honestly not surprised about most of them, apart from Kiera Cass (because I am not a super fan of her books, to be honest). Oh well.
