This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is Authors I’ve Read the Most Books By. This is such an interesting prompt and after looking through my Goodreads read shelf, I was surprised at some of the authors that made the cut! To make it more fair, I didn’t include manga or comic book authors because by sheer number of volumes many of them would make this list. I also didn’t count single short stories in my count, just full novels or collections of stories.
Melody Carlson: This was a surprise because I’ve only read one of her books recently, but I’ve apparently read around 33 of her books. So. Many.
Lisa T Bergren: It wasn’t as surprising that I’ve read a lot of books by Lisa, but the number (31) surprised me because I didn’t even realize there were that many!
Ted Dekker: Again, like with Lisa, I’m not surprised I’ve read a lot of books by Ted Dekker (those high school years, man), but the number (30) just seems so high!
Ron Roy: This name isn’t quite as familiar, but he has a whole series of mysteries for kids that go through each letter of the alphabet. So of course he makes the list with 26 titles.
Rick Riordan: Uncle Rick, why you write so many books?! I’ve read 23 books by him and that’s not even all of the ones I own or that have been published!
Beverly Cleary: I was so happy that she made the list! I love all the books I’ve read (20), and I really need to read the ones I haven’t yet.
Lemony Snicket: When it comes to children’s book series, it seems like I read them all. I know Snicket has a few other books, but I haven’t read them so it’s just 14.
Donita K. Paul: Again, I was surprised that there are even 13 books by Paul out there, but she has several series and picture books, so it makes sense.
