10 Authors I’ve Read From Most

I’m not usually one for memes of any kind but this week’s topic (hosted by The Broke and the Bookish) spotlights author’s from whom I’ve read the most books. Since I know it’s interesting for me to see what authors other people enjoy, I decided to pop in on this one. Now, the image above isn’t exactly a true representation, mainly because some of the novels counted here are actually short stories which were later bound together in one novel. Behold the true count:

  • Rick Riordan, 15: This actually surprises me every time I see him as one of my most-read authors. I’ve continued to enjoy his series (despite my complaints) and am still looking forward to his latest novel, The Sword of Summer.
  • John Flanagan, 13: Mr. Flanagan is in the unique position of being the one author I’ve read the most novels from in a continuous series. I actually need to read most of the Brotherband Chronicles seeing as I own it (everything that’s been published thus far at least). His Ranger’s Apprentice series is fantastic and definitely a favorite of mine. I like seeing him as one of the top authors on this list.
  • Tony Abbott, 12: Ah, a look back at my childhood. The Secrets of Droon remains one of my highest recommendations for children. This series was a significant building block when it came to developing my love for reading.
  • Dean Hughes, 10: I’m not a big reader of historical fiction, but his Hearts of the Children and Rumors of War series were fantastic. The latter takes place during World War 2 and the former is a sequel series which takes place during the 1960s.

  • Cassandra Clare, 9: Most of these were the Magnus Bane short stories, which I read individually instead of waiting for the novel bind up. I’d started reading them before the hardcover release was announced so it was cheaper for me to keep buying them instead of waiting and spending $20 as well as sacrifice precious shelf space. Honestly, most of them were a bit of a let down. If you’re going to read anything from Clare, I’d suggest that you start with The Infernal Devices, simply because it’s been her best series so far.
  • Tracey West, 8: I’ve only read West’s Pixie Tricks series, but it was a beloved favorite from my childhood and the first series I ever read (and completed). I remember the day my mother gave the series away… I still wish I had it.
  • Stephenie Meyer, 7: Ah, the pre-blogging days. What is there to say? Yes, I read it and I liked it.
  • J.K. Rowling, 7: Harry Potter for the win. I read this series later than some but I’m glad I went back and read some novels that I was actually told I didn’t need to. (How could you say that about Harry Potter? People need to read them all.) No one who has touched the world of Hogwarts can say it isn’t a magical place to read about (no pun intended).
  • Brandon Mull, 6: Hello, Fablehaven series. We’re talking about one of the best middle grade series ever published. I can’t even tell you how happy I was when I found out he was writing a sequel series. I tried his Beyonders series and it wasn’t bad, I just couldn’t get into it.
  • Kiera Cass, 6: Ah, yes. The Selection series is my fluff series. I’ll probably read anything from it because it is (generally speaking) a relaxing and quick series to read.

Who are some of the authors from whom you’ve consumed the most novels? Have you read any of these series?

  1. Cassandra Clare is pretty high on my list! AND JOHN FLANAGAN. I looooved Rangers Apprentice when I was younger, but I didn't like BrotherBand. I don't know if I just grew out of his style or if the books didn't click because….because…WHO KNOWS. I'm a bit sad. I'll still be reading the Crowley/halt book when it comes out though. 😀

  2. Not sure which author I've read from the most, but I think it's Rick Riordan then Stephenie Meyer. Twilight is actually the series that introduced me to YA and it'll always be special for me no matter how much people bash it. I think it's funny how Rick Riordan is my #1 most read books because I recently read his Percy Jackson series this summer (the first five, not the spin off).

    1. I enjoy reading the Twilight series from time to time. It was one of the first YA series I read as well. You should read Riordan's other series! They're good.
