Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I’ve Read the Most Books By

Top Ten Tuesday NewTop Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Authors I’ve Read the Most Books By. Goodreads used to have a feature where you could see a list of your most read authors, but unfortunately this was discontinued last year. So I had to manually search for authors I’ve read the most books by in my Read shelf. A lot of these are from various book series.

J.K. Rowling – 8 books

I’m guessing most of us have read the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. Besides the 7 original books, I’ve also read Very Good Lives which is nonfiction.

George R.R. Martin – 7 books

I highly recommend George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series. However, it’s still incomplete! The Winds of Winter is the forthcoming (hopefully soon) next installment.

Jane Austen – 6 books

sense and sensibility

Jane Austen is my favourite author so it’s no surprise that she appears on this list!

Philippa Gregory – 6 books

The Kingmaker's Daughter

I read all of the books in The Cousins’ War series by Philippa Gregory after watching The White Queen TV adaptation. It’s safe to say I was fascinated by the powerful Plantagenet women each of her historical fiction novels are based on.

Stephenie Meyer – 5 books


The Twilight books are huge, but I devoured them (get it?) Will I also read Midnight Sun? You betcha a sparkling vampire I am.

Roald Dahl – 5 books

Fantastic Mr Fox

I was a fan of Roald Dahl’s books as a child, especially Fantastic Mr Fox.

Alice Oseman – 4 books

Heartstopper Volume 3

Alice Oseman is one of my new favourite authors. I love the Heartstopper graphic novel series and her novels are also on my TBR.

Sue Townsend – 4 books

The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 ¾

So far I have read 4 books in the Adrian Mole series by Sue Townsend. I would like to read more of them, that is if I can find the rest of the books in my local libraries.

Mhairi McFarlane – 3 books

Who's That Girl

Love Mhairi McFarlane’s novels! She is a brilliant romance author and I can’t wait to read more from her.

Alison Goodman – 3 books

The Dark Days Club

Alison Goodman has written The Lady Helen series which is a delicious blend of historical fiction and fantasy. The final installment, The Dark Days Deceit, is on my TBR. I think she is quite underrated as an author.

Which authors have you read the most books by? Have you read any of the books on this list? Let me know in the comments and feel free to link your Top Ten Tuesday post!

  1. I actually almost forgot about Fantastic Mr. Fox until I was counting up my Dahl novels (7 read, it turns out). And then I had the sudden and vivid memory of our teacher reading it aloud to our class. It is a very fun memory.
