Today on Top Ten Tuesday we’re talking about most read authors! I actually wasn’t sure who my most read authors were so I had so much fun trolling through my Goodreads to work it out – lets dive in!
1. Cate Tiernan
My number one most read author is Cate Tiernan. It probably comes as no surprise, her Sweep series has fifteen books and I’ve read her Balefire series too which I absolutely loved. I’ve still to read her Immortal Beloved series as well as a few others so her number could rise even higher by the end of the year.
2. J K Rowling
This is another one that is probably not a surprise. Between the HP series, the companion books as well as the screenplays for Fantastic Beasts, she ends up at eleven books.
3. Jay Kristoff
Jay Kristoff is one of my favourite authors so this is another author I expected to see on this list. I still have to try out his Lotus War series as well as finish off a few others too!
4. Leigh Bardugo
Another favourite author who I absolutely love. I still have two of her books to read – Crooked Kingdom and King of Scars. I’m determined to get to them before the end of 2020.
5. Maria V Snyder
I love the Study series with all my heart and it’s a series I recommend to everyone. I have a whole bunch of books by Maria V Snyder that I haven’t picked up yet, but they’re definitely high on my priority list.
6. Mark Lawrence
Every book that I’ve read by Mark Lawrence I’ve absolutely loved. I still have a few of his books to read but I have every confidence I’m going to love them just as much as the others.
7. George R R Martin
A Song of Ice and Fire is my most favourite series of all time and I absolutely adore the world of Westeros. I’ve read quite a few books by George R R Martin, both in and out of Westeros and I’ve loved them all.
8. Neil Gaiman
Neil Gaiman is one of those authors that I really like and then it completely snuck up on me how many of his books I had actually read. I love The Ocean at the End of the Lane and there are so many books in his back catalogue that I want to get to one day.
9. Katherine Arden
I’ve read everything Katherine Arden has every written and I think every book has been a five star read. All five books were utterly brilliant and I can’t wait to read more from her in the future.
10. Seanan McGuire
Seanan McGuire is another author that has kind of snuck up on me. Up until this year I’d never read any of her books and then I picked up Every Heart A Doorway and preceded to binge the entire series. I’m definitely keen to try more from her too!
So those are my most read authors! Who made your most read author list?
