This week’s theme is: Top Ten Authors I’ve Read The Most Books From. Interesting!!! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. I always read throughout my life, but never as much as now, so I haven’t read a lot of books from the same authors…
Let the countdown begin!
1. Ana Maria Magalhães and Isabel Alçada (at least 13 books)
Who are these people, you ask? Well, every country has it’s own children’s books, right? In Portugal we have a series called Uma Aventura (An Adventure), written by these lovely ladies, that started out in 1982 and is still going strong, it now has 52 books! Yep, they’re very prolific! I stopped reading these a while back, and as these books are stuffed in a box somewhere in my storage room back home, I have no idea exactly how many of them I read, but I can remember reading at least 13, which makes them number one on this list!
2. J. K. Rowling (11 books)
Queen Jo Rowling gets a second place on the list (and this is without her books that I still have to read…). She gets this spot due to her 7 Harry Potter books, 3 companion books and Very Good Lives.
3. Cassandra Clare (10 books)
This one was obvious, and she’s not on top because I’m still to read the codex and the Shadowhunters Academy novellas, but as soon as her new book drops, she’ll probably be on top.
4. Dan Brown (5 books)
Dan Brown has 5 books on this list, the only one of his that I’ve not read yet is Inferno. The first four covers are in portuguese, because I read those books in my mother language. It was a crazy time when The Da Vinci Code came out, I read his previous 3 books soon after, and when The Lost Symbol came out, I was not willing to wait for the portuguese edition… it contributed a lot to me just reading in english nowadays.
5. Rainbow Rowell (4 books)
I’ve said that Rainbow Rowell is my spirit animal, I’ve only read 4 books from her, because that’s all there is 😦 !!!
Sarah J. Maas is a very recent love, and she will climb this list a few places in just a few weeks, as soon as I read The Assassin’s Blade and Queen of Shadows!
7. Stephenie Meyer (4 books)
The whole Twilight saga is four books. I actually read most of The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide, but I don’t think I finished it, so I’m not counting it…
8. Suzanne Collins (3 books)
The Hunger Games trilogy.
9. Jenny Han (2 books)
I’ve only read two books by Jenny Han, though I want to give The Summer I turned Pretty a chance…
10. Jane Austen (2 books)
I still have a few left to read… I intend to read at least one more of her books until the end of this year!
11. George R.R. Martin (2 books)
I’ve only read the first two books from A Song of Ice and Fire, though I want to finish the series! I started book 3 a while back, but wasn’t feeling it, so I dropped it, I might want to think about picking it up again.
It is likely that I might have miss someone in here, given than I don’t always recall books that I’ve read a while ago (and I’m not home to look at my shelf). I know I’ve read at least 2 Kathy Reich’s books, but I don’t even recall their names, so…
See you next week!
