Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish.
Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is one that I’ve always been curious about but have been too lazy to look up, and it’s: top ten most read from authors! Let’s make some discoveries today!
In order of how many books I own from them…
*Links on text will lead to my review/s (if applicable) and photos will link to the book’s GR page!
#1. Rick Riordan — 12 books
The Lightning Thief | The Sea of Monsters | The Titan’s Curse | The Battle of the Labyrinth | The Last Olympian | The Lost Hero | The Son of Neptune | The Mark of Athena | The House of Hades | The Blood of Olympus | The Lightning Thief Graphic Novel | Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods
Rick Riordan is my go-to author for amazing middle grade fantasies with shit loads of humor. Also, I have a huge crush on Percy Jackson. Like, HUGE. He’s my ultimate book boyfriend, I’ll say.
That aside, I really want to read more from Rick. I’m SO stoked for The Sword of Summer, and I’ll probably attempt to read The Red Pyramid some time in the future.
#2. Richelle Mead — 12 books
Vampire Academy | Frostbite | Shadow Kiss | Blood Promise | Spirit Bound | Last Sacrifice | Bloodlines | The Golden Lily | The Indigo Spell | Vampire Academy Graphic Novel | Frostbite Graphic Novel | Shadow Kiss Graphic Novel
Richelle Mead was one of the first authors I’ve ever read from. I adore her sense of humor, as well as her ability to make me ship all the ships. Plus, I can totally see myself in her characters! Hopefully I can read more books by her soon–anyone else excited for Soundless? Would you recommend her adult books to me?
#3. Jeaniene Frost — 9 books
Halfway to the Grave | One Foot in the Grave | At Grave’s End | Destined for an Early Grave | This Side of the Grave | One Grave at a Time | Up From the Grave | Once Burned | Twice Tempted
Ah, Jeaniene Frost. She’s the Queen of Witty Banter, Sexy Men and Angst for me. Her Night Huntress (CAT AND BONES FOREVER!) and Night Prince books were incredibly addictive! I ate them all up.
#4. Krista & Becca Ritchie — 9 books
You’ve been seeing KB in all of my TTTs, and that’s because they’re absolutely fabulous. They restored my faith in new adult by giving me all the feels, as well as some pretty awesome life lessons.
LONG WAY DOWN, PLEASE BE PUBLISHED ALREADY. Also pretty stoked for Infini and the Like Us series!
#5. Julie Kagawa — 9 books
The Iron King | The Iron Daughter | The Iron Queen | The Iron Knight | The Lost Prince | The Iron Traitor | The Immortal Rules | The Eternity Cure | The Forever Song
I’ve been following Julie Kagawa and reading her books since forever–I’ve definitely seen her development, too. Each book she wrote proved to be more awesome than the last!
Hopefully I can read Talon soon, and I’m excited for the third Call of the Forgotten book!
#6. Cassandra Clare — 7 books
City of Bones | City of Ashes | City of Glass | City of Fallen Angels | City of Lost Souls | Clockwork Angel | Clockwork Prince
I used to be a die-hard Cassie Clare fan, especially after I read the first three Mortal Instruments and the first Infernal Devices book. After that, I read three more books by her and didn’t love them as much. Maybe I
#7. Simone Elkeles — 6 books
Perfect Chemistry | Rules of Attraction | Chain Reaction | Leaving Paradise | Return to Paradise | Wild Cards
I have a thing for the “opposite sides of the track attract,” trope in romance, so it was no wonder I fell in love with Simone’s Perfect Chemistry trilogy. Her Leaving Paradise books were amazing as well, but unfortunately I wasn’t a huge fan of Wild Cards.
#8. Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl — 6 books
Beautiful Creatures | Beautiful Darkness | Beautiful Chaos | Beautiful Redemption | Dangerous Creatures | Beautiful Creatures: The Graphic Novel
Beautiful Creatures was one of my first gothic YA romances. I remember adoring the series at the time, although right now I really can’t remember too much about it!
#9. Miranda Kenneally — 6 books
Miranda is the perfect author to read from when you’re looking for something light, fun and very slightly angsty. She’s given me awesome characters to relate to, as well as relationships to be jealous over.
I can’t wait for the last installments of the Hundred Oaks series!
#10. Julie Cross — 5 books
Julie Cross is another one of my favorite NA authors. She writes the most realistic, sweet and swoon-worthy romances… And the most lovely, non-asshole-y love interests.
#11. Kasie West — 5 books
Other than her most recent release, I’ve adored all of Kasie West’s books. She writes about the most ship-worthy couples and awesome family relationships and friendships!
