It’s time for another edition of Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish :) This week’s topic is about authors we’ve read the most books from. I have quite a varied list: some classic authors, a few YA authors, and even a children’s book author.
Top Ten Authors I’ve Read the Most Books From
Ann Brashares – I’ve read 5 of her books: the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series plus Sisterhood Everlasting.
Jane Austen – I’ve read all 6 of Austen’s completed novels: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey, and Persuasion.
Lee/Elle Strauss – I’ve read 6 of her books: Clockwise, Perception, Sun & Moon, Flesh & Bone, Heart & Soul, and East of the Sun.
J. K. Rowling – I’ve read (and re-read) all 7 books in the Harry Potter series.
Karen Witemeyer – I’ve read 7 of her novels: Short-Straw Bride, A Tailor-Made Bride, To Win Her Heart, Head in the Clouds, Stealing the Preacher, Full Steam Ahead, and A Cowboy Unmatched (which is really a novella).
L. M. Montgomery – I’ve read all 8 Anne of Green Gables books. I still want to read her other books as well!
Laura Ingalls Wilder – I’ve read her 9 Little House on the Prairie books.
Nicholas Sparks – Every now and then I go through a Nicholas Sparks phase ;) I’ve read 9 of his novels: Dear John, The Lucky One, Safe Haven, The Rescue, The Guardian, A Bend in the Road, The Best of Me, The Choice, and The Longest Ride.
William Shakespeare – I’ve read 14 of his plays: Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Macbeth, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Othello, Much Ado About Nothing, King Lear, The Taming of the Shrew, Twelfth Night, As You Like It, Antony and Cleopatra, The Winter’s Tale, The Merchant of Venice, and Richard II (plus dozens of his sonnets).
Dr. Seuss – I loved Dr. Seuss growing up (and I still do), and even though I couldn’t give you the exact number of books by him that I’ve read, I know it’s more than 14 :)
