I’ve read the most books from these authors–since 2010

toptentuesday2Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme I take part in when I can think up answers! It’s a great meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish blog. Every week they suggest a new book-related topic. It’s not only fun to think about my list, but to read what other people come up with!

This week we’re talking about the authors we’ve read the most books from. I decided to limit the time frame from 2010 to now. My reading tastes tend to change every few years. I’ve shown the authors who are new to me since I started my blog in 2013. Those numbers show that I’m adding mysteries into my fantasy and science fiction reading.

Then I included the authors from whom I’ve still read at least one book since I started my blog and then added in the books I read since 2010. I was still reading more romance in 2010. But now Mary Balogh who writes historical romance would be the only one who might still be on my list based on my blog stats!

Anyway I had fun delving into my numbers and making this list . . .

(P.S. I forgot I didn’t pre-schedule this post! This morning I’m reading the fourth book–Dark Ascension by M.L. Brennan–an author who will be on my future lists.)

The authors which are new since I started my blog in 2013:

What authors have you read the most books from?

Author: Jan

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. Deborah Crombie would probably be on my list as well as Mary Balogh. Eloisa James is an author I’d really love to read more of. I’ve read 2 books by her and enjoyed them both. Great list!

  2. Jim Butcher made my list as well! Gotta love those authors with nice long series:). Andrea Host is an author who has been on my radar and who I’ve heard very interesting things about but haven’t yet gotten to. Any advice on where to start?

    1. Yes, it’s nice to have a long series list when you really like the author. Andrea Host writes both fantasy and science fiction. My favorite of hers is the science fiction Touchstone trilogy. I love that series. If you like fantasy better I like Hunting and Champion of the Rose–although I like all the books she’s written!

  3. I love to see which authors bloggers read most often. Andrea K. Höst is a new name for me; Scalzi is on my list of authors to try, Butcher did nothing for me (granted, I’ve only read 1 book), James I haven’t read, and the rest on your list are authors I’ve enjoyed.

    Fun post!

    1. It is fun to see what authors other bloggers read, isn’t it, Bea? Andrea K. Höst is a really good author if you like fantasy or science fiction and Scalzi is so good. I would recommend either of those authors to anyone!

  4. If I’d made a list this week, Ilona Andrews and Patricia Briggs definitely would have been on it! While I’ve never read Deborah Crombie’s books, I often recommend them to library patrons who’re looking for a good mystery. I should follow my own advice and pick one up some time!
