About the meme:
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish, but is now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl! The read more about this meme, look at this page!
This week’s meme is Most read authors! There used to be a page on GoodReads with most red authors, I always liked looking at that list, but a year ago it disappeared.. So I made this list out of my head, not sure how accurate it is, or if I missed some obvious ones!
- Marissa Meyer – 7 books! Lunar chronicles (4+1 novella), Heartless, Renegades and Archenemies.
- Jay Kristoff – 8 books! Nevernight (3), Illuminea (3), Aurora rising (2).
- Leigh Bardugo – 9 books! Shadow and bone trilogy (3), Six of crows duology (2), King of scars, Language of thorns and Ninth house (DNF), Wonderwoman: Warbringer.
- Brandon Sanderson – 10 books! Mistborn (6), Warbreaker, The way of kings (2), Steelheart. (I’ve also read some novellas but idk how many)
- Julie Kagawa – 12 books! Iron fey (4), Talon (5), Shadow of the fox (3).

Wow you’ve read a lot! Awesome list! I need to read more of Schwab’s books definitely, and I think I should start reading Meyer and Kristoff! Sanderson’s books also sound cool. 🙂 Btw, I was royally pissed when they canceled that ‘most read authors’ feature on Gr! :S
Schwab, Sanderson and Kristoff are some of my favourite aurthors!
Right?! I loved looking through that list! I see no reason why they removed it!
Great list! I’ve read all of Bardugo’s Grisha books, but I still need to get to Ninth House.
Hope you like it!
Oh wow, that’s a lot of Cassandra Clare! I didn’t even realize she had that many books. I really need to read more of her work. 🙂
I was also surprised that I actually read all of them haha!
That “most read authors” feature would have been very helpful this week! VE Schwab made my list. I’m excited for her new book.
Me too! Almost time!!
I am impressed that you’ve read all 6 books in the Mistborn series. It took me 3 months to read the first 3 books in the series haha. Are the other 3 as good as the first set? I feel like V. E. Schwab is an automatic read for me these days.
Personally I really prefer the first three books! Not that the other three are not good, just different ahah!
Same for me!
Great list! Now I want to do this prompt lol
It was fun to figure out!
Fun list! I love the Lunar Chronicles books. I ended up doing a Goodreads export in a spreadsheet and then sorting and counting… what can I say, I love Excel!
Ooh smart! I had to recount so often, and then I remembered another author haha, pretty sure I still missed some..
We have a list of the same authors on our list!
Here’s mine: https://alexiophiles.home.blog/2020/07/07/top-ten-tuesday-authors-ive-read-the-most-books-by/
Will check yours out!
Great list! I love SJM and was bummed she didn’t make my list. I think I’ve only read 1 Cassandra Clare. Which book/series would you recommend?
The dark artifices is by far my favourite of hers!!
Great list! I cam’t believe I totally forgot about Lemony Snicket when writing mine!!
I feel like I forgot about some as well haha!
The Lemony Snicket books are so fun!
My TTT .
Great list! Some of these authors have been on my list for awhile now- I need to hurry up and read them!
I hope you will like them 🙂
I really wanna read Lemony Snicket!
If you’re into audiobooks, I recommend listening to them 🙂
This is an awesome list!
Clare has so many books! That’s a large number, haha.
I kept counting wrong, since she has so many haha!
Rick Riordan and Cassandra Clare are my most read authors too!
They both write so much! Luckily for us haha!
Leigh Bardugo is probably one of my most read authors right now, too (I’m at 6?? books by her, and have 2 more on my TBR). I also have to include Jenn Bennett, as I’ve read almost all of her YA contemporaries, I think! And I’ve read a lot of John Green and Taylor Jenkins Reid 🙂
She has so many good books!
I haven’t read anything by Jenn Bennett, but I’ve heard great things!
I really need to pick up more by Taylor Jenkins Reid!
Schwab is on my list – I’m reading The Invisible Life of Addie Larue right now.
Oh I hope you like it! I can´t wait to pick it up!
What a neat prompt! I love this. 😀 So many good authors in your list – and wow, so many CC books!
Thanks! Yes, she writes so many! And apparently I read them all haha!
I think Lemony Snicket would also be on my list!!
His series is so long haha!
