This seems like a really fun meme, so here goes!
Thank you to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting this meme. Today’s list is Top Ten Authors I’ve Read the Most Books From. If we’re going based solely on numbers, the Animorphs or Boxcar Children books from my youth probably win (58 and more than 100, respectively). But in terms of books from my current bookshelf, here are my top ten:
Neil Gaiman (14): Author of urban fantasy/magical realism novels for adults and children.
Abigail Roux (14): M/M romance author best known for the Cut & Run series.
Anne Rice (14): Horror author whose been writing vampire novels since before you were born.
J.K. Rowling (12): Not just the Harry Potter author, but also writes delightful crime mysteries!
JRR Tolkien (11, plus several academic works for my degree): Fantasy, Middle- and Old-English poetry
Jasper Fforde (8): Alternate-universe surrealism/humor, absolutely brilliant!
Shakespeare (8 + sonnets): Should be mandatory reading for everyone.
Roald Dahl (7): The best children’s novels ever written, in my opinion.
C.S. Lewis (7, plus several academic works for my degree): Narnia, of course!
Jane Austen (6, but that’s her entire bibliography!): Classic, gorgeous romance novels.
There are a lot of authors who I really love, but they simply haven’t written more than three or four books, so this was actually a very difficult list to make. But I was watching The Simpsons while writing this post, hence the theme. Any of these authors that you’ve read?
