Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  Each week there is a new topic and this week’s topic is:  Top Ten Authors I’ve Read The Most Books From

Robert Jordan – 16 books

These books were all a part of The Wheel of Time series which is one of my absolute favorites!

Nicholas Sparks – 16 books

I grew up reading and collecting these with my mom.

Charlaine Harris – 15

All of the books I have read of hers are from the Sookie Stackhouse series.  Although the end of the series was not my favorite, I’ll still love these books forever.

Janette Oke – 14 books

Another group of books I grew up reading with my mom.  I’m not into Christian Fiction anymore but her books were a big part of my childhood so they’ll stay with me forever as well.

Valerie Tripp – 13 books

She is the author of a few of the American Girls series.  I’ve read all of the Molly and Felicity books plus one of the Josephina series.

Laura Ingalls Wilder – 9 books

Another series of books that was a huge part of my childhood.  I’ve been in the mood to reread these lately.

Jane Austen – 8 books

She being my favorite author, I clamor to get my hands on anything and everything Jane Austen.  I’ve read her 6 full novels plus The Watsons, Sanditon, and Lady Susan.

L.M. Montgomery – 8 books

Yet another series that has had an impact on my childhood and my entire life.  Anne Shirley will always be a kindred spirit and bosom friend to me.

J.K. Rowling – 8 books

I first fell in love with Rowling with Harry Potter, as everyone else.  Along with The Casual Vacancy, I just love her writing.

L.J. Smith – 7 books

I have always had an interest in vampires so I finally read The Vampire Diaries books in the last year or two.

So those are the top ten authors I’ve read the most books from.  Were any of these authors on your lists this week?  Who are some of the authors you’ve read the most books from?

Day 19: Your favorite book of all time

This one was already kind of given away on Day 11.  Mansfield Park by Jane Austen.  I love the main character, Fanny Price.  The family members all have their own quirky personalities.  Definitely my favorite book of all time.

Day 20: A guilty pleasure book

I’m going to have to go with a series of books that were turned into a TV show.  I got into the TV show before I read the books.  I like the show a lot so I decided I wanted to read the books.  The show seems to be pretty loosely based on the books.  Different characters, physical descriptions, setting, etc.  I like the books but definitely don’t brag or broadcast that I like them.  What can I say?  I’m a sucker for vampires.
