Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s topic is Authors I Have Read the Most Books By.

I am definitely not going to tally up how many books I’ve read by each author! But, off the top of my head, and after a quick sort through Goodreads, here are some of the authors I tend to read the most books by, in no particular order…

  1. Sophie Kinsella
  2. Alafair Burke
  3. Hazel Gaynor
  4. Laura Griffin
  5. Sarah Jio
  6. Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
  7. Mary Higgins Clark
  8. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa
  9. Gene Luen Yang
  10. Orson Scott Card (no longer reading his books)

Some of these authors wrote a ton of graphic novels (Yang, Aguirre-Sacasa) that instantly showed up on my Goodreads, and others I will continue to faithfully follow until they stop writing books altogether (Kinsella, Burke, Griffin) but that will never happen, right? 😉

What are some authors you especially like? Tell me in the comments or drop me a link to your Top Ten Tuesday post so I can check it out!

    1. Although she passed away earlier this year, she is known as the queen of suspense and writes mostly thrillers. I would recommend “Death Wears a Beauty Mask” or a more recent title, “Kiss the Girls and Make Them Cry.” Thanks for stopping by! 🙂


  1. Aw, but tallying is half the fun! For instance, even though she didn’t make my list, I can tell you that I’ve read 7 Phyllis Reynolds Naylor books (all standalones) and 4 of Sophie Kinsella’s. 🙂

    I’m always interested to see new names come up on these lists, though, and there are a lot here. Hazel Gaynor and Laura Griffin are both new-to-me names who look like they have interesting stuff.

  2. I’ve never read Mary Higgins Clark either, but I do have Kiss The Girls and Make Them Cry on my TBR! I’ve also never read Sophia Kinsella, but I have 2 of hers on my bookshelf, I Owe You One and Surprise Me- have you read those? Which do you recommend I read first?

    1. I would recommend I Owe You One over Surprise Me (the plot is strong in my opinion) but both are great books that had me laughing out loud. Some of her older stuff is really great, too, in particular Twenties Girl! Thank you for stopping by! 🙂


    1. I’ve heard a lot of readers say that! I try to read a mix of newer/older titles by her. Right now I have The Cradle Will Fall on my shelf that I’m hoping to read soon. Thank you for stopping by! 🙂
