Top Ten Tuesday

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is Top Ten Authors we’ve read the most books from. It’s hard to tell on this one — Goodreads will only show me the authors I own the most books by, but let’s have a wild stab at it…

  1. Jacqueline Carey. I own and have read almost all her books, which makes at least… 13 in total. That’s a good number!
  2. Guy Gavriel Kay. I’ve only got one book by him I haven’t read yet, River of Stars.
  3. Robin Hobb/Megan Lindholm. I’ve read books by her under both identities, and there’s at least 13 on my shelves that I know I’ve read, so she’s probably high on the list.
  4. J.R.R. Tolkien. I think I’ve read everything put out by either him or by his son after his death. I’m not sure how much that is, but I’ve read his academic work as well, so we’ll say he counts.
  5. Jo Walton. I’ve read all but her most recent book, so she definitely counts.
  6. Garth Nix. I haven’t even read all his books, but there were the seven Keys to the Kingdom books, the Old Kingdom series, another series… Yep, probably the most read author.
  7. Tad Williams. I’ve read two quartets by this guy, he’s got to qualify.
  8. Brian Michael Bendis. Ultimate Spider-man and some other comics.
  9. Alistair Reynolds. Long due a reread, but yeaaaah, I read most of his books at one point.
  10. Brian Jacques. I used to read the Redwall books exhaustively. I haven’t touched them in a long time, but there were at least a dozen. This one has to count! Tempted to do a nostalgia reread, too.

What about everyone else? This was surprisingly hard to think of…

  1. Doesn’t GR also show you your most read authors? I have a statistic like that in the My Books tab.. It doesn’t count rereads though, so for me, it’s off by quite a bit.
    My top 3 are Katharine Kerr, Kim Harrison and J.K. Rowling.

    I love your list! Robin Hobb, Tad Williams, Jacqueline Carey, … all lovely authors!

  2. I hope to read more Garth Nix. I started reading the first book in Keys to the Kingdom (it was included in this free sampler I got from the bookstore) and really liked it, although I never did get to finish it.

  3. omg, I haven’t read ANY OF THESE. Well. I did read a few Tolkien’s but I think I should try them on audio because I just didn’t do well with reading them with my own eyeballs. Idek what it is, but audio = me loving books. x)
