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’ve read the most books by. Hmm… I can’t say there’s a single author I have read every single book by, but I’ve come pretty close! Here are some authors I certainly have read a lot of books by, including their books which I remember reading.

Ann Brashares

I read the first four of the Sisterhood series as a teen and the follow-up as well as one of her other novels in my early twenties.

Eva Ibbotson

I read one of her children’s books in my youth and her romances in my teen years. I have revisited some of them recently.

Vanessa Fewings

I read the Enthrall series and some of its companions in my mid-twenties.

Julia Quinn

I’m almost done the Bridgertons series! It’s very good and lives up to the hype.

Lisa Kleypas

I have so much more to read by this author because I hear ALL of her stuff is amazing. The Wallflowers series is pure gold.

Cara Dee

I read most of Cara Dee’s Touch novella series as well as a standalone and a duology by her. I read these in my early twenties and I actually forgot about the duology until I looked her up for this post!

Candace Camp

Candace Camp was my first Regency/Victorian romance author. She introduced me to what is now my favorite genre. I still have more books to read by her.

Lauren Willig

I love the Pink Carnation series and I’ve written about it before. Her other historical fiction is equally good, though I haven’t read it all.

Have you read any of these authors?

But wait! I only listed nine authors, not ten!

Well, folks, there’s a reason for that. When I originally compiled this list, I had a tenth author on there, who now is She Who Must Not Be Named in my book. J.K. Rowling has gone on a hateful Twitter spree lately, outing herself as a TERF (trans-exclusionary “radical” feminist – ain’t nothing radical about hating trans women). While I’ll always be a huge Harry Potter fan, I will no longer be giving her my money or promoting her books. Fan made events, merch, and content only. I am especially interested in supporting trans creators or those who donate to organizations that support the LGBTQIA+ community. I suggest if you are interested in reading her books you get them from the library or buy them used. Hate has no home on this blog.
