Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly topic hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provide a topic and you are free to use that topic and/or variations of that topic to make your top ten list. A full list of the weekly themes can be found here.
Here are the authors I’ve read the most:
- Elizabeth Wein (3 books) – I absolutely love all of her books. She tackles so many important topics from history that should be talked about. Wein takes pieces from history and uses the perspective of a teenager to tell the story. I’ve read 3 of her books – Code Name Verity, Rose Under Fire, and A Thousand Sisters. I recommend Code Name Verity to everyone I meet!
- Ruta Sepetys (3 books) – Another author does tackle important topics like Wein does. She also takes events from history and uses a fictional teenager perspective to tell the story. The Fountains of Silence has been on my TBR since it’s been out.
- Stephanie Perkins (4 books) – She’s one of the go-to feel good authors I absolutely love! Her Anna and the French Kiss “series” (companion series) are adorable and lovely.
- Rick Riordan (5 books) – I’ve been obsessed with Greek Mythology since I was in elementary school, so when these came out, I devoured the Percy Jackson series. I haven’t read his others, but I’ve been wanting to.
- J.R.R. Tolkien (6 books) – I’m sad to say I didn’t grow up reading The Lord of the Rings. I didn’t get to them til I was in college and fell in love with the world that Tolkien created.
- J.K. Rowling (7 books) – I’m not even going to say anything about her cause of what has happened. I’ve only ever read Harry Potter and am donating/selling the other books of hers I have.
- Lauren Oliver (7 books) – Her books are always so fascinating and leave me wanting more. I always have more questions than answers.
- Sarah J. Maas (8 books) – Celaena Sardothien is my favorite character in the world! I fell in love with her in Throne of Glass and continue to love her as well as the other cast of characters in this series. Maas’s A Court of Thorns and Roses series is just as amazing. The first books are always great and somehow they get better and better as you go further in the series.
- Cassandra Clare (11 books)- I definitely enjoyed The Mortal Instruments series, but the Infernal Devices is where Clare hits her stride and becomes such a better writer. With her Dark Artifices series, or at least the first 2, blew my mind, especially how she incorporated Edgar Allan Poe and his “Annabel Lee” poem. I do need to re-read the first two of the Dark Artifices, and then read Chain of Gold!
- Toni Morrison (12 books) – one of the greatest writers in the world. Hands down! I’ll fight people on this one. She’s amazing and tackles so many important topics surrounding African Americans, slavery, the Black experience in America. I cannot say enough good things about her. I wouldn’t read them all in one semester like I had to do for a grad class.
