Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Authors I’ve Read the Most Books By

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.

We are at Tuesday again. Hard to believe it is July. It's like this year is flying by despite all the chaos going on around us.

Thanks to That Artsy Reader Girl for such a great topic this week. This should be a fairly easy list to compile.

I've been reading books by Charlotte Hubbard/Naomi King since 2012. Her Home at Cedar Creek series introduced me to Amish fiction, which has become one of my favorite genres.

Though I had read a book or two by Karen White prior to her Tradd Street series, it was definitely the one featuring the quirky Realtor who sees dead people that made me a fan. 

I have always loved cozy mysteries, so when Duffy Brown asked me to read Iced Chiffon I jumped at the chance. I've enjoyed many of her books since. I hear there is a new book in this series coming out in August. I can't wait!

When I was promoting books in 2008, Marilyn Meredith toured with Smell of Death, one of her Rocky Bluff P.D. police procedurals written under her pseudonym F.M. Meredith. Then came Judgment Fire, a Deputy Tempe Crabtree novel. I've got to catch up on both these series, but I've read several of them.

I've read several fiction and nonfiction books by Kathi Macias. She has been a mentor to me in many ways. I've missed a couple of her Christmas stories and two books from her Quilt series, but I've read the others. 

For many years, I read every new release from C.W. Gortner. I started his Spymaster Chronicles series, but haven't finished it yet. I really need to catch up with his books.

Beverly Stowe McClure and I have been online friends for many years. She writes for teens and young adults. I've enjoyed many of her books.

Pandora's Temple is the first book by Jon Land that I read. Then I was introduced to his Caitlin Strong series. I've read several and have more at home. 

I fell in love with Wilder's work in my late teens and early twenties. In addition to her Little house books, I've read other collections of her work. 

What are some authors whose work you have read a lot of? Have you been able to stay up to date with all their new releases?

Great list! I've read a lot of Laura Ingalls Wilder's books too, though I don't think I ever read beyond the Little House books.

Laura at Library of Clean Reads said...

I read every Laura Ingalls Wilder book as a child! I read a few C.W. Gortner books too.

The Little House series was delightful.

My TTT .

RS said...

Oh, Karen White! I've only read The Lost Hours from her, but that was enough to make me instantly a fan of her writing style and subject matter. I was just looking at her back catalog the other day, and Tadd Street caught my eye.

I agree, it feels like this year is just zipping by! Great list. I've also read a lot of Laura Ingalls Wilder's books.

My TTT list!

Cheryl said...

Sounds like Laura Ingalls Wilder is a popular choice. Nicole, I went ahead and read the Caroline and Charlotte series after the Little House books. They are very similar to the Little House series.

RS, the Tradd Street series is definitely worth checking out.

Thanks for visiting, everyone.

I read the Little House on the Prairie books when I was younger, but I can't remember how many I actually got through.

I totally forgot the Little House books!!

Duffy Brown said...

Wow! Thanks so much for including me in your reading list! I am overwhelmed to be in such amazing company.
That you enjoy the Consignment Shop Mysteries makes my day. Hugs and hugs.

I read a few Laura Ingalls Wilder books when I was a kid. I’m tempted to reread them and see what I think of them as an adult.

Thanks for stopping by, Duffy. I've missed reading your Consignment Shop series and am glad a new book is due out soon.

Aj, it is definitely a different read when you read them as an adult, but I still enjoyed Wilder's keen eye for detail.
