Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we can all share lists.
Successfully and unsuccessfully, but who’s counting?
Oh right, this week’s Top Ten Tuesday is.
- Rick Riordan (9 books)
I’m still hopelessly behind on finishing this series especially since I only have the last book to read (I’m eyeing Blood of Olympus uneasily as I type this) but I really do love this series and all of the characters with all my heart. I grew up with them!
2. J.K. Rowling (7 books)
Nobody’s surprised, right? This is literally my childhood. Also, still waiting for my Hogwarts letter, *waves fist at the air hoping for an owl to land on my arm*. I love sassy Harry and the unbreakable friendship between him, Ron and Hermione. I have too much love for her writing and everything and everyone else besides.
3. Cassandra Clare (5 1/2 books)
Haven’t read the last book yet and I’m not sure if I’m going to. It’s been too long since I read any of her books and I probably would need to reread the entire series and that’s terrifying to me. I tried reading Clockwork Angel but I only read half of it. Many people loved her second series more so I’m going to try to give it another go.
4. Stephenie Meyer (4 books)
Say what you will about Stephenie Meyer, but things do improve as the Twilight series go on.
5. Suzanne Collins (4 books)
Besides the Hunger Games trilogy, I also read Gregor the Overlander waaaaaay back. I remember liking it well enough.
6. Cornelia Funke (4 books)
I have fond memories of reading Thief Lord; Scipio was my secret book boyfriend. I also remember reading Dragon Rider but to be honest, I can’t remember much about it other than someone named Sorrel and a boy named Ben. But I absolutely loved Inkheart, but not so much Inkspell. I couldn’t bring myself up to read Inkdeath because come on, that title is sad enough.
7. Becca Fitzpatrick (4 books)
I read the entire Hush, Hush series and I couldn’t enjoy them. I finished it because I held out hope that I would eventually warm up to it (I didn’t). There was that one book when Nora lost all of her memories and I felt like it was a rehash of all of the books before it.
8. Veronica Roth (3 books)
Again, I finished the series because I have this compulsive need to complete what I started but I was very meh about the books. I never connected with the characters.
9. Rainbow Rowell (2 books)
Eleanor and Park was a cute read despite some problems that I had with it. I liked Fangirl a lot though.
10. Marissa Meyer (2 books)
I completely read her books in the wrong order: going from Cinder to Fairest but hey, I don’t regret it. Reading Levana’s story was entertaining in a morbid sort of way. Levana’s insane, you guys.
There’s my TTT this week. Which authors have made a comfortable living space on your book shelves?
