Take Ten: Authors I have read the most books
This week, the subject over at Broke and Bookish is top ten authors I have read the most books. So, without further adiue, here is my list!
1. Lousia May Alcott
I read most of her novels when I was in high school and adored them! I really need to try to make time to read them again.
2. C.S. Lewis
I've read the bulk of his books, since Lewis is a thought provoking author. He wrote a variety of books and managed to make all of them interesting.;)
3. Lisa Wingate
I discovered her books in the last 4-5 years and have enjoyed most of them tremendously (there was one or two that I didn't care for). I appreciate that she usually brings a social issue to light in each of her stories.
4. Julie Klassen
While I didn't particularly care for Girl in the Gatehouse, I have enjoyed most of her other books. I think the one pictured above is my favorite to date.;)
5. Susan Meissner
Another author who writes a variety of stories, but seems to have found her niche writing stories split between the past and present day. I'm enjoying the above book right now.;)
6. Jane Austen
I've read all of her books at least once.;)
7. Herve Tullet
My daughter and I have read a lot of his books, but this one remains our most favorite.;)
8. Susan Boynton
Is it sad that this one should be #1?;) Between how many of her books we have read, and how many times we have read each one... I may have several of her books memorized now.;)
9. Keith Baker
Another children's author who we have read ridiculous amounts of his books.;)
My daughter and I both enjoy these books! They are a fun way to get children started on the classics at a young age.;)

Haha! Sandra Boynton should have made my list too. And Dr. Seuss. I have read more by both authors in the last four and a half years than any other books.ReplyDelete
Someday I would like to read everything Jane Austen's written. Sadly, I don't think that would put her on my most read list still.
Hurray for kid books! We haven't quite reached the age where my daughter appreciated Dr. Seuss, but I'm sure when she does then he will be on this list as well.;)Delete
This list made me realize there aren't a whole lot of authors I stick with....
Ooo.... LOVE the BabyLit books! I wish I had known when my girls were younger....ReplyDelete
Austen made my list as well. :-)
My TTT: http://www.allensteachingfiles.com/2015/08/top-ten-tuesday-authors-ive-read-most.html
Aren't they fun board books? I like that my daughter already likes Jane Austen's stories. Lol.Delete
Thanks for stopping by!
The BabyLit books are great! I just stumbled upon these a few weeks ago!ReplyDelete
A month or two ago I started hearing about Wingate - she sounds good but I haven't read any of hers myself.
Check out my TTT.
They are great! I love how colorful they are.:)Delete
I hope you getthe chance to read her books, since I usually enjoy them immensely! I stayed up way to late reading The Storykeeper.;)
I love the idea of BabyLit, such a good idea for getting kids into the classics, but do Romeo and Juliet still die at the end? I've read quite a few of the Chronicles of Narnia books, really enjoyed them. I'm such a sucker for a fantasy world! Happy Reading! :)ReplyDelete
You know, I can't say since we haven't read that one. I've been kind of hesitant to pick that one (or Anna Karenina) up.;) I would imagine not, but think how sad kids will ne when they grow up and discover the real ending!Delete
I love Narnia. It got me started on my live of fantasy style books.;)
You have some of my very favorite books on this list!!! Love Julie Klassen especially, though she got beat out by some more prolific authors on my own list :)ReplyDelete
I love coming across fellow bloggers who read a lot of the same books. Thanks for stopping by and commenting! I will have to check out your list.;)Delete
C. S. Lewis almost made my list too. Great authors here! My TTT had a lot of throwback to my preteen and teenage years.ReplyDelete
I think it is hard to beat some of those series and authors read in the teen years, since I had more time to read then.;)Delete
C.S. Lewis' books are wonderful. At some point, I need to finish his Narnia series (which is actually all I've read) because they are so good; I was reading them in correlation with the film releases. :)ReplyDelete
You do need to finish reading them!;)Delete
Are they going to finish making the films?
His other books are amazing as well. I especially love Mere Christianity and Till We Have Faces.
I read all the Narnia books a MILLION times over when I was a kid! :D BEST. BOOKS. EVER.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!
I wish I could say that I read them a million times over.;) It took me a couple of books to decide I liked them as a kid, but now they are a favorite! I look forward to reading them with my kids.;)Delete
