Hello there! Today is a really fun topic, and one that I hadn’t ever really thought about. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl where each week there is a topic, and you make a list with books that fit the topic. This week’s topic is authors I’ve read the most books by.
I have read… a lot of books by Rick Riordan. I’m actually rereading a lot of them right now. Today I actually went to the library to pick up some of my holds, and with those books, the ones I already had checked out and the ones that I own, I have all five of his mythology series!!!
In total, I have read more than twenty books by Rick Riordan.
Gertrude Chandler Warner is the author of a series that I adored when I was younger: The Boxcar Children!
I read so many of these, probably dozens of them, and I never got tired of reading about Henry, Jessie, Violet and Benny’s adventures.
Now, I don’t think of them as highly, and they’re definitely not the most incredibly written books, but there are so many of them, and I loved reading them so much!
On my kindle, which I got in fourth grade, I think I had an ebook with the first 12 books, and I reread that collection over and over and over…
On Goodreads, it says that there are 155 books in the boxcar children series, and I don’t think I’ve read all of them, but I’ve definitely read dozens of the books.
My sister was the one who really loved the A to Z mysteries, but I did read them all at some point! There are the twenty A to Z mysteries, plus the other series like the calendar mysteries, and then also the special books. All in all, I’ve read a lot of books by Ron Roy!!!
I just went through and marked a ton of his books as read on Goodreads, and just seeing the titles brought back so many memories!!
I also remembered the capital mysteries, about K. C and Marshall, which I really loved 🙂
Also the main characters of the A to Z mysteries are Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose. If you were wondering. I just felt like putting that in.
Kirby Larson is the author of some of my all-time favorite books. She wrote Hattie Big Sky, its sequel, Hattie Ever After, Dash, and a bunch of other amazing books.
She has written a ton of historical fiction, which is my favorite genre, and she might have written a duology (is that a word) about a young girl who goes to Montana to prove up on her late uncle Chester Wright’s claim. She also loves writing. Also I pretty much listen to the two books on look at night to help me fall asleep.
So, you should definitely go read her books because they are AMAZING!
Also, I mentioned Dash above, but it’s about a Japanese American girl named Mitsi during World War Two who is forced to leave behind her dog when she and her family have to go to an internment camp.
One thing that I think Kirby Larson does really well in her books is that she talks about more serious topics, like anti-german sentiment during WWI and the Japanese internment camps, in ways that younger readers can understand.
I think that I’ve read about six of her books, so not a huge amount, but still a few.
I have to say, it was kind of challenging to come up with all of these authors! There aren’t a lot of authors that I’ve read a lot of books by.
