Top Ten Tuesday - Authors I've Read the Most Books By

Today I'm linking up with Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl which is all about lists.  Since lists are one of my favorite things this is one of my favorite linkups!  Today's topic is Authors I've Read the Most Books By.

1.  Agatha Christie - This was a given.  The woman wrote 85 books and I've read them all multiple times.

2.  Nora Roberts - I've read 38 books by Roberts since I joined Goodreads in 2011.  I'm sure I've read more but that's how many I'm showing as read.

3.  Patricia Wentworth - I'm showing I've read 10 but I know I've read more then that but this is one of my favorite classic mystery authors.

4.  L.M. Montgomery - I've read 33 L.M. Montgomery books and loved each and every one of them.  

5.  Barbara Michaels - Michaels' somewhat Gothic-y mysteries are my  very favorite rereads.  I love them and the various history connections they have.  I want to do a massive reread soon!

6.  RaeAnne Thayne - I've read 14 contemporary romance books by Thayne which surprised me though I do love her books!

7. Lynn Cahoon - I've been reading her cozy mysteries for years but I was surprised to see that I've read more then 20 books by her!

8.  Jill Shalvis - Shalvis has multiple series with 3 that are pretty long running so it's not shocking that I've read 22 of her contemporary romances.  What's crazy is that I know she has a ton of books that I still haven't read!

9.  Jenn McKinlay - Between her multiple cozy mystery series all of which I enjoy (especially the Library Lovers mysteries) I'm not shocked I've read 13 of her books.  I'm only surprised I haven't read more!

10. Heather Graham - I was surprised to see I had read 23 books by Graham - especially since I feel like I have SO many of her books that I'm behind on!  But I do love her paranormal suspense.

What authors have you read the most books by?


  1. Hi there Katherine! I knew you would have Agatha Christie on your list! So do I!! No surprise there.... And LM Montgomery.... Aaaah such lovely memories.

    Hope you are doing good and your boy is okay.

    Have a good week. Here's my TTT

  2. Nora Roberts was at the top of my list too!

  3. Nice list, Katherine! I'd definitely share the top two with you - Christie and Roberts. If you add in J.D. Robb with Nora Roberts, that would be a lot of books that I've read and reread. Oh, and definitely Barbara Michaels. Again, if you add her Elizabeth Peters persona - more books. Hope you and yours are doing well and your boy is managing his treatments. I've certainly been thinking and praying for you guys. Take care.

  4. Oh wow, you've read all the Christie books?! I'm slowly working my way through Agatha Christie's books, and loving every read I have with her.

  5. Oh I am sooo not surprised about Agatha Christie! Nice list. I decided to do some TTT posts and particpated this week and last. My first times :-)
    I only have one Patricia Wentworth but I like her style.

  6. I've read all of Agatha's books and all of the Krewe of Hunter books, I'd have to add Ilona Andrews, Dannika Dark and Jayne Ann Krentz and all of her names. LOL

  7. My mind went blank when thinking on this question, totally forgot about Heather Graham!

  8. Nice list of authors -I see a few I like too. Wow you could probably win on a quiz show about Agatha Christie.

  9. Jenn McKinlay and Cahoon are two cozy writers I want to read.

  10. I'm not surprised by most of these! I am amazed that you've read so many books by one author, though. This topic made me realize I haven't read more than 20ish by any one writer. Weird.

    Happy TTT (on a Friday)!

  11. Well, Agatha Christie was no surprise! 😁 I should also get back to re-reading the Green Gables books. 📚✨
