This weeks theme:
ALL TIME FAVORITE AUTHORS
There is no order to this list. But if I needed to order them I could. I feel like I am missing several authors on this list.
The read count includes novellas.
1. J.K Rowling
Read Count: 7
The Harry Potter Series made me a reader. I think this series effected me in more ways than that; I even wrote a Sentimental Square post on that. I have yet to read any of her other books, but I plan to eventually.
2. Jennifer L. Armentrout
Read Count: 17
I think Jennifer L. Armentrout is my most read author. I don't think I have met one of her books that I haven't liked. Her books are utterly addicting. I love that she writes amazing YA paranormal as well as New Adult contemporary. I will buy anything that she writes. I don't think I need to read the title or the blurb. I haven't been keeping up with her releases. I need to catch up on them.
3. Alyssa Rose Ivy
I found Alyssa Rose Ivy's books last year and basically binge read as many as possible over the summer. Her books take me one day (two at max) to read. All of her books are new adult and she just writes some swoonworthy characters.
4. Erica Crouch
Read Count: 5
I just started book number 6 from Erica, Engage. I love the Ignite series. Erica's writing is so beautiful and her plots are so unique. Madly, Deeply, her retelling of Annabel Lee, made me cry so much.
5. Stephenie Meyer
Read Count: 6
The Twilight Saga was what launched my love of YA. I also adored The Host. That book was incredible and for all you Twilight haters (and shamers) this book will change your mind on Stephenie Meyer's writing ability.
6. Holly Black
Read Count: 7
I always forget that Holly Black wrote the Spiderwick Chronicles. I love her YA as well. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown was fantastic and I read it in one sitting. The Darkest Part of The Forest was also great.
7. Sarah J. Maas
Read Count: 3
Sarah J. Maas is the least read author on this list, but ACOTAR pushed her into the all time favorite list. I still need to read Heir of Fire and the Assassin's Blade, but I know I will love them.
8. Marie Rutkoski
The Winner's Cure and The Winner's Crime are too of my favorite books. I absolutely adore this series and I am dying for book three. I need to read more of her books asap.
9. Richelle Mead
Read Count: 11
I am a few behind on the Bloodlines books, but the Vampire Academy is one of my all time favorite series. I really want to dive into Richelle's adult books, soon...soon.
10. Rick Riordan
Read Count: 7
I loved the Percy Jackson series! I have started the Heroes of Olympus series, but I haven't had the time to finish it just yet.
