January 24, 2017: Top Ten Authors I’ve Read the Most Books From 

Going through my Goodreads, I noted that most of the books I read were well before I noticed that New Adult (NA) was an ever-growing genre targeted toward people in their early twenties to mid-thirties.

This new batch of authors is slowly making a name for themselves, so maybe my list of authors will grow in a few years. So, here is a list of the Top Five authors I’ve read the most books from in this new-to-me genre.

1.  Nora Roberts  I have read nearly everything Nora Roberts has written and just as many novels with her pen name J.D. Robb (the In Death series), I will continue to read whatever she wants to come out with in the future.

2. Phyllis Reynolds Naylor Alice, I love Alice. I found Phyllis Reynolds Naylor at 14 in High school, and I have read each Alice book from then on. It’s the only book I can say I read as I was growing up.

3.  Julia Quinn, I love historical romance novels. I had a good two years where I read nothing but historical fiction. Now, I go back to it every once in a while after exhausting Julia Quinn and Mary Balogh. Haven’t someone good enough to replace them.

4. Carly Phillips  This was a great stage where I was in the mood for witty, charming HEA novels. Carly Phillips is a good re-read author.

5. Penny Reid I recently just found her novels, and I enjoyed them so much, she is both funny, and her characters are quirky, and I’ve started a knitting club because of her Knitting in the City series.

Please share at least one author you’ve read the most books from below; I’d love to add more books to my list!

    Hi! I like the Alice books too! Louise Rennison and Sarah Dessen are two of my most read authors–at least based on the number of books by them that I own! 🙂

    Wow, I actually haven’t read any of these authors. /o\

    One of my most-read authors is Juliet Marillier. She writes fantasy, but they’re also historical romances, so you might like them! I recommend starting with Daughter of the Forest. 🙂

    This is a great idea for a list! I love finding favorite authors and reading their entire backlist. Some of my most-read authors are Emily Giffin, Kristin Hannah, and Kate Morton.

      I’ll have to look into Kristin Hannah and Kate Morton, I haven’t read either of their books. I’ll have to check them out.
