Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. I thought this would be a fun way to share a condensed version of potential rambles and thoughts that I have.
This Week’s Theme:
Authors I’ve Read The Most Books From
As you may (or may not) know, I was a pretty sporadic reader until I started up this blog circa beginning of 2014. Most of what I read now are actually debuts; trying to find more auto-buy status authors. That being said, I actually do own multiple books for many authors. I just haven’t gotten to them because when I bought them initially I was like “yeah! gonna read this soon!” and mood was like “lolnope” and here we are today with this post.
Patrick Ness – 5
A Monster Calls, More Than This, Chaos Walking Trilogy (though, I have not read the novellas).
Brandon Sanderson – 4
Steelheart, Mitosis, Firefight, Legion
Veronica Roth – 3
Divergent Trilogy (note: I was fine with the ending)
Roald Dahl – 3
James and the Giant Peach, The BFG, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and a special shout-out to the Gremlins film
Margaret Atwood – 2
Handmaids Tale, Oryx and Crake (which I don’t even know why I didn’t continue reading since I did enjoy this book albeit it being my independent novel study in school paired with Ayn Rand’s Anthem. Wait, i know why, I was probably too busy playing Ragnarok, War3 (the original DOTA, yeah?), and Neopets or something…)
Suzanne Collins – 2
2/3 Hunger Games Trilogy; which I also watched Mockingjay: Part 1 before reading it. Oops?
Neil Gaiman – 2
Rick Yancey – 2
The Fifth Wave, The Infinite Sea
Maybe it’s the commitment to trilogies/series that’s like “omg so daunting” because I do like the idea of binge-watching television…but it’s definitely not the same as binge reading LOL. It’s funny because I encourage so many people to binge read but I don’t do it myself. Yikes–I’m such a hypocrite.
