My Top 10 Most-Read Authors

It's been a while since I've done a Top 10 Tuesday post with The Broke and the Bookish, and Goodreads makes today's theme so easy! So here are the 10 authors I've read the most books from (since 2008, when I started using Goodreads, unless the book was one of my favorites so I added it anyway, e.g. Harry Potter or The Bridge to Terabithia):

Jodi Picoult | 22 books
I've read all her books! Except Off the Page, the sequel to Between the Lines, both of which were co-written with her daughter. Favorite Picoult novel: The Pact.

Clive Cussler | 18 books
I used to read my dad's copies when I was younger. I've probably read more than 18, but these were the only ones I remembered enough to add to my Goodreads. Favorite Cussler novel: Atlantis Found.

Nicholas Sparks | 9 books
That's funny, because I don't even particularly like Nicholas Sparks! (My average rating for his books is only a 2.2.) But I did really enjoy Message in a Bottle.

J.K. Rowling | 8 books
I've read the Harry Potter series and A Casual Vacancy, and I hope to read her Robert Galbraith novels soon. Favorite Rowling novel: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

Lauren Oliver | 6 books
I've read all her adult and YA books except Before I Fall, which is her debut, so I really need to get on that! Favorite Oliver novel: Delirium.

Meg Cabot & George R.R. Martin | 5 books each
Favorite Cabot novel: The Princess Diaries. Favorite Martin novel: A Storm of Swords.

John Green, Chris Bohjalian & Rainbow Rowell | 4 books each
I've actually read four books each from 10 different authors, but these were the three authors who had not written a series, so they will round out my top 10. Favorite Green novel: The Fault in Our Stars. Favorite Bohjalian novel: Skeletons at the Feast. Favorite Rowell novel: Eleanor & Park.

Who are your favorite and/or most-read authors? Just to clarify, Jodi Picoult is also my favorite author.

Linking up with The Broke and the Bookish for Top 10 Tuesday.
