Agatha Christie | 20 Books
If you’ve been following me for a while, then this probably doesn’t surprise you at all. I’ve been reading Christie since I was 16 (I’m now 24), so she’s been one of my favourite authors consistently for a few years now. This is where I take a moment to brag about being related to Christie on my Grandma’s side…it’s my greatest achievement.
Lemony Snicket | 15 Books
Again, this should come as no surprise. A Series of Unfortunate Events was the series that got me into reading, well before HP. I owe this series a lot.
Cassandra Clare | 15 Books
I’ve got a bit of a complicated story with Cassandra Clare. I really enjoyed the first three Mortal Instruments books, loved the Infernal Devices, and then hated City of Heavenly Fire so much that I vowed to never read her books again. Then Lady Midnight came out and I fell in love with that series, and then Chain of Gold recently so yeah.
Rick Riordan | 13 Books
You might have guessed by the fact I named my cat after Percy Jackson, that I’m a bit of a fan. Riordan’s books just make me infinitely happy. That being said, I am kind of behind with them so I do eventually need to catch up.
William Shakespeare | 12 Books
Not someone I talk about a lot, or maybe ever, but yeah I’ve read a few Shakespeare’s. I studied three during high school, and then went on to read the rest for myself. I just recently read Twelfth Night and loved seeing the original source material for She’s the Man, which was one of my favourites movies as a teenager.
Richelle Mead | 12 Books
I have to admit that I’m not really a fan of Richelle Mead anymore. I loved Vampire Academy as a teenager, and still have a special place for it in my heart. But I haven’t liked any of her other books since.
Margaret Atwood | 9 Books
Atwood has been another long-term favourite of mine. I was lucky enough to see her speak earlier this year before we all went into self-isolation and it was just incredible.
Maureen Johnson | 9 Books
I don’t think I’ve actually read any Maureen Johnson for probably about five or six years now, but there was a time that she was my favourite YA author. She took a little break from releasing anything for a while, but I do want to eventually get to her new series.
Daphne du Maurier | 8 Books
Du Maurier is another author I’ve been a fan of for a really long time. I first read My Cousin Rachel back in 2013 and just fell in love with her right away. I did a post in May over on Of Wonderland ranking her different novels if you’re interested in hearing my full thoughts.
Leigh Bardugo | 8 Books
I think right now the only Bardugo I haven’t read is her Wonder Woman one, but I don’t necessarily think of her as a favourite author. I really enjoy her books for the most part, but I’m not quite as ride or die as some of her fans.
