"And then my eyes were drawn to the shadows behind her. I stared at the man's crumpled body in a daze. His limbs were sprawled in funny, permanent angles. I walked closer. I didn't want to, but I couldn't stop. I walked until I stood over him, his vacant brown eyes staring up at me.

A neat hole was blown through his forehead." p. 30*

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

This week's topic is: Top Ten Authors I've Read The Most Books From

*in no particular order
**this very well might go hand in hand with the authors I OWN the most books from too!

1. MARIA V. SNYDER--she has 13 novels out (not including short stories and novellas), from my recollection, and I've read 12 of those! One was MG and I'm not much of an MG reader.
2. JENNIFER L. ARMENTROUT--yeah I started losing count of how many books she has out! LOL! I want to say I've read 18, or soon to be 20 once I read The Return and The Dead List! And again, not including novella and short stories with this number!
3. VICTORIA LAURIE--she has about 23 books and I've read 20, as I am once again behind! By 2 books in the Psychic Eye Mysteries and 1 book in the Ghost Hunter Mysteries!

4. KELLEY ARMSTRONG--started losing count of the amount of books she's published! A LOT basically! That's including ALL the novellas and short stories she's written too! I've read 29 of her books, including the soon to come Deceptions!
5. RACHEL VINCENT--Rachel has about 17 books published and I've read 15 and hoping to get to those last 2 soon!
6. KERI ARTHUR--yet another author with too many books to count! She's had a lot of older series too before she became more known with the Riley Jensen series. I've read 25 of her books and still need to read the last Dark Angels book, but other than that, I'm pretty caught up with what I have and want to read!

7. RICHELLE MEAD--I've read nearly all her books, except I gave up on Gameboard of the Gods after finishing it. And since I've read Soundless already that makes it 31 books I've read by Richelle Mead! This includes her graphic novels too, there's 7 of those, 3 Vampire Academy and then 4 that were Dark Swan comics.
8. KIM HARRISON--I've read all her "Kim Harrison" books. I think she has 3 under Dawn Cook, but I never read those. I've read all 21 of her Kim Harrison ones! Plus a few novellas and short stories scattered throughout in the different anthologies and such!
9. CHLOE NEILL--Chloe has 15 books out as of now, and I've read them all! Plus a few novellas here and there too!

10. JEANIENE FROST--I've read 13 of her published books! Though if The Sweetest Burn releases on time this year and I have time to read it, it will be 14! ;) And naturally, I'm on pins and needles waiting for IAN'S book!!


  1. oh yay for Jeaniene Frost...I just love her books!!

  2. Ooh, I can't wait to read Dangerous Lies. Becca's books are amazing.

  3. Great teaser- why is he dead. Loved the list, a few were new authors to me, a few would have been on my list too.

    My Teaser

  4. Crazy, but you haven't heard of any of my authors and I haven't heard of any of yours! The book world is very big. And I'm glad.

    Here's my Top Ten Authors I've Read the Most.

  5. Wonderful stack of books. Many names are familiar to me. Happy reading, Jessica.

    sherry @ fundinmental My TT

  6. I have read only three of these authors. I have to say I was hesitant for Jennifer Armentrout but dang it I tried it and her lux series just broke me into a million a pieces. I need to read more by her.

    i did not know a new thriller was coming out from fritzpatrick. Must get.

  7. Holy wow batman! This makes me feel like I really need to start finishing my series more lol. That's a lot of books. Great list.

    Christina @ Books & Prejudice

  8. I love your selection of books. Must have some of them. And your teaser is chilling!

    My TT -

  9. That teaser is wicked. Here is mine

  10. I'm going to take a wild guess hear and say he's dead... ;)


  11. That's one amazing list and full of authors that I really love myself too!

    My TTT  - Thea @ Gizzimomo's Book Shelf

  12. I've only read Richelle Mead titles. And I haven't read anything from the other authors. Great choices, though. I've heard great things about those authors.

    My TTT

  13. Your teaser sounds great. I like your list of authors you have read the most books by too. Since I began reading them in the 1980s and am still reading them today, Nora Roberts and Jayne Ann Krentz/Amanda Quick/Jayne Castle would be my top two for sheer number of books. My YA teaser this week comes from Fairest by Marissa Meyer. Happy reading!

  14. Great teaser! Haven't read anything from this author and the reviews I read about Hush Hush were not that good. I guess I have to give it a try and see for myself!

    Here's my first TT:

    Athina @ Between my Lines

  15. IAN'S BOOK!!! I seriously can't wait. And the last Vlad book... damn, I'm going to miss him. I freaking love JF. :)

    TTT @ Krista's Dust Jacket

  16. Great list!!! We've read a lot of the same authors. I need to finish catching up on a few of these series. I'm so behind..
    Alright your teaser is good. Adding Dangerous Lies to my Wishlist. I have to know why he has a hole in his head....oh the wait is a killer.
    I hope you have an awesome week.
    Happy reading!

  17. This is like the best list ever! Jennifer L. Armentrout and Richelle Mead are two of my most read authors as well. I haven't read any Maria V. Snyder yet, but Poison Study has been on my TBR for ages, I must get to it soon!

  18. Richelle Mead is on my list. and JLA almost made mine. But I suck at finishing series so, yea. haha. Great list!
    Here's my TTT
    xo Stephanie

  19. I haven't read anything by most of these authors!! I did read Obsidian a couple years ago and really didn't like it very much, but I guess I should give that author another try. Great list! :D

    Here are my Top Ten!

  20. I'm slacking, I've only read half of your top 10 authors! Now to check out the rest :D

  21. Wow, big list and a lot of amazing authors. You've read so many books by them all!!! That's enough reading for a whole year for some people.

  22. Yikes! That's a great Teaser. I want to read this book.
    My Tuesday post features THE LAND OF MANGO SUNSETS.

  23. Great teaser, I must check that new book by Becca Fitzpatrick!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and hope you're having a fantastic Tuesday, Jessica! :D

  24. Great list! I've been meaning to read a lot of these authors, but I think the only one we have in common is Richelle Mead. i really want to read Obsidian ( I even bought it already) but I haven't gotten to it yet. I like your teaser too. I don't think that guy is having a good day, lol. Thanks for sharing and for visiting Bookworm Book Reviews! :)

  25. It looks like we might be twinsies when it comes to authors! My favorites include Rachel Vincent, Kelley Armstrong, Kim Harrison, Jennifer L. Armentrout, Chloe Neill, and Richelle Mead! I have a Keri Arthur series, just haven't had time to dig in! I would add Molly Harper, Rachel Caine, Shelly Crane, Amy Bartol, and Ednah Walters. Happy Tuesday! <3

  26. How chilling! The teaser definitely has me wanting to know more. I will have to look for Dangerous Lies.

    I enjoyed reading your list! I didn't realize Maria V. Snyder has so many books out. I have her first book to read. Kelley Armstrong didn't quite make my list, but she came close. :-) I've read a few Keri Arthur books, but again, not enough to make my list.

  27. Whew what a tease! A lot of the authors you chose would be on my list too. I know Kim Harrison, Richelle Mead, Jennifer Armentrout, and Jeanine Frost would definitely be. They are some of my fav's :D

  28. These are all new authors to me! I notice your post also shows off your favorite genre!

  29. You have read a lot by Jeaniene Frost! I love Bones but I have yet to read all the books in that series. Jennifer Armentrout made my list too!
    Check out My TTT

  30. i love both Jeaniene frost and Jennifer armentrout both really good authors. xx

  31. I think I've only read Jennifer Amentrout. Though I have a few books from some of the other authors sitting (some for a very long time) on my TBR pile. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Oh and don't worry about the long comment. I totally agree with everything you said.

  32. Jennifer L Armentrout would be on my list too.


Comments are an award all on their own! So my blog is an award free one! Thanks for any consideration though!
