So those are my top ten (eleven) most read authors, according to Goodreads. I think I may have read some other authors a lot, too, like Ann M. Martin, and other childhood series, but I don’t have a lot of them entered into Goodreads. I’ve also read many of the Sweet Valley Twins books, but I only have the Sweet Valley High books entered into Goodreads, so my number for Francine Pascal should be even higher.
Who are your top ten most read authors? Let me know, or leave a link to your TTT in the comments, and I’ll try to stop by your blog!

    JKR and CSL also made my list this week :) Sweet Valley High would have made my list too if I had had Goodreads back when I read them LOL! Man, I must have read hundreds of those, I even read the first few SVUniversity ones XD I still need to read John Green, Julie Kagawa and Charlaine Harris though.
