Hello readers! How is June going for everyone? I haven’t been reading very much, but I’ve been busy with other things. Today I am redoing a old post from before I came to WordPress. I have quite a bit of old content that my current readers have never seen from my days back on Wix.
Before we go any further, I want to disclaim there are affiliate ads within this post.
Tite (pronounced Taito) Kubo – 37 books
Tite (pronounced Taito) Kubo – 37 books
Kubo is the author of a manga series called Bleach. I read 37 out of the 74 volumes back in high school. I really want to reread and finish this series over the next few years. I’m planning a 30 before 30 type of post, and that series will be the first thing mentioned.
Bleach is about Ichigo Kurosaki, who becomes a Shinigami, which is a soul reaper or guardian of souls. They fight hollows (sort of like a lost souls turned evil) and prevent them from eating other souls.
Stephen King (Richard Bachman) – 28 books
King is the author that turned me into a reader. I read my first book by him, Lisey’s Story, when I was 12. As a kid, I LOVED horror movies and I HATED reading. The only thing I would read without being forced is those teen magazines. I discovered his movies when I was 12 and quickly tried one of his books. After Lisey’s Story, a co-worker of my mom gifted me a big box of his books and the rest is history. I actually own a ton of his books including unread ones, but I don’t count them toward my current owned TBR.
I am PAINFULLY aware that his is significantly older than me and I don’t want to run out of books to read by him any day soon.
Below is my Instagram post from a while ago of all my books by him, except The Shining, because I couldn’t find it. I used to own more, but I got arid of most of my mass market paperback copies.
P.C. Cast – 22 books
P.C. Cast used to be one of my favorite authors, but I have been reevaluating that recently, even before I read Spells Trouble. I have read House of Night, Tales of a New World, and the Parthalon series.
The older I get, the more I realize her books are kind of problematic. I still think Tales of a New World is amazing, but I don’t feel the same about her other books.
Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket) – 21 books
I read the Series of Unfortunate Events series by Lemony Snicket and even the prequel series called All the Wrong Questions. I’ve also tried a few books under his real name, and I just don’t think I’ll read anything else by him. All the Wrong Questions was good, but there were a lot of plot holes. Maybe if I were a kid, I wouldn’t have noticed, but I did. As for his Handler books, I just don’t like them. They don’t have what Snicket books have.
If he ever writes anything else in the same world as SOUE, I might pick it up, but I’m not sure.
Jeff Kinney – 17 books
Kinney is the author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and the spin-off series called Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid. I have read ever book in both series except one. The 3rd DOAAFK came out a few months ago, but is halloween themed, so I’m not going to read it until closer to October.
When I was a young teen, I would read the books with my slightly younger cousin. We would hold 1 book and read it at the same time. I don’t read happy or funny books often, but I can’t help to read everything by Kinney because I do think his books are so funny.
Masashi Kishimoto – 15 books
Kishimoto is the author of Naruto. Naruto was my very first anime I ever watched. I haven’t read much of the books, though. There are 70 volumes total, plus Boruto. Boruto is a spin off about Naruto’s children. I did read 1 book in that series, but it is written by a different person.
Darren Shan – 14 books
Shan is such an odd author for me. He wrote this middle grade series I read in high school called Cirque Du Freak. I have been rereading them in 2021, so you may have heard me mention it. When I finished that series, I immediately tried Demonata, and DNF’d. A few years after high school, I tried Zom-B and also didn’t like that. I’m not sure if I should keep trying his books or just stick to Cirque Du Freak.
I have been thinking about re-trying Demonata. My issue at the time was how extremely violent it was. At the beginning the MC walks into his house and finds his entire family violently murdered and somewhat dismembered. The book takes off when he moves in with a family member. I think I could take a book like that now, but back then it was too much. I had issues with Stephen King books like that in high school, too. I just waited a few years and tried them again once I wasn’t as sensitive to that sort of thing. Shan is very talented at describing violence.
Jeaniene Frost – 13 books
This is an author of a smutty Paranormal romance series called Night Huntress. When I was about 19, everyone on Goodreads was reading one of her books in a spin off series. I didn’t used to look at what books were about, and still really don’t. It turned out to be this expansive vampire series and I really loved to read it. Night Huntress follows a girl named Cat. She is a half-vampire and a vampire hunter. One day, she tries to kill a very powerful vampire named Bones. He kidnaps her and a enemies to lovers type romance forms.
Tsugumi Ohba – 12 books
Third author of manga. This author wrote a shorter series called Death Note. It is a mystery series where this teen named Light finds a Death Note. When you write someone’s name in it, they will die. If you only write the name, they will die of a heart attack. However, the writer can detail how the person dies and what they do leading up to their death. Light’s father works with the police and they start to catch on to these mysterious deaths all around Japan.
Sophie Kinsella – 10 books
I am not a huge fan of contemporary, but I have been reading Kinsella books since 2015. She is most known for her Shopaholic series about a girl named Becky with a shopping addiction. That series isn’t for everyone, but I have a ton of fun reading that series. I am aiming to finish it in 2021 and try even more of her books.
