Top Ten Tuesday: Most Read Authors

This week's topic is most read authors. Thanks for Goodreads for making this post easy. In the past two years, I've seen a huge shift in my reading. In the past, I read more YA books (estimated 70%). Now I feel like I read 50/50 split between YA and Adult. I have some thoughts on why that is - which will make another blog most. So I split this up into authors: Adult and YA/Tween/Kid

Also this doesn't take into account my reading prior to the last 5 years. In my tween/teen years, I read A LOT of RL Stine, Christopher Pike, Evelyn Anthony, Mary Higgins Clark, Ann M. Martin, Phyllis Whitney, and more

I love how you separated your lists!
I have never read anything by Cabot and i have read only one adult Patterson book.
And I am only finished 4 of the Plum books by Evanovich. I will get there. Someday. Which series did you read by her?
And most of those other people on your lists i do not know much about so i will look them up and see which ones i will add to my TBR pile. Thank you for that :)
Fantastic list :)
