1. Akihisa Ikeda - 23 books. Ikeda wrote Rosario + Vampire and Rosario + Vampire: Season II manga. Both are fantastic and addicting. Both series are action packed and has a wide range of paranormal characters. If you want to delve into a manga about a boarding school with a variety of creatures such as vampires, succubi, witches, etc., definitely check out this series. The manga is much better than then anime by the way. I love how the main character is a human who tries to hide the fact that he is a human at a monster school.

4. Charlaine Harris - 14 books. Harris wrote The Southern Vampire Mysteries series. If you enjoy paranormal fantasy about werewolves, vampires, witches and fairies, definitely check out this series. This series is adult and has adult content such as sexual encounters. The TV show True Blood is loosely based on this series.
5. Rick Riordan - 14 books. I have read all of Riordan's series and they don't disappoint. I love how Riordan weaves mythology into Middle Grade books for all readers to enjoy. Not only am I learning mythology but I am enjoying the adventures Riordan created. His writing is humorous and I can always depend on him to cheer me up. Definitely check out Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Heroes of Olympus and The Kane Chronicles. Riordan has an upcoming series called Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard which is based on Norse Mythology
6. J.K. Rowling - 13 books. Harry Potter has been a big part of my life and thank you to The Queen for inspiring me for being who I am today. Thank you for creating such an imaginative yet an important story for many readers to enjoy. Thank you for creating a loving and welcoming community of Potterheads. I have not found a community so generous and so accepting. The Harry Potter community accepts everyone and it's like a family. When I go to Harry Potter events, I see them as reunions. Thank you Rowling for the magic and for making this beautiful thing happen!

8. Brian Jacques - 11 books. Jacques wrote the Redwall series. Although I have only read half of the books in the series, Shan has shaped a good chunk of my childhood. I started reading Redwall books in grade school and have been hooked on fantasy ever since. Mossflower is my favorite book in the series that I have read so far. I hope to read the whole series one day.
9. Cassandra Clare - 11 books. All of Clare's book are about the Shadowhunter world and I am not complaining. I have been following Clare's work since her Draco Trilogy fan fiction hit the internet in the early 2000's. Not only have I fallen in love with her writing but I love the world building in The Mortal Instruments and in The Infernal Devices series. I can't wait for the The Dark Artifices and The Last Hours series. I also enjoy reading her Middle Grade series, Magisterium, which is co-authored by Holly Black.
