Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Authors I Own The Most Books From

I love the theme of this week’s Top Ten Tuesday list. I love reorganizing my shelves (or categories on my Kindle) every now and again, but I don’t often take note of who’s books I have the most of. To keep this brief, I’ll just list each author and how many books I have by that author with a little insight into why I have them. 

For full details on the Top Ten Tuesday blog meme, check out this page over at The Broke and Bookish.

Stephen King (10)

This does not surprise me as I’ve been reading SK for decades. 

What I Own: The Dark Tower Series (books 1-7), Four After Midnight, Everthing’s Eventual, On Writing

JK Rowling (8)

I am sad to admit I do not own any of JK’s adult novels (yet), but what book collection would be complete without the Harry Potter series?!? I am hoping to add the beautiful paperback editions to my collection soon.

What I Own: The Harry Potter Series (books 1-7), Tales of Beedle the Bard 

Amanda Hocking (7)

I first read the Trylle trilogy back when it was first being published with St. Martin’s Press. I love how Hocking’s books are fun, fast paced and quick reads. I am pumped for her latests book, Frostfire to release in January 2015!

What I Own: Trylle Trilogy & Watersong Series (books 1-4)

Cormac McCarthy (7)

I was on a big Cormac McCarthy kick in college after reading The Road and Child of God. I haven’t read most of what I have from McCarthy, but I adore his writing style.

What I Own: All The Pretty Horses, Blood Meridian, Child of God, The Crossing, The Road, No Country For Old Men, Suttree

Stephanie Meyer (6)

While they aren’t my favorite books of all time, I must admit I was caught up in the Twilight saga when it was being published. The Twilight Saga opened my eyes to how varied and accessible YA fiction had become. 

What I Own: Twilight Saga, The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner (Twilight Saga Novella), The Host

George R.R. Martin (5)

I have only read the currently published books in A Song of Ice and Fire series by Martin, but I am curious to read more of his work soon.

What I Own: A Song of Ice and Fire series (books 1-5)

Which authors can boast the most books on your shelves? Who do you wish you had more works from?

  1. My collection is complete without Harry Potter 😉 I read and both loved and hated The Road by Cormac McCarthy – I can completely understand binging on him. Never heard of Amanda Hocking before, so I will have to google her works!

    • I agree, Cormac is hypnotic and easy to hate as well. His writing is beautiful, but it can be a lot to take in.

      I really like Hocking as easy YA reads. They’re fun! I haven’t read the last book in the Watersong Series (Elegy) but the Trylle trilogy I read in maybe a weekend. I hope you enjoy them if you pick them up!
