Top Ten Tuesday (1)

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and Bookish, and we compile a list of the chosen topic. This week, the topic is:

Authors I Own the Most Of

Okay, so obviously, I wanted to start participating in something while running my book blog, but this one scared me. I do a lot of book and author sampling. I took a deep breath, and examined my shelves and boxes of books, and I came up with a list. Some are technically ties, but this is what I've got. Enjoy.

  1. Nicholas Sparks (20)
    I own every book written by this man in hardcover. I also have a few dupes and a few in paperback.
  2. J.K. Rowling (11)
    I own the entire Harry Potter collection, including the three supplemental books to the series. I have two copies of Tales of Beedle the Bard. Other people in my home own some J.K. Rowling books, so the total count is higher; I just included my own.
  3. Ann Brashares (9)
    My mom bought me a box set of the Sisterhood series when I was in elementary school. I found the fifth one, and my grandma randomly buys some of her books for me. I still have to read 3 Willows, The Last Summer (Of You and Me), and The Here and Now.
  4. Laura Ingalls Wilder (8)
    My mom bought me a box set of her books when I was little because she loved Little House on the Prairie. I've never read them, but I will one day. I just didn't understand why she gave them to me.
  5. Kiera Cass (4)
    Right now, I own all three books in The Selection series and the stories in paperback.
  6. Veronica Roth (4)
    I own all three books in the Divergent trilogy and a hardcover of Four: A Divergent Collection.
  7. Rainbow Rowell (4)
    I own all four of her books.
  8. Suzanne Collins (3)
    I own all three books in The Hunger Games trilogy.
  9. Lois Lowry (3)
    I own a hardcover and paperback copy of The Giver. I also have a copy of Number the Stars on my shelf, but I've never read it.
  10. Sarah Ockler (3)
    I don't own all of her books, but I do have Bittersweet, The Book of Broken Hearts, and Fixing Deliah.

If you participate, leave a comment. I want to check out who most often appears on your shelves.


  1. We both have Rainbow Rowell & J.K. Rowling on our lists (well almost everyone has Rowling on their lists). I have read only read The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks and it was okay but I didn't love it. Should I try any other book by him? :)

  2. Anna, I really love his books. The Last Song and A Walk to Remember are most like YA, but his books about adults are really good. The Guardian and Dear John are two of my favorites.

  3. Wow, u're a big fan of Nicholas Sparks huh? I've read some of his but my FAVORITE of them is Dear John (I cried...) Which is yours? :) Also liked The Last Song though The Lucky One disappointed me a bit... Anyway, you have a beautiful collection. ^^

    Lola @ Hit or Miss Books

  4. Lola, I haven't read him in a while, and some of his newer books disappointed me, but I have a soft spot in my heart for him. My favorite is probably The Guardian. I'm a sucker for a book with a dog. I'm also a big fan of Dear John, The Last Song, and A Walk to Remember.

  5. I haven't read many books by Nicholas Sparks, I don't think they're my cup of tea! I really want to read Tales of Beedle the Bard but haven't got my way around it but I just know J.K. Rolling won't disappoint. Anyhow, this is a nice collection you have here. ^_^

  6. @Naban. They are definitely aimed at people who like romance novels. My grandma bought them all for my in hardcover, so I read as many as I can, but I do have my favorites. Plus, his newer books aren't as good.

    The Tales of Beedle the Bard is great! I loved it. I'm sure I'll be adding some more Rowling to my shelves soon because I really want to read The Casual Vacancy.

  7. You have some great Authors on this list! I have a lot of Nicholas Sparks books too, I do love a good romance! Great list :)
