Top Ten Tuesdays is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and a weekly meme where we simply make a top ten list for the week's topic.
Top Ten Author I Own The Most Books From
10. Cassandra Clare & Melissa de la Cruz (7 books each)
I have all of The Mortal Instruments series and two of The Infernal Devices (I don't have Clockwork Angel, though I've read it twice). I have six books from the Blue Bloods series plus The Ring and the Crown (for now--I want to trade/give it away).
9. J.K. Rowling (8 books)
I have the entire Harry Potter series as well as The Casual Vacancy.
8. Simone Elkeles (9 books that are technically 6)
I have all her books (I believe) except for Wild Cards. I have How to Ruin a Summer Vacation and its sequels all in one book, so it's technically one book . . . but I'm counting it as three.
7. Richelle Mead (9 books)
This will soon be 10! I absolutely Vampire Academy/Bloodlines series.☺ (One of these nine books, sadly, is an ebook.)
6. Scott Westerfeld (9 books)
If you count my e-arc of Afterworlds, I have 10, but I'm only including finished copies (and print ARCs) in this list. I love his books! I have the entire Midnighters trilogy, three of the Uglies books, two in the Leviathan series, and Peeps. That last one is the only one I didn't love. All the others are favorites.☺
5. Julie Kagawa (10 books)
This includes almost all of the Iron Fey books (I don't have the newest from the spinoff series) and the Blood of Eden trilogy in print. I have The Iron Knight in both print and in ebook, but I'm counting both.
4. Kathryn Lasky (11 books)
The Guardians of Ga'Hoole series is my favorite children's (MG?) series! Sadly, I didn't finish it. I got to book ten. The 11th book I have by the author is Blood Secret.
3. Sarah Dessen (12 books that are technically 11)
Sarah Dessen is one of my all time favorite authors--she may be my top favorite, actually. I have a copy of every one of her books (I have two-in-one edition, so I technically have 11 books).
2. Jennifer L. Armentrout / J. Lynn (14 books)
I've had a lot of the books by every one of these authors (except Julie Kagawa--I only had one print book by her this time last year) since middle school, but I only started reading JLA's books in December of 2012. I'm including all of the Covenant series, four of the Lux books, a Lux novella, White Hot Kiss, Bitter Sweet Love, Don't Look Back, and Wait for You.
1. L.J. Smith (It's kinda hard to tell...it's just a lot)
If you count the actual, physical books I have, I own nine. However, I've been counting two or three-in-ones as two or three books each for the rest of the list. Almost every copy I own by this author has two or three books inside it, so I have . . . a lot. Counting them is confusing.
Do you have a lot of books by any of these authors? Are any of them your favorites?
