Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week there’s a different Top Ten list. It’s a great way to find and connect with other awesome bloggers.
It’s shelfie time!
Today I’m sharing with you the authors whom I own the most books of. They’re mostly series, but some (like John Green) have published standalones that I own. And first up we have…
How many books do I own? 15 books, including the whole Princess Diaries series plus some other random ones. I absolutely love Meg Cabot’s writing and these were the first YA books I ever read.
J K Rowling
How many? 11 books, including the Harry Potter series (along with the others – you can see Quidditch Through the Ages, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and The Tales of Beedle the Bard on the left-hand-side). Oh, also The Casual Vacancy, which I actually REALLY LOVED.
How many? I own 7 of his books – the Last Dragon Chronicles, one of my favourite series from when I was younger. The first few are amazing (red is supposed to be on the left of gold, by the way, they’re in the wrong order!!). Then they go downhill, but they still look pretty up there.
How many? I own 7 books by John Green. Well, okay, I’m slightly cheating because I own two copies of The Fault in Our Stars. Also, Looking for Alaska is missing from the photo. I think it’s on loan to somebody (somewhere). And my Nanna’s friend from Garden Club is borrowing my hardcover of Tfios so it isn’t there. But…yeah, he’s pretty much my favourite author at the moment.
How many? I own 6 books by her. I can’t find Inkdeath, though…it must be in the garage somewhere. The Thief Lord and When Santa Fell to Earth (that one’s MG) are both really great.
Gail Carson Levine
How many? Six books again! Well, two of those are Fairest – one hardcover, one paperback. Gail Carson Levine writes AMAZING fairytale retellings – the red and purple books next to the Meg Cabot one are short stories and they’re amazing – same with Ella Enchanted and Fairest. Plus, her book Writing Magic was the first I ever got to do with actual writing, and I treasure it immensely.
How many? Four, although I have read a LOT more than that. She’s the only adult author I read, pretty much, because her books are just so amazing (okay, I’ve also read Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic series, which is excellent and hilarious). I haven’t even read Second Glance yet because I haven’t had a chance…despite buying it more than a year ago.
How many? Four again. This is the Ingo series by Helen Dunmore, which is ONE OF MY FAVOURITE SERIES EVER. It’s got mermaids and it’s just really cool.
How many? Four books (the rest are just four). This is the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini. I started reading them in like year 3 or 4 – can you imagine a little kid lugging these books around? Crazy.
How many? 4. There seem to be lots of fours. There are more in this series but I haven’t caught up to them yet. HOWEVER, they are excellent, and the worldbuilding is fantastic. I’d like to read them again one day…
This post took a lot of digging around for books, that’s for sure – I don’t have much room on my shelves, except for my most FAVOURITEST books! Sorry for the dodgy photo quality – these were taken at night. However, I did have a lot of fun. Shelfies FTW (I need to get Instagram, let’s be serious).
