top ten tuesday: authors I own the most books from

Top Ten Tuesday

Welcome to another week of Top Ten Tuesday, everyone! This bookish meme is, as always, hosted by the lovely blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week the theme is Top Ten Authors I Own the Most Books From. After analyzing my bookshelves I finally have the results!

1. J.K. Rowling (7 books).

This should come as no surprise, considering my love of her books. I own her entire Harry Potter series, which I absolutely adore.

2. Orson Scott Card (6 books).

Those who don’t know me too well may be surprised to know that I am a science fiction girl at heart. From the wonderful Mr. Orson Scott Card, I own the entire Ender Quintet as well as his novel Pathfinder, which I have not read yet.

3. Michael Scott (6 books).

And no, I don’t mean Michael Scott of the hilarious television show, the Office. I mean Michael Scott, author of the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series, all of which I own.

4. Suzanne Collins (6 books).

 Contrary to popular belief, I did not start reading Suzanne Collins’ book when The Hunger Games became a huge hit. Rather, I started reading her fantasy books when I was in reading enrichment in elementary school. Due to my interest in reading as a wee girl I now own her entire Gregor the Overlander series as well as The Hunger Games. 

5. John Green (5 1/3 books).

You may be wondering how I can possibly have a third of a book. Well, that is because John Green contributed one out of three of the short stories in the book, Let it Snow. I also own his novels An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns, Looking for Alaska, The Fault in Our Stars, and Will Grayson, Will Grayson, which he co-wrote with David Levithan.

6. E. L. Konigsburg (5 books).

I absolute love E.L. Konigsburg’s books. I first started reading them when I was in third grade, and I still own the copy of the first one I bought! I own The Outcasts of 19 Schuyler Place, Silent to the Bone, The Mysterious Edge of the Heroic World, The View from Saturday, and The Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. 

7. J.R.R. Tolkien (5 books).

As a fantasy-lover, it is a must that I have these books on my shelves! I own the Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Hobbit, and The Silmarillion, which I have not read.

8. Michael Grant (5 books).

My middle-school self LOVED Michael Grant’s novels! I even got the chance to meet him in person, which was incredible. I own Lies, Plague, Fear, Light, and BZRK. 

9. Pseudonymous Bosch (5 books).

Chances are, you probably have never heard of this author. This is obviously a pen name, and I loved his books when I was in middle school. I haven’t read them in years, but I couldn’t get enough of them back then. I own his entire Secret Series, and yes, that’s what it’s actually called. If you’re in the mood for something quirky and totally fun, then you should definitely check his books out!

10. Christopher Paolini (4 books).

His books are another must-have for any fantasy lover. I own the entire Inheritance Cycle.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little journey through my bookshelves!

  1. Yep, pretty much every list that I’ve looked at today has included J.K Rowling! But how could they not?? I haven’t yet read any of her books unrelated to Harry Potter, but I hope to get to them soon. I also really wanna read the Ender Quintet — they look so good!

    1. I haven’t read any of J.K. Rowling’s other books either… I’m hesitant about it, because I’ve only ever read Harry Potter. I highly recommend the Ender Quintet- I’ve only read the first two books, but they blew me away so I’m sure the others are great as well.

    1. I know! I started reading them back when I was in seventh grade… I believe only Gone and Hunger were out at that point. It seems as though they never really get much publicity, which I don’t understand. Maybe it’s because the series is so long? I don’t know. It’s mind boggling.

    1. I read the Overlander series by Suzanne Collins back in elementary school, and when she came out with The Hunger Games I was like OMG THAT’S THE AUTHOR OF THAT SERIES. It took me a while to put two and two together haha.

    1. Meeting Michael Grant was amazing! He’s such a nice man, and he really makes you feel as though he appreciates you as a fan of his work.

  2. I think I need to visit this topic in the future…I wonder if JK Rowling will make my list? I’m a “serial” mystery reader and I have tons of books from the same author. Thinking about it, I do have 11 books from her (including the HP textbook set), so I think she’d be in there…
