Top Ten Authors I Own the Most Books From
When I started completing this prompt I realized something. I don't have a lot of books from the same author, even some favorite authors. With most of these authors I just own all the books in a particular series and maybe a few others.
This is probably the top of a lot of people's lists. Personally I have all seven books in the Harry Potter series, a Canadian version of The Order of the Phoenix, an Italian version of The Half Blood Prince, The Tales of Beedle the Bard, and The Cuckoo's Calling.
2.) Janet Evanovich - Books Owned: 9
I used to be totally obsessed with The Stephanie Plum series. I read all the way to Sizzling Sixteen and then moved on from cozy mysteries and haven't read any of the more recent ones. But I own the first four books, 14, 15, two between the numbers books, an an eARC of The Heist which she co-wrote with Lee Goldberg.
3.) Ann Brashares - Books Owned: 7
And another series I am a huge fan of is the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. I own all five books (and kind of want the redesigned paperbacks) in that series. I also have a copy of My Name is Memory which is fantastic and an eARC of The Here and Now.
4.) Gregory Maguire - Books Owned: 6
Again, I'm a huge fan of the Wicked Years series which is much darker and with a lot more political than the musical would lead you to believe. I kind of want the last two books in mass market paperback to match the first two because they're so pretty! I also have a copy of Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister and an ARC of Egg and Spoon (review forthcoming)
5.) Anna Godbersen - Books Owned: 5
In my opinion The Luxe series is one of the most under-appreciated series in YA literature. It's a fantastic piece of historical fiction with great characters and an amazing romance. I own all four books in that series and the first book Anna Godbersen's Bright Young Things series set in the 1920s.
6.) George R.R. Martin- Books Owned: 5
The rest of these are not going to be very exciting as it's mostly just all the books in one series. Like the A Song of Ice and Fire series for which I own all the mass market paperbacks.
And I also own the entire Lord of the Rings series, for which I have to movie tie-ins and a copy of The Hobbit which I may own because I never returned it to my high school English teacher (oops?).
8.) Libba Bray - Books Owned: 4
Libba Bray is a recent addition to the amazing authors I love list. Last year I read the Gemma Doyle trilogy and loved it! I own those three books and an audiobook version of Beauty Queens. I would like to own more Libba Bray books most notably The Diviners series!
9.) Milan Kundera - Books Owned: 4
I was went through a total Milan Kundera phase in college and immediately after graduating. I read The Joke in one of my political philosophy classes and loved it so much I read The Unbearable Lightness of Being, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting, and bought Immortality which I started and never finished.
10.) Rainbow Rowell - Books Owned: 4
She may be new to me but quickly has become one of my favorites and an auto-buy. I own every one of her books: Attachments, Eleanor & Park, Fangirl, and Landline. Everything she writes is pure brilliance and I can't wait to read more books by her!
