Ten Authors I Own the Most Books From


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of the bloggers there at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join!

Today’s topic asked us to list the ten authors whose books feature the most prominently on our shelves. Because I own a lot of series, it’s those authors that dominate this list for me. I also left out two authors of romance novels, which I was obsessed with back in middle and high school, although I will state for the record that Nora Roberts and Catherine Coulter should definitely appear on this list – I think I own pretty much every single book both of those ladies wrote up until around 2002 or so, when I made a dramatic shift in genres to inhale. But I wanted to stick with YA/MG authors for this week, so unfortunately those two had to go.

Anyway, here’s my list!



So those are my top ten! Which authors do you own the most books from? Please link me!

  1. Awesome list you got here Merin! Wish I had a Lemony Snicket collection :D

    J.K Rowling is on my list this week too. I think she’ll be on many! I want to try and read some more Libba Bray. I have only read one book by her!

    A lot of authors on here I’ve been meaning to try and never seem to get to! Over half your list actually!

  4. Holly Black! Her Coldest Girl novel was such a great take on vampires :D

  5. Yay J. K. Rowling! She’s a popular one today (but no surprise there). I also love Holly Black and Libba Bray but I am still building my library so I don’t have many books from either of them yet. Hopefully someday!

  9. Great list! Neil Gaiman and J.K. Rowling both made my list this week too (well, the latter after a fashion) :)

  10. Hahaha. Nora Roberts made my list. I own quite a few of her books. I don’t read them much anymore, but I loved them when I was in college. And there are a few that are major comfort reads for me. I’m a real sucker for Sullivan’s Woman. And The Macgregor Brides.

  11. JK Rowling made my list of course. I didn’t think about CS Lewis. Husband owns like all of his books so I wasn’t including them when I created my list!

  12. Haha, I seen Rick Riordan on someone else’s list earlier and I said to myself, “I bet Merin has him on her list too”!! I honestly think of you everytime I see Percy or him mentioned because you spoke about your love for them so much <3 J.K. Rowling should have been on my list but I left it off for the sake of being fair haah… considering I own way too many copies of these books :P

    • Merin says:

      Haha, yes, you know me so well. I do love Percy, to bits and pieces. ♥

      I own hardback and paperback copies of all 7 books, as well as Tales of Beedle the Bard and the HP school books. She definitely makes up a large part of my book collection!
