Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I Own the Most Books From

This Top Ten Tuesday, I am focusing on authors who I own the most books from. After creating this list, I realized I sort of have an eclectic taste in books.  


1.  Philippa Gregory- I have read most of her books and the Cousins' War is my favorite historical series, proudly displayed on my "favorites" bookshelf.

2.  Ernest Hemingway-  He is one of my favorite classic authors and I own all of his books, including a few biographies.

3.  Sarah Dessen - I adore Sarah Dessen -- the author of some of my favorite summertime reads!

4.  William Shakespeare - Thanks to being an English major, I own most of his plays as well as many of his books of poetry.

5.  Cassandra Clare - I have most of The Mortal Instruments series and all of The Infernal Devices novels…plus a few books are signed!



6.  Richelle Mead - I loved the Vampire Academy series. That is all.

7.  Jane Austen - Who doesn't love Jane Austen and her unrivaled Mr. Darcy? I have hardbacks of her books on my "favorites" bookshelf.

8.  Jenny Han - Her Summer series is my absolute favorite and I loved her latest, To All the Boys I've Loved Before.

9.  Adriana Trigiani - There was one summer (before blogging) where I really got into her books, such as Lucia, Lucia, and I recently loved her Valentine series as well as The Shoemaker's Wife.

10.  Emily Giffin - I really liked her Darcy and Rachel series and have read a few of her other books - some of which are signed! I still need to read her most recent book though!

So which authors have the most books on your bookshelf? Let me know what you think of my list!  This meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, so check it out!

  2. I own all of Sarah Dessen's books as well! And Shakespeare too. I have this giant book that has all of Shakespeare's plays. I've only read a couple though.
    I also own all of Richelle Mead's YA books! She's awesome! :)

    1. I adore Sarah Dessen and Richelle Mead…although I need to get caught up on the Bloodlines series. Thanks for visiting, Nick!

  3. This is a cool idea! I think I have the most books by Kelley Armstrong, even though I've only read one of them. I keep buying them at signings! Although if you include each book of my Shakspeare and Oscar Wilde anthologies, those would win for sure.

  5. I have the most books by Neal Shusterman, and I'm growing into Sarah Dessen. A friend of mine twisted my arm into reading a few of her books last year. I enjoyed them. Thanks for sharing. Here's mine: http://thebooksupplier.com/?p=5822

  6. Great list!! Cassandra Clare made my list as well. I just started reading the Vampire Academy series a few months ago and love it. I'm sure she would make my list if this topic surfaced again next year. I've also enjoyed all of the Dessen and Giffin books that I've read so far, but I got them from the library...so they didn't make my list.

  7. I don't know why I stopped buying Sarah Dessen's books. I remember reading three and loved all of them. I really should get back on that train. Great list!

  8. I am not surprised to find Philippa Gregory on your list (or Jenny Han)! I think Richelle Mead would be on mine but I still don't own all of the Vampire Academy novels though I do own all of the Bloodlines series so far. I also don't own all of Jane Austen's novels. I must remedy that!

    1. Haha, I know, right?! You should definitely get your hands on some Jane Austen hardbacks. :) Thanks for visiting, Christina!

  9. I'm with you on Sarah Dessen, Shakespeare, and Richelle Mead - I have so many of their works, they each practically have their own shelves!

    Awesome top ten :)
