Eight Authors I Own The Most Books From

I'm once again linking up with The Broke and The Bookish for TTT. Link up and join along!!!

Eight Authors I Own The Most Books From

1. J.K. Rowling: I bought each of the Harry Potter books as they came out and I even got one early when a friend traveled to London which was a huge deal! I also have all of her newest non-Harry books except for Silkworm (which may not count because of the pen name and whatnot but we all know the truth) which I will acquire soon. 

2. Diana Gabaldon: Outlander is one of my all-time favorite series and while I don't own all of them yet, I will. But they have to be in the same format (with the exception of my signed 20th anniversary edition of Outlander) so I have to wait for them to come out. 

3. Stephen King: I read a lot of King but I'm working my way through his back catalog so I've still got plenty more to read. 

4. Charlaine Harris: I bought the box set of the first 6 or so of the True Blood series. The series has seriously dropped off but I will continue to read/buy them because my OCD takes over and the paperbacks are dirt cheap so I can justify it. 

5. Jodi Picoult:  Who doesn't love a good cry?!?! Own a lot but haven't read half. Working on it. 

6. Nora Roberts: When I need a good, easy, romantic story, Nora is my go-to. Not the best literature that was ever written but Nora is my homegirl. 

7. James Patterson: Once again, if I need a quick, thriller read, James is it. He co-writes a book every month or so so I doubt I'll ever run out. 

8. Nicholas Sparks: James and Nicholas have their formulas for their books that become repetitive if you read too many of them. They have similar themes and characters in a lot of their books and while that annoys me, I can always count on the quality being consistent. 

Ok. I know this isn't an official Top Ten Tuesday since I only came up with 8 but these were the first ones I could definitely think of. I probably own multiples in a series but I haven't read them yet so I didn't count them. A ton of these books are e-books or hand-me-downs but the majority of 1, 2, and 4, do actually sit on my grandfather's bookshelf which I thoroughly enjoy admiring regularly. E-books are convenient but I will never give up my love for real dead-tree books. 

Which authors have you read the most from?


  1. Great list! J.K. Rowling is also on mine. I used to have a lot of James Patterson, but I ended up getting rid of them because they took up so much space.

    Followed via Bloglovin'!

    1. Luckily, most of my James is e-book format or I would have a serious problem. I also think the ebooks are more economical because you feel like you're paying for the actual 150 pages of novel that you get to read rather than the 350 page published book that is mostly space at the end and beginning of each 2-page chapter. At least that's how I rationalize it! Thanks for the follow!

  2. Giiirl, we share 4 of the same top authors. Clearly we have excellent taste. High five!

    1. Clearly! Thank goodness I found someone with similar taste. It makes it easier to follow recommendations and not end up with the "how the hell did this end up on my TBR list?"
