Top Ten Tuesday – Authors I Own the Most Books From

top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, to share lists with other bookish folks.

This week’s list is Top Ten Authors I Own The Most Books From.  My list is mostly hard copies with some Kindle books included.

{1}  Nicholas Sparks – 18 books.  I used to have a very large obsession with Sparks and his novels.  In fact, he’s the only author I have ever met in person.  I don’t enjoy his newer books as much as the older ones.  His latest release is the first book of his that I haven’t read, or purchased in hardback, but I do own it on my Kindle.

{2} Kendall Ryan – 10 books.  I just ordered several of her books in paperback, and the rest I have on my Kindle.

{3} Stephenie Meyer – 8 books.  The Twilight Saga (I have 2 copies of Twilight); including Bree Tanner, and the Official Illustrated Guide, as well as The Host.  And if I’m honest, I also own the entire Saga on my Kindle as well.

{4} Colleen Hoover – 7 books (I don’t actually have them all yet – I ordered all of the paperbacks last week and can’t wait for them to arrive in the mail!)

{5} Emily Giffin – 7 books (okay, 2 of them are eBooks)

{6} Jen Lancaster – 6 books (3 hard copies and the rest on my Kindle)

{8} E L James – Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy

{9} Sylvain Reynard – Gabriel’s Inferno Trilogy

    I fully plan to order all the CH books too, I have £25 to spend at Amazon and I’m so tempted to just snap them all up. But they’re the UK covers. Sigh. I have the Crossfire trilogy, but I tried to pick it up just after finishing 50 and I felt like it was really similar for the first few chapters and put it down again. Should I give it another go?

      Have you looked into other sites to try to get the US versions? I love Abebooks. I find they have a lot to choose from but I don’t know about shipping internationally. I ordered a few copies from them because buying all of my CoHo books from Amazon was a little pricey.

      YES – try again! Dare I say I love Crossfire more than 50? It’s a close race for me. I think each book in the Crossfire series gets better and the last one was fantastic. Yes, they are similar in plot in some ways but they are also very different in other ways, if that makes sense. I absolutely love them. I hope you give them another try!! 🙂

        I haven’t actually. Have you seen the UK cover for Ugly Love? It’s ok, but I wanted the drops of water one. At one stage I was tempted to order all signed copies through CH’s website, but I restrained myself!

        WUT?! Did you just say you prefer Crossfire to 50?? I’m having palpitations! Based on that statement I will try them again then. I literally picked it up straight after finishing 50 and I think the similar parts were just too similar for me, but I will delve in again!

      • Brandie says:

        Yeah, I’ve seen it and the US one is way better, IMO. I love the water cover!! I just downloaded the Griffin Peterson song – it was released today. Haven’t listened to it yet.

        I won a giveaway a few months back with a signed copy of Maybe Someday and a signed Griffin Peterson CD. It’s my favorite book so I was STOKED!!

        I know, I know! I can’t even believe I said it but I tend to lean more towards Gideon just a little bit. I love him. I did start this series right after 50, too, and I will say I didn’t love love the first book right away. It probably would have been better for me to wait a little while after 50 before I read it. But every book after that won me over more and more until he became my favorite. I just wish she’d write and release the next book already!! 🙂

    I love that you proudly display your Stephenie Meyers collection. My son asked me the other day if it wasn’t time to hide them. I told him he was full of it.

    Nora Roberts is definitely the winner of my bookshelves, followed by Jane Austen, J. K. Rowling, and Stephenie Meyer. Plus I have multiple copies of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. I know. Eclectic.

    • Brandie says:

      haha…I am a Twihard and I’m proud. Her series helped me fall in love with reading again and I don’t care what people say. 😉

      I enjoy Nora Roberts but do not own any physical copies of her books. I know JK is making the top of most lists today.

      I have never read Dracula!

    This one is a fun entry. I didn’t do it because 99% of my books are on my Kindle. Years ago I would have been able to boast my full bookshelf of Star Trek Generations books, but I sadly had to sell them all. All my other books got left behind in moves, and I only have a small pitiful amount of books that I’ve grabbed for cheap ($1 a bag) at the library. The most physical books I have are ~ my Trixie Belden ~ 19 (I had all 39 plus doubles years ago, stored them with a “friend” and lost them all), Nancy Drew ~ 16 and Harry Potter ~ 6 (again all lost, these are new ones). But on my Kindle is where my real collections lie, like all 38 of J.D. Robb’s books, and most of Nora’s, and tons and tons of others. Not as pretty as a bookshelf, but access to anything I want is better for me. 🙂

      The Kindle is so much more convenient and I couldn’t live without it!! If I did this post including my Kindle collection I would be overwhelming. For example, I have all of the Virgin River books on my Kindle. Over the years I’ve gotten rid of a lot of hard copy books. Either to make room for my favorites or because I had no intentions of reading them. I go book buying crazy and then they just collect dust. I do love owning hard copies of my favorite books, so that is what I’ve been trying to do lately – little by little I’m buying paperbacks of my favs. 🙂

      I wish that I hadn’t gotten rid of my childhood books. I’d still have stacks of Babysitters club and RL Stine books.

    I’ve heard really great things about Jen Lancaster, but never read any of her books! I think I started one, but I think I got distracted by something else. That tends to happen more and more, lol.

  5. fiza says:

    Oh I see so many familiar authors, why didn’t those come up in my brain >.< Though I know Nicholas Sparks is a really popular author I don't think I have ready any of his books…is that bad?

    • Brandie says:

      No, it’s not. He’s not for everyone, as I’ve learned over the years. He was my favorite for a long time, but my tastes have changed. I haven’t even read his newest book, although I really want to, just to see if I can get back into his books again.
