Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, which features (you guessed it!) top ten lists on a given topic each week. This week’s topic is. . . .Top Ten Authors I Own the Most Books From. Now, I have books stored in two locations–here, in my lovely but small one bedroom apartment, and back at my Dad’s house, in my spacious room, which makes counting a little difficult. That being said, these are all just estimates, really.
1. JK Rowling
I own two copies of the entire Harry Potter series, plus a paperback of The Casual Vacancy, which means I own an impressive 21 books from JK Rowling.
2. C.S. Lewis
I own the entire Narnia series in paperback and in e-book, which is 14 books right there. Add in three of his nonfiction books, a book from his Space Trilogy, and the Screwtape Letters, I own 19 books by C.S. Lewis.
3. J.R.R. Tolkien
Hey, one should never split up best friends. I have The Lord of the Rings + The Silmarillion + The Hobbit + basically the rest of his books I’m too lazy to look up. These are at my dad’s house, so I can’t actually count, but I’d guess I own at least 10 books by J.R.R. Tolkien.
4. Patrick Ness
Ebooks of The Chaos Walking trilogy(3) + ebook of More than This + hardback of A Monster Calls=5 books.
5. Kasie West
2 copies of The Distance Between Us + Pivot Point + Split Second + On the Fence=5 books.
6. Madeleine L’Engle
The Time Quintet + Two non fiction books=6 books.
7. Susan Cooper
The Dark is Rising series=5 books.
8. Stephen King
The first 4 books in the Dark Tower series + On Writing=5 books.
9. Libba Bray
the Gemma Doyle trilogy(which I have yet to read) + Beauty Queens=4 books.
10. Maggie Stiefvater
Shiver + The Raven Boys + The Dream Thieves + The Scorpio Races=4 books.
