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.

JK RowlingCS LewisJRR TolkienPatrick nessKasie WestMadeleine L EngleSusan CooperStephen KingLibba BrayMaggie Stiefvater

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.

  1. You haven’t read Gemma Doyle? Oh you should! I absolutely loved it. It’s so different from The Diviners and Beauty Queens. (I mean okay, I didn’t get very far into The Diviners, but that was because it was too different from the Gemma series and I wasn’t into it.) It’s a wonderful high fantasy, it’s got a fun period feel and it’s got boarding school drama and a cute boy from an exotic land and I love it. Actually now I want to reread it, hehe!

  2. I am a complete idiot! I completely forgot to include JK Rowling in my TTT. I also own two complete sets of Harry Potter (books 1-7), and then Tales of Beedle the Bard, and a three paperback copies. You simply cannot have too many Harry Potter books. 🙂

  3. I’m really impressed at your J.K. Rowling number. I used to own the two schoolbooks but at some point gave them to a friend. I still own all 7 main books though! Is the Casual Vacancy good?

  4. I need you to come and live at my house for a while and help me with my graphics on my blog. I love the little circle thing you did with the numbers. I think it is really neat to see the lists this week because, to some degree, they represent what we read as children (or to our children). So often we are busy focusing on the here and now that we forget to look back on the special books that built our literary foundation. Here is my list and you will see that I have several books that were special to my children (and me) while they were growing up. MyTTT-Anne@HeadFullofBooks
