Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Authors I own the most books from.

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by the Brooke and the Bookish. This week's list is of ten authors I own the most books from.

Jenny Nimmo - I own five of her books.

Louise Rennison - I own five of her books. 

Cornelia Funke - I own five of her books.

J.R.R. Tolkien - I own five of his books. 

Neil Gaiman - I own six of his books.

J.K. Rowling - I own seven of her books.

Meg Cabot - I own nine of her books.

Diana Wynne Jones - I own nine of her books.

Cathy Hopkins - I own ten of her books.

Cassandra Clare - I own eleven of her books. 

One thing I noticed while I was making this list is that my favorite authors and the authors I have read the most book from are often not the same thing. I like Neil Gaiman's, J.K. Rowling's and J.R.R. Tolkien's works much better than Kathy Hopkins' or Meg Cabot, for example. What determines how many books I read for each author was the quality of their writing, but how fast the books were to read has a great impact too - I remember going through four of Hopkins' novels in a weekend, for example. 

What authors do you own the most books from? Let me know in the comments!


  1. Great list Sofia! I have J.K Rowling on my list this week too. I just can't get rid of them as I know Harry Potter is something that I'd re-read.

  2. Interesting list -- a couple of those authors, I've never heard of (looking them up now). LOVE Cassandra Clare (and Tolkien and Rowlings and... LOL!). Here is mine: Top Ten Tuesday at Long and Short Reviews

  3. Cassandra Clare and J. K. Rowling made my list too! They're both such fantastic authors.

    J.R.R. Tolkien is in my Tenner, too! =) J.K. Rowling is technically tied with him, but I decided to give her an honourable mention instead of an official place on the list because I feel that all the Harry Potter books should kind of be counted as one. =P

  5. Great author collections! Clare is one I collect as well. I need to read up on Cathy Hopkins. Thanks for sharing your faves :)
