Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s theme is:
Top Ten Authors I Own The Most Books From
This list could be never-ending because I tend to hoard books from authors I love and quite often own multiple copies, but I digress… There are some authors though who by sheer prolificness (is that even a word or did I just make it up??), I own way more books from in average. Here are my top ten picks:
1. Raymond E. Feist
I own a whopping (at the time of this post) 26 books by Raymond E. Feist which is pretty scary when you put it in terms of how much money I’ve spent amassing his books (totally worth it though!)
2. Kelley Armstrong
I have a total of 24 Kelley Armstrong books – all the same series as well (and the spin-off young adult books of the adult series). That is astronomical!
3. Richelle Mead
I own 21 different Richelle Mead books (various series) and I don’t foresee a time when this author is not on my auto-buy list.
4. Rachel Vincent
Rachel Vincent is another author I own rather a few books from, 20 to be exact. I don’t love all of them (Faythe from Stray makes me want to throw things) but I always enjoy her writing.
5. Katharine Kerr
A favourite of old, Katharine Kerr books are always worth checking out and I re-read the 19 books I have of hers frequently. 🙂
6. Karina Halle
A newer favourite, I adore her Experiment in Terror series but it was Sins & Needles that really got me into her writing and started off my collection (19 and growing strong!)
7. L.J. Smith
One of the most prolific authors of my teen years (although, no one has anything on R.L. Stine – that man could surely pump them out!) I own 18 of her books.
8. Robin Hobb
My favourite author, it is not surprising that Robin Hobb ended up on this list. She is only at number eight due to volumes put out – if there were more books she would definitely be higher! As of now, she has 17 books of which all are in my possession.
9. Juliet Marillier
A respectable 16 books – that’s nothing to be sniffed at! I wish she had more books out because I would buy the hell out of the lot of them!
10. Jacqueline Carey
So far, Jacqueline Carey has 14 books published – and I own them all mwahaha! Her books are seriously addictive…
Confession time – I also own books 1 though to 100 in the Sweet Valley High series (recently purchased them for a song on eBay) but I did not count them for this list because Francine Pascal only created the series – it was a team of ghostwriters who wrote them!
