Top Ten Tuesday: Top Author’s whose books I own.


Welcome to another contribution to the weekly blog meme hosted by The Broke and The bookish.  This week they ask us to share: Ten Authors I Own The Most Books From.  My husband and I have a fairly large library, 9 book cases in total and even more on the Nook and Kindle.  I’m not sure on the totals for each author below, but they are going to be close.  I was surprised once I started counting them up, I have a lot of books…

Top 10 Author who I own the most books from.

  1. Sherrilyn Kenyon:  I own a whooping 51 books by this author.  I have her complete Dark-Hunters series (including all the were-hunter, dream-hunter, hell-chaser books).  I also have her complete League series, her sci-fi series.  I have one book from another series she co-authors that I have yet to try, but if I love it too I may be adding to the books I own by Kenyon.
  2. Katie MacAlister: 30 books (estimate).  This one surprised me,  I didn’t realize I owned so many books by MacAlister.  I’m thinking it has to do with my fondness for her dragon series, but I her Dark Ones world too.  I have tried a few of her contemporary romance and wasn’t such a big fan of those and have not/will not be reading her historical books.
  3. Lynsay Sands: 23 Books.  This one isn’t such a surprise.  Most of the books I have of hers are part of the Arganeau series, I think I picked up one of her historicals, that has yet to be read, at a garage sale.
  4. J.R. Ward: 17 Books.  I have her complete Black Dagger Brotherhood series and three of the Angel ones, two of which are unread.
  5. Kerrelyn Sparks: 16 Books.  I have all of the books in her Love at Stake series, only one left…sniff, sniff.
  6. Alexandra Ivy: 14 Books.  I believe this is an author that I have all of her books only in e-format, all but one of the remaining authors on this list are that way.  I have most of the books in her Guardians of Eternity series and a couple she co-authored with #7 on the list.
  7. Laura Wright: 13 Books.  Authors #6 & #7 are such good friends that I find it fitting that I have very similar counts for them.  I have most of the books in her Mark of the Vampire series and a couple of other titles as well.
  8. Lara Adrian: 12 Books.  I have most of the Midnight Breed series.
  9. Jacqueline Rhoades:  11 Books.  I have every book this author has published:).
  10. Michele Bardsley: 10 Books.  I have most of her Broken Heart Series in print and on the Nook.

    1. Thanks, I’ve seen some other lists with high counts for different authors, but there weren’t many. I wasn’t till then that I realized how odd it was. Guess I really like Kenyon…


    1. I’ll read library copies too, but if I will fill in wholes with second hand copies if I really like the series. Some of them though like MacAlister and Sparks’s books are so cheap when they come out, around $5 the first week, that I just buy them.


  1. Can’t say i own them, but bought or borrowed from the library, most of them. Looks like I better try Wright and Bardsley, since I’m a fan of the others (Can’t claim #9, since I write them). I tried Ivy a long time ago and didn’t care for her, but I keep hearing good things about her books, so I’m thinking I should try her again, too.


    1. I keep reading Ivy, even though I steadily give her 3 star ratings. I like how her series is set in Chicago and along the Mississippi River. Probably the closest I’ll ever get to having a series set in my home. Wright is good, heavy on the steamy, and Bardsley has great humor.


  2. That is a lot of books and a lot of bookcases. I have one large one and piles of books everywhere. Maybe I should get another bookcase one day.


    1. It’s our vice, that and having to have our own computers. Not too bad a vice to have though if you ask me. When we moved into our big farm house we turned one of the extra bed rooms into a library, funny thing is half the bookcases are outside of that room.

    My Tenner was heavy on the Romances, too–even though I haven’t been a serious Romance reader for several years! I guess there’s just something about Romances that make us want to grab them all. Like all the chocolates in a box or something! ;-)
