Meme: Top Ten Tuesdays

Posted 29 July, 2014 by Lianne in Meme / 18 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

This week’s topic: Ten Authors I Own The Most Books From

Oh my. Well… (This includes ebooks, right? Yeah, let’s include those 😉 )

In no particular order:

  1. Daniel Silva — I own all 16 of his books (minus his latest novel that was released earlier this month)
  2. J.R.R. Tolkien — I have all of his major works + his letters.
  3. Jane Austen — I own two copies of her completed novels (three copies in the case of Persuasion (commentary) and Sense and Sensibility (commentary) 😛 )
  4. Georgette Heyer — I think I’m slowly making my way to collecting all of her books on my Kobo (for the most part). Dunno if I should even bother counting at this point…
  5. Guy Gavriel Kay — After my recent spree on Kobo, I now have a ton of his books (6) 🙂
  6. Brandon Sanderson — Most of his books, anyway 😉 (10)
  7. Rainbow Rowell — I have all 4 of her books so I had to make that a fact somehow in this week’s list 😀
  8. Neil Gaiman — Another author was going to take this slot this week but then I realised while counting that I own 5 Neil Gaiman books so he gets a spot here.
  9. Terry Pratchett — Totally forgot that my Discworld novels are lined up behind my Daniel Silva books but yeah, I own a number of his books (8) 🙂
  10. Patricia A. McKillip — I don’t know how many books she’s written altogether but I think I’m almost halfway through collecting all of them, lol (11)

Edit: Guys, how on earth did I forget J.K. Rowling? I do own all 7 Harry Potter novels *facepalmsmack* I suppose GRRM should’ve made an appearance here too since I have 6 of his books…

Edit #2: And Carlos Ruiz Zafon! I own all 7 of his books (that were translated in English) and a second copy of The Shadow of the Wind. How could I have forgotten him? xP

And those are the authors I own the most books from! Who made your list this week?

  1. The only ones on your list I’ve read are Jane Austen and Tolkien, though I’ve never finished a book by either. I’ve got a lot of classic world literature and historical fiction on my shelves, with heavily-represented writers like Leon Uris and Hermann Hesse.

  2. I still have to read most of these but I did start on my Rowell collection and JRRT as well, and I had one Discworld book once so I must get back on that as well. 😀
    I have to check out some of the others!

  3. Great list! As you know, several of these are on mine as well. I only own one book by Neil Gamon (on my kindle) and I haven’t actually read it yet. :/ Hopefully soon, though. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Happy Tuesday! 😀

  4. Don’t worry about forgetting two great names, your list is the most original of the bunch I’ve read. Great taste!

    Also, I just realized I have forgotten including Tolkien! *gianfacepalm* It must be the heat – it is making us forgetful.

  5. I *need* to own more Austen. A.) there are TONS of gorgeous covers that would look attractive on my bookshelf and b.) I really want to make more of an effort to try to read her again. I just love her stories on film.

    One of my very favorite miniseries is “Going Postal,” though I never have read any of the books by Pratchett. Someday. Maybe. 😉

  6. Patricia McKillip has like…an endless list of books she’s written. I’m surprised at how few I’ve read because I feel like a lot of her books have a fairy tale sort of feel to them, which is like…my thing. The Forgotten Beasts of Eld was one of my mom’s favourite books growing up 🙂

  7. Romance and SFF, for the most part. . . I like your taste in reading! Tolkien missed being on my list only because he didn’t actually write that many books (even counting all the posthumously-released stuff), so there were other authors I had more of.
