Top Ten Authors I Own The Most Books From

This one is an interesting topic for me, because I really had to look at my bookshelves!  I definitely have a lot of authors that are pretty new, so they don’t have this huge backlist of books.  But I managed to come up with quite a few authors where I have at least 5 or 6, so I went with some of my favorites!

  1. Rachel Caine with 29 books.  Mostly because I’m a big fan, and own most of her books…but it does help that Weather Wardens is 9 books, and Morganville Vampires is an astounding 15 books.
  2. Alison Weir with 9 books.  I have a bunch of her books, and I’m pretty sure I’ll be happy when I have all of her books.
  3. Natsuki Takaya with 15 books.  I really need to finish Fruits Basket one of the days.
  4. Rachel Ray.  I’m a big fan of her food, which is why I have 7 of her cookbooks!
  5. Maria V. Snyder with 11 books.  I don’t read a lot of fantasy, but she is one of my favorites in the genre!
  6. Julie Kagawa with 7 books.  (10, if you include novellas).  Because she is full of awesome.
  7. J.K. Rowling can do no wrong with the 8 books I’ve read.  (…plus the care of magical creatures textbook, quidditch through the ages and the tales of beedle the bard…and I really need to read The Cuckoo’s Calling…)
  8. Gail Carriger is why I love steampunk.  I have 7 of her books!
  9. Jane Austen with 6 books.  Because she’s Jane Austen.  And she’s right up there with J.K. Rowling.
  10. Philippa Gregory is one reason why I love historical fiction.  The 5 books I have are pretty awesome.
