Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish. 
This week the girls want to know my 
Ten Authors I Own The Most Books From

Well, this week's topic was really interesting. I knew I had some authors I had a lot of books from and others I own one or two but I never thought that I had two authors I own more than 10 books from. 
Terry Pratchett
I own 51 of his books. Yes, he is my number 1! I own 39 of his 40 Discworld novels, some other books by him and two of my favorite Discworld books in the beautiful cloth bound edition. 
Janet Evanovich
Janet's books are some of my all time favorites. I own all of her Stephanie Plum novels, her in between number books, her new series with Lee Goldberg and one of her romance novels - 28 books in total. 
Jenn McKinley
Jenn McKinley writes cozy mysteries - as many authors on this list - and I own 9 of her books. 
Anne George
She was the author of the Southern Sisters mystery novels and sadly died many years ago. I own all of her 8 Southern Sisters books and they are regular re-reads for me. 
Cleo Coyle
Cleo Coyle also writes cozy mysteries about Clare, a New Yorker coffeeshop owner. I really like these books and own 10 of them with hopefully more to come.
JoAnna Carl
JoAnna's books are settled in a small town and tell the story of chocolate shop co-owner Lee. Did you see that she has a chocolate shop? I was sold! I own 10 of her books. 
Lorna Barrett
My last cozy mystery writer on this list - I promise. Lorna Barrett's novels tell the story of a bookshop owner specializing in crime novel and I currently own 6 of her books.
Jill Shalvis
I adore the Lucky Harbor series and currently own 10 books of this series with hopefully more to add. They are not that easy to find in Austria but if I can't find them a week after release I usually order them online. 
Cassandra Clare
Who doesn't own all of her Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices novels? I do! So 9 books in total.
Ally Carter
At the end of last year I did a huge Ally Carter marathon. I read all 6 Gallagher Girls books in a bit more than a week and read the first 2 Heist Society novels and Double Crossed (novella) shortly after. I still need to read Perfect Scoundrel but I'm sure it won't take me long to do just that. I own 10 books by Ally.


  1. I have some of Clare's books on my kindle and she probably would have made my list if I counted the books on my kindle, but I didn't. Great list :)

  2. Great list! I don't keep most of my paperbacks but otherwise Shalvis, Barrett and McKinley would definitely have made the list! I love the Lucky Harbor books and McKinley's library series is one of my favorites. The cupcake one isn't bad either and I'm excited to try the hat series. Have you tried any of Barrett's books under her other names? I think one is L.L. Bartlett? There's only 2 or 3 but it's a fun series too. I've seen Cleo Coyle a try but never tired her despite my love of coffee. I'll definitely have to fix that!

  3. Good list I love Ally Carter and I love both her series the Gallagher Girls and Heist Society also Perfect Scoundrels is the best book of the Heist Society series in my opinion so read it soon.
