Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted over at The Broke and The Bookish
I don’t have a whole lot of variety now that I’m actually looking to see how many books I have from each author. I guess it’s a bit obvious who my favorites are! 😀
This week is Ten Authors I Own The Most Books From:
1. Sarah Dessen – I own seven of her books.
Sarah Dessen was one of the authors that really got me into reading. The first book by Dessen that I ever read was The Truth About Forever, which I bought from my middle school’s scholastic book fair, and my favorite book is Just Listen. I’ve read all of her books except for Lullaby-which I only partly read/listened to via an audio book that somehow went missing- even though it was a digital copy…
2. Ellen Hopkins – I own five of her books.
I first learned about Ellen Hopkins in my ninth grade English Class. A classmate read a book report on Crank and I just had to check out one of her books. Funny thing is, a few weeks before hearing the report while my class was visiting the school’s library, I picked up one of her books, noticed it was poetry, and put in back down. I didn’t realize it wasn’t a bunch of individual poems, but rather a novel in poetry form.
3. John Green – I own five of his books.
John Green has gained quite a bit of popularity lately, with TFiOS coming out and everyone raving about his books, tumblr, and youtube channel. I put off reading his books until a friend recommended I read Looking for Alaska last year. She wasn’t the first person to recommend I read it, but I trused her opinion since we often liked the same books. After buying Looking for Alaska and TFiOS, I ended up reading TFiOS first, and I loved it so much I read the rest of his books within the next month as quickly as I could get my hands on them. Not all of them were as great for me as I felt TFiOS was the first time I read it, though.
4. Marissa Meyer -I own three of her books.
I bought Cinder at B&N on a whim one day last year and was blown away by the worldbuilding, retelling, and pretty much everything else in the book. I’ll admit I wasn’t as into the series until after I read Scarlet. Scarlet pretty much sealed my love for the series, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Cress! I have my pretty little set of all three books (how awesome are the covers!) on my top shelf of favorites along with Dessen’s books.
5. Suzanne Collins – I own three of her books
After seeing the first movie, I had to read THG, and then the next day I made my mom pick up both Catching Fire and Mockingjay from Meijers during one of her errands and read them immediately after she handing them to me. I think it was the fastest I’ve ever read an entire series, totalling about 2 1/2 days. I’m not as crazy about the series now, but I would still recommend these books to anyone who hasn’t already read them.
Scott was the other author who got me hooked into reading along with Dessen. I grabbed a copy of Something, Maybe at walmart when I was about thirteen and within the next two months or so I gathered up as many of her other books I could find along with any similar books, which is how I came across Dessen. Many of her books aren’t something I really enjoy reading (or re-reading) anymore so I gave them away to close friends/family members, but they’ll always have a special place in my heart, so I kept my two favorites as a reminder.
7. Christopher Pike – I own two of his books.
I had about six of Pike’s books on my shelves, but most of them now sit in a box in storage. I had all the books in his Thirst series, but now only the last book is on my shelves. I also have Remember Me, which I didn’t really enjoy, but I haven’t had the chance to find it a new home yet. If you haven’t read Thirst, you definitely should!
The rest of the authors only have one book on my shelves.
