TTT - Authors I own the most books from

It's time to link up with the Broke and the Bookish again!

This week's topic is fairly self explanatory - the ten authors we own the most books from. And I was kiiiiiind of shocked by how this list turned out, at least partly because a lot of these now live in cupboards or in boxes under my bed...

1. Janet Evanovich - 42 books
Holy mackerel, I was not expecting this. I went through a big obsession with the Stephanie Plum books during university, and a good friend sent me a lot of Evanovich's early novels when they were republished about ten years ago. Somehow, all of that adds up to 42 books. And I don't even have the five most recent Stephanie Plum books........ O.o

2. Terry Pratchett - 35 books
Technically, a couple of these are my little brother's books. But he moved to England and left them in my room, and possession is nine-tenths of the law, therefore I think they count as mine. MWAHAHAHA. Ahem. One day, I'll own the full Discworld series. One day... 

3. Kelley Armstrong - 22 books
I have the full Women of the Otherworld series, including the two short story volumes (I *think* there was a third one published earlier this year that I don't have and must track down immediately), as well as The Darkest Powers trilogy, two of the Nadia Stafford books, Sea of Shadows, and the first book in The Darkness Rising trilogy.

4. Charles Dickens - 12 books
For some reason, I expected this number to be higher. Maybe it's because I have Bleak House, Our Mutual Friend, David Copperfield, and Nicholas Nickleby, which could be about twelve individual books if you split them into 300 page blocks! 

5. James Rollins - 11 books
I'm really not sure how I ended up with this many James Rollins books, because they're generally pretty ridiculous and highly implausible. Oh well. 

6. Charlaine Harris - 11 books
I'm missing the last two books in the Sookie Stackhouse series, but I'm honestly not sure I'll ever bother buying them because they just got so awful by the end...

7. Bill Bryson - 10 books
I'm only missing a couple of Bryson books - 1927, for one. And I still haven't read At Home. I started it a year or so ago and got distracted about fifty pages in. Whoops??? I might take it with me to England later in the year in the hopes of getting it read on some long haul flight or another.

8. Donna Andrews - 10 books
I have a weird soft spot for the Meg Langslow books. A lot of them are kind of same-same-but-different these days, but they're so much fun. Someday I'll end up with the full series... 

9. J.K. Rowling - 9 books
All the Harry Potter books, plus The Cuckoo's Calling and The Silkworm, which I still haven't read. I borrowed The Casual Vacancy from the library, and I can't decide if I want to reread it enough that it's worth buying it someday... 

10. Jasper Fforde - 9 books
I stopped buying his books when the Thursday Next series went downhill. I think I have the first six books, plus the Nursery Crimes series and Shades of Grey

What authors do you own the most books from?

    I'm still buying the Thursday Next books and haven't even read any of the other series by Jasper Fforde though I always wanted to chech the Nursery Crimes series out.

    I guess most of my books are tied into crime novel serieses but I probably need to make a list/post of my own about that :-)

  4. Woah, you are rocking the Janet Evanovich books there. xD That's amazing! My sister owns like 60 Boxcar children books, but I decided to avoid them on this list...hehe. I have never ever read a Terry Prachett book. I feel like I need to remedy this ASAP.

    Here's my TTT!
