Top Ten Tuesday is a lovely original feature/weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This is my first week doing this thing called “Top Ten Tuesday” and I’m so excited to participate in it! 🙂 I’ve actually never considered the authors whom I own the most books from so this should be fun. These are in no particular order!
At the very beginning of this year, I went on Amazon and bought nearly all of the Iron Fey books for really cheap. Yes, it’s another example of my book hoarding, but this series is so good! I want to keep re-reading these…
#2: John Green
I only have The Fault in Our Stars and Looking for Alaska in my library (and I haven’t even read the latter–I’m a terrible JG fan, I admit), but Green is a great author. My favorite of his is Paper Towns and I still need to add that one to my library. SO excited that it’s going to be made into a movie!
#3: Suzanne Collins
I have to say, I was a huge (and I do mean HUGE) fan of her Gregor the Overlander series before HG had even been released. I grew up on those books and cried like a baby when I finished them. When I read HG years later and found out both were penned by the same author, I was shocked! Such different stories… but both respectable in their own right.
#4: Libba Bray
In high school, I devoured this trilogy. This past year I finally bought them all! Still need to re-read them… but, I don’t know if I can deal with Kartik again. 😦 And, come on, these covers are GORGEOUS.
#5: Trenton Lee Stewart
These are some of my childhood classics… I love the characters in this series and the fun, delightful mysteries surrounding the Benedict Society.
#6: Sarah Dessen
There are times in my life when I need to read some fluffy chick lit and those are the times when I pull out my Sarah Dessen books. Predictable and cheesy at times? Sure. Satisfying? Completely.
#7: Carrie Ryan
I’ll be honest: I bought these books to re-read, but also to shove in my friends’ faces so they can experience Carrie Ryan’s world full of creepy, frightening Unconsecrated. Ugh, I’m getting goosebumps right now just typing about this series.
#8: Cornelia Funke
Maybe this is a bit of a throwback, but Inkheart was my JAM back in middle school. All the cool kids were reading this series (and I was such a cool kid). Sure, the movie was a bit of a disappointment, but everyone knows that the book is always better, anyways. On another note, I still don’t know how to pronounce this author’s name. Does anyone? These are the questions that keep me up all night.
Okay, so I only made it to 8! I could have added Stephanie Meyer and made it 9, but, considering that this blog is linked to all of my public profiles, I think I’ll stick to 8… No judgement here, right? It was eighth grade, come on. Everyone loved Edward in 2008… No shame.
Who are a few authors whose books line your bookshelves? Any recommendations?
