Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and Bookish. This week is Top Ten Authors I own the most books from. Now, I realise it has been a little bit of a while since I did one of these and I am so sorry!! I am not entirely sure I have a top ten authors I own the most books of because I have so many and they are all so varied. So, I am going to change this just slightly and do my Top Ten Authors (which in itself is hard!)
10. Kasie West – My love of Kasie West is not and never will be a secret. I have loved and cherished the relationship I have with her books ever since laying eyes on The Distance Between Us. He books are cute and adorable and the characters are relatable.
9. Tabitha Suzuma – Okay, I have only read one of her books, so clearly I need a slap! Forbidden was heart wrenching, addictive and impossible to put down despite the taboo subject. It was hard to read in places and challenged one of our major morals as a society to the point where we are rooting for the characters. If you read this book, have a box of tissues and a very large bar of chocolate in the vicinity. I need to read more from this author, this much is clear!
8. Tahareh Mafi – Shatter Me. This series doesn’t even have words to describe just how good it is. She creates a believable dystopian atmosphere with a touch of the sci fi to boot! This series has everything you could possibly want and more and this author is a rising star!
7. Stephanie Perkins – Cute and summery chick lit is what this author is about! Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door had me smiling and in a great feel good mood with a bounce in my step. She sure knows how to make a girl swoon!
6. Kiera Cass – The Selection Series. I loved this concept in book form – it was basically like the Bachelor, but so much better! I loved the characters and the interactions and America as it is shown there.
5. Jennifer L. Armentrout – I have so many books by her that I have to get around to reading it is unreal. They are sprouting and having children. The more the better! I love her writing and the concepts she uses.
4. Phillip Pullman – When I was younger, I had a major thing for his books (which I still own!). I loved sitting down and reading them and getting lost in his stories. The His Dark Materials are my favourite and I still have them sitting happily on my shelf, since I never throw books out (cardinal sin!)
3. Jackie Collins – This author has always been considered to be racy and/or controversial because of the way she portrays the lives of famous people. What I love about her books is the fact that she shows us that being famous isn’t all that and can be fairly trying at times. The characters are easily loved and memorable.
2. Stephanie Meyer – Whether you love the series of hate it, Twilight has been spoken about by practically every soul on the planet. It is a major topic of discussion (even if it is whether vampires should really sparkle). I personally enjoyed the books and the surrounding novella’s.
1. J. K. Rowling – Who else? Did I worry you into thinking that she wouldn’t make it?? Well, don’t fret, here she is. The wonder woman who made my childhood amazing and magical from my sofa. I love Harry Potter and his adventures. I am one of those people whose childhood came to an end when the last film was produced. I am on Pottermore, however, and I am one of the evil slytherins!! J. K. Rowling is an inspiration to every teenager and we love her very dearly!
