Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week, a new topic is chosen and people are allowed to make their own lists.
I haven’t done a Top Ten Tuesday in a while and I thought this week’s topic would allow me to showcase a few more of the authors on my bookshelves that I don’t usually do. Without further ado, let’s start!
Meg Cabot – 16
There are quite a few reasons why I own so many Meg Cabot books, the first being that she’s written so many! Meg Cabot’s books were among the first YA novels I read so she became my immediate go-to author when I wanted anything to read. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book by her I haven’t loved!
Even though, in comparison to many of the other authors on this list, John Green has written few novels, I happen to have many copies of each. I just can’t help myself!
Kit Berry is a very obvious inclusion on this list, because she is my favourite author and also because I have multiple copies, just like I do of John Green’s books. Every copy feels like one of my children and whilst I love lending them out and getting other people to read them, I always feel reluctant to give them out because of how much they meant to me.
Ally Carter’s Heist Society and Gallagher Girls books make up this part of my collection. I’ve read all 6 of the Gallagher Girls books and own a copy of each, so that makes up the majority of my Ally Carter collection. I also have the three Heist Society novels, which I love! Ally Carter writes amazingly.
I obviously (I can’t write that without thinking about Snape) have to own all of the Harry Potter books, and I also have a copy of The Tales of Beedle the Bard, which I purchased recently. I really want to re-read at least the first book soon – maybe I’ll write a post about my Harry Potter experiences one day?
I absolutely love Cassandra Clare’s books so I own most of her books, excluding Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince which I borrowed from my library. The books are really big so take up a lot of room – I just can’t bear to get rid of them (not that I would)!
I own the box set of the A Song of Ice and Fire series, which is why I own so many of George R. R. Martin’s books without having actually read them all. I’m just about to start reading A Clash of Kings again though, and I can’t wait to delve back into the world of Westeros!
Maggie Stiefvater has been one of my favourite authors for a few years now, so it’s no surprise that I own the majority of her books! Other than The Raven Boys, which I borrowed from my library, I own all of her books!
Rainbow Rowell is another obvious inclusion! I own multiple copies of Fangirl, and all of her other books too. I’m a huge fan of hers!
Story time: I cannot get rid of my Stephanie Meyer books. I love The Host so I want to hold on to that (and it has Max Irons on it. I may possibly stare at it from time to time…), but the Twilight books are kind of stuck to me, and they will not let go. Oh well!

Great list Lucy. I keep intending to read Maggie Stiefvater, but I haven’t got around to it yet. I fail!!! I also think that I should try The Mortal Instruments series. Hmmm… too many books, too little time!

J.K. Rowling seems to be on everyone’s list – for obvious reasons. These are some really great authors, though it reminds me that I need to keep reading. Most of these I’ve only read one book from hahaha.

I am desperately saving up to get more Green and Rowell. I need them like, now.
Great list thanks for sharing 🙂

This was such a fun prompt this week!
I love Rainbow Rowell (I’m reading Landline right now!) but she didn’t make it onto my list–I’ve gotten all her books from the library.

I did have the full JK Rowling set… but my collection has slowly dissipated to a mere two, whether through petty book thieves AKA my brother, or they have hidden themselves in a cupboard somewhere I don’t know!

Woah that’s a lot of Meg Cabot! JKR and Cassandra Clare both hit my lists too with 10 and 9 respectively 😀

I’ve never read Meg Cabot, but I agree that it’s great to have a go-to author. =) Mine changes from time to time, though. The last one who had that honour was G.K. Chesterton . . . but since I mostly read his stuff on Project Gutenberg, he didn’t make my Tenner this week.

Thanks for sharing a great list, Lucy! I’ve read a lot of Meg Cabot, but I actually don’t own any of her books, which surprises me! I also need to get more Maggie Stiefvater!

Awesome list! I have heard a lot of great things about Maggie Stiefvater so hopefully I will get round to reading some of the her books. Also, I think this is really bad but I actually have never read the Harry Potter series. Oops. I promise I will though 😉
