This week’s topic: Most-Owned Authors

AKA – Authors We Love




Lyn’s Picks

Cynthia Voigt

This author was recommended to me when I was in 5th grade by a teacher I loved. I found Homecoming in the library of my middle school, and I loved the hard, gritty edge of her stories. The author also shines some light on learning disabilities, and for the first time in my public school career, I felt better about myself.

Laini Taylor

Seriously, Laini Taylor needs a religion dedicated to her. Her stories are amazing, and she gave one my favorite fictional female characters, and one of my top romances. Seriously, read these books.

Rick Riordan

Outside of Twilight, the Percy Jackson series gave me a series to help ease me back into the reading scene. This series also totes another favorite romance of mine (I do love PerBeth, but there is one that is even BETTER), and I loved the humor of the entire series. Also, the author discusses dyslexia (AWESOME) and he hails from the one of the better areas of Texas. YES!

Marcus Sedgwick

This name wrote my favorite books, ever (Midwinterblood), so it was natural to go bat-guano cray-cray for his other books.

Claire Legrand

Even though it is only 3 books, I have bought Year of Shadows numerous times, so she earned her spot on this list. Claire is everything I aspire to be, and her writing is so beyond amazing that there is no word in existence that I can use to properly label her art.



Bekka’s Picks

dr seussDr Seuss

I own no less than 25 books by Dr Seuss, but I wasn’t about to picture them ALL.  So I picked my favorite three from when I was a kid.  Green Eggs and Ham was the first book I read on my own, so that book, and this author, will always have a special place in my heart.

cate tiernanCate Tiernan

I’ve talked before about how I’ve read a ton of her books, and these are the ones I own.  Fifteen total.  I’m missing the last book in the Sweep series and I’d really love to read her Immortal Beloved books one day.

jk rowlingJ.K. Rowling

I own 11 JK Rowling books, including the Harry Potter series, a few Harry Potter extras, and The Casual Vacancy.  Do I really need to go into why?

charlaine harrisCharlaine Harris

I gave up buying these books at book 10, and gave up reading around book 8.  Maybe I’ll do a reread one day, as these books are a ton of fun.

louise rennisonLouise Rennison

Where would I be without Louise Rennison or Georgia Nicolson? Having a lot less lolz for sure.  I own ten books by Louise (though at one point I owned 11, but gave away the first Tallulah Casey book.)

    I’m sure that if more of us had kept not just our first chapter novels, but also all our picture books from childhood, Dr. Seuss would have been on more lists.

    Not to mention Richard Scarry . . . And Stan and Jan Berenstain . . . And Beatrix Potter . . . And so on . . . 😉

  2. Go Sookie collectors! I WISH I’d stopped buying and reading at 8. 10 and 13 are honestly some of the worst books I’ve ever suffered through.

    I left my Harry Potter’s when I moved,(younger sib,) but I feel lonely without them. It was absurd to me not to list them, but right now I only have 2!
