Top Ten Tuesday #55 + Teaser Tuesday #16

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish 


This week's topic? Top 10 Authors I Own the Most Books From. For this one, I was going to do a video, but I was too lazy and didn't feel like it. So, this will be pretty boring - it's just a list. Sorry!


  1. Lemony Snicket - He clocks in at 18 books, and that's not counting the kid picture books of his I own. I was a little surprised, actually, that he was at No. 1. I know I have all of his books, but I thought another specific author would beat him out. And that author is. . . .
  2. John Flanagan - Clocking in at 16 books. So he isn't No. 1, but No. 2. I can live with that. I own all of his books, and though I don't like all of his books equally, I will always buy his books.
  3. Anthony Horowitz - 12 books. And this number will only increase, as I collect more and more of his series.
  4. Caroline Lawrence - Also clocking in at 12 books. And when I get a chance, I will buy the rest of her books.
  5. Charles Dickens - Another clocking in at 12. I think I'm only missing 3 of his books, then I'll have them all. :)
  6. Cornelia Funke - 9 books! And another author who I will always collect.
  7. Rick Riordan - 9 books. I am missing The Lighting Thief, The Sea of Monsters, and The Lost Hero. Sad, I know. I'm working on it!
  8. K. M. Grant - 7 books. I am only missing one book, and it's sadly not published in the U.S. :(
  9. Gail Carson Levine - 6 books. I also have all of her books, except the little mini princess retellings - and I will eventually get those.
  10. Jane Austen - Also clocking in at 6. I am very proud of my Jane Austen collection.

The assassin tugged at the sapphire pendant between her breasts, but the chain refused to give. He pulled harder and the chain bit into the back of Kelsea's neck. Kelsea stiffened, fury blooming from nowhere. It was a gift; her fear melted quickly and silently away. She could feel the sapphire now, a throbbing pressure that burned like a pulse inside her mind. With every jerk on the chain, Kelsea became angrier. The sapphire didn't want to be removed.
The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen (pg. 261)

    1. Ignore all of the negative reviews, because it's one of the most addicting fantasy novels I've read in a long time.

  2. Great description. Sounds like she's going to fight back - with fury!
    My Tuesday post features THE MOST UNSUITABLE WIFE.

    1. It's really good, Valentina! I don't know why it's gotten so many negative reviews on Goodreads, because it's really awesome so far, and I'm a little over halfway through it.

  5. Glad you're enjoying that book, I thought it sounded rather good. I find it weird how certain books gets a lot of flack for apparently no reason. It makes one wary of trying them :P

    I also nominated you for the Sunshine Award =) (view here) http://hazelwest.blogspot.com/2014/07/sunshine-award.html

    1. It's good; I think you would like it. The beginning is a little slow, but it doesn't take too long to pick up, and Kelsea goes from being a character you feel mostly indifferent to, to someone you constantly cheer on.

      Yay! Nominations! :)

  6. Uh-oh, I don't think you want to make her angry...

    Mine this week is a drama about a woman with Borderline Personality Disorder (and there may be a bit of romance in there too...)

  8. Totally forgot about Lemony Snicket and J. K. Rowling. Probably because they're not in prominent places on my shelves (Snicket is actually in the closet in my classroom).

    1. Snicket will always be very prominent on my shelves. I'll always be a Snicketeer. ;)

  9. Great list! And you counted and everything! Mine was a little more of a guessing game. ;)

    1. Well, it's easy to tally books up when I have them all in marching order on shelves. ;)
