DISCUSSION: Most Owned Authors

Hello and welcome back! This is part two of my author discussions. In my first post, I talked about my most read authors and today I’m talking about my most owned authors. In part three, I’ll be talking about my auto-buy/favourite authors.

As well as noting how much books I owned from each author, I’ll also mention how many of those books I’ve read. So let’s go!

Firstly, let's start with authors that I own three books of.
Nansi Kunze - Mishaps, Dangerously Placed and Kill the Music. I've read all of these and unfortunately, these are the only books Nansi has out at the moment. I NEED MORE.
Marie Lu – Legend, Prodigy and Champion. I've read both Legend and Prodigy and I'm currently halfway through Champion.
Cynthia Hand – Unearthly, Hallowed and Boundless. I've only read Unearthly so far, mainly because I LOVED it and I'm scared for the series to end.
Tahereh Mafi – Shatter Me, Unravel Me and Ignite. Same as Nansi. I would happily read anything this woman put out.
Marissa Meyer – Cinder, Scarlet and Cress. I've only read Cinder so far (I KNOW!), but I'm working on it.
Aldous Huxley – Brave New World, Crome Yellow and Antic Hay. I've only read Brave New World, but considering it's one of my favourite books I think that makes up for it...right?
Libba Bray - A Great and Terrible Beauty, Rebel Angels, A Sweet Far Thing. I've read the first two books and I'm about halfway through A Sweet Far Thing- it's 800 pages though, so it's a slow read.

Now to authors with four books...
Emile Zola - Germinal, The Dream, L'oeuvre and...Germinal. I seriously adore Zola, and while I haven't technically finished any of these...well, I WILL! Also, the reason I own two Germinal's is because one is in French and the other is English.
Becca Fitzpatrick - Hush, Hush, Crescendo, Silence and Finale. I've read all of these, and really enjoyed them.
Maureen Johnson - The Last Little Blue Envelope, The Name of the Star, The Madness Underneath and The Keys to the Golden Firebird. Wow, Maureen Johnson has really long titles...Anyway, I've only read The Name of the Star out of these.
F. Scott Fitzgerald - The Great Gatsby, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Beautiful and the Damned and Tender is the Night. I've only read Gatsby out of these, though I have read it twice!

Now onto five books!
Maggie Stiefvater - Shiver, Linger, Forever, The Scorpio Races and The Raven Boys. I've read all of these, except Forever (which I'll probably never read).
John Green - The Fault in Our Stars, Looking for Alaska, Paper Towns, An Abundance of Katherines and...The Fault in Our Stars, again. I've only read TFiOS and Looking for Alaska, plus half of Paper Towns.
Charles Dickens - Dickens at Christmas, Great Expectations, David Copperfield, Oliver Twist and The Pickwick Papers. Dickens is one of my favourite authors, though I've only read Great Expectations and the first 150 pages of Pickwick so far.
Jessica Shirvington - Embrace, Entice, Empower, Disruption and Between the Lives. I've read Embrace, Entice and Empower but I haven't quite got to the other two yet.

Now authors with six books.
Cassandra Clare - City of Fallen Angels, City of Lost Souls, Clockwork Angel, Clockwork Prince, Clockwork Princess and The Shadowhunter's Codex. I am slowly getting rid of these, at least The Mortal Instuments series (I'm keeping the Infernal Devices). I've read all of them but the Codex.
Cecelia Ahern - P.S. I Love You, The Gift, The Time of My Life, One Hundred Names, How to Fall in Love and The Book of Tomorrow. I haven't actually read any of these...I blame the library.

Now with seven books.
Eva Pohler - The Gatekeeper's Sons, The Gatekeeper's Challenge, The Gatekeeper's Daughter, The Gatekeeper's House, The Gatekeeper's Secret, The Purgatorium and Gray's Domain. I've read all of these, but two.
Rick Riordan - The Lightning Thief, The Sea of Monsters, The Titan's Curse, The Battle of the Labyrinth, The Last Olympian and The Lost Hero. I've only read the first three Percy Jackson books so far, but I'm working on it!

Now with ten, eleven, twelve and thirteen...
Richelle Mead - Vampire Aacdemy, Frostbite, Shadow Kiss, Blood Promise, Spirit Bound, Last Sacrifice, Bloodlines, The Golden Lily, The Indigo Spell and Gameboard of the Gods. I've read the entire VA series, plus the first two books in the Bloodlines series.
Virginia Woolf - A Room of One's Own x 2, To The Lighthouse, Between the Acts, Three Guineas, Mrs Dalloway,  Jacob's Room, The Waves, The Years and Orlando. I haven't ready of these... *dies of shame*
Daphne Du Maurier - Rebecca, Jamaica Inn, Frenchman's Creek, Don't Look Now and Other Stories, The Flight of the Falcon, Mary Anne, The Parasites, Julius, I'll Never Be Young Again, Castle Dor and The Rendezvous and Other Stories. I've only read Rebecca and Jamaica Inn, but they are two of my all-time favourites.
J.K Rowling - The entire Harry Potter series, Quidditch Through the Ages, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Tales of Beedle the Bard, The Casual Vacancy and The Cuckoo's Calling. I've read all of these, except for the last two.
Lemony Snicket - All thirteen books from A Series of Unfortunate Events (except book six) and The Unoffical Autobiography. I've read all of these, including book six and I love them.

Finally, my number one most owned author is....

*drum roll*

AGATHA CHRISTIE, with a total of 24 books. (This is crazy!) I think I've only read about 4 of the books I own because I always end up borrowing her books from the library.

That's it for this part! I hope to see you all next time with the third and final part of this little discussion series. See you all then!


  1. I don't own any books from any of these authors except for Aldous Huxley whose novel Brave New World I do have. I had to read it for class two years ago and I really enjoyed it as well. I think I might even reread it sometime soon. I haven't really looked into any of his other books either.

  2. YOU OWN A LOT OF BOOKS. I AM JEALOUS. I only have Shatter Me, and then TWO BOOKS from Marissa Meyer, Cinder and Scarlet. And then TWO BOOKS from Leigh Bardugo. And then that's it. I own others here and there, but not much from a single author!!

  3. I can't believe that I've never actually read an Agatha Christie book. I've seen TV shows based on them and whatnot but never picked one up. I really should remedy that!
    Okay - you need to finish reading your Marissa Meyer books. They get even better after Cinder (and you get to meet Captain Thorne!). As for your Libba Bray books, I've only read The Diviners by her and thought it was great.

  4. I have a mixture of books in so many different formats that I honestly have no idea which authors I own the most of. I'd say that Richelle Mead is up there in my list as well though. :D
