Top Ten Tuesday is brought to you by the amazing Jamie over at The Broke and the Bookish! This week, here are the top ten authors I own the most books from!

- J.K. Rowling – I think it goes without saying that the Harry Potter series, and all of the short stories/books (including The Tales of Beetle the Bard, etc) make up a huge part of my collection. Me and every other person, apparently.
- C.S. Lewis – The entire Chronicles of Narnia series is about 7 books, and as I’m a huge fan of the classic series, I have a beautiful little box set that I love.
- Haruki Murakami – I have basically every single book he’s ever written, whether it’s on my shelf or on my tablet. I find his work beautiful, lyrical, and just plain strange.
- Neil Gaiman – same as above, really. My next major purchase will be the Sandman series – and then he’ll probably be the author I own the most books for.
- John Green - Since I started working at Penguin, I’ve read the rest of John Green’s backlist. I’m still working on some, but I do have a big pile of those books!
- Thomas Hardy – I am a bit of a Victorian literature buff, and Thomas Hardy is my favorite of that era. I’ll be collecting the rest of his works, too.
- Roald Dahl – Growing up, I loved Dahl. Now that I’m at Penguin, I’ve started buying the full collection (at a discount) so I can complete my collection!
- George R.R. Martin – The Game of Thrones books take up a huge amount of space on my shelf (so many pages!) so it’s difficult to leave him off.
- W. Somerset Maugham – I collect first editions of his work, so I’ve got a nice little stash.
- Robin McKinley – Her fairy-tale inspired books make me happy, so of course I own most of them…
