*I realized in doing this that I don't own that many books of the same author!*
7 Megan McCafferty books -- I own the whole Jessica Darling series though at the moment my sister has a couple of those books plus Bumped and Thumped.
6 Jodi Picoult books -Hilarious because I've never read a single JP book! Someone gave me all of them except one which I picked up at a used book sale. (Have you read her? Where to start?)
16 J.K. Rowling books -- I own the whole Harry Potter series in English as well as in Dutch, The Casual Vacancy and The Cuckoo's Calling.
11 Jill Mansell books -- Jill Mansell is an insta-buy author for me, I love her books!
21 Eloisa James books - I don't even know how I have so many! I have all of her series books, so there is 7 in the Desperate Duchessess, 4 in the Essex Sisters, all her fairy tale retellings and a bunch of short ebooks brings that total so high. But what can I say? I love her books!
18 Sherrilyn Kenyon, Johanna Lindsey and Julia Quinn books - So I had a tie for second according to Goodreads, and these numbers make a lot of sense. Kenyon has all of her Dark-Hunter books. I must have gotten to 16 before stopping (I know I have two of her non-DH series). There is way over 20 books in that series now, I just stopped buying them. With Johanna Lindsey, I started collecting her Mallory novels back when I just started to get into reading romance, so there are 11 or so of those. Then there are all the one off's of hers I have. I would go to library sales as a teen and pick up anything with her name on it, so this makes sense. Finally Julia Quinn, whose books I buy instantly for the most part. This one would be higher I think if my sister didn't take over the reigns in buying the most recent series. She's a romance author who I know is going to make me laugh. The 18 books of hers that I own are some of my favorites.
11 Bill Bryson books -- A Walk in the Woods, At Home, The Mother Tongue, The Lost Continent, and Made in America are all the ones I own in print, while Shakespeare: The World as Stage, Notes from Small Island, Neither Here Nor There, I'm a Stranger Here Myself, The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid, and One Summer: America, 1927 are all the ones I own on audio CD. I am a big big fan. Love.
4 John Green books -- 5 if you count my two copies of Paper Towns, one in print and one on audio. The only one I don't have, actually, is Looking for Alaska, which I've read anyway. Oh, and I guess Let It Snow, which was written with Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle, and is also adorable.
9 Mary Higgins Clark books
