top ten authors i own the most books from

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week, we're talking about the authors we own most books from. Now, while I'll admit that compared to a lot of people I do own a lot of books, I don't have nearly as much as other book bloggers and booktubers do. So while some of these are authors that I really do own a lot of books, a good amount of them are instabuy authors - those authors whose books I ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO READ as soon as they come out.

1. J.K. Rowling - 12 books
I have the entire Harry Potter series, with doubles of the last four books, and A Casual Vacancy. Haven't picked up her Robert Galbraith books yet! 

2. Sarah Dessen - 8 books
Sarah Dessen is the first YA contemporary author I really got into, so I owe a lot of my obsession to her books. I'm missing 3 of her novels, but I'm sure they'll be added to my collection eventually. 

3. David Levithan - 6 books 
I have the books he co-wrote with John Green and Andrea Cremer, as well as four of his own works. Most of them are still sitting on my tbr shelf at the moment.

4.  Stephenie Meyer - 5 books 
Don't even judge me, you know you have them, too.

5. John Green - 5 books 
Obviously an instabuy author. I don't have Let It Snow, but I'll probably end up getting it closer to winter.

6. Gayle Forman - 4 books 
This might be cheating because I technically only have Just One Day at the moment, but Just One Year, If I Stay, and Where She Went are all currently in transit on their way to my house. So there. (Also, she really has a thing for three-word titles, doesn't she?)

7. Rainbow Rowell - 4 books 
Total instabuy. Attachments is on its way to me right now, too, and I CAN'T WAIT TO READ IT.

8. Sarah Ockler - 4 books
Loved Twenty Boy Summer and instantly had to read everything she's ever written. I've gotten really lucky with her books in the way that I'll go to the bookstore not even looking for something of hers and just  find it out of nowhere. When The Book of Broken Hearts came out in paperback I just randomly stumbled across it and almost peed myself in excitement. True story. ALSO, if #scandal is in stock at Chapters when I go tomorrow I'm totally gonna snag that, too. 

9. Morgan Matson - 3 books
I will literally read every word this woman writes, ever. Hands down. No questions asked. Bye.

10. This is a total cop-out and cheating and doesn't even count in my opinion but R.L. Stine - upwards of 20 books
Just because I have a giant bag of Fear Street books that I'm too lazy to bring to the library even though I'm never going to read them.

So, there we have it! There's a lot of other authors I have 3 books from but I feel like that's a lot of effort to list them all just for 3 books. Because it really isn't that impressive to have 3 books from the same author.

What about you? Any authors you immediately have to buy books from?
