Top Ten Tuesday – July 29, 2014

toptentuesday

Well it’s only been forever since I last did a Top Ten Tuesday post! Thought I’d jump back in this week 🙂

The topic this week is … Ten Authors I Own The Most Books From

Okay, so I have this little problem with book series. I am obsessed. And nine times out of ten I will collect all the books in the series before I even know if I will enjoy the series. What can I say … I am probably a book hoarder as my husband likes to tell me 🙂

Here’s my list:

  1. John Sandford … I have 18 of his books. Eighteen. I am intending on reading all of his Lucas Davenport books. And I have nearly all of them.
  2. Tom Clancy … 14 of his books. I collected a lot of his books in the hopes that my husband would read them. He has yet to read them and I can’t seem to part with them. I keep hoping I will turn my husband into a reader…
  3. Michael Connelly … clocking in at 11 books. I am reading through his Harry Bosch series and have most of those books.
  4. Clive Cussler … I have 9 Cussler books. I enjoy his books, especially his Dirk Pitt series … I just don’t read them often enough.
  5. Steve Martini … I have 8 of his books from the series that I can’t even tell you who the main character is. Pitiful, right? Obviously I had intended on reading this series, but if I can’t even remember what the character’s name is …
  6. Perri O’Shaughnessy … 7 of her books. I have only read the first one in this series and while I did enjoy it, I obviously didn’t enjoy it enough to get right on that second book.
  7. Vince Flynn … 6 books. I really enjoyed the first few Mitch Rapp books, but then somewhere along the line I got sidetracked and haven’t read any more of Flynn’s books.
  8. Ted Bell … 6 books. I read the first book in the Alexander Hawke series, and while I enjoyed it, I have yet to read on in this series … despite me having almost all the books.
  9. Brad Thor … 5 books. I have gone back and forth with the Scot Harvath series for ages. I read the first 3 books and enjoyed them. But somewhere along the line in the 3rd book I lost interest and have really considered not continuing with this series.
  10. Stuart Woods … 5 books. I recently discovered Stone Barrington and have accumulated books 3-7 in this series.

So there is my list. You can tell I’m a serious series reader. And I have a bad habit of reading the first couple of books, accumulating the next gazillion in the series, and then not going anywhere else with it. Oh well.

  1. I am a huge series reader myself. I do the same thing with starting and then not finishing a series….or starting in the middle of a series which I hate doing (but still do thanks to review copies). Lol!

  2. My list would have been very different if I was a series gal. I actually JUST got rid of Evanovich collection because after all these years I’ve only read her first. Though Harry Potter is a popular character on my shelves!
