Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I own the most books of

29 Jul


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  Each week they post a new list for bloggers to answer.  This week’s topics is Top Ten Authors I Own the Most Books Of.  I am particularly looking at the authors I have the most books from in my classroom library.  As the majority of my collection is packed in boxes at school, I will do my best from memory with authors I know I have multiples of in my classroom library (in no particular order).

1. Laurie Halse Anderson 

I have copies of all five of her YA books, including multiples of some, plus her three historical fiction books in my classroom library.

2. Walter Dean Myers

Off the top of my head, I can think of 8 or 9 different titles I have from the great Walter Dean Myers.  His books really hit home with a number of my students and they love them.

3. John Green

I love his writing.  Students love his writing.  I keep copies of his different novels on the shelves for students to enjoy.

4. Jodi Picoult

I have read a few of her books myself and can always find her titles at book sales.  I have lost count of how many of her books are in my classroom library and they are pretty popular for students.

5. Ellen Hopkins 

She has 8 or 9 verse novels for young adults (with another on the way this year!) and I think I have at least 7 or 8 of them in my library.  Another popular author I like to keep stocked as so many students gravitate to her work.

6. Sarah Dessen

Sarah has many great books to choose from and she is one that is so popular I keep as many titles as possible on my shelves for my students.

7. AS King

I think I am at the point I will buy any book she writes.  I have four different titles from her, and they all go through the rounds among my students.

8. Patricia McCormick

Patricia McCormick deals with a number of different issues that are important for students to read.  I have copies of Sold, Cut, Never Fall Down, and Purple Heart by her.

9. Jo Knowles 

This is another author that deals with issues students want to read.  Her books are ones that keep my students glued until the last page.  I have four of her books.

10. Sharon M Draper

Draper is an author that has many books to choose from and again deals with topics students want to and enjoy reading.  I have at least 6 different books from Draper in my collection.
