Each week, the girls over at The Broke and the Bookish think up a fun theme for the week and participating bloggers around the net join in. The theme for this week is:

Top Tenish Authors I Own the Most Books By

I was surprised by this week’s results! I knew one author would dominate, but some of the others surprised me!

37 JK Rowling books (duh. Knew she was gonna top the list! Harry Potter: I have all 7 American books in physical, audiobook, and ebook format. 4 British English, 3 French, 1 Spanish, and 1 German. Plus the extra books from the HP realm. Plus her three adult books – 1 audiobook as well )

28 Cassandra Clare books (physical, audio, ebook)

27? Melissa de la Cruz books (I can’t remember which audiobooks/ebooks I have!)

26 Robert Jordan books (Hubby has physical & audio)

22 CS Lewis books (Two complete sets of The Chronicles of Narnia in physical from plus audiobooks. Audio of Mere Christianity)

22 Eoin Colfer books (ebooks, physical, audiobook, ARC)

19 Stephenie Meyer books (ebooks, audio, physical)

15? Jerry B Jenkins books (I can’t remember which Left Behind books I have on ebook!)

Please Be Kind, Rewind: 16-22 February 2014 February 22, 2014

I am finally getting ahead of schedule as far as getting things up on the blog. Yay! I’ve been ahead and paper for a while, but now I’m getting things typed up and scheduled. I have some giveaways planned in the next couple of weeks so keep your eyes open! Thanks to a bit of a reading slump and the Olympics, I haven’t been getting much reading done the last few weeks like I would have liked. I just can’t get into any of my ARCs so I decided to jump ship and work on knocking out some books on my TBR. I’m hoping this will lighten up the mood and rekindle that fire to devour every delicious ARC there is in my review pile! I’ve also developed an addiction to The Americans show. I’ve always meant to watch it, but never got around to it. Thanks to a well placed commercial while I had the Sochi Olympics in mind I checked Amazon Prime for it. I’ve been binge watching the first season to prep for the upcoming season. It’s AMAZING. Do you have any good spy book recommendations? It doesn’t matter what era (though the Cold War is always a good one!), just please hook me up!
