~ Top 12 Authors I Own (May 2017) ~

I used to read a lot as a kid, but then I kind of slowed down in high school when required readings, Asian dramas, and K-pop entered my life. I pretty much stopped reading for fun in college because of school, work, events, and my horrid binge watching habits. About two years ago, I tried to get back into reading. While getting back into reading, I stumbled onto a few bookstagram accounts which led me to the world of booktube. After learning about the existence of this community, I really got back on track with reading which is bringing me lots of joy. If you have read my previous life blog posts, you might know that I came back from Japan about a month ago after having lived/worked there for almost three years. Honestly, I didn’t bring a lot of things back with me, but I have a list of things including a ton of books I need to buy again. Therefore, I am now trying to build up my library from before, but it is a little difficult since I am back in my parents’ house and am still looking for a new job. So, I am sure that by the end of this year and in the next year, my library at present will have undergone major changes. However, before those changes take place, I want to mark down the top authors I currently own and see how it will differ later on since the majority of these authors/books are from my childhood. Wow, this introduction was way too long, so let’s start the list already.

12-10) Sarah J Maas & Jenny Han & Mary Pope Osborne – 4

9-7) Rick Riordan & Stephenie Meyer & Sharon Dennis Wyeth – 5

6) Ally Carter – 6

5) Cassandra Clare – 7

4) Jack Canfield / Mark Victor Hansen – 11

3-2) JK Rowling & Ann M Martin 11

1) Francine Pascal – 13
