Top Ten Tuesday #88 – If I had the Money, I’d Buy…

Mom-Top Ten

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. They’d love to share their lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

This week’s topic is “Ten Books You’d Buy Right This Second If Someone Handed You A Fully Loaded Gift Card.” If someone gave me a gift card and said to go buy books, he wouldn’t have to tell me twice! I’ve got a list of books I’d love to dig into as soon as possible, but that requires money. So if someone gave me a fully loaded gift card, I would completely my book series/collections that are already on my bookshelves. Here are the books I’d buy to do that, in no particular order.

Ten Books I’d Buy Now If I Had a Fully Loaded Gift Card

Throne of Glass and The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas: I adore the Throne of Glass series and thanks to BookOutlet.com I’ve slowly been collecting the hardback copies. I only lack the first book of the series and the prequel novellas. Technically I own them on my Kindle but the OCD in me needs to complete the series on my shelves 😉

Splintered and Unhinged by A.G. Howard: I loved this retelling of Wonderland. I read them originally through the library and when it was going to be a several week (over a month) wait for me to read the next book I went in search of Ensnared. I found it in a used bookstore and bought it immediately. I love to have the others as well.

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell: I have yet to read a Rainbow Rowell book, but I do own them all except for this one. I’d like to add it to my shelves knowing that one day I will read it 😀

After You by Jojo Moyes: I loved Me Before You when I read it a few years ago and haven’t had the chance to read the sequel yet. I’d snatch this book up in a heart beat!

Avenging and Raging by Holly Kelly: I love the Rising series. I’ve always enjoyed a good paranormal read, but this was my first time reading a series about mermaids. Kelly does it beautifully though. Each book builds on the story of the last one, but can also be read as a standalone. I can’t wait to continue reading them!

Mirrored by Alex Flinn: I picked up the entire Kendra series on BookOutlet.com last summer. I’ve slowly found that I love these retellings of classic fairy tales. And I have a feeling this one will be no exception.

Puffin Chalk Classics: Have you seen these?! I love the classic stories, but I love these editions! The covers are just so pretty ? I want them all on my shelves!

Your turn! What books would you buy if you had a gift card? Comment below

  1. I recommend After You – it doesn’t have quite the emotional heft of Me Before You, but is still a really worthwhile read. I haven’t yet read any Sarah J. Maas, but I MUST – far too many folks recommend her writing. I also like the look of The Rising series. Thank you for sharing:)
