Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week’s theme is:
August 27th: Books I’ve Read That I’d Like In My Personal Library
There are often times when I borrow a book from the library or read the e-book version and decide that I’d like a physical copy because I enjoyed it so much. Here are just a few books I really want to pick up.
Sorcery of Thorns
I literally finished this yesterday on audio, and now I’m looking at prices for the hardback. This story was so exciting, funny, and dramatic, and I would low-key give my life for Nathaniel and Elisabeth.
To Kill A Kingdom
I seem to have been talking about this book non-stop for the last couple of weeks, but the impending release of Into The Crooked Place has reminded me how much I loved it. I read the e-book originally, so I guess it’s time to pick up a physical copy.
The Candle and the Flame
I only read this last month and already I want to get a physical copy. I loved the main characters, the world, and that cover is TOO MUCH.
This is the same story as above. Read the e-book, really enjoyed it, need to by a physical copy. Except with this one I read it in 2017 and STILL haven’t got the paperback. What am I doing.
I was on the blog tour for Bloom when it first released, so I was lucky enough to be sent an e-ARC. And I loved it so much, but I still haven’t bought it???
When Dimple Met Rishi
You know the story. Read the e-book. Enjoyed the e-book immensely. Squealed. Made heart eyes.
Haven’t got round to buying the paperback.
Busily cursing myself.
The Weight of the Stars
I’m a poor excuse for a human because I have not. bought. this. book. yet. I borrowed it from the library and had so much fun reading about this band of wonderfully queer misfits.
I actually already own a copy of this, but I own the older cover. I’d really like to get a version of the new cover so it matches my version of I Was Born For This.
The Music of What Happens
Me: *phones up Waterstones*
Waterstones clerk: Hello?
Me: Hi, I read this on audio a few months back and it was great so I’d now like to order one pretty US hardback please.
Do Not Say We Have Nothing
Oh look. What’s that I see before me? Is it another book that I borrowed from my library and loved but haven’t picked up a physical copy for my shelves?
Yes, yes it is.
Which books do you want to get physical copies of?
