Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/ meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This weeks topic is one that has become much more relevant over the past year when I have begun to both borrow more books from my local library, and listen to more audiobooks. Therefore, there have been quite a few books that I have loved but unfortunately do not own a copy of myself, no matter how much I would love to, and so I am very happy that this TTT allows me to talk about all of those books today.
So here are seven books that I’ve read that I’d like in my personal library!
As this was one of my favourite books of last year, its pretty clear that I would love to be able to own a physical copy of this gorgeous story so that I can easily revisit it, or just simply stare at its beauty sitting on my shelf. I originally read this book on audiobook, and so the chance to physically read it would also be an added bonus to owning this one myself.
Most of my spontaneous reads come from either the library or Scribd, as I am much more adventurous when I don’t have to buy the book myself, and so unfortunately that is why I don’t own a copy of this spectacularly creepy thriller for myself. I am even more eager to add it to my shelves now as M. A. Bennett has now released a sequel to Stags, and so having both books side by side would just be so much nicer than just the second book.
Whats more annoying about this one is that had I bought the book originally rather than borrowing it from my library, I would most likely have the now gorgeous out-of-print UK hardcover on my shelves. As with alot of other books on this list, I now own both of the other books in this series that are currently out, and so I would obviously love to have the first one as well to complete my collection.
This is another book that I borrowed from my library, as I was unsure whether or not I would enjoy it, and so didn’t want to risk buying it for myself if it didn’t end up being a story for me. However, I absolutely loved this sci-fi and now am desperate to read the sequel, and so it would be so nice to own both books in this series rather than just Wildcard.
Another borrow from the library as I was once again unsure whether or not I would enjoy this contemporary that ended up blowing me away with its beautiful story and characters that I instantly fell in love with it. Because of that, having this book in my personal library would allow me to return to it whenever I wanted to, something that I would love to be able to in the future.
For once it is actually the last book in this series rather than the first that I don’t own, as after being unsure about whether I would even finish these books at all, I spontaneously picked this one up on audiobook one day, and have never gotten around to picking up a physical copy of this concluding novel. This is another instance where I would both just love to own the entire series myself, and so having this in my personal library would just make me very happy.
I read this entire fantasy series through my local library, and so I would love to be able to own all of these books, particularly the first, and have them sitting proudly on my shelves. I adored the complexity of this world and the many different characters we get to meet throughout these three books, and so it would be really nice to be able to add them to my personal library.
