Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books You’d Buy Right This Second

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, so go see what other bloggers decided to write about for this week’s prompt!

Loopy Divider Top

This prompt was the easiest thing for me to write, even though it’s a week late. This week is a catch up week for TTT, and I had another post to put up when this prompt was due, so I just pushed it back. I hope you still enjoy it!

I have a list of books on Goodreads of books that I plan to buy when I get giftcards, which I regularly do, thanks to the B&N credit card which I use regularly. Some of these books I need to replace, due to very bad condition of my current copy. Some I read as ARC’s and absolutely loved. Some are just books that need buying! I’ve read all of these and loved them, though.

Lab Girl by Hope Jahren

I read Lab Girl after reading an NPR article about it, and then seeing it on my library’s new book shelf, and it was really good.

Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

I currently own a copy of this as an e-book, but I love the artwork and want to be able to loan it to people. Check out my review here!

Lets Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir by Jenny Lawson

I read Jenny Lawson’s second book, Furiously Happy, first, and it rocked my world. I knew I liked Jenny, from her blog, but I had no idea how much I would love it. You can read my review here. I picked up Let’s Pretend This Never Happened from the library, and while it didn’t change my life as much, it was still really good, and a book I’d love to have on my shelves.

The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare

I recently wrote about this book in my #tbt post, so you can see how ratty my copy of this book has gotten. Well-loved doesn’t cover it anymore.

Heart’s Blood by Juliet Marillier

I have been wanting to read this Beauty and the Beast retelling for like 3 months, but my library doesn’t have a copy and neither do I! It’s shameful! I need to read it again!

The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater

I’ve recently purchased The Raven Boys and Blue Lily, Lily Blue,  so this is the only book I don’t own in the series. I need to complete my collection!

Silver in the Blood by Jessica Day George

Russian culture, werewolves and teenage girls? Count me in! This was another library read, and I loved it. I’m planning a review of it for October, since it’s magical and spooky.

Devil and the Bluebird by Jennifer Mason-Black

I read this and reviewed it as an ARC and I really enjoyed it, so now that it’s out, it’s time to buy it!

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

I’ve been reading this series lately, and it’s just good, fluffy fun to read, so I want to have a copy for re-reading.

  1. You are so clever to maintain a list of books you want to buy when you get a chance. I do that soooort of, in that I maintain a running birthday/Christmas list (I know that sounds insane but please believe me when I say that my family can get a trifle militant about birthday/Christmas lists) and occasionally remember to add books to it. But it’s all sort of half-assed and unmethodical.

    1. That’s not insane! I have a running list too, for myself and for others! It’s a Google doc so I can’t ever lose it and it includes links for easy purchasing. I never really want much for my birthday or Christmas – I’m a girl of simple pleasures. Buy me books, sweaters and Wizard of Oz stuff. Mine just get’s added to when I think about it, so I know there’s stuff that I want that I’m missing.
