Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish that other bloggers are welcome to join in, to create Top Ten lists on varying topics. This week it’s Top Ten Books We’d Buy Right This Second If Someone Handed Us Fully Loaded Gift Cards.
1 Leather bound Narnia
I’ve been on the hunt for a pretty copy of The Chronicles of Narnia for years. This one looks like it’s spectacular! and several hundred pounds…
2 Ravenclaw themed Harry Potter
But I do think they’re only available in american. Where-by I mean book 1 is Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone instead of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone which is sad and not at all acceptable for my shelves (sorry Americans…)
3 Matching set of Valdemar books
I believe they’re being re-published with matching cover styles. The majority of my collection were bought from sellers and the new ones are all of a type, but that’s a lot of books to re-buy. I’ve saved up and done it with another series, but I always think about the other things I could have got, VS having a nice matching set. I’m still on the fence about what kind of idea that was…
I especially don’t want any of that omnibus stuff either.
4 A Fancy copy of Pride and Prejudice
No idea if I actually like this one yet, sort of scared to find out, but I’d love to own a beautiful edition. Unfortunately it seem that the cloth bound one is green and yellow – Not my favourite colours!
5 New Old versions of The Nightworld Series
Mine are pretty crumbly at this point. I found the first at a book fair in near perfect condition and with a loaded gift card I’d sit and order copy after copy till I got the covers I wanted in a satisfactory condition…NO OMNIBUSES!
6 Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
I’m presuming this magic gift card can get us anything we want? And I want this soooo bad! It feels like I’ve been waiting forever for book two! Is it September yet?
7 Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
I’ve seen some great reviews and some terrible reviews of Nevernight and when a book splits the reading community so dramatically I can’t help but want to see why. It’s difficult to part with your hard earned cash when your not sure whether you will love or hate a book but if I was given the cash I would definitely consider buying this one just to see what the fuss is all about. I haven’t read any other books by Jay Kristoff but thanks to this book he’s on my radar now.
8 The Newest Cover Set of Delirium by Lauren Oliver
I know it’s petty but my cover of Delirium doesn’t bloody match anything! I got this cover:
I really enjoyed Lauren Oliver’s writing and I really enjoyed the story but when book two came out it was a completely different design. That really annoyed me and so I refused to buy it until I was sure book 3 was going to be the same design. But when book three came out there was yet another design available. Unable to choose which covers to get I never bought or finished this series.
Now there’s yet another new cover design but I quite like this one. If I could I’d buy this set and finally finishing this trilogy.
9 The Whole Discworld Series by Terry Pratchett in Hardback
The Discworld Hardback Library editions are beautiful and if I could afford it I’d buy the whole set. They’re LUSH!
10 The Princess and The Goblin by George MacDonald
This edition is the new Puffin Classic and I love it. The artwork is by Hari and Deepti. I’d love to own a piece by them but I would also love to own this book. My Grandad used to read it to us when we were small but I have no idea where that copy has gone.
