Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books I’d Buy Right This Second if Someone Handed Me a Fully Loaded Gift Card.
Honestly this week’s list is pretty much just my list of books on my to-buy list and all of these I will be buying soon whether I have a gift card or not. However after July and August and YALC I’ve had to put myself on a book buying ban so it will be a while before most of these are in my basket on Amazon ready to be ordered.
The Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness
This is next on my to-buy list. I haven’t read many of Ness’s books, so far only The Rest Of Us Just Live Here and More Than This, but I have heard amazing things about his work especially the Chaos Walking trilogy. I really want to buy this series and get started on them to see what all the fuss is about.
The Sin Eater’s Daughter by Melinda Salisbury
I have already read The Sin Eater’s Daughter. I got a copy from the library when it was first released. I did really enjoy it but then it seemed to fall to the back of my mind and I have yet to buy for myself the first book in the series or the second, which I still need to read as well. Plus the covers are gorgeous.
Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children Series by Ransom Riggs
This is another series, like the Chaos Walking trilogy, which is next on my to-buy list. I’ve heard great things about these books and I really need to read the first before the movie comes out. The trailer for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children looks amazing, but before I go and see the film I need to have read the book, and possibly the whole series, first.
Wink. Poppy. Midnight by April Tucholke Genevieve
I will admit that my sole reason for adding this book to my to-buy list is largely due to the gorgeous cover. It has some mixed reviews but the blurb sounds interesting so I’m willing to give it a go.
The Archived by Victoria Schwab
I have brought every other book that V.E. Schwab has written, and while I do have both The Archived and The Unbound on my Kindle I don’t own them in paperback. It’s strange because I really enjoyed both books, though I read them a while back and can’t remember some of the finer details, so I’m surprised I don’t already have them in paperback.
Snow Like Ashes Series by Sara Raasch
So far I’ve only read Snow Like Ashes, although the second two books are on my to-read list I haven’t gotten around to them yet and not just because the third one has yet to be released. Still I really enjoyed the first books so I have high hopes for the rest of the series.
After Alice by Gregory Maguire
I haven’t read anything by Gregory Maguire before, although I know he wrote Wicked and I did see that at the West End when I was in New York with my sister. Still it’s an Alice in Wonderland inspired book and that alone is enough to convince me I need to buy it as soon as possible.
Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine
Ink and Bone is such a brilliant book, I brought it first for my Kindle and because I enjoyed it so much added it to my list of paperbacks I need to buy. Although the second book has been released I haven’t got around to reading it yet but honestly I think it will be just as good, if not better, than the first in the series.
The Trials of Apollo by Rick Riordan
I feel like this should actually be all of Rick Riordan’s book I have yet to buy, which isn’t just The Trials of Apollo but the Magnus Chase series and the Kane Chronicles as well. Granted I still need to read the Heroes of Olympus books but I know I’m going to love them the same as I did the Percy Jackson series and everything by Rick Riordan I have yet to buy and read.
Legend Series by Marie Lu
I started this series last year and got through all of Legend and half of the second book, Prodigy, before giving up. Not because the books were boring or something I didn’t enjoyed reading but because I was in the middle of a reading slump. I really enjoyed what I’ve already read of this series so I’m hoping when I go back and read it all the way through I’ll love the rest.
So what do you think? Did you take part in this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, if so let me know what books you’d buy if you had a fully loaded gift card.
