Top Ten Books I’d Buy if Someone Gave Me a Loaded Gift Card
Ah, a topic near and dear to our hearts. If money were no object, what books would we pick up FIRST!
(Links go to Goodreads)
1. The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E. Pearson
There is a very good chance that I’ll head off to Amazon to purchase this book as soon as I’m done writing this post. The only thing that stopped me from pre-ordering was the fact that I was hoping to attend Pearson’s author event at Anderson’s bookshop, and I would be buying the book there. But, unfortunately, the event takes place on my husband’s 40th birthday, and … well … as much as I love Mary E. Pearson, I guess I love my husband more. 🙂
2. & 3. Unravel Me and Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi
Later this month, I’m going to do a readalong of this series with Laura from 125 Pages. I own the first book (I think I won it, if I remember correctly), but I need to pick up the other two!
If anyone wants to join us for the readalong, let me know!
4. The Forever Song by Julie Kagawa
I can’t believe I never finished reading this series. I LOVED the first two books! This non-finishing of series is a serious sickness, people. Maybe if I owned the final book I’d actually pick it up?
5. The Star Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi
This is one that I’ve heard so many amazing things about and I really want to read it. Definitely on my must-read-soon list!
6. The List by Kate L. Mary
I absolutely adored Kate L. Mary’s zombie series (Broken World), and I’ve been meaning to check out her New Adult fare for a long time, but I haven’t managed it yet.
7. Before We Were Strangers by Renee Carlino
I’m pretty sure it was Grace over at Rebel Mommy Book Blog who convinced me with her review that I needed this book in my life.
8. Made You Up by Francesca Zappia
Another one that people have raved about so much that I am absolutely certain I will love it. This book sounds perfect for me – in all its strangeness!
9. It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover
This is yet another author event that I’m desperate to go to but that falls at an inopportune time (the day before my husband’s birthday). We’re all booked up!
10. A Bollywood Affair by Sonali Dev
I heard this author speak at RT last year on a diversity panel, and I’ve been strangely drawn to this book ever since, even though it’s out of my “normal” genres. I had the chance to see her again at my local library (it’s rare that we get authors I’m interested in there), but I missed out – I keep waiting for another opportunity. I need to pick up this book!
