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
Beauty-of-Darkness

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. 🙂

 

Unravel-Me2. & 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

Forever-SongI 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?

 

Star-Touched-Queen5. 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

The-ListI 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.

 

Before-We-Were-Strangers7. 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

Made-You-UpAnother 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!

 

It-Ends-with-Us9. 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

Bollywood-AffairI 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!

 

What books would you buy if you had the chance? I want to know!

    Oh yesss you definitely need Made You Up! IT IS MOST GLORIOUS AND DIVINE. *flails* And I have the Star Touched Queen on reserve at my library and I’m totally excited. I was too nervous to buy it because I heard it had insta-love??? But like if the writing/world is totally beautiful then I’m sure I won’t mind. But I am a wimp haha.😂
    Omg but someone needs to send us a fairy god-book-mother to grant all our bookish needs.

    Made You Up is definitely one to have in your life! Same with ALL of the Shatter Me series- Ignite Me is my favorite!! And definitely get TBOD! It is huge though, beware hahah. And I liked (but didn’t loooooove) The Star Touched Queen, but either way, it’s totally worth having on your shelves for pretty cover factor alone 😉

    Beauty of Darkness and Made You Up would definitely be on my list too! I can’t wait to see where Mary E. Pearson takes this series. Also, I love that you “guess” you love your husband more, that’s funny.
    I have the whole Shatter Me series and have yet to even read the first book. That’s sad right?
    Great list!

    Nice list! I actually DNF’d Shatter Me, but it’s one of those series you either love or hate it seems. I have the first book in that series by Julie Kawaga, but still haven’t read it. i even have an e-copy and paperback. The Beauty of Darkness looks good!

    I would probably pre-order the next Kelley Armstrong novel and buy her books that I don’t own yet. And there are some sci-fi books and cozy mysteries on my to-read list that I would like to grab too.
