Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books I’d Buy Right Now If I Had A Fully Loaded Gift Card!

Top Ten Tuesday(9)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.

This week’s theme is pretty self explanatory, what books would I buy with an unlimited amount of free money? Well normally I could go insane but I think at this point it may be tricky since I recently bought a ton of books that I really wanted… I’ll have to do some thinking for this one!

10.) The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker

The Witch Hunter (The Witch Hunter, #1)

Okay so I have heard a lot of mixed reviews about this book but I’m still really interested in it because of the blurb. So if I’m being GIVEN money then I’d definitely go buy this just to check it out and see if it’s actually any good or not.

9.) The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #1)

Just because the library’s copy is almost always checked out and I want my own copy. That is all.

8.) I Hate Fairyland Vol. 1 by Skottie Young & Jean-Francois Beaulieu

I Hate Fairyland, Vol. 1: Madly Ever After

This was recommended to me by Ashley at Dreaming Through Literature and I trust her graphic novel recs! My library doesn’t have any copies so I’ll just get my own.

7.) Demon Road by Derek Landy

Demon Road (Demon Road, #1)

Recommended to me by Michelle at Book Adventures and it apparently doesn’t have a format for Kindle that I can buy on Amazon sooooo I’ll use my free money to buy a copy!

6.) The Passion of Dolssa by Julie Berry

The Passion of Dolssa

Nothing but great reviews and therefore….I want to own it, even though I’m not a big fan of covers with only people on it.

5.) These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman

These Broken Stars (Starbound, #1)

I read and loved Kaufman’s (along with Kristoff) “Illuminae” and I have read and loved two of Kristoff’s books as well so it’s only right I read “These Broken Stars”! Plus the cover is very pretty!

4.) The May Queen Murders by Sarah Jude

The May Queen Murders

First of all it’s supposedly dark and creepy and second of all I am obsessed with how gorgeous the cover is, I’d love to add this one to my shelves!

3.) Never, Never (Part One) by Colleen Hoover & Tarryn Fisher

Never Never (Never Never, #1)

I really want to check out Colleen Hoover since everyone seems to really love her books and this one seems to not only be a general favorite but seems like something I might like.

2.) Titans by Victoria Scott


Well it’s certainly no secret that I am a really big horse-lover so I’ll give any horse-based YA book a try especially one that has mechanical horses!

1.) Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Tiger Lily

It’s also no secret how much I love Peter Pan and I will get my hands on every retelling possible. This one is supposed to be VERY good and I absolutely can’t wait to get my own copy!

    So I didn’t know about Name of the Wind or it’s author (never going to pretend I can spell that name without looking at it). I went to a Brandon Sanderson signing where he was also in attendance. I bought the book because, hey! author! He signed it “I hope you like it.” It’s hilarious because he’s like THE name in the business right now, and here he is hoping some punk who didn’t know what was going on would like his book. That really spoke to me. That good an author with that much humility? I loved his books and can’t wait for the last. Based on your comments above, I’m assuming you’ve read it. If you haven’t. Buy it, buy it now. It’s wonderful.
    I’ve been hearing more an more about “These Broken Stars.” I think I’ll add it to my list of books I mean to read after I read this mountain of books I have to read. The more I hear about it, the more people rave about it, the more likely I am to read it.
    As for other books, can you blame a guy? I’d like to think my book, The Journals of Bob Drifter, is pretty darn good. And even better, it’s on Audible, so you don’t have to pay for it if you have an account and a credit.
    In terms of books I mean to read. Well, let me look at this GIANT stack of books I have:
    Magic-Scars and Magic-Borne by C.L. Schneider, who’s VERY good.
    The Problem of Pain by C.S. Lewis
    A few Naruto Mangas because reader needs a bit of Manga.
    Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
    I’m looking forward to some new Sanderson and The Blood Mirror by Weeks.
    And that’s it.

      I have not read The Name of The Wind yet but I’m definitely planning on it, thanks for sharing that little story I think that’s really awesome you got to meet Patrick Rothfuss like that! Good luck with your TBR pile and thanks for sharing! πŸ™‚

    Ohh great picks for this week Heather. The Name of the Wind has been on my to-read list for a while now so I would definitely buy that one if someone handed me a fully loaded gift card! The thing is I think the size of the book is intimidating me a little because it’s just so long!
    Also I really love These Broken Stars. It’s a book I picked up because of the cover and honestly I’m so glad I did because I thought it was amazing! I think if you liked Illuminae then you’ll like These Broken Stars as well! πŸ˜€

      Thanks Beth!
      I’m definitely intimidated by the size of The Name of the Wind and I think that’s part of why I haven’t read it yet! I also feel like it would take me a while to finish so owning a copy takes off the pressure to hurry.
      I’m glad to hear you loved These Broken Stars! I was kind of leery about it since it seems too romance-y for me but I did love Illuminae so I’m curious to see what I think of this one! πŸ™‚

    ❀ ! I just recently checked out These Broken Stars and Tiger Lily from the Library, but a reading slump hit and I had to return them before getting the chance to read them. They've been on my to-read forever! I guess, like you, I'll have to get my own copy so I can read them at my leisure!

      I know how that is! I love getting to read books for free but I also like to pick when I’m going to read them and I hate feeling rushed! I hope we both get a chance to read both of these eventually here, haha, they seem like awesome books! πŸ™‚

    So many of these are on my TBR! Even though I have an eBook version I want a physical copy The May Queen Murders so bad just because of how beautiful the cover is. I own These Broken Stars and Demon Road but I haven’t read them yet πŸ™ˆ

      Yes! The cover for The May Queen Murders is so gorgeous and that’s probably part of why I want a copy so badly…..
      I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on These Broken Stars and Demon Road when you eventually read them! πŸ™‚
