Top Ten Tuesday #31: Books I'd Buy If Someone Gave Me a Gift Card

It's been a while since I did Top Ten Tuesday. I just got sick of talking about the same books - since I was mostly pulling lists from my "Read" shelf on Goodreads. Today's topic let me look at my "To Be Read" shelf, so this was fun.

I don't buy a lot of books, so if someone gave me a pre-loaded gift card, I'd pick books I think I'd love, would want to read again and again, and would likely want to share with others (i.e. my sister or my mom). Here's my list!


Adult 


After I Do by Taylor Jenkins Reid


Happiness for Beginners by Katherine Center


The Little Women Letters by Gabrielle Donnelly


The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah


The Versions of Us by Laura Barnett

Young Adult


Rules for 50/50 Chances by Kate McGovern


The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith


We Are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson

Pre-Orders


Heartless by Marissa Meyer


Bad Blood (The Naturals #4) by Jennifer Lynn Barnes


What would you buy if someone gave you a gift card?

  1. The Nightingale and After I Do are both so amazing! The Statistical Probability is super cute and quick. Rules for 50/50 Chances and We Are the Ants are two I would love to get to. Great list!

    1. I probably heard about The Little Women Letters from your blog. :)

      Wow, yes, how have you not heard of Heartless! I am beyond excited for it. There were some ARCs at BEA, but I didn't get a ticket in time. I should go pre-order it now.

    1. I finally gave in and pre-ordered it yesterday. I don't want to have to wait for a library copy. :)

  5. I don't buy books very often, either! The last time I went to a huge bookstore (Powell's in Portland, OR), I bought two books I already know and love - The Happiness Project (I wanted my own copy to highlight and write in as I please) and A Homemade Life by Molly Wizenberg. This is also super nerdy, but I like owning multiple editions of my favorite books, so I'd probably try to get an edition of Harry Potter that I don't already own. Maybe even one in a different language, because the cover art is so fun and very different from the US covers.

    1. I've bought a couple non-fiction books that I've already read on my Kindle. It does make it easier to go back and find stuff if you can mark up a physical copy.

      Many people collect foreign editions. It is neat to see all the different cover art, and even title changes.

  6. I really want to read The Nightingale sometime soon! My TTT
