Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by the Broke and the Bookish). This week’s topic is actually pretty similar to one from December about what books we would want to receive for the holidays. I want to buy books when I’ve read them and loved them, so a lot of those wouldn’t change. I still want to own most of those picks and still don’t own any of them. And I still haven’t read Ferragost, which is honestly a long-running joke at this point. I should honestly dedicate a sidebar widget to all the times I’ve mentioned not reading Ferragost.
Anyways, I did come up with a few other titles I would like to buy given an unlimited gift card. On we go!
Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke: Gorgeous cover, gorgeously creepy story.
The Daughter of Smoke & Bone series by Laini Taylor: I haven’t finished this series, but it’s already one of my favorites.
The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury: I had this recommended to me a while ago. Maybe buying it would actually encourage me to read it.
The Coralie Bickford-Smith cloth bound series: These are unreal. I want a bookshelf full of them. Several bookshelves, actually.
Kulti by Mariana Zapata: I’ve heard good things about this, plus I would love to read more Hispanic authors. And my library doesn’t have this, so buying a copy is looking like a good idea.
Uprooted by Naomi Novik: I waited for the audiobook from my library for AGES (well over a month, maybe two), only to return it immediately because I found the narration distracting. So I’m back to waiting, this time for the ebook. I should just buy it and end this misery.
Angela Carter’s Book of Fairy Tales by Angela Carter: Have you seen this cover? It slays me. I loved The Bloody Chamber, so I’m all about bringing more Angela Carter into my life. I hope this collection (she just edited it, didn’t write it), is as creepy as her own work.
The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black: I finished this audiobook and the setting was so up my alley. I’ll definitely want to do a reread soon, and I’m eager to see how it reads without a narrator.
Thanks for stopping by!
