While trying to decide what blogposts to do this week, I took look at this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic. They often have very interesting topics, but most of the time, I can’t even think of 5 books to go with the topic. This week, it was different.
As someone with a never-ending bookish wishlist, and with the topic being ‘Ten Books You’d Buy Right This Second If Someone Handed You A Fully Loaded Gift Card’ the question wasn’t if I could find enough books to go with the topic, but if I would be able to narrow it down! Luckily, I was able to. Kind of. And these are the books I picked:
Okay, okay, I know there are technically 11 book here, but it just looks better with 11. It’s a nice kind of pyramid shape this way.
Anyway, as you can see there are quite a few amazing books on my wishlist. I already own Pride and Prejudice & Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland but the Classics Reimagined editions are just so so beautiful! These would definitely be at the top of my wishlist. Besides that, I’ve heard amazing things about Radio Silence and Under Rose-Tainted Skies through the #SundayYA chat on Twitter, which made me super excited to pick these up! I’m still a bit iffy about Under Rose-Tainted Skies though, but only because the topic is a bit close-to-home. I’d be equally excited about picking up the rest of the books on this list! I mean, look at how gorgeous The Invention of Hugo Cabret is! And I loved A Darker Shade of Magic, so I’m sure I’d love it’s sequel: A Gathering of Shadows. And the five other books? Well, besides all having amazing covers, all of the synopses sound amazing and I’ve heard great things about them. I’m just going to dream about being able to afford all of these books now, sigh.
So, what books would you pick up if someone gave you a gift card?
