Top Ten Books that I would Buy Right Now if I Could…

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by  The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, bloggers get a topic which entails giving a list of ten things based on the topic.

books buyingThis is today’s topic: Ten Books You’d Buy Right This Second If Someone Handed You A Fully Loaded Gift Card

 

I haven’t bought any news books since April . This is mainly because I am trying to get through my ARCs from NetGalley and also read some of the books on my TBR before adding new ones. However, if someone handed me a fully loaded gift card, I would probably hug them then run down the street to my favorite bookshop. Here are some of the books that I would get with gift card.

 

 

 

The Woman in Cabin 10.jpg

The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

I requested this book on NetGalley but my request was denied. I still want to read it though so this would be my first purchase.

I haven’t been able to get the next two books from my usual street vendors and I have been searching for them since I read Anna and the French Kiss.  I really want to read them though I know buying new copies would be crazy expensive in my city.

Lola and the Boy Next Door and Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

book thiefThe Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Yeah I know…everyone is tired of hearing me talk about this book. It is my favorite book though but I only have the eBook. I wish to get my own copy and then frame it…no that would be weird…would it? I really want to get my own copy of the book though.

The rest are books that I have heard so much about and wish to read someday….

 

HPFinally, I have never read any fantasy novels but with my fully loaded gift card, I would get the Harry Porter series. Everyone seems to love this series but I have never read it and have never thought of buying it since I am not sure how I would feel about the genre. This is a risk that I would be willing to take with the fully loaded gift card!

Have you read any of the books on my list? Do you think they are good enough for me to spend my gift card on? Or should I just get other books instead? Let me know what you think. By the way, if you participated in today’s Top Ten Tuesday, share the link to your post and I will visit you and see how you plan on using your fully loaded gift card.

    I read all the HP series books. While people make lines to get new Apple products, I made lines to get the new JK Rowling book and devoured them in one sitting haha! 😛

      lol now I really need to get those books! I have always wondered why they have so many devoted readers. I guess its time to find out 🙂

    Definitely read Harry Potter!!!!!!!
    I’ve not read the Book Thief yet, but it’s been on my sight for so long. I really need to get it soon. But my local bookstore sell the paperback version a little more expensive than other paperbacks and it’s been putting me off. I guess I just need to swallow the difference to get it since everything I’ve heard about it tells me that it’s awesome.

      Oh The Book Thief is totally worthy it. I promise you, its such a great read. I hope that you will manage to get it and read it soon and then perhaps watch the movie if you are able to. I will definitely read Harry Porter, I have to find out why its that popular:-)

      • Jamie Wu
        August 4, 2016

        I shall do that 🙂 I’ve been putting off watching the movie until I read the book. I feel things are better experienced that way.

    Yay for Lola and Isla’s books! I’ve zero doubt they’ll be amazing reads (loved Anna’s story). Hope you can find them soon.

    • Diana
      August 4, 2016

      Thanks Rissi, I will double my efforts in looking for them now. Thanks for the recommendation 🙂

  17. No books bought since April? That’s amazing, you deserve a round of applause! No one can talk about the brilliance that is The Book Thief enough. I hope when you’re book buying ban ends, you allow yourself a little treat in the form of this one. Happy Tuesday!

    Ooooh great list!! I’ve read most of the books on your list and they’re awesome 😀 Stephanie Perkins’ all books are worth owning, especially Isla because it’s sooo adorable and I re-read it like 10 times already 😛 also, Daughters of Smoke and Bone trilogy has great covers and they make my shelves look pretty, you HAVE TO OWN THEM 😛

    • Diana
      August 4, 2016

      Your comment has made me more determined to get all of those books especially Isla(10 times?) and Daughters of Smoke and Bone. Thank you so much for the recommendation. Happy reading.

    So many great books here! I loved Lola and Anna, but Isla was disappointed. I actually DNFed it.

    Huntley Fitzpatrick is the best, though!
