Top Ten Tuesday : Books I'd Buy Right Away....If I Had A Fully Loaded Gift Card.


Oh, all the books I would buy...if only I had the money. It's a dream we all have, I think. My grammy once said one of the greatest gifts she could give me for Christmas was a gift card for books. If you can afford it, there really isn't a solid reason why you shouldn't spend a limitless amount on your digital and physical shelves. There isn't such a thing of 'not having a book to buy'.

I'm splitting this up in two parts! Five books (and/or sets) I'd buy for my physical bookshelf and five books I'd nab for my e-reader!

Books for my E-Reader 

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins


The Graces (#1) by Laure Eve

The Neverending Story by Michael Ende

Why Not Me? By Mindy Kaling

Boy Series by Meg Cabot


Books for my Shelves

Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman

Uprooted by Naomi Novik

 Quilt Trilogy by Ann Rinaldi

Lang Leav's Lullabies

White Oleander by Janet Finch


My reasons vary for each selection. Like I would adore having the Quilt Trilogy on my Kindle. Alas, not available. So I'd settle with a physical copy for nostalgia sake. Vengeance Road and Uprooted are my current favorite new reads that I've picked up in the past year. They would fit quite nicely on my bookshelves. And for some reason I have a serious lack of Meg Cabot on my Kindle but plenty of her on my shelves. Such imbalance! Oh, and White Oleander has been a secret love of mine for quite some time and yet...I don't have a copy in any form!

That's all for this week's round of Top Ten Tuesday. Any suggestions? Do you have any books you are craving to splurge on but only in one form? Any digital copies you're desperate to add to your physical shelves, any throwback nostalgia physical books you wouldn't mind on your e-reader? 

Have a read-tastic week!

  1. Yes, I was terribly curious why you'd want some books as e-books and some as real books. Thanks for the explanation.

    Here's my Top Ten!

  2. Ooh, the cover for The Graces is beautiful! I've also wanted to read Why Not Me? but I want to hear it on audiobook. I've wanted to read Uprooted for a long time but every time I come across an edition, it is so expensive!

    Jess @ POB!

    1. It really is! Normally I'd stray from the premise just a tad but the cover is so elegant. lol. It looks promising! I agree, Why Not Me? would probably be best in audio format. Mindy Kaling's voice cannot be denied. Especially when she's reading her own words. lol. Uprooted is worth the splurge! And, if you're into audiobooks - the audio is amazing. Thank you for stopping by!!! :)

  5. Your list is so good! I bought THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN two weeks back, planning to read it before the movie comes out. The neverending story and the quilt trilogy sounds good, adding them to my TBR now ;)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, Jessica :)
    Happy Reading!

  7. Great list! When I really enjoy e-books, I want physical copies on my shelves too, to have and to hold :)) It would probably save more space to just stick to e-books and save shelf space for favorites.

    Thank you for stopping by Haphazard Bookshelves :)
