Top Ten Tuesday | That Time We Bought ALL THE BOOKS
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday left me with one reaction: oy, with the poodles already! Does this exactly tie into today's topic? No. But it’s from one of my favorite TV shows (Gilmore Girls) and this bookish prompt is one dangerous examination for a book nerd. Can we say #Goals.

|Ten Books You'd Buy Right This Second If Someone Handed You A Fully Loaded Gift Card
The truth is, my family purchases a lot of books. More than perhaps is practical, but we have never been extravagant vacationers nor do we travel period. For us, this is okay. Instead we indulge in books. As I’ve become a book blogger and discovered this world, I’ve been all the more anxious to support this pursuit because I’ve realized how important it is to support the authors who’s work we admire or the authors we have on our “auto buy” lists.
That said, today’s query is such a dilemma for us, am I right? If we were gifted a fully loaded gift card, what books would we buy? Well, here are
ten ahem, I mean
fifteen (clearly my overactive book nerd imagination was a bit greedy this
week; I’m working on getting that in check) books I’d buy with this hypothetical
1. The Wrath and the Dawn Duology by Renee Ahdieh | I’ve heard good things about this series (especially book one), and I’m curious. Also, would it be wrong of me to buy both the paperback and hardcover editions? Amazon | Goodreads
2. The ARC Classics Line | I’m totally going to blame my friend and fellow INSPYs Advisory Board member, Lydia for this one landing on my list. She posted THE most gorgeous Instagram photos of this line of reprints (from various classic literature authors like Austen and Dickens). I don’t even read classics and I have book nerd envy.
3. The Lady and the Lionheart by Joanne Bischof | Okay, I realize adding this title is a moot point since I actually ordered my paperback copy last night. That said, I’ll take any and every opportunity I can snag to shout from the rooftops this novel’s depth and beauty. PS: this one officially released today. Go and buy a copy. Amazon | Goodreads
4. Traitor Angels by Anne Blankman | Anne’s novels always sound like stories with much depth and sometimes those are needed. Amazon | Goodreads
5. Until the Dawn by Elizabeth Camden | Usually I buy all of Elizabeth’s novels as they release (or I snag a spot on a review tour), but this one slipped through the cracks. Despite the fact that I’m woefully behind on my reading of Camden’s recent releases, I’ve zero doubt this novel is a beauty. Amazon | Goodreads
6. Gallagher Girls 10th Anniversary Editions by Ally Carter | I already own most of this series in its original paperback editions so re-purchasing them in these new editions wouldn’t be the most prudent way to spend money. But if I was able to, I'd snag these for this simple reason: adorable! Amazon | Goodreads
7. Doon Series by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon | This would be a “luxury” purchase (but then why wouldn’t you opt for some of those when gifted a fully loaded gift card?) since I do own all but the newest ‘Doon’ novel in their finished copies. But two I own in paperback, and one in hardcover. My OCD self is whispering the following, “Own the same format!” Amazon | Goodreads
8. A Daring Sacrifice by Jody Hedlund | Because I recently realized I don’t have a finished copy of this one. Amazon | Goodreads
9. The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig | A Hawaiian setting mixed in with time travel? I’m in. Amazon | Goodreads
10. Reign of Shadows by Sophie Jordan | I’ve not read any of Sophie’s novels (who recommends them!?), but I was drawn to this one because of its cover art. It looks intricate, and the story also sounds like a must read. Amazon | Goodreads
11. The Mirror King by Jodi Meadows | I read The Orphan Queen earlier this year and quite enjoyed it. Needless to say, reading its sequel should be on my ASAP TBR. Amazon | Goodreads
12. Love Comes Softly Series (Reprints) by Janette Oke | Since I have such fond memories of this series, I wouldn’t mind owning the reprint edition of these. Right now I own the typical 80s style editions and they sure are worse for their wear. Amazon | Goodreads
14. The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye | This HarperTeen novel sounds fascinating to say the least. Much to my shame, until I ran across it again on Amazon, I’d forgotten how curious I was about its release. Amazon | Goodreads
15. Almost Like Being in Love by Beth K. Vogt | Because all of Beth’s novels are pure sunshine. Amazon | Goodreads
