Top Ten Tuesday: Books I'd Buy Right This Second

This week's Top Ten Tuesday is such a fun topic. It's "Books I'd Buy Right This Second with a Fully Loaded Gift Card."  Now that's is what I'm talkin' about! 


1.  North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell - I have been meaning to read this classic for AGES.  

2.  The Summer Queen by Elizabeth Chadwick - I love historical fiction and from what I hear Elizabeth Chadwick is fantastic. I would love to start this series about Eleanor of Aquitaine.

3.  The One That Got Away by Leigh Himes  - This is a local author; in fact, the setting of the book is based on the town I am currently living in. How cool is that?  When I can, I love to support local authors.

4.  Hearts, Fingers, and Other Things to Cross by Katie Finn - I love this fun series and am dying to find out how it all ends.

5.  All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven - I hear this book is heart-wrenching. I definitely want to read it before it is made into a movie. 

6.  Between Shades by Gray by Ruta Sepetys - I loved the last two books that I read by her, so I definitely want to read this one. Her books are so powerful!

7.  After I Do by Taylor Jenkins Reid - I am a huge fan of Reid's novels and I heard this one is fantastic!

8.  An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir - This is one of those YA books that I never got around to reading despite the fact that I have read some awesome reviews for it.  

9.  Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass #4) by Sarah J. Maas  - I need to get caught up with this series. I don't know what I am waiting for, because I love Sarah J. Maas.

10.  Cress (The Lunar Chronicles #3) by Marissa Meyer - This series is a new-to-me series this year and I look forward to reading this next one which is based on Rapunzel.  

So, what books would you buy if you had a loaded gift card to your favorite bookstore? Let me know in the comments below! This meme is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.


  1. I loved North and South, Cress and Between Shades of Grey. I want to read All the Bright Places too. My sister and one of my coworkers both highly recommended it to me. I just haven't had the chance yet. I hope you get to read these soon!

  2. Great list! I need to read All the Bright Places and An Ember in the Ashes, too. I loved Cress! I hope you get to read it soon. Here's my TTT

  3. Oh yes, I'd absolutely by Queen of Shadows too Christina! I've been holding off on that one, waiting for the next book so I could binge read. I love Sarah so much, but she can be brutal, so I think binge reading might be the way to go for me:)

  4. I've had All The Bright Places, for a while now, and I STILL haven't read it! That needs to change and soon! Good luck! :D My Top Ten Tuesday!

  5. Ah Between Shades of Grey is incredible! Hope you get it soon!

  6. OMG. North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell is such a lovely book. Dare I say, it's better than Pride & Prejudice? Yes, yes, Indeed. Margaret was such a kickass character - in an Elizabeth Bennett kind of way.

  7. I can't wait to read Cress myself! I never got around to read that book, despite loving the first two. Plus, I am excited since it's a retelling of Rapunzel, and I already LOVE Thorne!

    Here's my list

  8. I really must read North & South one of these days! My TTT


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
