Top Ten Tuesdays (#2): Top Ten Books I’d Buy Right This Second if Someone Handed Me a Fully Loaded Gift Card!


I’ve decided to participate in Top Ten Tuesday by The Broke and the Bookish again, because I just had so much fun with last week’s challenge! And I have a feeling that I’ll have just as much fun with this week’s question!

Ten books you’d buy right this second if someone handed you a fully loaded gift card!

This is dangerous haha, because looking at this books may just make me buy them right now and not wait for this magical fully loaded gift card!

51qM6b02EULLeigh Bardugo’s Six of Crows

This book has been on my wishlist ever since I first heard about it! I love fantasy, and this sounds just like my kind of fantasy story. The hardcover version is also incredibly beautiful. The edges are sprayed black, and there are some pages on the interior which are completely black. I know that this may not count as “incredibly beautiful” to most people, but I’m a sucker for black.

51OkHxff2+LElise Kova’s Air Awakens

This book has also been on my wishlist for some time. The cover looks amazing (as do the covers of all of the other books in the series)! And the plot sounds great! The only reason it’s not yet sitting on my shelf is because it’s very expensive to buy this book in hardcover AND paperback in Canada.


51m2XBpQ0YL._SX328_BO1,204,203,200_Roshani Chokshi’s The Star-Touched Queen

This has been one of the most-anticipated and well-loved books for 2016, but I just haven’t been able to afford buying it just yet. I may have to get it used, but it’s definitely a book that I want sitting on my shelf (and that I want to read, obviously). The plot seems different and fresh!

51sEJKiDzPL._SX320_BO1,204,203,200_Victoria Schwab’s This Savage Song

Another of 2016’s best-loved books! I keep hearing about this book, and I see it everywhere! The story sounds unique, and I know that I love Schwab’s writing, so I really look forward to getting my hands on this book one of these days! I should have pre-ordered it, because now it costs more…sigh.

51JIrNUzeOL._SX328_BO1,204,203,200_Erika Johansen’s The Queen of the Tearling

This story sounds epically amazing and is very popular. The only issue is that the hardcover version (my favourite version), is very expensive in Canada (though I don’t know about anywhere else). This epic-ness will make it onto my bookshelf someday!

61wyY+eg0oL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_Holly Black’s The Darkest Part of the Forest

This sounds like an amazing, dark fairytale…and I love it! I’ve been a fan of Holly Black ever since I picked up Tithe some years ago. That book and the rest of the series made me fall in love with faeries as well as the faerie courts! I will have to buy and read this book sometime soon.

51wKzTk7ZOL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_Jessica Khoury’s The Forbidden Wish

A re-telling of the classic Aladdin story but with a twist. I really like the idea behind this story, and judging from what I’ve heard, Khoury has executed it very well! The cover is also just beautiful! I need this book in my life, and soon!


51Td8kF1ntLMaggie Stiefvater’s The Raven Boys

I already have this as an e-book, but I really want to collect the whole Raven Boys series in hardcover, or paperback at least! I’ve been trying to buy more hardcovers though, because some of my older paperbacks are starting to fall apart! This series sounds amazing and I need to get to it ASAP!

51fSnKmlq6L._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_Nicola Yoon’s Everything, Everything

Though I haven’t been into contemporary fiction much lately, I know that I would love this book. I’ve heard nothing but praises, and I’ve heard that they’ll be turning it into a movie soon! I love that the characters seems diverse (from what I’ve seen and heard), and I think that I will read this book soon. The cover is also incredibly lovely!

51jxJJ7cmZLVictoria Schwab’s A Gathering of Shadows

Even though I haven’t read the first book in the series (A Darker Shade of Magic), I will be reading it this month for the #ReadThemAllThon readathon and I know that I’ll love it. The book covers in this series are also lovely and quite unique in their style. I own the first book and it definitely makes my bookshelf look lovelier!


Do you guys have any books like these in your lives or libraries? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. Great list, Flavia!! I REALLY want to read Everything, Everything!! It sounds so beautiful & I have heard so much about it *sighs* And the cover!! *heart eyes*

  2. Great list! I’ve either read or own pretty much all of these! I thought Six of Crows, The Forbidden Wish, The Raven Boys, and A Darker Shade of Magic were all amazing and were 4-5 star reads for me! I also really wanted a copy of The Darkest Part of the Forest but borrowed it from the library instead and it wasn’t really for me! 🙂

    1. Thank you! And oh that’s great to hear (about the first 4)! And hmmm had you read any Holly Black before? Was it too dark? Or was it the plotline that you didn’t like? 🙂

      1. I read part of The Coldest Girl in Coldtown and kind of put it down indefinitely. I didn’t think this one was too dark but it kind of felt like there could have been more, if that makes sense, with the world building and magical elements. I hope you have better luck with it than I did though and enjoy it! 🙂
