Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This feature has a different (usually) book related topic each week, and the goal is to compose a list of ten things that correspond to the topic!
This week is a freebie week. Since I missed last week due to craziness in my adulting life, I’ve decided to make it up this week. Therefore…
This week’s theme is: Ten Books That I Would Buy If I Had Unlimited Money
1. Slytherin Themed Harry Potter Series – Honestly, do I even need to justify this? I challenge you to point me to an HP fan that isn’t proud of their house and wanting to show it off any chance that they can.
2. Jessica Darling Series – I’ve talked about my love for this series before. This was one of the first series that I read that made me fall madly in love with YA. Big thanks to my sister for reading these and then making me read these. I’m actually embarrassed to admit that I don’t have my own copy of this series, despite my love.
3. The Complete Berenstain Bear Series – Alright, I definitely need unlimited money for this because according to a book list on Wikipedia (the most accurate place for information, of course), there are almost 400 published BB books! HOLY CRAP. That is a lot of books. Thank goodness I have a good chunk already in my possession from childhood.
4 and 5. The Ender Quintet and Shadow Saga – This one comes with a caveat. There is so much damn debate about how you should read these books, what order makes sense. So, since I’ve got endless money, I am going to pay Orson Scott Card whatever monetary sum he wants to tell me the legitimate order in which they should be read.
6. And I Darken by Kiersten White – This one has been all over my radar. Though I’m slightly nervous because I didn’t enjoy Paranormalcy that much, I can’t overlook the rave reviews and praise that this has been getting.
7. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare – It has been a few years since I read The Mortal Instruments series, but I just finished The Infernal Devices and I miss this world so much! Cassandra Clare is a Goddess, so I need (not even a want, a serious need) to get my hands on this as soon as possible.
8. P.S. I Like You by Kasie West – The author of this says it all. I’ve adored everything I’ve read by Kasie West, and this will surely be no exception. West is one of my auto-buy authors, so I’m not sure why I don’t have this yet.
9. 738 Days by Stacey Kade – I’m just so beyond intrigued with this one. I’m one of those people who get sucked into missing children cases when they’re on the news, so I’m fully anticipating devouring this once I start it.
10. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys – Love historical fiction, and loved Salt to the Sea more than I can even explain, more than the review can even explain. I can’t wait to read more by Sepetys.
Writing this got me thinking, if you could only read one series for the rest of your life, what would it be? You can’t say Harry Potter, that’s cheating!
