Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010 but was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl come January 2018. It was made through the love of lists, books and to bring readers together.
Hello, I’ve been away from blogging these past few days because last weekend was a bank holiday weekend where I am and both my parents were off from work those days so they were quite busy to say the least 😛 Anyway, I can think of quite a few books I wish I could own that I’ve read, not only favourites but books that really inspired me and books I felt had a special place in my heart for different reasons. There are even more books I wish I could own that I haven’t yet read but but that’s a topic for another time and I’m sure there are many others who could say that too! 😉 Books on I want to own are as follows!
The Books of Pellinor series by Alison Croggon
Even though I haven’t read the whole series yet I still want to own these books because they have to be one of the most immersive and unique fantasy series I have come across. The characters also feel real, not overly badass but strong in their own right which I think makes more entertaining reading than anything!
Castings trilogy by Pamela Freeman
I will admit I didn’t really connect with the first book in this series in the beginning, but I find this is a series I enjoy more after a period of time following finishing the book. The second book was amazing in itself and I began to truly appreciate the beauty of this author’s writing. I will probably buy these books one day to be honest.
The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna
Another book I didn’t love at first but following some time after finishing I found this book was a real gem that should be more well known. I’ll also mention this book also gave many inspirations into my own imaginings!
Spiritwalker trilogy by Kate Elliott
The first book in this trilogy was truly a jewel among books and I cannot believe I haven’t read the next two books yet! I just know I’ll like the rest of this series though because the themes explored here are not only vastly interesting but they also inspired my own fantasies too. Hmm booklust…
Cages by Dave McKean
I think it’s becoming obvious now that all the books I want to add to my library are books with interesting themes or books that truly stood out from the crowd because I don’t just buy any book. On thinking of this one I think of philosophy and beautiful graphics, so yeah, I’d like this at home with me one day 🙂
Genesis by Bernard Beckett
For many years I wanted to buy a copy of this book and how I wish this author would write more books like this! Interesting philosophy and a stunning twist at the end make this an easy choice for books I’d like to own forever.
Mortal Chaos trilogy by Matt Dickinson
Before I cam across this book I’ll admit I never knew about the chaos theory but it’s something that stares us all in the face and is fascinating once you think about it. The way the author handled everything here was just so real and definitely had me thinking! I want more!
George series by Lucy & Stephen Hawking
To this day I still cannot believe I haven’t read all these books but the first four I have read were really beyond awesome and vastly informative. A much recommended series for those who like science and a fun interesting story, these books will certainly have a special place in my library.
Beasts Made of Night by Tochi Onyebuchi
While this wasn’t a perfect book, it was certainly a very beautiful one that has stayed with me all the time since I read it. I think one day I will buy this book and the second one but as my parents and support workers say I need to remember I don’t have an endless supply of money! 😛
A Thousand Nights by E.K. Johnston
For a while now I have wanted to buy both this book and its companion for my personal library because this is the book that totally enchanted me and had me hooked so even to this day I haven’t forgotten just how awesome it was. A highly recommended series that as soon as I can I will acquire 😉
