top ten books i loved so much i had to own
posted by soe 1:50 am

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic from That Artsy Reader Girl asks us to share ten books we loved so much when we borrowed them that we had to get our own copy. I wasn’t sure I’d get to ten, but it wasn’t as hard as I’d expected:

  1. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Maryanne Shaffer and Annie Barrows
  2. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
  3. The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill
  4. The Book Thief by Marcus Zuzak
  5. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
  6. A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle
  7. When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead
  8. A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle
  9. Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeild
  10. Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli

How about you? Do you buy books that you’ve borrowed if you love them? Or are you an avowed non-re-reader?

I loved reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society!

I very rarely get physical books that I’ve already read in another format, just because I don’t have the space! The Book Thief and Ballet Shoes are two of my favourite books and I own both in physical copy but that was the copy I originally read them in.

A good list. I’ve only read The Night Circus. I read it years and years ago on holiday. I can’t believe how popular it is now!

Once I’ve read a book I don’t tend to buy it in another format as I’m running out of space so use the library and ebooks to save space!

Have a great week!
