Top Ten Books I'd Buy Right This Second if Someone Handed Me a Fully Loaded Gift Card

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted at The Broke and the Bookish and you can find a full list of topics here. This week's top ten is basically every book lovers dream scenario - so you can bet that there are a LOT of books that could have made it onto this list!

The Complete Novels of Jane Austen
OK, so I already have copies of all Austen's books. I actually have three copies of Pride and Prejudice and Emma and two of all the others. But I want this box set so bad. The books are beautiful and I have been in love ever since I first saw it.

The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1)
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
I was waiting for the series to be complete before I read it and it now is. So all I am waiting on now is this fully loaded gift card! This series is definitely a priority for me, I have heard amazing things and I have enjoyed Maggie Stiefvater's books in the past. 

Rebel Belle (Rebel Belle, #1)
Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins:
Another one I was waiting to be complete. These look like fun, kick ass reads and I although I've heard the second two books aren't as good as the first, I am still keen to read it. 

Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone Illustrated Edition Deluxe
Again, I do already have copies of Harry Potter (including the illustrated edition) but this is the deluxe edition. Which is clearly different. And therefore necessary. (This also goes for the Deluxe edition of Chamber of Secrets by the way).

Grimm's Complete Fairy Tales
I love fairy tales, I especially love beautiful collections of fairy tales. But really this could count for all of the Leatherbound Classics Collection. Because if I could I would buy every single one of them.

You can also find us on Goodreads (Ann and Clare) to keep up with what we are reading

  4. That Austen set looks quite attractive, even though I haven't read Austen (I started Sense and sensibility once) I think it would be nice to have a set of her books on the shelf. Classics and all. :)

  7. I read Rebel Belle a year or so back but never got around to reading the sequels! The ilustrated version of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is beautiful! For some reason I'm really hesitant to read The Raven Cycle. I guess I just don't want to be disappointed? Here is my list!
