Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is ‘ten books you’d buy right this second if you had a fully loaded giftcard’ and this may be the easiest post I’ve ever written.


Seriously. All I needed to do was crack open my Amazon wishlist/saved for later list and it just wrote itself.


Just squeaking under the wire with this, so onwards to the list!

Carry On

1) Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
I loved Fangirl and this one has been on my wishlist for an obscenely long period of time. Essentially I get easily distracted by bookshops when I do go in to buy books and like a magpie go for the newest shiniest book leaving the one I went in to get on a shelf somewhere.



Cress (The Lunar Chronicles, #3)

2) Cress & Winter by Marissa Meyer
OK, this is a two-fer as I very, very , very much would like to finish reading this series and again, they’ve both been on my Amazon wishlist for a while.




League of Dragons (Temeraire, #9)

3) League of Dragons by Naomi Novik
The Temeraire series is fabulous and I can’t describe how much I want to read book 9.




Mirror Sight

4) Mirror Sight by Kristen Britain
The Green Rider series is similar to A Song of Ice and Fire in that each book in the series takes a billion years to come out (but is totally worth it). Because there’s such a gap between books it always takes forever for me to realise the next one’s come out.



Everybody Writes: Your Go-To Guide to Creating Ridiculously Good Content

5) Everybody writes: Your go-to guide to creating ridiculously good content by Ann Handley
In my day job I work as a copywriter and I had this book recommended to me as a good one to check out. Very much looking forward to getting my mitts on this one.




Delete (Shift, #3)

6) Delete by Kim Curran

Part three of the Shift trilogy – the first two were great and I’m just hoping the sequel lives up to my expectations.




The Truth (Discworld, #25)

7) Any of the books I’m missing from the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett

Again, lumping all the books from one series in one number but that way I can fit more in! I’ve read almost all the Discworld series, but I don’t own all the books, which saddens me greatly. I want the complete set so I can reread them over and over again.



Clariel (Abhorsen, #4)

8) Clariel by Garth Nix 

I love the Old Kingdom series. This was a no-brainer.




Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1)

9) Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Six of Crows was fabulous and I definitely want to see more from the Grisha universe.




The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet (Wayfarers, #1)

10) The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers

I’ve had so many friends rave about this one that I really need to give it a go now.




So how about you? If you were given a fully loaded gift card what books would you buy? Don’t forget to link me to your TTT posts in the comments too!

Great list! I have a copy of Carry On but I still haven’t read it. :/

    Thanks Krystianna! Aaah I’ve heard good things about Carry On and I thought Fangirl was great so I really need to grab myself a copy of it at some point 😀

Ooo, Clariel! I haven’t gotten that one yet. And there’s a fifth book coming too. I need to catch up soon. I hope you get Cress and Winter soon, the Lunar Chronicles is one of my favorite YA series.

    Basically I need ALL the books! Really loved Cinder and Scarlet – I’m going to have to get Cress next pay day I think or see if I can find it at the library. Thanks for the comment, Jamie 🙂
