Books I Loved So Much I Had to Get a Copy

At this point in my life I’m pretty picky about which books I purchase. I usually won’t buy anything unless I’ve already read it and loved it. Even though I may outgrow these favorites as I get older, it’s so much nicer to look at my shelves and see familiar stories that I love to recommend than a bunch of books I may end up regretting having spent money on.

After many years of frequently moving house and a lengthy book-buying ban, my book collection is fairly small. It’s also missing some more recent favorites thanks to said ban, but here are ten books currently on my shelves that I bought after I read and loved them.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

  1. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
  2. Caraval by Stephanie Garber
  3. Heartless by Marissa Meyer
  4. The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski
  5. Delirium by Lauren Oliver – I wasn’t planning to buy this series, but then the paperbacks came out and I loved the covers so much I decided to get them
  6. If I Stay by Gayle Forman
  7. Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
  8. Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz – I owned this book when I was younger, donated it, then years later regretted getting rid of it and got another copy
  9. The Martian by Andy Weir
  10. Chew by John Layman and Rob Guillory – I read as many Chew volumes as my library had available, then bought the rest of the series so I could finish reading it. I’d like to own the entire series at some point, but at least I’ve read them all
