Top Ten Books I'd Buy RIGHT NOW.

Hey guys! I haven't done a Top Ten Tuesday in a while so I figured now was the time! Here's the top ten books I'd buy if someone gave me a super loaded gift card!


Deathnote Black Editions
I watched Deathnote a while on Netflix and it honestly got me so hooked. I was always one of those people to say that anime was dumb, but let me tell you, watching this completely changed my stance on it. I ended up falling in love with the story and just everything about it. I want to get my hands on these beauties!!

Saga volume 1
I have heard so many great things about this graphic novel series. I know for sure that it's something I'm going to love.

Everything, Everything 
I recently read Nicola Yoon's The Sun is Also a Star and ever since I've known that I wanted to check out Everything, Everything. Her writing is absolutely superb.

The Winner's Curse
I've heard nothing but amazing things about this series. Plus, the original covers are amazing.

The Goldfinch
I know that this novel is gargantuan in paperback, but I can't not want it. The story just sounds so amazing and it's actually something out of what I usually read because it's an adult novel.

S.
This novel is filled with two stories because the book is an actual book which is a story and then there's writing in the margins so that's kind of like a whole other story. Plus, there's tons of little papers and stuff that you can pull out.

Night Film
Raeleen over at padfootandprongs07 on booktube recently read this one and she explained it in a way that made me think I was going to love it!

Attack on Titan volume 1
I actually watched this anime on Netflix too and I loved how dark it was. Since the manga goes past season 1 of the anime, I want to pick it up so that I know what happens next!

Gemina
Okay, so I am just like everyone else that loved Illuminae. I'm a little saddened that this story isn't going to follow the same people, but I'm excited for it nonetheless.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
Not going to lie, but I was a little wary of this at first because J.K. Rowling didn't actually write it. However, after seeing countless amazing reviews of it since yesterday, I definitely want to buy a copy and give it a read!

  1. Omg great list!!! I need to read Death Note! I loved the anime. I also need Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Gemina, Night Film, and (I read it, but don't own it) Everything, Everything. I hope you are able to get all of these soon. :D

  2. Would you get the first edition hardcover for The Winner's Kiss like pictured? Because that one is definitely my favorite! The paperback redesigns just don't reflect the story as well to me.

  3. Gemina!!! I want that so badly. I really liked Everything, Everything. I'm interested to see how the movie lines up with the book. I have a copy of The Winner's Curse but haven't managed to read it yet. So many good books, so little time. Great list!!

  4. Great list! I loved The Goldfinch and Nightfilm and I really need to read both Illuminae and Gemina based on all of the great things I've been hearing about them.

  6. Great Top Ten! I watched most of the Death Note Anime, and really enjoyed it. Maybe one day I'll pick up the Manga! :D I already read and LOVED Everything Everything. I hope you love it too! I'm so jealous that you already got to read her new book The Sun Is Also A Star!!!! I can't wait to get my hands on it! :D

  7. Good choices! I actually do have the whole Death Note manga collection as well; it's the only series that I actually collect, haha.

  8. Ohhh, I need to read Everything Everything and check out Saga Volume One. S. sound really different. It seems to really take advantage of the format. Can't imagine reading that as an e-book lol.

  9. Great List. I have The Goldfinch though I am yet to read it. It does have some really great reviews though. I also would like to get Everything Everything. I hope that you will find all these books someday though. Happy reading.

  10. Looking forward to hear your thoughts on the Cursed Child. I'm a huge HP fan but I just don't want to read it for the exact same reason you said. Hopefully you enjoy it though!

  11. I have Saga Volume 1 and even though I found it so weird at first, I really enjoyed it :-) I've had the first volume of Death Note on my TBR for ages, but I just don't get around to it :-$ I haven't read Illuminae yet, but I'm planning to before Gemina comes out :-)

  12. OMG again why did I not think of pre-orders or special editions of books? This is insane and I have now thought of 20 more items lol!

  13. I need the rest of the Winner's Crime books. I only have the first one on my shelf. I read the other two on my Kindle. I love them so much!

  14. I would love The Winner's Curse, Deathnote, Attack on Titan volume 1 (I love the anmie) and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

  15. I can only say good things about the Winner's Trilogy. I absolutely loved it! And you are totally right, the covers are gorgeous!
    I was slightly wary of Harry Potter too, but the plot is really really good, and as it's written in a totally different format you don't really miss J.K.Rowling. I really hope you enjoy it!
    Illuminae made my list this week because I still haven't red it! But my guess is that I will be wanting book 2 immediately after finishing it!

  16. I haven't read past Winner's Curse, but I love that book! The world building is amazing, and Kestrel and Arin are just so perfect! Can't wait to read the rest of the series!

    Here's my list

  17. OMG Saga is sooooo good! It's one of my new fave graphic novels. You should definitely try it!

  18. Such great choices!!! I've been wanting to buy S. but it's so expensive (at least where I live). Hopefully I'll get a discount on it soon, haha! :) I own The Goldfinch but it's such an intimidating book.

  19. The Winner's trilogy is really great! I haven't read the last book yet, but I have heard it's a great ending to the series and the first two are great! I just bought The Goldfinch from Book Outlet and I'm dying to dive in but it's so huge!
    Thanks for stopping by The Local Muse

  20. I just got the new Harry Potter book AND I got the first book in the Winner's Trilogy last week when it was on sale. :)

  21. I have Gemina and Cursed Child pre ordered so I didn't think to add them here but YES to both :D Awesome selection here^^

  22. Excellent list! Everything Everything is great and the Saga series is just awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Awesome list! The Winner's Crime was on my list this week! The original covers make my heart melt. :D I hope you love Everything, Everything! It was one of my favorite books of last year. I just recently bought Saga Vol. 1. I want to read it, but I'm hesitant because of the hype. I didn't put Gemina on my list just because of the release date, but it is one of my most anticipated books of this year! I'm sad too that it's not going to follow Kady and Ezra!

  24. Gemina!!! I need that in my life as soon as it comes out! I grabbed my copy of the Cursed Child on Sunday - all it's done is made me want to see the play more... great list!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I literally just bought the first 6 volumes of Attack on Titan because B&N was having a buy 1 get 1 free sale on manga. I watched the anime a few weeks ago and became completely obsessed and did not want it to end. (Also really excited that Season 2 is coming next spring!)

  26. Death Note has been recommended to me for years, but I still haven't managed to get around to reading it (or even watching it haha), And I have Everything, Everything but I still need to get around to that one too :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Great picks for this week! I really loved The Winner's Trilogy so I hope you do as well, it's an amazing series, I am also so so excited to get my hands on Gemina as well. I'm sure it's going to be amazing, just like Illuminae was! :)

  28. What a fun and varied list of wonderful books. I can tell you did some serious shopping.

  29. The Goldfinch is an incredible novel. Very dark and slightly sinister, but brilliant. Even though it's definitely "adult" fiction, it follows the main character from when he is a child to an adult, so you still get that "growing up" feeling. Happy reading! :)

  30. I love The Winner's Trilogy so much. Definitely one of my favorite series. Loved Nicola Yoons debur novel and can't wait to read The Sun Is Also a Star. Great list!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I really, really want to get S. but it's soooo expensive (and only saw it once on the bookstore. ugh.). Great list!

  32. I have all of Marie's novels, but alas, I've yet to read them. Having already owned the first two, I did get book three (in the hopes I'd love the series) because I wanted my series to match, and the publisher redesigned the covers, so yeah, I *had* to ensure they matched. ;)

    Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland.

  33. YES! You need to get The Winner's Curse books with the original covers! They are simply gorgeous, and wonderful books. Also I've heard great things about Everything, Everything. Great list!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Death Note actually gave me nightmares hahahah! I plan to read the manga at some point though since I'm less likely to get bothered by that I think. (It's also why I haven't watched much of Attack on Titan - the Titans are just so terrifying O.O)

    ReplyDelete
  35. S. seems so unique and intriguing, but I'm really intimidated by it, because it seems kinda difficult to read it? At least from what I gathered from being guides on how to read it. Hope you'll get all these novels!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Everything, Everything and The Winner's Curse are two of my favorite books! I hope you like them :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I can't wait to read Gemina! Also, I hope you're able to get Saga soon. I was amazed by the first volume but after reading the third volume, I decided that the series wasn't for me. You might want to check out The Wicked and The Divine, that's another series that's getting a lot of buzz like Saga.

    ReplyDelete
  38. OMG ALL OF THESE. So many of these books are on my TBR and wishlist! But I had never heard of S. and it sounds really really fascinating - definitely going to have to look into that one :-)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ahh Everything Everything is AMAZING! I hope you get it soon! :)
