Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Wishes

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This is an incredibly generous topic: as Jana says

My birthday is today, so celebrate with me by granting the wishes of your friends! This is a popular thing to do on Twitter, but today we’re blog hopping. List the top 10 books you’d love to own and include a link to a wishlist so that people can grant your wish.

I do hope you have a lovely bookish day!!

For me, most of my reading is done on a kindle – I love the weight and feel and smell of a real physical book in my hands, but the simple convenience of the kindle makes it unbeatable on a day-to-day basis. So this list is a list of books I have already read which I would love to own in a physical form.

So the list below comprises of wonderful favourites, intriguing and gorgeous covers.

I have included my Amazon Wishlist here… but there is absolutely no obligation!

Let us just celebrate all that is wonderful in out books, our reading and our community!

  1. As your list shows that you’ve got such similar tastes in books to myself, and it gives me joy to look at it, I’d like to grant you a wish. Please can you DM me your address on Twitter so that I can send you one. @CHennighan
