Top Ten Tuesday – 10 Books I Loved So Much I Had to Get a Copy for My Personal Library


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 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is 10 Books I Loved So Much I Had to Get a Copy for My Personal Library.  Even though I read a lot of ebooks, including ARCS and listen to a lot of audiobooks these days, I’m still a collector of physical books at heart.  If I love a book, I want to display it on my shelves.  Below are just a few of the many books that I originally either listened to or read some kind of e-version and decided I just had to have a physical copy after falling in love with the story.

    I’ve not read any of these, but I’m glad you enjoyed them all so much that you wanted a physical copy for your library. I read a lot in audiobook these days and I don’t tend to get copies in a different format of books I’ve already read.

    I also got physical copies of House in the Cerulean Sea and Red, White and Royal Blue after loving the audiobooks 🙂 And Evelyn Hugo, The Simple Wild, The Love Hypothesis and Beach Read are all books I’ll probably get a physical copy of some day too because they’re all favorites and I just can’t resist buying them, even if I don’t have that much space *oops*

    I love having my favorite books on my shelves. It makes me happy to see them. 🙂 I, too, own physical copies of It Ends With Us, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, The Simple Wild, and Red, White & Royal Blue. All great reads!

    I loved The Love Hypothesis so much! 😀 I haven’t read any of the others, but most of them are on my TBR. 😀 It’s also really cool to find another book blogger using Enfold. How do you like it?

    I’m the same way. Sometimes I love a book so much I just need the physical copy.

    I have Seven Husbands but haven’t read it yet…

    I’m honestly surprised that I only have one copy of Evelyn Hugo and Cerulean Sea because those two are part of my all-time favourites and I want to have all the versions/editions I can get of them 😂 I still haven’t read Emily Henry but Beach Read is the only book of hers that I still don’t own though I was most excited for it. Great list!

    What a great list. I have It Ends With Us at home, and I guess the Alice Hoffman title is also here on my desk *lol* The pile is big… Thank you for sharing.
