Top Ten Tuesday (20)
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and the Bookish where a new top ten list is posted each week. This week is: Top Ten Books I'd Quickly Save if my House Was Going to be Abducted by Aliens. These pretty much fall into two categories - those that are signed and those that have sentimental value.
The Signed Ones:
1. All my Maggie Stiefvater books
2. City of Bones & Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
3. The Demon's Lexicon & The Demon's Covenant by Sarah Rees Brennan
4. All my Becca Fitzpatrick books
5. Bad Moon Rising by Sherrilyn Kenyon
6. Ill Wind by Rachel Caine
The Special Ones:
7. My 'Tomorrow When the War Began' books
When I decided I wanted to read these I quickly realised that several were out of print in the UK and only available used at freakishly high prices. My Mum actually tracked them all down and even ordered the trickier ones from Australia for me for my birthday!
8. The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge
This is one of my favourite books from when I was little and I now have the hardback collectors edition which is full of illustrations and maps.
9. My Harry Potter box set
My kid sister brought me these last summer and I ended up hugging the box and stroking all the books. They are so pretty and special and I love them.
10. Noodle's Knitting by Sheryl Webster
This was the first gift ever from my niece that I was given when she was born. It's soooo cute and it has fuzzy bits :) It was the ideal gift for me as I love both reading and knitting...plus it's fuzzy!
