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 week's prompt is Books I Loved So Much I Had to Get a Copy for My Personal Library: Interesting prompt and most of these will be books from some of my favorite authors, one's that I received for review and ones that are dear to my heart. A mixture of YA and Middle Grade. In no particular order....
I own so many copies of this book, mostly because of the illustrations and cover.
I attended a Traumatic Brain Injury Conference in 2001 where Cathy Crimmins was the guest speaker. She talked about her husband's injury in a boating accident and his recovery. I was inspired to pick up her book to read more of the story.
I first started Nevernight as a NetGalley read. But since Jay Kristoff is a fan of endnotes in this book, which when reading the e-book version made things very challenging, I decided to order a hardcover. It was just too hard to flip to the end of a chapter in electronic format and then flip back. For ease of reading, and well because I really liked the book.
I first read Heidi in German, which is now kind of rusty, so I purchased the English edition so I could enjoy reading it again.
I have this on audiobook and absolutely love this book. I purchased this one just because of the cover and to re-read it again.
When I was little my mom would let me and my sisters order one book each from the Scholastic flyer. One year we convinced her to get the boxset. It was so fun to share the books with them. Since then, I've picked up the first book in the series for a reading challenge.
