Top Ten Tuesdays, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, feature lists related to all things bookish–characters, authors, titles, and favorites. They’re an excellent way to find new interesting books on a variety of topics, and to find bloggers that love the books you do.

Check out their blog for their top ten and lists by other bloggers!

August 27: Books I’ve Read That I’d Like In My Personal Library (perhaps you checked it out, borrowed it from a friend, received it for review, etc. and want to own it yourself.) (Submitted by Annemieke @ A Dance with Books)

This is a tough one, because I am a thwarted book hoarder (not enough space.) But still, here’s my list, in alphabetical order as always.

  1. The Girl in the Tower; Katherine Arden. Love this series.

2. Foundryside; Robert Jackson Bennett. It would look cool next to the trilogy of his I own.

3. City of Brass; S.A. Chakraborty. So pretty!

4. The Buying of Lot 37; Joseph Fink & Jeffrey Cranor. Does listening to the podcast count as reading? I say yes.

5. Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku: Fujita. I try not to buy incomplete manga series, but I want to re-read this one.

6. Robots of Gotham; Todd McAulty. I had this on another TTT, and remembered how much I liked it.

7. The Girl in the Green Silk Gown; Seanan McGuire. Honestly, I want to own most things this author has written.

8. Embassytown; China Mieville. The kind of weird you need to reread occasionally to see if you understand it better.

9. Circe; Madeline Miller. Sad and bittersweet, worth a re-read.

10. The Bookish Life of Nina Hill; Abby Waxman. Sometimes a book just gets you.

About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.

  1. I’m sure you could fit these on a shelf somewhere. 😉

  2. I loved Katherine Arden’s Winternight Trilogy, and Circe as well. Since I got them all from the library, maybe I should put them on my list too.

  3. Loved Foundryside so much–it almost made my list!

    More importantly, though: a fellow Night Vale fan!! I didn’t even think of their script collections when making my list! I desperately want to read them, especially for all the annotations.

  4. The Book Nerdigan says:

    I haven’t read any of these but they all look super good! Already adding a few to my TBR!

  5. Circe is beautiful inside and out! I’d definitely love a copy for my shelves too.

    I am lucky to have the complete Winternight Trilogy on my shelves 🙂

    City of Brass and The Bookish Life of Nina Hill are both on my TBR.
