This week’s theme is for books you loved reading (through borrowing, library, galleys, etc) and want to have in your personal library. As I’ve said before, I don’t own a lot of the books I read – I don’t have the kind of fortune for my habit – which means I most of my books in my reading lists are galleys, or through subscription services. I do sometimes get myself physical books for my personal library, but it is a small fraction. Even though I am not very big on rereading (*glances at my TBR mournfully*) I do love to see books on my shelves. If I could, I would have all the books I rate above 3 stars, but since I can’t these are the top ones I would nevertheless love to have:
Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles
Technically, I would love to own the entire series (I only have the last couple of volumes in print). I do want to reread it someday, and I want to have it so that I can occasionally open and admire the artwork.
Muse of Nightmares
Okay, part of it is that because I read this as an audio edition, I don’t have the print edition to pair with my existing copy of Strange the Dreamer
I would definitely love to own this series (the first two of which I read as galleys) in print form, too. Beautifully written stories, and beautiful covers, to boot!
I have the first book as a print ARC but I read the second as a digital galley. Feels like I should have the complete collection.
If You Could See Me Now
I read this years ago via library, and would love to have it as a print book!
An Enchantment of Ravens & Sorcery of Thorns
Just the beautiful covers alone are enough to make me want to have it in print (I read the first as a galley, the second as an audiobook), but the stories have definite reread potential and would make a fine addition to my personal library.
Which books would you love to add to your personal library?
