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.
Over the last three years, I have only purchased one book for myself, and that was The Hate U Give. Since I started reading more, I didn’t think it was a great idea for me to purchase the books, so I made use of both my public library and my school’s library. In fact, I can’t think of a single book I have read over the last many years that wasn’t a library book, so this should be a pretty fun list.
#1 – The anniversary paperback Harry Potter Series. Okay, so this one isn’t completely following the prompt because I technically own the Harry Potter series, and I have started collecting the large books illustrated by Jim Kay. But I really love the cover art of the anniversary set that was released this year.
#2 – Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo.
#3 – Property of the Rebel Librarian by Allison Varnes
#4 – Dear Martin by Nic Stone
#5 – Miles Morales: Spider-Man by Jason Reynolds
#6 – Forget Me Not by Ellie Terry
#7 – Animal Farm by George Orwell
#8 – Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds (should I just say “anything by Jason Reynolds?”
#9 – Long Walk to Freedom – Nelson Mandela I have wanted to read this for a very long time, so it would be nice if it were on my shelf, and I could grab it anytime.
#10 – A first edition copy of To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
