Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Today’s all about books I already read and own, but want a second copy of. More specifically, the books I own as e-book or audiobook already, but reeeeaaally want a physical copy of as well to put on my book shelves. Because as much as I love e-books and audiobooks, they come with a major downside: you can’t put them on your shelves to stare at all day. And for me, when I really love a book, I feel like I also need a physical copy, like it’ll last longer. Does that make any sense?
So why don’t I just buy second copies? Well, I’m really cheap and can’t justify spending money on a second copy. Or I can, but it takes aaaaages to convince myself it’s a good idea. So I ask for them as gifts instead, but then this takes a long time as well since birthdays only happen once a year… So fellow book worms, please feel free to convince me in the comments and tell me what book/series I really do need to get a physical copy of!
Annette Marie’s series
I know, I know, I rave about Annette Marie’s books all the time. And yet, I only own physical copies of her Red Winter trilogy. I have them all on e-book, but for an author I adore as much as Annette Marie, I should really own them all in physical copy, right? But there’s so many of them, so where do I start?
Adam Silvera’s books
Another favorite author, and yet I only have his books as e-books. This can’t be! A physical copy would be better suited to hold the many tears I cry because of them.
My most re-read ebooks
All of the above books are books I own as e-book, but I’ve re-read each of them at least once already. To me, that’s a sign of an all-time favorite, which means I need them on my shelf for sure!
My most loved audiobooks
I only just started listening to audiobooks this year, so I haven’t done many re-listens yet, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have favorites yet. And boy, do I have favorites! I so need these on my shelf, just so I can stare at them and of course relive the book experience in physical form.
Love CIRCE. I can see why you want to own a copy. Books I want to own
Ooh I can’t blame you for those Annette Marie covers- whoever does those covers I love the design. Especially those first three and the Margarita ones.
I do occasionally buy a second copy if it’s a book I REALLY love. Either for the cover or just to have a “reading copy”,
I do own multiple copies of some books, even multiple physical copies (looks at her Pratchett collection).
Great list! The physical edition of Circe is SO PRETTY. I’m not sure if it’s the same for the US edition, but the UK edition is patterned under the dust jacket and it’s such a gorgeous book to own. I need to read Red, White & Royal Blue soon, I don’t think I’ve seen a single negative review of it, and I really want to get to The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo soon, too.
All of these books have such pretty covers.
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.
«Circe» has the most beautiful hardcover! (both dust jacket and the actual cover are covered in gold foil ornaments). Definitely worth buying it ?
Okay, so I really need to read Circe one of these days. You’ve convinced me. 🙂
Oh these are great choices! I need to get a copy of Circe – I still haven’t read that one yet!
There are so many pretty versions of The Night Circus out there, definitely a good one to have for your shelves!
