Top Ten Tuesday: Freebie || Books I Hope to Get for my Birthday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish,
Now, hosted by Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl 
To take part, just pick your top ten, and add the link here.
This week was supposed to be "Book Quote Freebie". But today is my birthday, turned 36, and I do what I want. (the 24th is my birthday)
These are the books I hope to find on my bookstore visit. It has been several years since the last time I've been to a book store. About 3 years, I don't have a local bookstore, so I hope on this trip I can find some books that I've been wanting to read and own for a while. This bookstore is about a 20-30 minute drive away from me.
There's no guarantee that I will find any or all of these since I am going to a second-hand store. It is going to be hopeful thinking for most if not all of these.
The Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson - Have not read this, but I've liked everything else I've read by him. Even his least popular series, The Reckoners. So I'm pretty sure I'll like this too. I do have the first book as an Ebook, but I like to reference maps when a book has one, and that's harder to do with an ebook than with a physical book.

Theft of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan - This had been on  my 'want to read' for a while before I started hearing a bunch of good things about it. This is the first book in a cross-series story. If I can only some of the books from this cross-series that will be fine as well.

The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang - I've already read this trilogy, but I would love to own it.

The Bone Shard Daughter by Andrea Stewart - Another that I have been wanting to read for a while. I think the third book is coming out sometime this year.

Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend - I've read the three books that are out, but all through my library. I love this series so much, and would love to own them.

Yona of the Dawn by Mizuho Kusanagi - I'm almost completely caught up with the translated volumes, so I'll take any I can find there. 
The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan - I keep hearing that the book is better than the show, which... low bar. I could just get this from the library but it's just a touch too long for me to read in the 3weeks that I can borrow it for and the wait time is also too long for me that if I don't finish it in 3 weeks to put it on hold to finish.

There are a lot of books that I don't own that I would like to, these are just some of them.


  1. Nice twist to the prompt - and it's good to have a shopping list so you don't get distracted by other books when you shop! my list is here:

  2. Happy Birthday! I hope your trip to the store is fruitful. I, too, have to drive aways to get to a bookstore and I never know what to expect. My quotes

  3. Happy Birthday! I hope you find all of these books (and/or other gems) in the store when you visit! 😍 I love Nevermoor and recently bought the series to add to my shelves too!

  4. Happy almost Birthday to you!! I've bought the first 3 books in the Nevermoor series for the kids at school and whenever one of them take it out, I glare fiercely at them and tell them to take good care of it. Would love to have it on my own shelf as well yes.

    Have a wonderful birthday and I hope you will get all your books.
