Hey loves! Top Ten Tuesday is a book blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! This week’s prompt is Books I’ve Read That I’d Like In My Personal Library. Now, I’ve made no secret of the fact that I’m an avid library user who basically never buys books and, in fact, only own 14 YA books despite reading 100+ per year!
So as I started writing this post, I realized that it was just a list of my all time favorite books, and I’ve done many posts like that in the past; it’s pretty redundant.
So instead, I decided to compile a list of my Top Seven Books I Think I’ll Bring To College (oops couldn’t find 10). I’m leaving for college soon and can’t bring many books with me, and I’m not sure what the library system will be like, so I’ll definitely be bringing a few. Here’s what I’m thinking:
Comfort Books To Reread
I reread books all the time, and these are some of my comfort reads that I’ve reread tons of times. I think I’d like to have a few of these with me to make me feel happy and at home.
1. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
This book means the absolute world to me! I’ve read it 3 times (and seen the movie 5 times), and Lara Jean is the most relatable protagonist I’ve ever read about, so having this copy with me to reread whenever I’m feeling stressed will be like having a friend with me.
2. Ella Enchanted
This was my childhood favorite book! I have no idea how many times I’ve read it; enough to crack the spine and batter the edges so it’s very well read. Reading this always makes me feel young again and brings back good memories.
The Lunar Chronicles is my favorite YA series, and also the only series I own in full, so I know having this book on hand will make me always feel happy. Also, this 800+ sucker is so long I know if I can’t get to the library and don’t have enough books, it’ll take me a while to get through this beast.
Unread ARCs I’ve Been Saving
I used to not have any unread books, but after I hauled a ton at Yallwest and have received a few from publishers, I have some now! I’ve been saving some to bring to college so I know I’ll have new books!
I’ve been looking forward to this book since I got it in May, but have held off so I have have it at college. If I’m stressed from classes, what better thing to do that escape to a world of dragons?
5. Paul, Big, and Small
This is another book I got at Yallwest. I wasn’t too excited to read it so I left it for a while, and now I figure I’ll just bring it to college.
6. The Candle In The Flame
I know this came out in May, but I got it at Yallwest so I had no obligation to review it or read by the publication date! Instead it’s been sitting around so it’ll be perfect for college.
How many books do you think is a good number to bring to college? I love reading but my dorm is tiny! What are some books you’d like for your personal collection? I’d love to chat in the comments below!
