This week’s Top 10 topic from The Broke and the Bookish is Ten Books You’d Buy Right This Second If Someone Handed You A Fully Loaded Gift Card.
Idun by Johanne Hildebrandt. Main issue here is not money, it’s I can’t find it. Anywhere. Except for in Danish.
Anything by Carol Goodman I don’t already have. I keep trying to get more of her work, because it’s basically representative of what I like in a book, but for various reasons my orders keep being cancelled and I get no books. I’m going to hunt when next in the UK.
The Sick Bag Song by Nick Cave. I have no idea why it is I don’t already own it. I’m a bad fangirl.
Fire by Mats Strandberg and Sara Bergmark Elfgren. I’m reading it for the reading challenge, and if I don’t buy it I don’t know how I’m supposed to read it.
Sawn-Off Tales by David Gaffney. I’ve been wanting to read it since I first read an excerpt some 2 years ago. Or so. I love the format, these tales read like dreams. Obsessed with it. Despite that, I’ve been cheap.
Den vita staden by Karolina Ramqvist. I’ve got part 2 in the series, makes no sense not having the first part as well.
Girl in a Band by Kim Gordon. Was eyeing it last time I was in Glasgow. I should have bought it then. One cannot own too many biographies by/about musicians is my motto.
Birgitta Stenberg’s autobiographies. Because they were just such a lovely read and I need them in my shelf.
Jag är din flickvän nu (I’m your girlfriend now) by Nina Hemmingsson. Again, how is it that I don’t already own this book? Example:
Mina vackra ögon (My beautiful eyes) by Nina Hemmingsson. From the book:
How do I not own this already? I have to go to the bookstore. Right now.
