Top Ten Tuesday: Editions I Would Like to Own

Hosted each week by That Artsy Reader Girl, it's a meme for listing the top ten for everything bookish.

Today's topic is "Books I’ve Read That I’d Like In My Personal Library". That would be too long of a list for me, so, instead I'm going with specific editions I would like to own. Now, I don't really actively go out and collect all of the different editions of the books I like (although I think it's fine if you do). But I really like some of the different book covers a book will have and if I see a different edition at a book sale or for cheap online, I will add it to my collection. Today I'm going to list some editions I want, whether because I think the cover looks nice or to complete a collection

1. Sarah Dessen Paperbacks
I have an oddly extensive collection of Sarah Dessen books. All in paperback. It is usually easy to find Sarah Dessen books at book sales, but I would like to someday complete my UK collection.

2. Unearthly Aussie Covers
Unearthly (Unearthly, #1)Hallowed (Unearthly, #2)Boundless (Unearthly, #3)
I'm probably never going to own these covers but they're so pretty!

3. New Percy Jackson covers

I have the original covers, but I also have a copy of The Titan's Curse in the new cover so I would like the rest to match. I mean, look at all those spines together!

4. Hardcover of These Broken Stars
I own an ARC copy of These Broken Stars and I know some folks like to collect ARC copies, I don't (I prefer to collect different covers). Right now it looks really short next to the other books in the series so I would like a hardcover to match them.

5. New Summer series paperbacks
The Summer I Turned PrettyIt's Not Summer Without You (Summer, #2)We'll Always Have Summer (Summer, #3)
I have the original covers, the UK covers, now I would like these.

6. Sea of Monsters Illustrated
This doesn't exist, but I have the illustrated edition of The Lightning Thief and I hope they continue making illustrated editions for the series!

There are plenty of other books I would like to own, but I could only think of these six right now! When it comes to other editions, it's mostly a scavenger hunt! I'll pick them up when I see them at a used booksale!

What books do you want to own?


  1. The new PJO editions are pretty great.

  2. I have that PJO box set and they are so nice. I hope you can get your hands on it someday.
