Top Ten Books I Refuse To Loan Out To Friends/Family
This post is likely going to sound extremely selfish, but first let me clarify! I am a BIG book pusher, and if I can convince my friends or family to read a book, I typically have no issue borrowing them my copy of the book! This post is all about the exception to that rule though, and why I won't borrow these ten books out to my friends or family! Sorry guys!
1. Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
-This is by far my most treasured and loved book. I have read it at least 20 some times now, and the wear and tear on it is definitely evidence of that! I refuse to loan my copy out though, for the simple fact that it was one of the first books that really got me into reading, when I was in elementary school. I even have the stamp on it from the book fair from my school, showing I'd bought it. It holds alot of memories for me, so I can't part with it for fear of something happening to it!
2. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
-Other than the fact that this is one of my most treasured series, a few of the books were presents from my dad before he passed away, so I would be devastated if I loaned them out and something happened to them.
3. Tithe by Holly Black
-This series started my addiction with fairies and fantasy in general, when I was a young reader. Last year I recently rediscovered this book (and series) and got it signed by Holly Black.
4. Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas
-I met Sarah last week at an event in Madison, and got this series (as well as ACOTAR) signed by her, and I can't bear to part with any of these books yet! Sorry friends! You will have to borrow these books from someone else!
5. The Selection Series by Kiera Cass
-Another series I recently met the author for, and got all the books signed.
6. The Distance Between Us by Kasie West
-I actually received this book as a gift from Ashley, and I absolutely ADORED it! Besides the fact that it is one of my favorite books I've read in 2015 so far, it also holds some sentimental value since I got it from Ashley! I can't part with this!
7. Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone
-Another book I received as a gift from Ashley that I loved! I hope I can meet the author one day and get this book signed! The setting was so close to home for me that I felt like I really connected with the plot and the story itself!
8. The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan
-It's the ONLY Riordan book I have signed by him, so I can't borrow this one out! Any of the others I have no issue with, but as far as this one is concerned, I'd like to prevent anything from happening to it!
9. My True Love Gave to Me Edited by Stephanie Perkins
-This collection of short stories is the UK version, which was expensive and kind of hard to get ahold of, so I don't want to borrow this one out! Also, I started bringing this book to author events, and slowly getting it signed by all the authors who wrote stories in it!
10. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
-Another signed book I am too afraid something would happen to, if I borrowed out!
