Top 10 Tuesday

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:

“I’m not interested. You’re drunk and disgusting.” – “OMG! That’s exactly right! It’s as if we already knew each other. This is magical!”

Mina vackra ögon (My beautiful eyes) by Nina Hemmingsson. From the book:

“It says that what’s in for women right now is… to be fucking difficult! We look good no matter what we wear, as long as we just keep going without thinking, it’s right on trend. The keyword for this spring is steamroller.” – “Is that really what it says?” – “Yes. By the way, I can feel your hungry eyes on my body, that’s really not very nice of you, even if you’re hardly to blame.”

How do I not own this already? I have to go to the bookstore. Right now.
