Top Ten Tuesday was created and is hosted by The Broke And The Bookish. This week's topic is books I'd save if something disastrous was happening to my house - the ones I'd immediately grab if I suddenly had to get up and go.
In no particular order:
Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken - My paperback signed copy, of course. Maybe I'd even risk arm space and grab my hardcover copy too, just because I love the book that much.
The Forest of Hands and Teeth & The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan - My favorite zombie series ever. They're both signed hardcovers from when I met Carrie at Smart Chicks in 2010. I can't wait to meet her again at RT this April and get a signed copy of The Dark and Hollow Places!
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor - I wish I had a signed copy. I'd probably throw myself down a flight of stairs for one. (Okay ... maybe not, but you get the point) But this is still one of my all-time favorite books and it'd definitely be in my pile of books to save!
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson - It's an arc, but I got it signed when I met Maureen at BEA and she complimented me on my shiny, foil business cards. That is such a lame story, but it's MAUREEN JOHNSON, people.
Sisters Red/Sweetly by Jackson Pearce - Out of all of the authors who write about fairy tales/Grimm tales, Jackson is my favorite. I'd definitely grab these two, especially considering Sisters Red is signed. *hugs book*
The Nightmare Before Christmas: The Film - The Art - The Vision by Frank T. Thompson - This is like my bible. I read it religiously. I know possibly everything there is to know about The Nightmare Before Christmas and it's production process, but I could reread this a million times and never get bored.
I have to stop myself there. If only I had super human strength and could just pick up and carry my entire bookshelves. Choosing books to save amongst your favorites is like picking a child to save. (Okay, maybe not as dramatic but again - you get my point!)
OH AND! - Just taking a moment to pimp myself out here, but I have two entries up for voting in the Dark Divine Talentmania fan art contest! The prizes are phenomenal and I'd love to win, so click here to take a look around at the entries and if you like my entries enough, please give them a vote! My entries are #1 and #3!
