Books I Loved But Don't Own

Recently I've realized that I have read a bunch of great books that I'd like to reread, but I don't own. I feel dumb asking for a book I've already read just to put it on my shelf. But if I ever decide to do it, here are some books I'd buy because I already read them and loved them.

The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes - This is my newest favorite book. The best book of the year. I just read it and returned it to let the next person enjoy it.

Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds - Probably if I owned this, I would have read it 15 times by now.

The Secret History by Donna Tartt - I read this over a decade ago, but it still sticks with me as one of my faves.

You Suck (and also Bite Me) by Christopher Moore - These are books 2 and three of a series. Book 1 is fine, but these two books feature Abby Normal who is one of my favorite characters in all of fiction.

A Good Hard Look by Ann Napolitano - I have all of Flannery O'Connor's short stories, but I loved this weird little biographical fiction novel about her.

The Swans of Fifth Avenue by Melanie Benjamin - And lastly, a veteran on this blog. This book is so good! I did extra research after I finished it because I was so entranced.

So there you have it. Some books I will one day purchase for myself because I loved them and want them on my shelves. Do you have any books like this?
