Books I Would Love to Receive on my Birthday


Books make great gifts because they have whole worlds inside of them. And it’s much cheaper to buy somebody a book than it is to buy them the whole world! ― Neil Gaiman

It’s freebie week today for The Broke and the Bookish‘s Top Ten Tuesday! 😀

And because I just celebrated by birthday last Sunday, here are the books I would love to receive as gifts! 😀

1. Mitch Albom books!

I’ve read them all but I really want to have the ‘real books’. 🙂 I only have The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto and it is my gift to self last Christmas. 🙂

2. Nicholas Sparks books!

I’ve read them all, too, but I only have a copy of The Best of Me and The Rescue (birthday gifts from my dearest <3). Though I am not so in love with his latest works, I am still a fan. 🙂

3. Poetry books by Lang Leav

I am not sure if someone heed my request… but I have the sense that I’ll be receiving a book this week. 😀 (cross fingers)

4. Robert Galbraith books

I just finished Career of Evil and this series is surely one of the best mystery thriller ever! 😀 So I want to have the real books!!!

5. Rainbow Rowell books

I may not be a big fan of Carry On (I just read Fangirl and though I loved it, I am not fond of the Carry On parts so.. I won’t read it. :)).

But, I still love Rainbow Rowell and I would love to collect the ‘real’ versions of her awesome books! 😀

6. Liane Moriarty Books

I loved The Husband’s Secret and I am now reading Big Little Lies. 😀 Aside from the beautiful book covers, I do think that Liane will be my new fave author!

7. Jodi Picoult Books

I’ve only read Leaving Time and it surely is one of the best books so I guess I would love to read more Picoult novels. 🙂

8. Paulo Coelho Books

I’ve read 10 of his works and he is surely one of the most inspiring writers of our time. 🙂 So, yes, books please? 🙂

9. Graeme Simsion Books

I loved The Rosie Project a lot! 😀 And the covers are great, too! 😀

10. Kiera Cass Books

I loved the first three books! 😀 And, the covers are gorgeous! 😀

    1. Another missed comment. ARGH! Sorry my dearest, Fun. And… yes, I guess I do. 😀 But my number of read books are nothing compared to other book bloggers who can read more than 100 books per year! 😀

      Thanks, dear!

    1. YAY! Thank you, Chrissi! 😀 It is truly blissful to have the ‘real’ books compared to ebooks. For me, they are more special? 😀

      P.S. Have you posted your list already? I haven’t seen it on my reader yet. 🙂


  1. but you have already read most of these books, if someone was to get you a new paperback then it should be something you have never read and something different, right? I understand that you would love to have copies of your most favorites.. So tell me one genre you would like to read, something new?

  2. I read the Mitch Albom books and really enjoyed them – he’s such a great writer. However, I have not read anything else on your extensive list. 🙂

      1. Tuesdays with Morrie, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, Time Keeper and Have a Little Faith. I love his writing. You are welcome 🙂

  3. Nice list. One More Day by Mitch Albom – oh how I wish I could live that. I’ve read a lot of Nicholas Sparks novels – The Guardian touched me deeply and was the first book of his I read. And Jodi Picoult – an incredible writer, although I haven’t always agreed with her endings, like My Sister’s Keeper. Great book!! But I didn’t like the way she ended it. I’ve read most of her books. The two that stick out in my mind – 19 Minutes and The Storyteller. My dad, who never reads, was impressed by The Storyteller. I haven’t read Leaving Time yet. It’s on my read list for this year. Thanks for sharing. Take care.

    1. Awww. Yes, I know you can relate so much with For One More Day. It is an eye-opening read for me too, to love and to show to my parents as long as they are with me. 🙂

      I’ve heard a lot of great things about Jodi. And I guess The Storyteller will be on my list this year. 🙂

      Thank you for the recommendation, Kathy! And I hope you will love Leaving Time. 😀 Wish you all the best! 🙂


  4. Ah, I wish someone would give me books as gifts! I think my friends and family are mostly too intimidated by how many books I read to think they should give me even more books. 🙂 I’m reading a Jodi PIcoult book right now — The Storyteller — and it’s so hard to put down. I read a bunch of her earlier books (The Pact is amazing), but it’s been a while, and I’d almost forgotten how her books just suck you right in. I hope you get at least some of the books on your list!

  5. A great list you have there 🙂 I’ve read only one of the books pictured–the alchemist. It was wonderful. I need to read more of his books. I want to receive copies of my books. So I’d better finish the next one 🙂 other than that, hard copies of old favorites would be grand!
