Top Ten Tuesday: Books That I Refuse to Let Anyone Touch


Happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to the Top Ten Tuesday now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week's topic is Books That I Refuse to Let Anyone Touch which was submitted by Savannah Grace @ Scattered.  Here we go, in no particular order:


Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling - Sure my hardback copies of the series are worn, but I have too many memories to give them up.


Shades of Magic by V.E. Schwab - I want to keep these in good condition for as long as I can.


The Cal Leandros series by Rob Thurman - I have all of the books in this awesome urban fantasy series and I don't want to take a chance with them.


The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher - I have all of the books in the series so far and I don't want to lose any of them.  I can't wait for the next installment to be released.


The Among Us Trilogy by Anne-Rae Vasquez - This series is a real gem and I had the opportunity to act as a beta reader for the second and third books, so these are very special to me.


The Girl From Everywhere duology by Heidi Heilig - I adore this duology and I love sharing it with people, but just not my two personal copies.


The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis - This was brilliant - and since I've had my copy signed by the author I'm definitely not letting it out of my sight.


The Great Library series by Rachel Caine - I adore this series - I'm not ready for the grand finale!


The Firekeeper Saga by Jane Lindskold - I love this epic fantasy series so much.  I need to do a reread.


Have you read any of these?  What books do you refuse to let people touch?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting below!

  1. Ooh I remember that Lindskold series- I think I read the first one. It's been ages. The Cal Leandros series is on my list to try one of these days too.

    1. It's so good - I need to do a reread of both. :)

  2. Your reasons for keeping those books close to you make a great deal of sense.

    My TTT.

  3. Signed books are the best! I am lucky enough to have quite a few signed books and I don't think I'd ever loan them out 😁

  4. I actually shared the Harry Potter books with my sister, so I don't have my own copies, I'm collecting the anniversary editions as they come out so that I have my own collection!

    1. I suppose if it were with direct close family that would be a bit different. :)

  5. I wouldn't share the HP series either. The only person I have shared my copies with is my daughter and I can keep an eye on her while she reads them!

    My TTT.

  6. I have some really worn out HP paperback books, but they were my first ones and I don't think I will ever part with them either.

  7. I hadn't thought about the need to keep a set together when contemplating this week's theme. Good point. Can't loan out books from a set because what if it is not returned? My TTT list of the week

  8. I haven't read any of these (although here's my obligatory weekly comment saying I have to read one of VE Schwab's books, LOL). I'm seeing quite a lot of variety of books this week though!

  9. I totally understand wanting to protect favorites and signed books.

  10. I've read INK AND BONE, but it's been a long time.

    I honestly can't think of any books I wouldn't let someone touch. I'm just not that sentimental, I guess!

    Happy TTT!

    1. There are a lot I'll happily let people borrow or have, but some there's no way! :)

  11. I'm okay with loaning most of my books but the signed ones? Not a chance! :)

  12. I don't think I have any books I refuse to let people touch. I am, however, very serious about how people treat my books. I love lending them out, but I make it clear that if there is an issue with the book once returned, like a tear in the pages, then it has to be replaced by the person who borrowed it. I can see why this can be an issue with signed books, as it is not easy to just replace one of those! I haven't read any of these books, but I own Storm Front (finally found it at the thrift store!)

    1. Storm Front is awesome - I love that whole series! I totally understand about how people treat books. :)
