Top Ten Tuesday: You already own that book!





Welcome to this week's edition of Top Ten Tuesday which is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's theme Bookish Superpowers I Wish I Had (e.g. never accidentally buying the same book twice, every book I buy would be automatically signed/personally dedicated by the author, the ability to read faster, etc.) (Submitted by Cathy @WhatCathyReadNext)

My list takes one of those suggestions and twists it just a bit. Fortunately, whenever I try to book that I already own, Kindle very gently reminds  me that I already own it! My list this week is therefore the books I have tried to buy more than one!

The Enchanted Garden Cafe by Abigail Drake - I have actually read this book, but that doesn't stop me from attempting to buy it again! (my review)

The Recipes for Love by Anni Rose - Food and romance. What isn't to love. And what's better than 1 book. Well a box set obviously!

The Other Side of Beautiful by Kim Lock - I think I first bought this after seeing Kim Lock at a reader retreat last year.

The Right Place by Carla Caruso - From memory this is another foodie book. I just read the blurb again and it does sound good!

The Last List of Mabel Beaumont by Laura Pearson - I saw this book around the place last year and bought it, and then attempted to buy it again.

Champagne for Breakfast by Maggie Christensen - I have read many, many Maggie Christensen books, but not this one! Yet.

Elizabeth's Star by Rhonda Forrest - This is partially set in New Guinea in WWII, which is a very unusual setting! 

This Has Been Absolutely Lovely by Jessica Dettmann - I read Without Further Ado last year and loved it, so now I need to read her backlist at some point.

The Irish Cottage by Juliet Gauvin - Maybe I should read this book soon given that Reading Ireland hosted by Cathy at 746 Books is about to start.

A Rogue of One's Own by Evie Dunmore - I can't even remember the last time I read a historical romance, and yet I still keep on trying to buy this one!


  1. I have done that too! I'm glad I'm not the only one. Here's my TTT: https://bonniereadsandwrites.com/2024/02/20/top-ten-tuesday-bookish-superpowers/

    1. I'm pretty sure it happens to lots of people

  2. This is such a fun topic! I’ve done it a few times, too. Thank goodness for reminders.

    Here is my Top Ten Tuesday post.


  3. I like your twist! I've never bought the same book twice, but I have almost bought the wrong book because it had the same title as the book I needed.

  4. Thank goodness for kindle reminders

  5. lol. I love this! I have tried to buy books more than once several times. I'm so glad Kindle warns us!

  6. I love your twist on this week's topic. I have definitely tried to buy books a second time and in fact a few times I have accidentally bought a second copy.

    1. I have too when there are different sources like review copies and Kindle!

  7. I love that Kindle reminds you that you've already bought that book! I've bought a copy of a book I already owned twice. And that was all my fault because I didn't check my Goodreads for the one. The other was a cookbook; my husband talked me into buying it. So now I have a copy, and he has a copy! LOL!
    Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!

    1. What it doesn't do is remind me when I already own the audiobook, so I have bought both the book and the audio
