TGIF (27): Most Valuable Book

TGIF at GReads is a feature by the fabulous Ginger, who asks us a fun question to answer every week. It's always a joy to be a part of this, and I think everyone certainly should try it out!

From your personal collection of books, which ones hold the most value to you - is it signed by the author? Or maybe it's your favorite story of all time? Share it with us!

It's no secret how much I love my book collection. My family knows how obsessed I am with maintaining the books in an orderly manner, and they also know of my claim to take everything with me when I get married. It's crazy how devoted I am to it! So this question is a little bit difficult to me because I value all of my books. But here are the ones that I really and truly value above all else:

Harry Potter 1-7

I have multiple copies of the series, but I truly treasure my complete set of hardbound editions. I would definitely cry if I lost one or found out one was damaged. Harry Potter is one of my all-time favorite series; it's the kind of book I would pass on to my children in the future.

American Girl

I have a collection of American Girl books and I LOVE them. They remind me so much of my childhood, and how I was completely fascinated by living vicariously through the girls. I would love to pass on the collection to my own daughter in the future.

Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy

This series is how I discovered and ended up falling completely in love with Maggie Stiefvater's writing. It's my favorite werewolf series, though I will be the first to admit that it's not completely perfect. I love the covers, I love the story and Shiver happens to be signed to me!

Precious Moments Bible

I have this Bible that was given to me as a gift when I was a young girl - it's pale pink and has Precious Moments illustrations in it. I treasure that Bible because I used to read it quite often, plus, it's quite beautiful. I wouldn't want to lost it.


  1. I have a feeling a lot of people will be listing their Harry Potter books! Nice choice with Shiver too!

  2. Great to know why you love those books!

    Here is my post!

  3. My old Bible is all marked up with highlights, underlines and notes I've written into the sides. I know where everything is in it. I feel so list when opening other Bibles

  4. So awesome to hear the stories behind your favorite books!

  5. I agree with you on the Harry Potter books! Those are the ones I will always want to keep.

  6. RIGHT? I loved the AG books and probably always will :)

  7. I'd definitely want to pass them on to my kids one day!

  8. I loooooved the AG books! I still have them on my shelf too, and I don't see getting rid of them anytime. It would be sweet to pass them down.
