Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I'd Buy Right This Second If Someone Handed Me a Fully Loaded Gift Card!

As always, Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish !

Ah, the gift of a gift card meant solely for book buying, a book lover's dream! If someone handed me a fully loaded gift card right now, ten books I would buy are:

I have almost pre-ordered this book so many times, but haven't hit that button because of my budget. This would immediately be snatched up if I had that magical gift card! It has a fascinating mystery, unreliable characters, psychological thrills and suspense, secrets and lies....all things I love in books!

I'm fascinated by true crime, in particular Jack the Ripper. This is a newer book, and thus still quite expensive.

I love Megan Abbot, and I really want to get my hands on a copy of her newest book, which is especially awesome as it is set in the world of gymnastics.

Famous mystery writers (including some of my absolute favorites) plus famous true crime cases makes a book I would love to have! As this is an older book, and is no longer being published, it is hard and expensive to get your hands on a copy.

I collect all things Agatha Christie, and desperately want these hard-to-find (and thus pricey) graphic novel versions of her books. There are a few more than these three, but these would be my top picks, as these are my top three favorite Christie books.

This is another instance of one of my favorite mystery writers tackling a true crime case. This one tends to run expensive even in paperback, hence why it needs that magical gift card.

I collect true crime magazines such as these. These are out of print now, but I would so love to own them.

There are so many more books I would love to buy, but here are ten of them! What would you buy with that wonderful magical gift card?
