Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s theme is:

My Dream Book Purchases

The short answer to this question would be ALL the books, amirite?!?! But since that isn’t particularly feasible (and I’m still bitter about that to be honest) I decided to narrow the list down to some gorgeous editions which I would love to own. Please, please, please could someone give me a loaded gift card so I can buy all of these pretties?!?!

I would LOVE to own this beautiful collection. Unfortunately it was a limited print which was rather difficult to get a hold of in the UK even when it was still in production. These covers are life.

penguin threads2

I own The Secret Garden Penguin Threads edition and it is simply gorgeous. I really want to get the rest too!

vintage austen classics

These editions are just so pretty (and still readily available!) I really would love to own them. It will happen – I feel it in my bones. 😉

whites fine editions

Another (sob!) limited run, these editions are extremely rare and quite sought after. I especially love the Wuthering Heights cover – it’s so moody and atmospheric!

fitzgerald anniversary

Look at these stunning beauties! I love the gold and silver foil look – makes the books look rich and sumptuous. I have actually not read any F. Scott Fitzgerald so buying these books would really be doing myself a favour, right??

roads classics1

I just love the stunning simplicity of these covers. I recently bought The Hounds of the Baskervilles and it is just so pretty – I must buy more!

classic lines

These are a somewhat modern-take but I really, really like these covers. I don’t normally like it when classics have really modern covers but these have totally won me over.

These covers are just so cute!! I absolutely covet them. 🙂

word cloud classics

I love the simplicity of these covers and it was a genius idea to add quotes on the cover – I really, really want these. 😉

clothbound classics

These are just so classically beautiful. I really love cloth bound books since I have an aversion to leather (veggie here!!) so these are the perfect alternative.
