Books I’ve Read but Won’t be Purchasing

Top Ten Tuesday is turning 10!!! Today I decided to redo a TTT prompt I did around this time last year which was Books I’ve Read but Don’t Own. I’ve restricted myself to only purchasing books that I’ve rated ⭐️4/5 stars or higher so these are 10 books that I rated lower than that, which I probably won’t be purchasing for my personal collection.
