Ten Books We Picked up on a Whim


This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is all about books we’ve picked up on a whim.  This was a bit harder than we thought because now a days it’s all about what’s the latest hype on Twitter plus the creation of Goodreads. Most of these books we picked up we just found them on the shelves either at the library, Borders, or Barnes and Noble.

As always Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

  1. Oooh, “The Dark Unwinding” is one I’d really like to read. I LOVE “The Selection,” and also am all too aware that I’m long overdue for delving into the TOG world. 🙂


  2. Oh so many good books on here! I have read some of these amazing ones though all but one, Shiver, which made my list as well were based on recommendations or author love lol like Daughter of Smoke & Bone, Darkest Minds, Throne of Glass, Raven Boys (because I loved Shiver), and I’m currently listening to the Selection series! I do have Angelfire, Ready Player One, Graceling, and Percy Jackson on my TBR and hope to at least get Percy Jackson caught up this year! Great list! My Top Ten


  3. I also randomly picked up Daughter of Smoke and Bone and loved it! And same with Alanna (which lead me to read the rest of Tamora Pierce’s books, basically) 🙂
