The Broke and the Bookish hosts a weekly meme called Top Ten Tuesday. This week’s topic is Ten Books I Picked Up On A Whim. I’m not really a person who picks books up on a whim unless it’s super cheap. I have such a weird process when it comes to book buying so it generally takes a lot of consideration for me to actually spend money on a book that I’m not 100% sure on.
- The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
I just picked this up at a thrift store. I haven’t started reading it yet but it seemed intriguing.
- The Kingdom Keepers by Ridley Pearson
Since I’m such a Disney freak, I’m surprised I haven’t read this sooner. But I found it at a thrift store and thought fate but it there during my Disney withdrawals. I haven’t read it yet though.
- The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter
The ebook was on sale. I figured, why not?
- The Tiger’s Wife by Tea Obrent
I kept seeing this in the bookstore. Then one day, I decided I was just going to buy it and I’m so glad I did. It’s one of my favorites.
- The Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen
I think this was one sale as an ebook as well. I fell in love with this story.
- Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
I saw this when it first came out and I was inexplicably drawn to it. Such a fun summer story!
- Soulless by Gail Carriger
I remember seeing this YEARS ago but putting it back because I didn’t have money. Last year, I finally found it again and I simply adore the characters.
- Size 12 is Not Fat by Meg Cabot
I found this book around my house and I had nothing to read so I read it and laughed and laughed. Best find.
- Trouble is a Friend of Mine by Stephanie Tromly
I don’t remember when I first heard about it last summer but I read the description and immediately pre-ordered it. I devoured it and I couldn’t believe more people weren’t talking about it. In case you were unsure, I highly recommend- go read it!
- Uprooted by Naomi Novik
I was walking around the bookstore, like I do, and the cover caught my eye. It seemed familiar. It was calling to me. I bought it without a second thought and relished in the words.
What’s on your TTT? Do you love most of your whims or find yourself disappointed?
Happy Tuesday, y’all!
