Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Picked Up On A Whim

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter
    The ebook was on sale.  I figured, why not?
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
  10. 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!

  1. Uprooted was amazing! I still have yet to own a physical copy of it, though, since I’d read it a while back when it was still an ARC. It does have a lovely cover (and I’m actually just as much a fan of its European version as well).

    1. I love all the covers. That’s the one thing that bothers me about ARCs. If I read & love them on Net Galley, I want to buy the physical copy but it’s hard to justify buying a book I’ve already read.

  2. I hope you like The Historian when you get around to it. I loved it when I read it! Granted, that was like 6 years ago now. I keep meaning to do a reread, but I’m scared it will shatter how ideal the book has become to me. Either way, I remember it being a very intriguing mystery.
