Hey everyone, I’m back with another Top Ten Tuesday 🙂 This week’s theme is books that I picked up for a random reason, like seeing it on a shelf and liking the cover.
This is a weekly meme held by The Broke and the Bookish. Check out their blog if you get a minute because this blog hop is fab 🙂
All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
I picked this one up at Waterstones during the first week of its release, not really knowing anything about it. I’m so glad I did though because now it’s one of my all time faves. I highly recommend this one, it’s heartbreaking and beautiful and ahhhh.
The Year of the Rat by Clare Furniss
This is another one I found at Waterstones and bought it because the cover is pretty. I read it a while back but it was a very meh read, nothing special. It’s not that it was bad or anything, it just fell a little bit flat for me.
After by Anna Todd
Aha… yes. Well, I kept hearing online people talk about some random 1D fanfic and how it was being turned into a movie, so I checked it out not thinking much of it. Four huge books later and here we are, even though I originally read this series on Wattpad.
The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak by Brian Katcher
Again, I found this one during my random strolls around my local Waterstones. This one is actually quite funny with a lot of nerdy humour. The storyline isn’t anything solid or life changing but it’s a nice light read if you’re looking for one.
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
You know… I can’t even remember where I bought this. But again, I’m so glad I did! I love this book because of how hilarious it is, even though it discussed some quite serious issues.
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
I feel like this one might have come up on my suggestions on Amazon and I bought it because the cover is so cool and intriguing. And it certainly was both of those things, plus thrilling and glamorous. This is a vampire book which you should definitely read.
How to Be Bad by E. Lockhart, Lauren Myracle and Sarah Mlynowski
I bought this one because I freaking loved We Were Liars by E. Lockhart but I couldn’t even finish this one, I didn’t even get half way. I couldn’t get into the story and I didn’t connect or care for any of the three main POV characters :(((
The Fire Sermon by Francesca Haig
Have any of you seen the cover of this book? IT IS STUNNING. I’ve not read it yet, but after I saw it advertised on Goodreads I knew I needed it on my shelf. It looks good there sandwiched between Champion by Marie Lu and The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.
I know this list is a little short but I thought it would be boring to keep listing books which I bought and haven’t read yet. Have you read any of these books, what do you think of them? Again guys, thank you so much for reading! 🙂
