I’ve been quite the slacking blogger lately, but there’s nothing like a Top Ten Tuesday to recommit myself to reading and writing. This week I’m filling you in on the last ten books I managed to get my hands on, including one unexpected acquisition.
You Deserve a Drink by Mamrie Hart: The only purchase on this list! I bought this book in mid-June. Almost every other book on this list is from the library.
Horrorstor by Grady Hendrix: Before last month, I had never requested a book from my library network. I finally tried it and went on a bit of a binge. This was the first batch I picked up, along with…
Yes Please by Amy Poehler: Requested it from the library, got it with Horrorstor.
Looking for Alibrandi by Melina Marchetta: My last Marchetta book (maybe I’ll stop talking about her now?) and the next book I had on hold at the library.
Heaven is For Real by Todd Burpo: Funny story here! I went to pick up Looking for Alibrandi and An Ember in the Ashes, but I didn’t realize until I got home that they accidentally gave me the wrong book. Instead of AEitA, I got this book about a child who goes into a coma and says he meets Jesus. Which is definitely not my type of book. Needless to say, I didn’t read it.
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir: The day after the library gave me Heaven is For Real, I went back and got the book I actually wanted.
Swerve by Vicki Petterson: I got this book from a Goodreads First Reads. It came in the mail maybe a week or two ago. Haven’t had a chance to read it yet, but I’m hoping it’s good and creepy.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas: I go to a library down the street from my apartment now, but I can’t resist going to my parents’ local library whenever I’m in the suburbs. I happened to see Throne of Glass when I went in a few weeks ago.
Oh! You Pretty Things by Shanna Mahin: I grabbed this on the same day as Throne of Glass because sometimes I feel weird about being 22 and borrowing YA from the library? I’m a coward and always grab another book to take out at the same time. I’m in the middle of this one and it’s mediocre. And it was due back yesterday.
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh: I have been waiting for this book for so long and I finally have it! I requested it along with most of the other books on this list and I didn’t get it until weeks after the others. I can’t wait to read this.
And on that note, I’m off to go renew Throne of Glass and Oh! You Pretty Things, as this reminded me that they’re due back tomorrow. Whoops.
