Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was originally created by The Broke and the Bookish but was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This week’s topic is my ten most recent book purchases. I have actually held off quite a bit on buying books because I had some unexpected expenses come up and haven’t had as much “fun” money to use anymore. But! If I’m remembering my purchases correctly, these are all the books I’ve bought in the last 2-3 months.
Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon
This has been on my TBR for a while now and I was actually planning on preordering the paperback edition of it but managed to get a Kindle deal where it was only $1.99! If I love it enough I might still get the paperback edition.
This Is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone
I’ve heard so many rave reviews about this that I finally just got impulsive and bought it. I am actually reading this right now and so far I love it! So expect a review for this sometime soon!
The Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy by Laini Taylor
I read the first two books in this trilogy years ago and adored them but I never got around to reading book three. I kept meaning to buy my own copies so that I could reread them but I kept putting it off. So this was also an impulse purchase but I’m so excited to reread these and finally finish the trilogy!
New Books I Bought:
Belle Révolte by Linsey Miller
I preordered this and it came early!!! I’m so excited to read this. Definitely one of my most anticipated books of the year.
The Sound of Stars by Alecia Dow
This was also a preorder for me (comes out in February!) and I got approved for the ARC so hoping to get to this ASAP.
Beyond the Black Door by A.M. Strickland
Tarnished Are the Stars by Rosiee Thor
This short list basically just shows that I am out here supporting all the books with ace representation in them.
Books I Bought At the Thrift Store:
Into Thin Air by John Krakauer
I read Into the Wild a few years ago and saw this at the thrift store a few weeks ago when I was shopping with my sister so I’m looking forward to reading this!
Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke
Victoria Schwab has talked about this on her social media a few times and since I saw it I decided to try it out!
I’ve also gotten a few books off of Kindle Unlimited recently and am hoping to do some sort of post based around KU reading at some point this year!
And with that, I’m off to try and write another post. Happy Tuesday, everyone! Hope you’re having a good start to your week!
