Top Ten Tuesday (#7)


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because everyone loves a good list, don't they? We love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Ten Books I Picked Up On A Whim


No recommendations. No reviews. No research. These are books that I randomly picked up...

  1. 13:24: A Story of Faith and Obsession by M. Dolon Hickman - I found this one on Netgalley. I was a bit hesitate to request it (no reviews and it was different from what I normally read), but something drew me to it. I ended up really enjoying it.
  2. 44 Chapters About 4 Men: A Memoir by B. B. Easton - One of my friends on Goodreads added this to her TBR list. After reading the blurb for it, I one clicked it. I ended up loving it. Totally funny.
  3. Bird Box by Josh Malerman - All I knew when I picked this one up was that it was a horror/thriller. While I was a little disappointed when I initially read it, I ended loving it (yes, even after it gave me a nightmare, lol).
  4. Mud Vein by Tarryn Fisher - I kept seeing this book around with pretty decent ratings, but I had no clue what was in store. Mud Vein definitely made me a fan of Tarryn's work. Going in blind is definitely my recommendation for her books.
  5. 120 Days... by M. Stratton - This is actually the book I'm currently reading. The cover is what drew me in originally and the blurb is why I decided to one click it.
  6. F*ck Love by Tarryn Fisher - I have no idea what this book is about as I haven't gotten a chance to read it yet. I one clicked it as soon as I found out about it simply because it's by Tarryn. I'm sure it'll be good.
  7. Even the Moon Has Scars by Steph Campbell - This is another one I haven't had the chance to read yet. Between the title, cover, and blurb, though, I just had to have it.
  8. Flat-Out Love by Jessica Park - I had no idea what this was about whenever I picked it up, but it was on sale and I kept seeing it everywhere. I ended up enjoying it and reading the sequels.
  9. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson - I picked this up randomly a few years ago while browsing Barnes & Noble for a book to read on a flight from Michigan to Georgia. I ended up loving the trilogy (and hope to read the forth book soon).
  10. Butterfly Dreams by A. Meredith Walters - This is another book that I haven't had the chance to read yet. Like books by Tarryn Fisher, I one clicked this one solely based on the author. I've really enjoyed A. Meredith Walter's books before, so I grabbed this one whenever I found out about it.
This was a difficult list for me this week. I generally read reviews before I buy a book (and almost certainly read reviews before reading the actual book). Sometimes, though, going in blind is wonderful.
