Last Ten Books to Come Into My Possession

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday they post a new Top Ten list prompt. This week’s list is the Last Ten Books That Came Into My Possession (bought, library, review copies, etc…).

I admit I may be a book-a-holic. I pick up books at thrift shops, used bookstores, new bookstores, and anywhere else that sells them. I also request galleys frequently enough that I receive a few a week. Then there are the ebooks, free, discounted, you name it. When all it takes is a few clicks to add a book to my collection the temptation is just too great. 🙂 With that said, I will do my best to remember which books were actually the last 10 that I acquired.

Click on the covers to go to the book descriptions on Goodreads…

1. The Curse of Crow Hollow by Billy Coffey

I won this book in a giveaway I found in the Shelf Awareness newsletter.

2. Booked For Trouble by Eva Gates

I received an ARC of this book to review from the author.

3. The Book of Lost and Found by Lucy Foley

6. The Young World by Chris Weitz
The Young World (The Young World, #1)
Won this one in a giveaway from one of many book newsletters I get in my inbox every week, but I don’t remember which one!

7. Daughter of Smoke and Bone series by  Laini Taylor
Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1) Days of Blood & Starlight (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #2) Dreams of Gods & Monsters (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #3)
This is really three books, I know, but Barnes and Noble had the Nook versions for 1.99 each, so I bought all 3…

8. Spiraled by Kendra Elliot
Spiraled (Callahan & McLane #3)
I won this one in a Goodreads giveaway.

9. The Prince and I: The Royal Biography Cozy Mystery Series by Julie Sarff
The Prince and I: The Royal Biography Cozy Mystery Series
Amazon had this one for free so I grabbed it.

10. The Remorseful Day by Colin Dexter
The Remorseful Day (Inspector Morse, #13)
My cover is a little different since it is a UK copy, but I picked this one up at a used bookstore recently.

Now how about you? Have you picked up any good books lately?

  1. Ha! With the Smoke & Bone series you came in at 12 books too. 😉 I am with you – it is so hard to remember the order I got my books in. All the different resources now to get books makes it difficult. I’m trying to hold back on my ARCs – I went a little crazy and i have a bunch in the queue. 🙂 Great list! A few on here I need to add to my TBR as well.
