Top Ten Tuesday- Books I Picked Up On A Whim

Top Ten Tuesday is a really cool original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten List that bloggers join in on answering... and today (May 17th) I'm one of them :)

Today's Topic

Top Ten Books I Picked Up On A Whim

  • I separated these books into random books I picked up and already read, and books that I've just recently received from BEA last week.

1.  Scripted by Maya Rock- I just randomly found this at B&N without having ever heard of it (at least I didn't remember ever hearing of it).  It's really out of my normal reading subjects, but I found the premise super interesting.  I ended up liking it a lot for it's different-ness.

2.  Those Girls by Lauren Saft- A random BEA '15 pick-up because it was a debut and I LOVE reading authors' first books!  I know I'm a black-sheep, but I loved the F out of this book.

3.  Fallout (Lois Lane #1) by Gwenda Bond- A random Capstone publicist asked me if I would read this at BEA last year.... and even though I'm usually not a superhero girl, I thought why not?  I just got Double Down at BEA this year, and can't wait to read it!

4.  Pretenders by Lisi Harrison- This is my guilty pleasure series.  I grabbed this first book at the library pretty much by accident, but then I got INVOLVED in the drama.  And to whoever is in charge of these books--- THERE BETTER BE A THIRD BOOK!!  I can't be left on the edge like this!

5.  Crash and Burn by Michael Hassan- I picked this up at the library because I loved the cover and title.  I had not ever heard one person talk about it before (or since).  I freaking loved the freak out of this book.  I might be the only damn one, but I don't care!!!!  I'm so glad I found this book.

6.  It's Not Me, It's You by Stephanie Kate Strohm- A Scholastic publicist told me about this book in the booth this year at BEA and I decided that it was up my alley.  I am really glad I went to the signing because the author was super adorable and nice!!  Also LOVE the cover :)

7.  The Forgetting by Sharon Cameron- If you know me, then you know that I rarely read Fantasy or Sci-Fi... but this book is SO pretty!!!  And since I'm trying to branch out......

8.  Spare and Found Parts by Sarah Maria Griffin- This sounds SO weird that I just couldn't say NO to it.

9.  The Romantics by Leah Konen- I saw this sitting in the Abrams booth and I just thought the cover was insanely adorable.  When I went to pick it up, it was GONE.... luckily one of my BEA Roomies gave me her copy :)

10  Seven Days of You by Cecilia Vinesse- I was at the Hachette booth getting the sequel to Wolf by Wolf and I could just tell this was one I would like :)

I can't wait to see everyone's lists because I have a feeling the books that we'll see this week won't be the usual books featured :)  Have you read any of my random books??  Or plan to?

  1. The Pretenders sounds amazing! I really want to read. It's not me it's you and Spare and Found Parts sound good too, and they are gorgeous!

    My TTT this week

  2. All the books here are interesting! I'm adding them to my wishlist :D

    MY TTT

  3. Great list! I still need to read Fallout. I also got a copy last year and despite being a fan of superheroes and hearing good things I never read it. And those BEA books you put are great. I should have put The Forgetting. I know almost nothing about it. Just that people I trust wanted it.

  4. The Forgetting looks so good! I hope you like it. 😀

  5. I also got 4 of those 5 BEA books. I picked up a lot that I'd never heard of, but the covers were cute or the descriptions sounded good or best of all I heard the authors speak about their books. I'm excited to read all of the books I got at BEA!

  6. I picked up Seven Days of You as well! I cannot wait to jump into this one. I love that it's set in Tokyo!

  7. Fallout was great- I hope you like Double Down! I wish I had gone to BE A! :)

  8. I really love Sharon Cameron's other books so I'm excited to try The Forgetting! And I still need to read Fallout, the cover is so great. Plus, superheroes :) Great list!

  9. It's fun to see some of the BEA pick ups... I think The Forgetting looks good, what a nice cover!

  10. A few of these look really interesting, but The Forgetting sounds especially good!! Thanks for sharing :D

    Here are my Top Ten!

  11. A lot of these I haven't read but I could not get into Those Girls. Man so many books, so little time.

  12. Ahhh! I cannot wait to read 'Lois Lane.' As a (movie) Marvel and DC Comics fangirl, I'd like to discover other superhero story avenues, and this novel seems like a great place to start. :)

    Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland, Michelle.

  13. I am super excited for the forgetting because I loved Sharon Cameron's other books! I hope you like it! I also got 7 days of you! It looks so cute!
