Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I Picked Up On A Whim

Top Ten Tuesday version 2


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the girls over at The Brooke & The Bookish. This week’s topic is Ten Books I Picked Up On A Whim. I’m not very good at this because I usually plan out the books I read, like weeks in advance. For the most part, for the first half of the year, I’ve been reading the new releases of 2016. I haven’t really picked up an older book in such a long time it feels like. But I’ll attempt to get at least five in.

The Lovely Reckless and Passenger were both ARCs I received from Netgalley and I picked both of them up well before their publishing date just because I kind of felt like it. I don’t know if that means on a whim, or if that counts, buuuut I’m counting it. And for The Unexpected Everything, I was about to put the book down because I just wasn’t feeling it, but on a whim (see what I did there?) I decided to try one more chapter and now I’m hooked.

I picked up, and finished First & Then in one day and I was totally, utterly in love with it. I’d never even heard of it before, I just saw how pretty the cover was and I figured why not?

So I guess I did have more books I chose on a whim, than I thought I did, but after these ten I really can’t think of any. Well, I can’t think of any that I’ve actually read through. Some of them, I’ve picked up on a whim at the store to buy, but I haven’t actually read them yet. It’s all these new releases, they’re distracting me!

I hope everyone has a fantabulous day/evening/morning/whenever you’re reading this and happy reading!

  • I just love the cover for First & Then! And I can’t forget Morgan Matson’s book, Unexpected Everything. I have to pick that up soon. Great list, Olivia.
    Lovely blog by the way!

      It’s such a beautiful cover, I usually don’t buy physical copies of books I’ve already read on Kindle, but I think I have to with that one!

      I’m currently reading The Unexpected Everything and it’s amazing! I definitely recommend it as a summer read.

      And thank you so much 🙂 I’m heading over to your blog now!

  • I picked up Anna Dressed in Blood on a whim as well and it has definitely made it on my list of books that sucked me in!

      It really was such a good book! I honestly didn’t expect to love it as much as I did.

  • I’ve been wanting to read Anna Dressed In Blood for YEARSSS and I still haven’t picked it up. This is giving me the push to do so, especially because I hardly ever read anything Paranormal. (I do like it btw lol) I got The Unexpected Everything on a whim too! I was going to pick it up anyway, mainly because I really enjoy Morgan’s writing, BUT I just didn’t know when I was going to do so. Anywho, when reviews started rolling in and they were RAVING about it, I said fuck it and ordered it lol

      Girl, you definitely need to get on Anna Dressed in Blood ASAP! It was SUCH a good read, I honestly couldn’t put that thing down! The MC is hilarious and sarcastic (literally my fav) and a guy, which I don’t read a ton of books where the guy is the MC and manages not to be super whiney and/or hella brooding. I’m reading through The Unexpected Everything right now, and it’s so good! It’s definitely the longest contemporary I’ve ever seen, but it’s not long in a bad way if that makes sense hahah.
