Top Ten Tuesday # 35

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and is a chance for everyone to get to know fellow bloggers and share lists. I love lists. Every week is a different list.

This week is Last Ten Books That Came Into My Possession.

I had to think long and hard about this own, and it's a bit of a weird mix. All sorts of different books have ended up in my possession from all sorts of places!
  • The Secret Fire by CJ Daugherty and Carina Rozenfeld
    • This one was sent for review from Atom, it's actually the first review copy I've been sent for a while as I've been taking a bit of a break, but this one I could not resist.
  • Ms Marvel
    • I have fallen more than a little bit in love with Kamala. She totally rocks. I can't believe that I had forgotten to pre-order this gem!
  • Witchrise by Victoria Lamb
    • I read and loved the first two Tudor Witch books, so much so that I bought my dear bookish friend Steph the whole trilogy for her Christmas - without having read the third! She has very kindly lent it to me so that I can find out what happens to Meg.
  • House of Many Ways by Diana Wynne Jones
    • Again Steph lent me this one - she was pretty shocked that I hadn't already read this series and so she's pretty much pushed them on to me. And I've been loving them!
  • This Is Not A Love Story by Keren David
    • Keren David is an amazing UKYA author and when this came out I knew I had to have it. Especially after reading the masterpiece that was Salvage earlier this year.
  • Unspeakable by Abbie Rushton
    • This was actually just an impulse buy. I've never heard of the author or even the book, but I was browsing Waterstones and just decided to go for it.
  • Darjeeling: A History of the World's Greatest Tea by Jeff Koehler
    • I won this from Bloomsbury's Facebook page and it is incredible. I'm usually not a fan of non-fiction but this is so engaging that I couldn't put it down. Plus, there are recipes in the back that I can't wait to try out. Although I'll probably fail miserably.
  • Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
    • Another one that Steph let me borrow, yay! It's a series I've been wanting to read for a long while.
  • Feels Like the First Time by Casey McMillin
    • This is actually an audiobook that I won, and not something I'd usually go for. For one the narrator is American and I usually struggle to stay engaged with the accent.
  • Decorative Tile Designs by Marty Noble
    • This one is a colouring book. Don't judge me! I love love LOVE to colour. And this new "craze" for adult colouring books is excellent, means there's a lot more choice now after so many years of colouring in fairies and pirates.

What book has most recently came into your possession?


  1. The Darjeeling books sounds great! It is nice that you have a wonderful bookish friend who lends you books :) I need more of those! haha

  2. You've gotten great books recently! Maggie Stiefvater's writing is the best. I really want to check out Ms. Marvel!
