Top Ten Tuesday | On a Whim
Hello, happy readers! Here we go with another new week, and the start of a new week full of blogging (this week that is going to be true as I have two committed posts and plans for at least one other). As we come off of Armchair BEA (who else joined in that bit of fun?), I'm excited to join another Top Ten Tuesday meme.
As years have been added to my blogger tally, I’ve learned many a thing about my reading habits and life. One of the most important in my increasingly prolific (my type-A-must-post-something-three-to-four-times-a-week self is showing here) book blogging life has taught me is this: know what you like.
2. The Lady of Bolton Hill by Elizabeth Camden | When it comes to historical fiction, I'm picky. Why I don't know, but for some reason I have to play by a different set of rules when picking my historical fiction reads. This was an "on a whim" choice, and it wound up being a good one. Elizabeth Camden is now one of my favorite historical fiction authors, plus it helped that I can remember feeling some North and South vibes from this one. Just don't ask me to remember why (it's been too long since I read this). Amazon | Goodreads
6. These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner | This was another "give me the pretty" book purchase. But it wound up being a good one. The story is intriguing and since reading it, I'm constantly reminded that I'm still in need of reading its companion novels. Amazon | Goodreads
10. Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch | I don't remember if there was an underlying reason why I picked this one up, but either way, it was a random choice (I think) likely meant to introduce myself to more YA fantasy, and I wound up really enjoying it. Amazon | Goodreads
