toptentuesdayTop Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s topic is Ten Books I Picked Up On A Whim.
For me that may mean I picked from the cover, or the blurb caught me or I thought maybe I heard good things but couldn’t remember.

Books I Purchased on a Whim


Coming Clean: A Memoir // I heard an interview with the author and was so intrigued by the hoarding aspect
You // OK so now this book is super popular. When I actually bought it I hadn’t heard much but again heard an interview with the author and it was on sale.
The Premonition Series // Again this was a kindle cheap buy at first. Then I was hooked and a new favorite author.
In the Fields // I can’t remember if it was cheap or free but this was another great find.
When It Rains // No idea how I found this one but it made me cry so much.
My Horizontal Life // Again I picked this one up when Chelsea Handler wasn’t so popular. It instantly sparked my love for her.

ARCs I Picked on a Whim


Absolutely True Lies // Girls Who Travel //The Two of Us // Preschooled
These were all based on covers and summaries and wound up being worth the chance.

What books have you picked up on a whim?

  1. I have only read You from your list, and it wasn’t a whim purchase for me because I had read all of your amazing reviews for it. But I loved that audio!
    I did make a whim purchase yesterday and omg I have so many regrets right now. Haha! I can’t even label it as read on goodreads, because wayyyy more smutty than I thought it would be.
    I’m not usually one to make whim purchases, in all honesty. And it’s better I stay that way.

    Great list of books! I am always looking for recommendations to add to my TBR pile (thanks!). I recently read a super funny book by former comedian Margot Black called “Where’s My Award? How to Get Baby Barf Out of a Red Carpet & Other Tales from a Working Mom in Hollywood” . This book is a MUST read for working mommies who are looking to inject some humor into their routine. The author works as a celebrity publicist in Hollywood while trying to raise a family and her stories about daily life are crazy!! She talks about the pressures of being a “perfect modern mom” and her memoir is heartfelt and relatable (minus the celebrities!!) I really hope you will check it out and perhaps it will make it on a future list of yours. Would love to know what you think
