Top Ten Tuesday: Recent Book Acquisitions

Top Ten Tuesday is weekly meme created by the lovely folks at The Broke and the Bookish. They created it because they're "particularly fond of lists" and since I also enjoy lists, I've decided to participate in this fun feature.

Us bloggers get a lot of books. I don't receive nearly as many as other bloggers but I still found this week's Top Ten Tuesday topic really easy! I've listed the last ten books I've received, and where I got them from. And it's really only from June and July! Almost all were for review but there's one purchase, two library books, and a book loan in there too. What was the last book you got? Did you buy it or borrow it? Or is a book for review? Links will lead to Goodreads or review.

Broken Promise - Linwood Barclay
Book 1 of 3 waiting for me after I got home from BEA. This was an ARC I received for review for Niagara Life, the magazine I also review for. From Penguin Random House Canada 

In the Unlikely Event - Judy Blume
Book 2 of 3. Judy Blume's latest! Need I say more? Also from Penguin Random House Canada.

China Rich Girlfriend - Kevin Kwan
Book 3 of 3. My most anticapted read of 2015. And it totally lived up to my expectations. Also from Penguin Random House Canada.

PS I Still Love You - Jenny Han
This was one I borrowed from my local library, which is where I get most of my YA books! I just had to find out what was going to happen with Lara Jean!

Finding Audrey - Sophie Kinsella
Yet another book from Penguin Random House Canada. I was really interested to see how Kinsella approached YA.

Five Ways to Fall - K.A. Tucker
I don't own all of Tucker's Ten Tiny Breaths series (something I wish my wallet would allow for!) so I had to borrow the last one from the library.

All Inclusive - Farzana Doctor
This was a surprise ARC delivery from Dundurn Press and it came with some awesome swag, too.

The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster - Scott Wilbanks
Sourcebooks sent me this one to review as part of a blog tour. Isn't the cover delightful?

Christmas in the Snow - Karen Swan
I gifted this one to my boyfriend's mom for Christmas and when we went to visit last weekend she sent it home with me to read. Since I just read one of Swan's, I'm really excited.

Chasing River - K.A. Tucker
I was able to buy a copy of this one the weekend before it officially went on sale. I cannot wait to dive in.

Bonus: The Blue - Lucy Clarke
I'm adding this one in because I didn't take a picture of it when I got it so I'm not sure when it showed up. I also want to get the buzz started because IT IS SO GOOD. It'll be published in August. This ARC was from Simon & Schuster Canada.


  1. I definitely enjoyed both of K.A. Tucker's books you've mentioned here. I hope you enjoy them and all the rest!

    My TTT!

  2. So many pretty books! Ugh I still need to read so many K.A. Tucker books! I wish I had more time to read!!

  3. I really need to check out Jenny Han's books, I hear nothing but good things about them!
    Great TTT.
    I've just followed you via GFC, would love a follow back :)
