Top Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is “Ten Books I Picked Up On A Whim (however you decide to interpret that (bought or read or something else) — I know most people read based on recommendation but we want to know those books you picked up without really hearing about or knowing much about!).” I used to pick up books on a whim constantly, that is to say that I used to browse my library or the bookstore for an hour (or two) and pick up whatever book sounded or looked interesting. Since I’ve become more involved in the book blogging community, I’ve been using a lot of resources (bloggers, reviews, publishers) to decide which books to pick up, so I haven’t really given into whims recently. I really ought to do it more as I’ve found some really wonderful books doing so. Here are ten books I picked up on a whim and ended up really enjoying. Covers are linked to Goodreads.
Which books have you picked up on a whim that have become favorites? Do you often browse your library or bookstore or do you stick to recommendations? Let me know in the comments and be sure leave a link to your own TTT post, so I can visit.
