Welcome back to Top 10 Tuesday 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 decided to focus on books I bought on a whim. I have read some of them and others I haven’t gotten to yet. But all of them just spoke to me as I passed them on the bookstore shelves. Enjoy!
Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie // I found a darling copy of this book on the Barnes and Noble clearance shelf–win! We recently read it and my review can be found here.
1776 by David McCullough // I keep hearing about this book (and this author). But I still haven’t read it. At least now I own it!
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green // This was a spontaneous buy at Costco. I had seen the movie but hadn’t thought about reading the book. Definitely worth owning!
Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne // I found this at a darling bookstore in my hometown. It’s on my Classics Club list too!
The Hemingway Book Club of Kosovo by Paula Huntley // I had a good friend in college from Kosovo so this title jumped out at me when I saw it at a local bookstore. I still haven’t read it but hope to one day!
Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt // This book is so depressing. But also so moving. I bought this on a whim when I saw it on a discounted shelf.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte // Yes, I had already read this book. Yes, I own several copies. But I had to buy the beautiful early 1900s edition I found in Europe last time I visited! 🙂
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens // Again, yes I own this book. But I haven’t ever finished it! It’s one that I am determined to read in the coming year. This edition was in a small bookstore in York, England. And I had to buy it 🙂
What books have you bought on a whim lately?
