Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Picked Up On A Whim

Ten Books I Picked Up On A Whim
(thanks a bunch to the covers for being pretty)


01. A Magic Dark & Bright by Jenny Adams Perinovic - scrolled through Amazon and I found one of my favorite reads of the year. It's about a girl who keeps seeing the Woman in White, a creepy house next door, mysterious deaths and lots of magic. I have a review of this here.

02. The Other Side Of Gravity by Shelly Crane - it's all about the gravity~ it also looked pretty at the bookstore. Sadly, I didn't enjoy it much and it was kind of... missing the plot (idk how to properly explain it). BUT--I do want to read the second book for some reason. Still, give it a try if you want :)

03. Fall From Love by Heather London - a love story that's complicated all because of a tragic incident. Never heard of this author and book but thanks to Tumblr I stumbled on a New Adult stand-alone favorite.

04. The Love That Split the World by Emily Henry - went to GR's YA new releases I got this: a girl starts seeing different things and she met this boy.. that's all I got from the summary. I've had this in my TBR for a while now and I did start this but I have it on-hold since I kinda lost the excitement to read this one.

05. Starflight by Melissa Landers - got too deep in some YA list and I stumbled to this. Sci-Fi goodness...and to think I'm not really into that genre. I just finished reading this and it's also one of the books I enjoyed this year.. and I never knew the author was also the author of Alienated (haven't read that).


01. Vassa In the Night by Sarah Porter - got this from Readers Also Enjoyed section and the protagonist here is sent on a suicide mission by her stepsister but she's got this talking doll from her dead mom as her good luck charm. Also, "Inspired by the Russian folktale Vassilissa the Beautiful" so it's a retelling and I love retellings.

02. I Woke Up Dead at the Mall by Judy Sheehan - the title pretty much said it which had my interest in the first place THEN the summary. I was viewing a fantasy book and I kept clicking the books in the Readers Also Enjoyed section (and the books under that and so on and forth) until I got deep... to this.

03. Will You Won't You Want Me by Nora Zelevansky - same with #2, the title caught my attention and again, from the Readers Also Enjoyed section. The summary's a lot to take in but I find myself wanting to read it.

04. Dreaming Of Antigone by Robin Bridges - The pretty and starry cover won me when I was scrolling through Amazon. And twin sisters, one died and the other who lived is blaming the boyfriend of her dead sister. That's all I got from this YA contemporary but I want to give it a try even though this kind of trope isn't a first for me.

05. The Way I Used To Be by Amber Smith - saw this at the bookstore's New Releases shelf and it's about high school student who is also a rape victim. The summary in GR was short but I feel like this is going to be an emotional one for me.
