Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
After I went to London and came back with eleven books, I kind of put myself on a book buying ban for the time being. And let me tell you, it’s been hard. If it wasn’t for my bank account protesting vehemently, I would’ve gone on a huge book buying binge last week. I NEED Cress and Crown of Midnight and I also want to read more Rainbow Rowell books and and and…
Yeah. It’s been tough.
So, apart from two ARCs and a gift from a friend, this list of last books that came into my possession still dates back to my trip to London. I don’t know how much longer I will be able to contain myself, but I’m pretty sure I can guarantee a book haul some time this summer…
- The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald
- Summer on the Cold War Planet by Paula Buck
- Chocolat by Joanne Harris
- NW by Zadie Smith
- Timbuktu by Paul Auster
- The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
- Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
- The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë
- The Brontës, A Life in Letters by Juliet Barker
- Us by David Nicholls
And that’s my list! Have you read any of these? Were they any good? Let me know!

The only one of these I’ve read is The Great Gatsby, which I absolutely loved. I’ve always wanted to read something by Zadie Smith- can’t wait to see how you like NW!
That’s also why I picked up NW, because I’ve been wanting to read a Zadie Smith novel for quite some time now! I’m looking forward to reading The Great Gatsby, so I might do that pretty soon. 🙂
The Great Gatsby is one of my all-time favorites! Happy reading! I’ve also heard really good things about NW, so I hope you enjoy that one too!
Thank you! I’ve heard nothing but good things about The Great Gatsby, so I’m looking forward to reading it. Also very curious to read NW! 🙂
I need to get more Jane Austen books. I like PP and I have read Northanger but I didn’t like it as much. Happy readings 🙂
I’ve only read P&P (which I loved) and Mansfield Park (which I didn’t like), so I’m looking forward to reading more. Thank you!
I love Jane Austen and F. Scott Fitzgerald — good picks! I’ve also read Chocolat, but I didn’t like it that much. Unlike the movie, which I love.
Found you via the TTT — good list!
Thank you! I loved Chocolat (both the book(s) and the film), so I’m very glad to finally have it in my possession. 🙂
Hope you enjoy Cress and Crown of Midnight when you get to them.

Thank yooouuu! I can’t wait to FINALLY get my hands on them!
I’ve read THE GREAT GATSBY and SENSE AND SENSIBILITY, both a long time ago. I have THE READERS OF BROKEN WHEEL RECOMMEND and can’t wait to read it.
I’m very much looking forward to reading all of those books! I’m taking The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend with me on holiday next week. 🙂
That’s such an interesting collection of reads! I’ve read a couple of them – The Great Gatsby, Chocolat and Sense and Sensibility – I’m quite intrigued by the book on The Brontes’ letters though. xoxo Louise | Reads and Recipes A literary lifestyle blog
Yes, there’s a lot of different things on there! Of this list I’ve only read Chocolat, but I’m very much looking forward to reading the rest of the books. I was intrigued by the book of letters as well, which is why I picked it up. Have to admit I haven’t looked at it much yet, though. Thanks for your comment! 🙂
