Last Ten Books That Came Into My Possession

toptentuesday

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…

  1. 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. 🙂

  2. 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!

    • 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! 🙂
