TTT: Most Recent Additions to My Book Collection

Top Ten Tuesday is featured by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Today’s topic is ‘newest additions to my book collection.’ I’m trying to buy fewer physical books, but I got a couple of books at Target and ordered a few on Amazon so I’m breaking my own rules. What else is new!? 😛


  1. Special Needs by Lada Vukic
I want to be ordinary: Special Needs by Lada Vukić – roughghosts
Ordered on Amazon.com (it wasn’t available on Kindle.)

2. Act Cool by Tobly McSmith

Amazon.com: Act Cool: 9780063038561: McSmith, Tobly: Books
Bought at Target (here’s my review for the author’s previous book, ‘Stay Gold.’)

3. Lie with Me by Philippe Besson

Amazon.com: Lie With Me: A Novel: 9781501197871: Besson, Philippe,  Ringwald, Molly: Books
Bought a copy at Target.

4. Raspberries on the Yangtze by Karen Wallace

Raspberries on the Yangtze by Karen Wallace
Bought on Amazon.com. I started this one earlier today. It’s okay, I guess? It’s really slow-paced.

5. The Midnight Library by Matt Haig

The Midnight Library: A Novel: Haig, Matt: 9780525559474: Amazon.com: Books
Bought at Target, I’ve heard so much about this one and I really enjoyed his book ‘Reasons to Stay Alive’ (review here.)

6. Tribute to Another Dead Rock Star by Randy Powell

Amazon.com: Tribute to Another Dead Rock Star: 9780374479688: Powell,  Randy: Books
Bought on Amazon.com. Somewhat obscure, out-of-print YA novel.

7. Hugging the Rock by Susan Taylor Brown

Hugging the Rock: Brown, Susan Taylor: 9781582462363: Amazon.com: Books
Bought on Amazon.com

8. Winny Has Wings by Janet Lee Carey

Wenny Has Wings: Carey, Janet Lee: 9780689867590: Amazon.com: Books
Bought on Amazon.com. Another book for young readers (like ‘Tribute to Another Dead Rock Star’ that used to be available at my local libraries, but I didn’t get a chance to read.)
FUN FACT: Did you know this was made into an Asian film in 2008? You learn something new every day.

9. The Wasp Eater by William Lychack

  1. Some interesting looking books on this list! I am also on a bit of a book buying ban, but I’m going to allow myself to buy one new book for every 5 physical books that I read. Hopefully it will encourage me to read what is already on the bookshelf instead of constantly adding more!
