The topic of this Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is The Last Ten Books That Came Into My Possession (bought, library, review copies)
2. Paula Hawkins- The Girl On the Train (library) [oh my gosh, finally, it took six months to get through the holds list on this book!]
3. Sarah MacLean- Nine Rules To Break When Romancing a Rake (bought, ebook)
4. Karen Abbott- Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy: Four Women Undercover in the Civil War (bought, ebook)
5. Nele Neuhaus- The Ice Queen (library)
6. Caitlin Doughty- Smoke Gets In Your Eyes & Other Lessons From the Crematory (library)
7. Terry Pratchett- Unseen Academicals (bought)
8. Haruki Murakami- Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage (bought)
9. Sally Beauman- The Visitors (library)
10. Lauren Owen- The Quick (library)
So that’s a fairly good mix of library-first, books, I think. Some of these I would have actually purchased for the library, but I feel a bit guilt seeing how small the budgets are and not knowing if I would be the only one to read them or not…so the ones that are not ebooks may end up as donations at some point.
And hopefully by the end of today I will have my hands on…Go Set a Watchman! I literally never preorder books for budgeting reasons (I know it’s generally great for authors, but I can’t spend real money on theoretical books.) But I caved. Because I have to have this book and see what it’s all about.
