Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Recently Acquired Books

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. This weeks topic is top ten books you have acquired recently. To find out more about any of the books listed, just click the cover to be taken to the books Goodreads page. 

1. The Winners Curse by Marie Rutkoski
Last week I featured The Winners Curse on Top Ten Tuesday as I hadn't read it yet. Now I have, and it's beautiful, exciting, and I am completely in love with the world and characters. I've wanted to pick it up for a long time, but I took the plunge a few days ago because Marie Rutkoski is going to be at YALC, and I'm so excited!

2. The Winners Crime by Marie Rutkoski
This is the book currently on my nightstand, I'm around a hundred pages in and it's amazing. I bought this book at the same time as the first, and I am so glad I did!

3. The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare
I've wanted this for a while, but since my other books are in paperback I had to wait for The Bane Chronicles to be released in paperback also. I can't wait to read it!

4. The Bones of You by Debbie Howells
This book was sent to me for review from Panmacmillan, and the cover is absolutely gorgeous. It looks like a really exciting read, and I'm very, very excited to pick this book up.

5. Lover Eternal by J.R Ward
I picked this book up at my local charity shop for 50p along with some others in the series. I read the first book and really enjoyed it, so when I spotted these at a bargain price I picked them up in a flash. 

6. All I Know Now by Carrie Hope Fletcher
I'm a huge fan of Carrie's youtube channel, I think she has such a lovely personality and she's a fantastic role model for young girls. I know a girl who absolutely adores Carrie, and she's approaching her teen years so I picked this up to get it signed for her next week at YALC. 

7. City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare
I know what you're thinking - I've read every TMI book in existence, and you're right. But my cousin has recently got into The Mortal Instruments and he's loving City of Bones so I picked this one up when I saw it in a charity shop for 50p. Anything to get more Shadowhunters in the fandom!

8. Tithe by Holly Black
This book was given to me by a friend who knows how much I adore anything related to Fae or Fairy Tales. She didn't enjoy it personally, but we have different book tastes so it will be interesting to see what I think about it.

9. The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen
This book was sent to me for review from Penguin Random House/Transworld Publishers and it arrived wrapped up in ribbon with the prettiest tag, it was lovely. I've read it now, and those who are fans of the first book, The Queen of the Tearling will love this instalment.

10. A Night In With Audrey Hepburn by Lucy Holliday
I won this book in a giveaway courtest of W6 Book Cafe, along with two tickets to a screening of Breakfast at Tiffanys with a live orchestra. I'm such a huge Audrey Hepburn fan, so I was delighted to win this prize. 

That's my top ten books I've acquired, tell me about your most recent additions in the comments down below!

    1. It's really wonderful, I'm not generally a third person reader but it's just got some of the most beautiful sentences, the kind where you read them over and over. And Kestrel is tough but not your typical kind of tough and I really love that. Thank you so much! x

  3. I've been debating The Winner's Curse series for a while now, but just haven't been able to commit! I won a copy of The Bane Chronicles in hardback, and the rest of my series are in paperback too - that one doesn't annoy me too much, because it's kind of separate to the series, but I won my copy of City of Heavenly Fire and it's a hardback too. I spotted the paperback in The Works for £1.99 the other day and picked it up so my whole series matches. But I don't really want to get rid of the hardcover as it was a gift in a way. And they're so pretty in hardcover. Sigh.

    1. Wow, £1.99?! Bargain! Yeh I know what you mean, you feel like you have to (and want to) keep it because you won it. I do love hardbacks, they're so so pretty and I'm meeting Cassandra Clare at YALC at the weekend, and my books are paperbacks so I'm happy to be getting some signed but a little bit of me is thinking 'wouldnt it be lovely to get hardbacks signed?!' x
