Top Ten Tuesday: On A Whim

Hey guys! I apologize for missing last week’s TTT. At least I’m doing it this week! Top Ten Tuesday is an amazing meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. You definitely should check them out if you haven’t already 🙂 This week’s topic is:

Ten Books I Picked Up On A Whim (however you decide to interpret that (bought or read or something else) — I know most people read based on recommendation but we want to know those books you picked up without really hearing about or knowing much about!)

I’ll be doing Ten Books I Read On a Whim.

Top Ten Tuesdays


Ten Books I Read On a Whim:

  1. Openly Straight by Bill Konigsberg

As of right now, I haven’t started reading this. I haven’t heard about it and only have read the summary on the inside flap. I’m sure it’ll be good!

2. Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy

This was an amazing book that I had heard little about. If you haven’t read it yet, I definitely recommend you give it a try.

3. Hour of  The Bees by Lindsay Eager

This was another amazing book that I came across. It’s about a girl who has to help her family move her grandpa. Her grandpa has dementia so he sometimes randomly acts out and does strange things. I did a  review on it here if you’re interested.

4. Divergent by Veronica Roth

This is and was when I read it, such a popular book. Some how, I managed not to hear too much about it. I am glad it wasn’t spoiled for me.

5. Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Just like Divergent, I hadn’t heard much about it. I definitely recommend reading books 1 and 2 in this series.

6. Dead End in Norvelt by Jack Gantos

This was a brilliant book.

7. Wonder by R.J. Palacio

8. Return to Sender by Julia Alvarez

This was on a reading list at school. I didn’t know much about it and definitely enjoyed it. You should read it!

9. Survivors The Empty City by Erin Hunter

I know I rave about this series a lot but it’s absolutely amazing! I recommend it to younger readers who love fantasy, adventure, and animals. You have to be able to stand some violence though.

10. Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

This is probably cheating a bit. This book has been recommended to me. I’m reading it right now and I love it so much. I definitely recommend reading it.


That’s a wrap! Have you read any of these books? If you have, what did you think about them? As always, don’t spoil anything. 

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for next week’s Top Ten Tuesday!

    I actually didn’t like Dumplin’ that much – I found some of the ‘messages’ a bit problematic and that it focused way too much on romance. I also didn’t like Bo, haha.

    Everything Everything was a mix for me. Loved the concept, didn’t love the ending (thought it was too easy).
