May 17: Ten Books I Picked Up On A Whim 

A lot of these books are going to be from before I started blogging or when I first started. I haven't picked up a book on a whim in quite a while lol!

1. WICKED GAME by Jeri Smith-Ready. I found this at a used bookstore many years ago and loved the synopsis. It was a good thing too because I fell in love with this series!

2. THE PRINCESS IN THE OPAL MASK by Jenny Lundquist. I hadn't heard much about this one and I'm really glad I decided to read this awesome high fantasy!

3. INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE by Anne Rice. I was 15 and at a friends house who had this on their books shelf. I grabbed it and didn't put it down until I was finished.

4. THE CADET OF TILDOR by Alex Lidell. Another high fantasy that there was zero buzz for but there should have been! This book was fantastic!

5. POISON PRINCESS by Kresley Cole. When I got this ARC there was no buzz for it. I got it really early. And I'll admit I hated the first 13 chapters but ended up loving the book and am obsessed with this series!

6. THE GATHERING STORM by Robin Bridges. This was purely an impulse by I love fantasy and books about Imperial Russia so I knew I had to have this and I loved it!

7. ANATHEMA by K.A. Tucker. I had never heard of this book but I loved the cover and the description. I ended up loving it!

8. WICKED LOVELY by Melissa Marr. This was another cover love buy and I loved the series.

9. DARK LOVER by J.R. Ward. I was an a huge paranormal romance phase when I grabbed this and it did not disappoint.

10. THE HUNGER GAMES by Suzanne Collins. Yes lol all you want but I had never heard of this series when I got the first book! I hadn't been reading YA for long and had been reading all paranormal. I grabbed this at Borders (sobs I miss Borders) wanting to try something different. And thank goodness I did.




So what about you? What are some of your go to websites? And check back next week for my Ten Books I Feel Differently About After Time Has Passed!

  1. I still cry about BORDERS closing, too. I think back to Hunger Games and think I bought it on a sort of whim, too. I don't think it started off super popular in the beginning. It built up steam.

  2. I'm often intrigued by covers. They pull me in all the time! Great list. :-)

  3. I have Poison Princess from a long time ago, but still haven't gotten around to reading it. When I do, I will keep in mind to stay until after 13 chapters. :P

    My TTT.

  4. I agree with your choice of the Hunger Games. I read it way before it was popular too. It was just there so I picked it up. I really want to read Poison Princess!

    My TTT this week
