Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is ten books I picked up on a whim. So these are the books I wasn’t recommended but just picked up randomly.
There are a few books in here that I didn’t really enjoy but there are also books in here that I did enjoy and would recommend if you’re into that genre. I added links to all the goodreads pages, so if you’re interested you can check out the book.
Armada by Ernest Cline. I have of course heard a lot of things about Cline’s other book Ready Player One, however, I hadn’t really heard of this book before. When I saw it in the bookstore I decided to pick it up just because, I really ended up enjoying the story and the writing. I would definitely recommend this book if you enjoyed Ready Player One.
The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han. I read this book a few years ago before I was really in the book community. I picked it up because I was going on vacation and needed a light book to take with me. I really enjoyed this book and ended up buying the rest of the series when I got home. If you’re interested in a fun summer contemporary that does have some substance then I would recommend this series.
Kissing Annabel by Steven Herrick. I bought this book simply because it had my name on it. It is a verse novel about a relationship between Jack and a girl named Annabel. It was a quick read and they were pretty cute poems but nothing special.
Wake by Amanda Hocking. This book I haven’t read yet. I did, however, pick it up on a whim. I needed a few more dollars to get free shipping so I ordered this book because it was really cheap. I will probably be getting to it soon, though.
This is Where it Ends by Marieke Nijkamp. This books I have been seeing a lot around booktube the past few weeks. I however, bought it a while back simply because it was written by a Dutch author. I didn’t really enjoy the book because of the way it handled a very heavy subject, a school shooting, poorly. I have a full review on why I didn’t enjoy this book here.
UnEnchanted by Chanda Hahn. I picked up this book because it was a free e-book. However, I didn’t really enjoy it. There were a lot of spelling and grammatical mistakes throughout the book. I also thought the story was boring and didn’t have much substance.The Raft by S.A. Bodeen. This was a book I saw lying around my house, at the time I was feeling sick so I wanted something light to read so I picked it up without really knowing anything about it. I can’t say I really enjoyed it because I thought the main character was very annoying, but it was an okay read for how I was feeling.

I could only find seven books that I picked up on a whim, all of my other books I bought for a reason. Let me know if you picked any of these up on a whim or what books you picked up on a whim!
