TOP TEN TUESDAY | BOOKS I MOST RECENTLY ACQUIRED


This week's Top Ten Tuesday on The Broke and the Bookish is: Last Ten Books That Came Into My Possession. This includes everything from books purchased to review copies to library books or borrowed books. So, without further ado....


The Rocks - Peter Nichols (from the library)
The Blythes Are Quoted - L.M. Montgomery


Dietland - Sarai Walker
The Last Letter from Your Lover - Jojo Moyes (on sale for super cheap)


Take the Cannoli - Sarah Vowell
Assassination Vacation - Sarah Vowell


Native Son - Richard Wright
Burn This Book - Toni Morrison
The Paris Review Interviews Vol. II - Philip Gourevitch, Ed.

This one was pretty easy since half of it came from my last Stacking the Shelves post! I've started Dietland and am really into it, and I can't wait to get through the rest of the Anne of Green Gables books so I can read this sequel - apparently it's a lot darker than the originals, but illuminating (thanks to @brennacgray's #CanLit149 recommendations - she tweeted 149 books by Canadian authors to celebrate Canada Day. An amazing, awe-inspiring, and TBR-lengthening feat!

    1. I haven't read any Moyes yet, but I started Me Before You and liked it. I honestly just saw the price tag on this and snapped it up!

  2. I read Assassination Vacation by Sarah Vowell a few years ago and really enjoyed it. It is one of those books that made history accessible and memorable.

    1. I've heard such good things! I loved the introduction she wrote in Nick Hornby's Shakespeare Wrote for Money and it had me giggling hysterically! I'm looking forward to finding the time to try some of her longer work.

    1. Right? It's not very long either, so it's a good book for readathons or one-day reads.

  9. Well, I've already ranted about my love for Sarah Vowell, so I'll say that the one on this list that intrigues me the most is The Rocks It's been on my list for a while, but I still haven't pulled the trigger on whether to read it or not. Look forward to your thoughts on all of these!

    1. I'm not sure about The Rocks either - hence the librarying! We'll see if I find time for it. I'm super excited for Vowell, might have to wait a little while, but I like having something to look forward to!
