Helllllllo readers, and welcome to another truly wonderful topic from The Broke and the Bookish. I’ve only recently started writing these posts consistently in the past two months but I adore them. (Consistency is the word for MLBB for 2015.) For me, space is a premium. Renting means that whenever I move somewhere I have to take all of my books with and at the moment they fit rather perfectly in my market bought suitcase and I have no room to put another so most of my recent books that came into my possession are library books. Saying this, they have been pretty great and I cannot wait to share them with you.
1) Sex, Age Location by Melissa Pimentel
When I took myself off to the library a couple of weeks ago, I was supposed to pick up a number of classic books to finally finish my task of reading ten classic books, but I got side-tracked and ended up picking up four romance books. Yep, well done Lizzy. This one I thought was witty, sassy and a really imaginative read that you can see my review of hereeeee.
2) Pear Shaped by Stella Newman
This is another romance book which I have been meaning to read for, oh, so long. Since I read Leftovers by the same author this has been top of my TBR but I just haven’t found the time. I adored this book and thought it was even better than Leftovers. Review will be up tomorrow so if you’re interested to see why I thought it was so good, check back for all my bookish thoughts.
3) Tamed by Emma Chase
I tend to only get three books out from the library at a time because, I seem to always lose them around the house and then get fined *wails.* Instead I keep three in the same place whilst they are being read. However this time I blew caution to the wind and took out four, (pretty daring for the most disorganised book blogger.) but this one really took my fancy. A little smuttier than the others I took out and a lot less complex, but a read I thoroughly enjoyed despite myself.
4) Every single minute by Hugo Hamilton
When picking books from the library I always try and pick something up that’s a little different and this definitely was different from anything I’ve read before. I found it an easy read but it didn’t quite sit with me as a reader which was a shame despite this another to review for you lovely readers.
5) Breaking The Silence by Maria Nieto
As a book blogger I do work with a number of publishers and marketing companies. Publishing Push is one that I come back to time and time again. This is their newest offering to me and I cannot wait to see what it’s like
6) Animal Farm by George Orwell
Mentioned on my last Top Ten Tuesdays books list, Animal Farm will be one of the last two books I will read for my 101 things challenge, to read Ten classic books. I should have finished this challenge months ago but I’ve been putting it off. This is one of those books that as a book blogger you just have to read and I cannot wait to finally do that.
7) The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
This again is one of the final books for my 101 things classic challenge. I had started to watch the movie made of this but I think I really need to read the book so, this is going to get read and I cannot wait!
8) Gerald’s Party by Robert Coover
When I was looking around the library for Animal Farm and The Picture of Dorian Grey, the cover of this caught my eye. Reading the blurb I immediately picked this up. I want to read more classic books and this one is the next to be explored.
9) The Hourglass Factory by Lucy Ribchester
This has been doing the round on so many book blogs that I currently follow thought it was time to add my own thoughts. (Also the cover is b-e-a-utiful)
10) F by Daniel Kehlmann
When I go to the library I rarely take out more than three books but the cover took my fancy. Since looking it up online it looks like a very intriguing book which I will definitely be sharing with you soon I am sure.
So, ten very different books that last came into my possession. What would your list look like?
