10 Books I Picked Up on a Whim | Top 10 Tuesday [#32]


Hey guys!

Welcome back to another Top 10 Tuesday weekly fun on my blog! Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. If you want to join in the fun, hop on over to their blog to see what it’s all about!

This week’s topic is Top 10 Books I Picked Up on a Whim!

Most of the time that I frequent at the bookstore is spent looking for new books. And although I love picking up books that get recommended to me, I also tend to buy books just for pretty covers and nothing else. So today I thought I would show you 10 books that I picked up just because the cover appealed to me, not because I knew what it was about.

The Alphabet Book Tag | Books at Dawn


Hey guys!

I was tagged by Sara from Freadom Library to do The Alphabet Book Tag! Thanks for the tag Sara. And if you haven’t checked out her blog, please do me a favor and do that now! One of my favorite book bloggers!

The Rules:

Pick a book that is on your shelf or one that you have read in the past and fill out each letter of the Alphabet. The idea is to use books that you have either read or that are on your TBR list.

The books that are underlined are books that I have read and the rest are books that are on my TBR. I tried to pick books that I love and enjoyed that I haven’t talked about much on my blog or TBR books that I am dying to pick up soon.

SO let’s get started!
