Last Ten Books In My Hands

Posted July 14, 2015 by Carlisa in Features, Top Ten Tuesday / 10 Comments

Ah, books. They’re wonderful things, my friends. So let’s talk about the last ten books I’ve had in my possession. They’re basically allllll from the library (except a few)…so basically anyone who walks into my room and sees my library pile:


But anyways, let’s see ’em:


  1. Uprooted by Naomi Novik
  2. The Storyspinner by Becky Wallace
  3. The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oaks
  4. Extraordinary Means by Robyn Schneider
  5. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir (currently reading!)
  6. Lola and the Boy Next Door (3/5 stars)
  7. Isla and the Happily Ever After (4/5 *gushing*)
  8. The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey
  9. The Diviners by Libba Bray
  10. (A beautiful Penguin vintage version) of Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

What books have you gotten recently? Let me know!

    I’ve heard great things about “Ember” and those editions of Austen’s books? They’re gorgeous. I am so going to *have* to read the Stephanie Perkins books. I hear such brilliant things said about them.

  • Ember is amazing! I hope you enjoy it!

    Check out my TTT list!

    I am so happy to see that most of the books were hauls from your public library. Yay! I am always glad when folks use their libraries.

  • Ah! I’m so pleased you enjoyed Lola and Isla! They are fantastic books. 🙂

  • I’m nearly finished with Ember, it’s quite good. I’d like to also read Minnow Bly. Your library is well stocked, can’t believe they already have Ember in its circulation!

    Have a great week!

    An Ember and Isla and the Happily Ever After are both things I need to hurry up and get myself. Happy readings 🙂

  • Bloggin’ ’bout Books

    SO many good-looking books here. I haven’t read any of them, but most of them are on my TBR mountain chain somewhere. *Sigh* So many books, so little time …

    Happy TTT!


  • I loved Isla too! You are so lucky to have a library near you that stocks great books!

  • hahaha at the GIF with Ders! My boyfriend and I use that quote ALL the time, especially when I have books everywhere around the apartment. So good.

  • Look at all of those beautiful books! I started Uprooted, but I only got 10 pages in when I remembered that I have a blog tour that is due next week and I have not started the book yet. So, I am rushing to finish that book so I can get back to Uprooted’s unique and fantastical world.

    I am so glad that you loved the rest of the ANNA series. A lot of people complained that the rest of the series was not as good, and even though Anna and Etienne will always be my favorite, I really enjoyed the rest of the books too.

    Have fun with all of these books!
