Top Ten Tuesday #2: Last Ten Books That Came Into My Possession

booksTop Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, it was created because of their love of lists and all things bookish. There are different lists every week. It has literally been months since my last Top Ten Tuesday. I’ll try to do this every Tuesday but – honestly – don’t hold your breath.


This wonderful Tuesday (I’m on school break!) the topic is Last Ten Books That Came Into My Possession (bought, library, review copies). I haven’t bought many books recently but I have received quite a few for review purposes.

If you click the covers, you’ll be sent to their respective goodreads pages.

Without further ado I present to you…

  • The Single Game by Amanda Black

25730850

I got an ARC of this from the author just a few hours ago. It’s a new adult love story about first love and a whole lot of other firsts. 😉


  • Anya and the Shy Guy by Suze Winegardner

25758991

I got this ARC from Entangled Teen Publishing to review. This is the fourth book in the Backstage Pass series; all the books in this series can be read as standalones. I read the second book a while back and it was fun, so I’m looking forward to reading about the quiet one in the band.


  • The Fixer by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

22929578

I have this on my Kindle, I really want a physical copy of this, though. Anyways, this should be good considering how I loved every Jennifer Lynn Barnes book I read. This one has teen drama, secrets, love triangles, and politics. Sounds like an interesting mix.


  • Supervision by Alison Stine

23945188

Got this from NetGalley, not an ARC but the blurb was intriguing so I thought I’d give it a shot.

A lonely New York teen is thrown into small-town life when she’s sent to live with her grandmother in Pennsylvania; she finds solace in the friends she makes, but something is wrong: her friends are dead, and she might be too.


  • Wait for You by J. Lynn

18224475

I got this book (paperback) at half price at BookXcess a few weeks ago (I think) and hopped right on it when I got home (because it is Jennifer L. Armentrout, people). I must say I wasn’t disappointed, all my expectations were met. Cliches, check; swoon worthy guy, check; cute love story, check. Honestly, it’s your typical NA book but there are times when you need a little cheesiness in your life; times like those, you grab this book.


  • Solitaire by Alice Oseman

20618110

I saw this book at BookXcess too and it struck me that it was extremely familiar, like I had definitely seen it somewhere (I still have no idea where, though). My mom was getting some stuff done so I had time to read it at the bookstore and it had me hooked. But… for some reason I stopped reading it. I am a hundred percent sure it has nothing to do with the book because I really enjoyed it; not your typical YA read. I’m really hoping to get back in the mood for this book soon.


  • Significance by Shelly Crane

11731861

I got this review copy off NetGalley too… It has got this whole soulmate concept going on and it’s a TV show in the making. You can check out further details here.


  • Eleven Weeks by Lauren K. McKellar

24704404

Another review copy from the author.


  • The Memory Game by Sharon Sant

18741309

This is a book with… wait for it.. ghosts! I was actually on the look out for a non-scary ghost book when I came across this on NetGalley which made being approved 10 times better. If you want to know, this book is about David, a teenager who dies at the age of fifteen but can’t seem to move on. The only person who can see him is Bethany, the girl he spent his living days bullying. Just thinking about it makes me feel like dashing to my tab and devouring it.


  • Pisces by Rachel Medhurst

25223914

Another soulmate book. Yay!!

Do I even need to tell you where and how I got this? I think not…


So that’s it for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday. Looking back at my list of books it seems like I’ve been very dependent on NetGalley for my latest possessions (what would I do without NetGalley?). Let me know in the comments if any of the books above catches your eye or perhaps you have read them? Also, I would love to check out your Top Ten Tuesday so be sure to leave a link. Have a bookish day and hugs! ❤

      I already read Wait for You and you just HAVE to read it, Analee! It is a book of cliches and cheesiness but it is so cute that you might be able to overlook some of its flaws. If you don’t mind a typical NA read then I say go for it! I’m reading Anya and the Shy Guy right now and I am definitely enjoying it! I know you recently got Mia and the Bad Boy, I hope you like it (and Ryder) 😉
      Right back at you! ❤

      Yes, I checked out your review earlier; I’m sorry you didn’t really enjoy it. 😦
      I really want to read The Memory Game but I’m reading another book right now and I have the read along starting soon… *sigh*
      Let me know what you thought of The Memory Game once you’ve read it. 🙂

      The blurb for Supervision is so intriguing! Wait for You is seriously too cute! You’re gonna love the main guy, Cam! You’ll read, swoon, faint and wake up again just to read more!
      Can’t wait for you to read them! 🙂

        And what about Anya and the Shy Guy? Did you read that yet? Analee posted about it on her blog, and now I want to read that one as well! Judging from the excerpt, it’s gonna be awesome! 😀
        Ugh, SO many books, SO little time. Just WHY??

          I’m currently reading Anya and the Shy Guy and it’s another cute book! I am so satisfied reading these cutesy books! You should totally read it! 😀
          Did you check out that giveaway? Insane!!
          That question, Bhramori. That question just sums up my feelings 99.9 % of the time. Let me add another one: SO little money.

            That’s good, because right now I’m totally in the mood for light cutesy reading! I’m so tired of dark reads… sigh. And every time I say that, I just go and read another one. I am so weird. :/
            But I really should read something light for a while… I have a feeling my nerves might collapse if I make myself read any more dark stuff 😦
            Yes, couldn’t we just have a free bookstore, one within which time reaches a stop, and we could own a book at just one snap of our fingers? Problems settled!
            Sigh. Wishful thinking is the awesomest thing in this world, I swear.

              It’s one of those days isn’t it? Just cuddle in bed with a light, fun read. You could try some Paranormal books that are light, if you want. Here are a few:
              Dark Guardian series by Rachel Hawthorne
              Drake Chronicles by Alyxandra Harvey
              Finding Sky series by Joss Stirling
              Those books are fluffy (totally predictable) but with a certain bite to it. You could also try The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, it’s a YA suspense/thriller but it is actually quite light and easy to read.
              I’m sorry you’re feeling that way, hope things get better for you. 🙂
              Yes! The best magic power I could have is the ability to conjure books from thin air. That would be PERFECT.
              And Bhramor? You’re really not that weird. I’m here if you need someone to talk to. 🙂

      I hope I can get to it soon!
      Tell me about it! It was creepy with some suspense but oddly light at the same time. I loved it! ❤
      I still haven't continued Solitaire, not because I didn't enjoy it; I did, but I was busy reading other books, I guess. I will get back to it soon, that is for sure. Try it if you want something thought-provoking and unflinchingly honest (cynical at times). I'll let you know exactly what I think of it when I'm done. 🙂
      Oh, I'm not sure if you're into cutesy books but if you are then you should give Anya and the Shy Guy a shot. It is a fluffy read with a boy band and funny, interesting characters! Had me fangirling the entire time! 😀

        I don’t like reading totally honest books that reflect so much of the flaws in the world. Like I read to enjoy myself, I want some unreal. Am I making sense? :)) YES I LOVE CUTESY BOOKS! My favorite has to be To All The Boy’s I’ve Loved Before and Anna and the Frenchkiss! Have you read them??? Thanks for the rec! Definitely be checking that out!!!

          You make perfect sense! I get where you’re coming from. Some books are really depressing and they kind of dampen your mood, especially on a bad day. I usually go for less depressing ones, like I don’t need extra problems right now (I already now how flawed the world is, why push it?). Like, John Green’s TFIOS is good and all but it’s not my go-to read because it’s saddening and I like my go-to reads fluffy. Now, am I making sense? 🙂
          I haven’t read To All the Boys I’ve Loved, I take it it’s super good? Oh yes Anna and the French Kiss! Etienne St. Claire!! *squeals*
          I recently wrote a review of it, you can check it out if you want. 🙂

            Yes, I don’t like rereading books that will break my heart AGAIN. I feel very masochistic. Btw, did you like the TFIOS film? Ansel is love!!! YES, YES A BAJILLION TIMES YES. You have to read it. This is one of those “fluffy” reads. Do get back to me as soon as you finish reading it! WE MUST FANGIRL. You did?! Must check it out!!! Have you read her other books??? 🙂

              I loved the movie! Haha yes Ansel and Shai owned it!
              That good?? I must read it soon, then! Oh yes, any offer to fangirl is an offer I’ll accept! 😀
              I meant a review of Anya and the Shy Guy,not Anna and the French. Just in case you were confused, ’cause my previous comment was pretty confusing. Nope, I haven’t read her other books; are they as good as Anna? 🙂

                Yeah, I got confused lol but even better cause I haven’t read the book, so I’ll be checking that review out! They’re good but not as good as Anna. Anna is still my favorite. Nothing compares to Etienne but Josh is cutting it close! 🙂
