Ten Books I’ve Acquired Most Recently (Top Ten Tuesday)

July 14, 2015 Top Ten Tuesday 10

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Last Ten Books That Came Into My Possession (bought, library, review copies).


This topic includes ARCs and library books as well as purchases, but I’ve broken them out by category. The list is longer than 10 books because I got several books on some days – but they are all from (gulp) the past 8 days. Like, since last Monday (July 6.) Eeep.


Added to the Hoard (purchased as ebooks)

Dorothy Gilman_Mrs. Pollifax and the Hong Kong Buddha


ARCs (print and ebook)



Library books

Carola Dunn_Superflous Women
Nancy Atherton_Aunt Dimity & the Summer King
Maggie Sefton_Purl Up and Die


I was on hold for the three library books, but didn’t think they’d come in at once. And I got two unsolicited ARCs in the mail, plus had four of my NetGalley requests approved – one on one day, and three on the next. Yikes! I’m going to be really busy trying to read all of these!

Which books have come into your possession recently?

      Don’t they just! Arrive in clusters, that is. [shakes head] I keep digging myself the same hole of requesting too many books. (But they all look so gooooooood!)

    I really wanted to like the Maggie Sefton knitting mysteries, but I just couldn’t get into the first one. Too bad, since “Fort Connor, Colorado” is obviously based on the town where I went to college, Fort Collins, Colorado!

      My stepmother is from Fort Collins, too. She loves the books. But I can understand not liking them, too. I originally started reading them for the knitting aspect, but as I said, at this point it’s just sort of sentimental.

    We have a lot of eARCs in common and I’m really excited about all of those. I’ve been really wanting to reread Dorothy Gilman lately. I loved her books but I haven’t read them in probably close to 20 years and I’m not 100% sure I’ve ever read all the Mrs. Pollifax books. One day there will be time to get everything read right?

      “One day there will be time to get everything read right?” Not if they keeping writing more books! I’m beginning to pin my hopes on a Beast-style library in heaven… 🙂 Oh, and I too would love to revisit the Mrs. Pollifax books, though it’s only about 4 years since my last re-read.
