A Top Ten Tuesday Rewind! So many choices. After viewing the spreadsheet provided by The Broke and the Bookish blog, I noticed that the weekly bookish meme, Top Ten Tuesday started in July in 2010. It really has gone a long way. Six years later, there are hundreds of TTT topics already explored and I’m so happy to be able to revisit the previous topics that I didn’t have the chance to do!
1. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
I really wanted to get this book and as soon I saw the lovely cover of Seraphina in my local bookstore, I immediately got it. However, months later, it’s on my shelf and I still haven’t got around to reading it.
2. Trigger Warning by Nail Gaiman
Being a huge fan of Neil Gaiman, I knew I just had to get this book the moment I saw it and till today, I’m still admiring the cover of the book without actually reading it.
3. Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
Memoirs of a Geisha was really well known and I was really interested in reading it.
4. Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel
I came to know of the book after reading an article about it in the newspaper so naturally, when I saw it in a book sale, I bought it.
5. The Luminaries by Eleanor Carton
I have a thing with getting prize winning books and this one is no different. The Luminaries was actually the winner of the Man-Booker Prize in 2013.
6. Revelation by C.J. Sansom
I bought Revelation because the synopsis was really interesting and it was a historical fiction too so I knew I had to get it.
7. The Maze Runner by James Dashner
It was sold in a box set at an extremely affordable price and the movie was just released so I went ahead and bought The Maze Runner series.
8. Prince of Stories: The Many Worlds of Neil Gaiman by Hank Wagner, Christopher Golden and Stephen R. Bissette
As a fan of Neil Gaiman, I convinced myself that I needed to get this book because it chronicles his history and all of his previous works. I’ll get around to reading it, just as soon as I finish a couple (read: stack) of books.
9. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
I bought it because the entire trilogy was available and that’s the way I like my series: completed unlike a few of the other series I’ve bought and failed to complete.
10. Murder for Christmas
Oh, I’ll be sure to complete this collection of mystery short stories with a Christmas theme before Christmas comes.
