Top Ten Tuesday: The Last Ten Books That Came Into My Possession

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new prompt is provided and book bloggers, like me, share their top ten lists. 

This week's prompt-
Last Ten Books That Have Come Into My Possession

Those of you who follow me know that I have been a little up and down with my book reviewing these past 6 months, however, I have jumped back into the game and am very excited about the recent books I have acquired (mainly from thrift stores- the best kind). Here are the last ten books that have come into my possession: 

Have you read any of these? Some I hadn't even heard of until I found them so I'm really excited to get started on them all! Be sure to share your TTT link in the comments :)

  1. The Girl on the Train has been in my basket numerous times but I have a feeling I'll be late to the party for that book. It's hype is getting to me.

    Thanks for stopping My Top Ten List earlier. :)

    1. Its not it's ... I hate not being able to edit my comment. :(

    2. I didn't want to jump on the bandwagon for that one because EVERYONE was reading it... but I have to say, there's a reason it's all anyone can talk about :) my review of it will be up in the next couple weeks!

  2. The Girl on the Train was amazing!! I read and reviewed it as an ARC and was blown away :)

    I haven't read anything by Jojo Moyes, have you? I have Me Before You to be read this month!

    Happy reading♥

    1. I am mad it took me so long to pick up! Ugh, I simply love Jojo Moyes. The only other book I read by her was actually Me Before You and it was amazing! You will love it. Thanks for stoping by!

  3. Hi! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog at Reading In The Tardis. I had to stop by and say hello. I also loved your list. I just finished The Girl on the Train a few months ago and LOVED it. I hope you will enjoy it too. I love the sound of In the Time of Butterflies and Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. All the books look great, but those really stood out to me. Let's be Twitter buddies. :)

    1. I am so happy I picked up The Girl on the Train. Sometimes I worry when books are so talked about that I won't feel the same, but I definitely enjoyed it! Now I want to read more thrillers!

Book Review: Before We Were Yours

My Rating: 5
It has been about a month since I finished this book and it honestly took me that long to recover enough in order to write a review.
Before We Were Yours is one of the best books I have ever read, and if you know me at all, you would realize I don’t toss that statement around lightly. By saying that, however, in no way am I saying that this is a happy read, because it is also one of the most heartbreakingly beautiful books I have ever read in my life, as well.
Based on one of America’s most notorious real-life scandals (although the main characters are fictional), the story is that of Georgia Tann, director of a Memphis-based adoption organization, who would kidnap poor children and then sell them to wealthy families all over the country from the 1920s through the 1950s.
Twelve-year-old Rill Foss and her four siblings are the victims of this type of crime, and half of the book is their journey and fight to get back home. The other half is that of present-day Avery, a prose…

Book Review: Pretty Girls

My Rating: 4
Have you ever read a book that was so dark and twisted that you literally felt like you lost a piece of your innocence after finishing it? Yeah, that’s what I felt as I was reading Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter.
Needless to say, this book threw me for quite the loop. I was expecting a story about missing girls (which I got), what I wasn’t expecting, however, was an extremely graphic tale of violence and gore full of shocking scenarios and senseless acts that would leave me slightly traumatized and lying awake at night thinking about (which is what I also got).
I’m not trying to be dramatic with this review, but honestly, this book will seriously mess you up. It is not at all for the faint of heart and it will exhaust you every time you finish a chapter. Still with me? Don’t say I didn’t warn you…
Pretty Girls was a crazy psychological thriller that continued to throw plot twists and mysteries at me until I didn’t think I could handle it anymore, then it took a sharp left…

Book Review: The Good Widow

My Rating: 4
I finished this book in under two days. TWO DAYS. Given the fact that I have a toddler now, that's saying something.

The Good Widow is about Jacks, a woman who finds out that her husband has died in a tragic car accident when on his business trip to Kansas. Or so she thought. Turns out he died in Hawaii… with another woman.

Now Jacks is left with not only the devastating blow that her husband was lying to her about his whereabouts, but also the fact that he was having an affair, as well. She is trying to pick up the pieces of her life when the other woman’s fiancé arrives at her door, left with the same questions Jacks has about the mystery surrounding their deaths. Together, they will try to find out the truth about who their significant others really were.

The book had a lot of twists and turns I never saw coming. I liked how it switched perspectives and timelines of before/after the accident, as I felt this made the pace go a lot faster. The feelings the characters had…
