#TopTenTuesday: Ten Recently Acquired Books


Thanks to the Broke and the Bookish for hosting.


These are in no particular order, unless you count how I could remember them... Ha! This week's been super busy and I'm gearing up for the Percy Jackson party on Thursday. I cannot wait to show off what I have planned.

Also, I would recommend every single one of these books and their titles are links that take you to the Goodreads page so you can read their synopsis and possibly order them. Yeah? Help an author out this week if you can. 

#1 --> Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway



#2 --> Jackaby by William Ritter



#3 --> Mechanica by Betsy Cornwell 







#5, #6, #7 --> Something Strange and Deadly Trilogy by Susan Dennard



#8 --> The Book of Lost Things (Mister Max #1) by Cynthia Voigt



#9 --> Trixter by Alethea Kontis



#10 --> Locked by Eva Morgan

    1. I've read Jackaby already and loved it. The mystery is a bit predictable but it's the characters you truly like the best and read on for. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Reading.

  5. I absolutely loved Emmy & Oliver, such a good book, and definitely one of my favourites of the year! I didn't get on so well with Jackaby which was a shame, but I really hope you enjoy it!

    1. Isn't it just the sweetest book?! Emmy & Oliver has been on my want list for awhile so I was pleased to find it in a local independent store. Jackaby has a bit too much predictability in its mystery so that if you're there for that, it isn't as appealing. However, the characters were precious and the reason I read on. This copy I bought is for my daughter who loved it just as much as I did. Thanks for stopping by.

  6. I have never heard of Emmy & Oliver until I checked out the link you posted (thanks for that!) and am really excited to read it now. Love being introduced to books I wouldn't have found on my own...

    Here is mine this week :) http://busybrunettesbookshelf.blogspot.com/2015/07/top-ten-tuesday-last-ten-books-that.html

    1. Locked is a Sherlock Holmes pastiche, and I cannot resist books featuring him. Emmy & Oliver is so sweet. Hope you get to read them soon.

  11. Jealous of your PJO boxed set... I really, really want those covers but I can't make myself re-buy the whole series. Maybe someday I'll get around to it! Happy reading :)

    1. Oh good. That's a series we haven't read yet, but I bought them for my daughter because Susan Dennard is amazing. Mechanica looks brilliant doesn't it?

  13. Great list. I’ve read some of the Percy Jackson books, but I don’t think I’ve read any of those. I’ve really liked the ones that I have read.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. Those Percy Jackson covers are reissues of the original five. So if you've read any of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians, you've read those, just not with those covers.

  14. Mechanica is one I'm waiting for :-)
