Books I Picked Up On A Whim|Top Ten Tuesday

Hosted by the lovelies over at The Broke and the Bookish! I love their amazing ideas and seeing how many people participate each week!

Today's Top Ten is:

Most, if not all, of these books I purchased either because a) the were very cheap or b) the covers drew me in. In other words, this top ten is my regret list.

What have you bought (regretted buying) recently?

  1. I looooooved Sea of Shadows! She's my favourite author though so I'm a little biased. I'm reading Forest of Ruin right now! :)
    Great list!

    My TTT

  2. Never heard of any of these before, but the cover of Beyonders looks amazing. Any particular reasons why you disliked it?

    1. I think I wasn't expecting it to be as middle-grade as it really was. At the time, I was looking for a quick, action-packed adventure with very little romance.

  3. Perfect Ruins has such a beautiful cover! Great list!

    Riv @ Forever Obsession

  4. I've heard of a few of these, haven't picked up any of them yet! A couple do look like they'd be really enjoyable. Have to look in to them!

    My TTT

  5. I can see a lot of these being impulse buys because they have such great covers. Perfect Ruins and Icons would both get my attention based on the cover, and probably Sea of Shadows too. and Erasing Time sounds like time travel, and that will sometimes be enough to get me to read a book. :)

  6. I've read a couple things by Avi. There's a short story in our literature book at school by him, too. I've liked his stuff.
