Last Ten (Fiction) Books That Came Into My Possession

Top Ten Tuesdays is a weekly feature created at The Broke and The Bookish.

1. Blood Jack: being an account of the curious adventures of Mary "Jacky" Faber, ship's boy by L. A. Meyer: I've wanted to start this series for a really long time now, but I wanted it to finish up before I did. And then the author died, and someone else had to finish the last book. In any event, the series is at a close now, so now is the time.

2. The Diviners by Libba Bray: I'm trying to read this again, despite my deep hatred of the 1920s. (I don't know why, I dislike pretty much everything about the 20's.)

3. Angelfall by Susan Ee: I actually got this after finishing End of Days because I felt like rereading.

4. World After by Susan Ee: Rereading, etc.

5. End of Days by Susan Ee: I finally got around to finishing this series! It had to go back to the library, though...

6. Wildthorn by Jane Eagland: I can't remember why I ended up not reading this one the last time, so I grabbed it on the off chance that I might like it.

7. The Storyspinner by Becky Wallace: I wasn't really planning on reading this until I saw it at the library, and figured, well, why not?

8. The Illusionarium by Heather Dixon: Again, saw it at the library, and grabbed it. My reading habit would be completely unsustainable without libraries.

9. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Adhieh: This FINALLY came it at the library. I really enjoyed it, though I haven't reviewed it (yet).

10. Rook by Susan Cameron: I'm surprised that this is the most recent, actually. It feels like its been on my shelf for a while... I probably ought to return it soon...

  1. Rook is one that I've wanted to check out for a while. It sounds so good!

    1. Rook was really fun. I've found I quite enjoy retellings of/tributes to The Scarlet Pimpernel... I think when I finally read the source material I'll be disappointed by the lack of cross-dressing, though.

  2. I ADORE the Bloody Jack series and am so sad that L.A. Meyer died. I was really curious to see what he would write about after Jacky. At least he left this wonderful series. I haven't finished it yet, but I've loved all the books so far. Jacky's such a fun character.

    Happy TTT!

    1. I'm really looking forward to reading it! Its a pretty long series, especially for YA, and I'm hoping to be in it for the long haul.
