Top Ten Tuesday: Recent Acquisitions

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and it's a way to share what you're loving in list form. The topic changes every week, so there is always something new to discover!
This week's topic is:  Top Ten Books That Have Recently Come Into My Possession.  This can be in any form but, as luck would have it, I recently purchased a bunch of books from the local library.  Every 4th of July weekend, the library has a Friends of the Library book sale and it is a real treat!  I managed to walk away with twelve new books for 5 bucks.  Score! 

Here's What I Got


Boy in the Water by Stephen Dobyns

The Living by Annie Dillard

 
A Week in Winter by Maeve Binchy

Quentins by Maeve Binchy
 
Welcome to Temptation by Jennifer Cruise


Red Leaves by Paullina Simons

The Lake of Dead Languages by Carol Goodman

Goodbye, Columbus by Philip Roth

Hot damn...great scores!!!

I also went on a Kindle spree and downloaded 12 books in three days...the free ones because I'm too cheap to actually purchase a book that I can't physically possess...haha.

What new books have you recently acquired?

Happy reading!

  1. Oh, The Lake of Dead Languages. I forgot about that book. I read it a long time ago. I think it was really good. I look forward to your review to refresh my memory. :)

    1. Awesome! I have no idea when I'll get to it. I'm currently working on a three-month reading challenge and I've already got my books picked out through September! Hopefully soon, though :)

  2. Oooh I haven't heard of these before. Some look really good. I love it when you can score big and walk away with a ton of books for next to nothing.

    1. I hadn't heard about a lot of them either, but they all sounded pretty good when I was perusing the shelves. Thanks for visiting, Melissa!

  3. I'm sure I've got a copy of The Boy in the Water buried somewhere in my TBR Pile!
