TTT - Top 10 Books I Picked Up On A Whim

This top 10 weekly meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and can be found HERE.  Each week they focus on lists which cover various topics related to books and reading.  This week we are featuring the top 10 books that were picked up on a whim.

This was the first Huff book and read and while I still need to read the last one in this series, I grabbed it from the library one day because I simply loved the cover.

Another library grab - most of my impulse reads are.

I grabbed this one because it mentioned a crush on David Cassidy and when I was pre-teen, I had a huge crush on his brother, Shawn.  Not a bad read but I recall not really loving it,

Another grab from the "new" shelf at the library.

I couldn't resist the cover or the lion sitting in the backseat.

Couldn't resist the dog on the cover even though I had heard nothing about the book  - so glad I took a chance on this one since I loved it!

Purple is my favorite color so of course I had to read this.

Was sucked in by the shadow of the dog on the cover - nothing more.

I was in the mood for horror when I grabbed this one.  Looking at my Goodreads pages, almost all of my impulse reads have come from the library.  

I read this long before I knew who Libba Bray was and picked it up solely because of the cow carrying the gnome.  It was a wonderful book.

So what have you read on impulse?  Have you read any of these?  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Great list the only one I've heard of though is Going Bovine and that's because a bunch of people were talking about it when I went to YALLfest the year before last and she was there and all! I do admit though the cover is rather interesting.

  2. I haven't read any of these! Going Bivine looks intriguing though.

  3. I love your impulse buys! I'm going to have to get The Patron Saint of Lost Dogs and Going Bovine! Love those covers.

    I love horror and I have not heard of The Birthing House! Must find that one immediately!

    Looks like your whim purchases have worked out for the most part! Great list.

    My Top Ten

  4. Thanks, I just discovered a Tanya Huff book I haven't read!

  5. Going Bovine looks intriguing! I also loved The Patron St of Lost Dogs (no surprise there, right?) and I ALSO had a big crush on Shawn Cassidy. Hysterical because I look at pics of him at that age now, and man... what was I thinking? lol

  6. Man, I need to read more Tanya Huff!
