It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday! Thanks Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl for creating this meme.
This Week’s Topic:
Books I Bought/Borrowed Because…
My choice: Book Series I Bought On Impulse Without Thinking Twice
- The House Of Night
I stalked this series for a long time before I caved. I think there were four books out when I finally splurged and bought them all. I immediately picked up every single book in the series thereafter the moment it was released.
2. Stalking Jack The Ripper
I found out that my library had all four of these books and immediately placed a hold on them. I wound up buying all of them in audio later. It’s a wonderful series.
3. Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children
Once I saw the preview to the movie for this series, I bought all three books. I got the fourth book when it was released and the fifth book when it was released as well. I have them all in audio and a physical copy of the first four. I need to get a physical copy of the fifth. Funny story, I actually bought the physical copies on Thrift Books and one is a library book. Mom asks me if I need to turn in library books every time she sees it.
4. Vampire Academy
I discovered this series when I was stalking House Of Night. I fell in love with the covers and the blurb. I can’t remember how many were out when I bought them. They were a huge impulse buy for me though. I wanted the entire series yesterday.
The moment I found out who the main character of this spin off series I had to have them all. I know I shouldn’t count this because of Vampire Academy, but I can’t help it.
6. Dorothy Must Die
I saw a video by Epic Reads about this series. I fell in love. At the time, I was subscribed to Scribd (I personally don’t recommend, but I digress). I was so happy to find that they were all there. I jumped at the chance and grabbed them all. Later, I wound up buying physical copies of the series plus the novellas.
7. Lunar Chronicles
I don’t even remember how I discovered these anymore. I just know the moment I saw them I had to have them.
8. Hush, Hush
I found these in a BOGO deal. I was so happy! I’d had my eye on the series for awhile.
I got this series at the same BOGO sale that I got Hush, Hush. I’d never heard of these before but they screamed out at me.
The moment I found out that there were actual books for this, I HAD to have them!!! I believe I watched almost every single episode of Castle. I loved that show!
I know that technically speaking, not all these are the true definition of impulse buys as I was not able to buy them immediately. However, the moment I saw them, I knew I’d own them. My gut screamed out at me that I will love them. I’ve never been wrong listening to that feeling.
Thank you for Reading!
