Top Ten Tuesday - Books I am Glad I Didn't Pass Up


I'm sure you can relate...You see a new book releasing...The cover is GORGEOUS...The publishing house is well established and trusted...The storyline (if you are weird and actually READ the back of the cover) sounds intriguing...But you have never read any books by the author. Maybe they have been around a while and you just haven't had the chance to read their books. OR maybe they are a debut author. Regardless of the situation...It can be a gamble when you pick up a new book. How do you decide which books to read and which ones to pass up? I put my own little twist on today's TTT topic which is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Well....Today...I am sharing  TEN books that I took a gamble on. And I am SO glad I did. I honestly don't know what I would have done if I'd never read these books. The friendships that have been established, the conversations, the book love...It may not have happened...

So here are a few books that quite literally changed the course of my life...In perhaps more ways than just one.

  1. I've really enjoyed what I've read by Elizabeth Camden. Also, LOVE Sarah's Through Waters Deep. Still one of my all-time favorite historicals. :)

  3. Interesting. I have not read any of those listed though I have read a few of these authors. You must really love that time in history, as about 6 are similar time periods if I'm not mistaken.

    1. Haha I think it's safe to say I just love Historical Fiction ;) But Victorian and Gilded Age are a couple of my favorites!

  4. These are all new to me, but The House on Foster Hill looks really good!! I'll have to check that one out!

  5. Elizabeth Camden is one of my favorite historical fiction authors. And I can always count on Jen Turano's stories to make me laugh. I don't know anyone else who writes historical rom-coms. The House on Foster Hill was shockingly good and I'm not usually a fan of suspense. Another one that surprised me in a good way is Lorie Langdon's Olivia Twist.

  6. The first book I picked up after my reading hiatus was Short Straw Bride by Karen Witemeyer. Hello improved CBA romance! I was hooked & the rest is history :)
