Hello, and welcome to my first ever installment of Top Ten Tuesday! I've been following it on other people's blogs for quite a while, but I thought it was about time I hopped on this bandwagon and had a go at it myself.
1) 'Broadchurch' by Erin Kelly
If you haven't heard of 'Broadchurch', where have you been? It's a massively popular drama series, featuring Olivia Colman and David Tennant. I haven't had a chance to watch it yet, but when I saw the novel adaptation in The Works in their 3 for £5 section, I snapped it up.
2) 'The Killing Club' by Paul Finch
This book was also in the 3 for £5 at The Works, and as I bought a Paul Finch novel when I was down in Weymouth, I thought it would be worth buying another of his books.
3) 'Half-Blood' by Jennifer L. Armentrout
I've only ever read one book by Jennifer L. Armentrout, and I found that one utterly disappointing. I've heard much better things about the Lux series and the Covenant series, so I'm hoping this one will be a bit of a better book. This was the third of the 3 for £5 books I picked up.
4) 'Sinner' by Maggie Stiefvater
I have wanted to read 'Sinner' since it came out, but I've been too cheap to pay for a full price, brand new book, so I'd been waiting to find it on offer or reduced. However, as it was buy one get one half price in Waterstones, I decided to buy it with...
5) 'The Lost and the Found' by Cat Clarke
which is a book I've been excited about for a really long time, so I had to buy it during its release week. Cat Clarke is one of my favourite authors (even though I still haven't managed to read her last two books yet) and the premise of this one sounds so intriguing, focusing on what happens when a missing child comes home all grown up. I haven't read any books like this before, and I am very excited to see what happens.
6) 'Crave' by Melissa Darnell
'Crave' has been on my Amazon wishlist since I joined the site, which was many, many years ago. I spotted it and I bought it, even though I can't really remember the premise or why I wanted to read it so badly all those years ago. Hopefully it'll be good.
7) 'Frankenstein' by Mary Shelley
I actually own 'Frankenstein' on my Kindle, and I have already read it, but I just thought the cover of this one was so beautiful I needed to purchase it.
8) 'The Suspicions of Mr Whicher' by Kate Summerscale
This has also become a super popular drama series (I have no idea if it's still running, but I heard good things about it at the time!) and it was one of those books that I couldn't believe I didn't already own. It's based on a true story from the Victorian times, and I haven't read any historical fiction for a very long time, so I'm looking forward to this one.
9) 'The Twins' by Saskia Sarginson
I love psychological stories, and this definitely seems like one - one of the twins is a famous magazine art director, while the other twin is slowly tearing herself apart and descending into madness, all because of something that happened when they were younger. I haven't heard too much about this book, but the description gripped me - hopefully the risk will pay off!
10) 'Red Glove' by Holly Black
Last, but most certainly not least, I bought the second book in the Curse Workers trilogy by Holly Black. No, I have not got the first book, but I really enjoy Holly Black's writing style so I'm going to get hold of it eventually!
I hope you enjoyed this installment of Top Ten Tuesday; see you next week!
