Top Ten Tuesday ★ 12

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to The Artsy Reader Girl
 in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

How it works:
I assign each Tuesday a topic and then post my top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join me and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information. You’ll find the schedule of upcoming TTT topics below so you can plan ahead. I’ll post a Linky here on the blog each week so you can link up your post (if you want). If you don’t have a blog, post your picks in the comment section below! Have tons of fun talking books and getting to know your fellow bloggers!
NOTE: If a weekly topic is listed as a “freebie”, you are invited to come up with your own topic. Sometimes I will give your topic a theme, such as “love”, a season, or an upcoming holiday. That just means that you can come up with any topic you want that fits under that umbrella.

Ten Books I Bought For the Title


Today, our Top Ten Tuesday theme is 'Books I Bought Because —'. I get to fill in the blank of why I bought the books. I like titles. I blame my latent authorial yearnings. I will pull a killer title off the shelf and toss it in my basket without even looking at the synopsis. It hasn't steered me wrong very often, I've found some amazing authors this way.
Water Bound by Christine Feehan

I'm a water-attracted autistic individual, this book was an auto-buy at a used bookstore in Warner Robins, GA. And then I discovered the heroine is autistic and it became my favourite book and #1 rec. And one of my first reviews on my site.
No Place to Run by Maya Banks

I thought this was a book one when I bought it but I really didn't care, I discovered KGI and Maya Banks because of this book and I am forever grateful for this book title.
Beast Behaving Badly by Shelly Laurenston

That's right, I started my obsession with my personal deity in the middle of her pack-pride series and I have no regrets. This is still my favourite of the series as it's Blayne's story and it's my introduction to Shelly Laurenston.
Deception Point by Dan Brown
I want to say that I bought Deception Point before the whole The DaVinci Code craze. I appreciate the craze though, it made it easier to find his books in stores.
Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison
Kim Harrison's first few books have some 难忘 (y'all, I am having a day today, I forgot the English word for unforgettable) titles.
Game Misconduct by Bianca Sommerland

Did I know that this was a polyamorous romance when I bought it? Nope. Did I enjoy it? Yep. Did it introduce me to healthy polyamory? Yep. Am I open to it myself? Yep.
The Wolf Who Loved Me by Lydia Dare

This was a random buy at my used bookstore one day when I was still recovering from my ankle getting mangled and I wound up buying the entire series. Can't say I didn't enjoy the books. Historical romances meet paranormal romances. Choice.
Dog with a Bone by Hailey Edwards

I JUST HAVE A THING FOR DOGS AND I WON'T EVEN DEFEND THIS TITLE-BUY BUT I LOVE THIS SERIES.
Nameless Queen by Rebecca McLaughlin

This was actually a name-cover combo. I still haven't found time to read it but I bought it on my last kindle-spree. I do want a physical copy because it looks so pretty.
Magic of the Gargoyles by Rebecca Chastain

This was a random arse purchase but I'm so glad I bought it because, again, love it. Gargoyles and magic. LOVE IT.


Stay inside, be kind, stay safe, and pick up a new hobby during quarantine, y'all! Until next time, have a happily ever after!
