Top 5 Wednesday: Recent Purchases

Top 5 Wednesday

This blogging prompt is hosted by the Goodreads Top 5 Wednesday group


Today’s T5W prompt is Recent Purchases

Most book lovers have a hard time going too long without a book purchase. What are five books you’ve purchased recently that you’re excited to read or you’ve loved?

 

Orange

1.  The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

This colossus of a book has been on my wishlist for a long time, and I just recently decided to allow myself to buy it! Especially with it being Pride month, I wanted to include some LGBT+ books on my monthly TBR (although probably won’t finish it before July!) I’ve heard good and bad things about it, so I’m cautiously optimistic 🙂

Persuasion

2. Persuasion by Jane Austen

This was a thrift store find! For 50 cents, I couldn’t pass it up. I’ve been steadily building my classic book hoard for about a year now, and I think I’m finally in the 50s! I’m also currently reading Emma, and enjoying it, so figured more Jane Austen would be a good thing. 

House in the Cerulean Sea

3. The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune

This was a buddy read with one of my writing groups, and perfectly placed just in time for Pride month, too! I’ve actually finished reading it and was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it. Normally, this would not have been a book I’d choose on my own. Review later this week!

Silent Patient

4. The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

This was an audiobook I *borrowed* from the library. A bit of a cheat for the “recently purchased,” but I think it still counts for those of us on a budget! I also finished this one and it was pretty decent, if a bit predictable. You can see my review here. 

Save the Cat!

5. Save the Cat! Writes a Novel by Jessica Brody

This is a bit different than the normal ilk you find on my site, being a nonfic, basically self-help book, but it still deserves its time to shine in this list! Thanks to my writing group (again), I purchased this as I near the end of writing my own fantasy novel. I’ve only just barely begun to peruse chapter 1, but it already looks like it’s going to improve my writing a million-fold. I’m excited 🙂


What are some books you’ve recently purchased? Or that you’ve borrowed from the library? Or that you *want* to get?
