Top Ten Tuesday

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday list as suggested by The Broke and the Bookish is probably the easiest one I’ve ever done!  The hard part will be stopping at just 10.  🙂      The list is the “Top Ten Books I’d Buy Right This Second if Someone Handed my a Fully Loaded Gift Card”.

  1. The Shadow's Curse by [McCulloch, Amy]
  2. Kill Devil (Jed Patrick series Book 2) by [Dellosso, Mike]
  3. Thief of Lies (Library Jumpers) by [Drake, Brenda]
  4. Ice Massacre (Mermaids of Eriana Kwai Book 1) by [Warner, Tiana]
  5. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children Book 1) by [Riggs, Ransom]
  6. The Outliers by [McCreight, Kimberly]
  7. All the Light We Cannot See: A Novel by [Doerr, Anthony]
  8. The Rogue Knight by [McClure, Marcia Lynn]

Of course, I love to read fiction, but there are times I need to or choose to read nonfiction. Now, most of my nonfiction usually has something to do with writing, and because I have and use Scrivener, but not anywhere close to completely, I really want the last book on this list so that I can use Scrivener to its fullest. I could have made a list of top ten fiction books as well as a list of top ten nonfiction/writing books I would buy right this second with a really loaded gift card!  😀

How about you? Do you prefer fiction or nonfiction and why?

    • Thank you for stopping by and commenting, anovelglimpse. I love hearing from people who visit me here. I just thought that Miss P’s sounds so fascinating. I hope I get it soon too! Now, if I could only find someone willing to give me that fully loaded gift card. ;D

    • Hi Lisa,

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. You know, it’s funny, I really do want to read all of the books on this list, but I still have soooo many books in my home that I do own and haven’t even read yet, but I always want more! I just can’t have enough books!


  1. Nice list! All the Light We Cannot See is great. To answer your question, I tend to prefer fiction because I usually read as a relaxing escape-the-world type of thing haha. I want to explore new worlds and people!


    • Hi Aubrey,

      Thanks so much for stopping by, for commenting, and for answering my question. You’re the second person who has commented about how great All the Light We Cannot See is, so you are making me really want to get my hands on it! 🙂
      I, too, love fiction much more than nonfiction. When I was young, you couldn’t get me to read nonfiction, unless it was a class assignment. I always thought — boring! However, now that I am older, I do like a good nonfiction book once in a while, but I still much prefer fiction because I want to escape reality sometimes!

    • Hi John,

      Thank you so much for following my blog and reading some of my posts, and thank you for you kind comment. I do happen to have quite a few writing books. There just happen to be a few that have come highly recommended to me that I would still like to get my hands on. I don’t see any of them on your list, but I really appreciate your willingness to share.


    • Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. Actually, since I posted this, I was able to get my hands on the Scrivener for Dummies book and I have begun to read the parts that I still need to figure out, and I love that it’s easy reading and simple to understand how to do what needs to be done to be able to really utilize all of the great features of Scrivener! I love Scrivener!
