Today’s Theme as per The Broke and the Bookish is “Top Ten REWIND” where we can go back and do a topic we missed over the years or recently or a topic we really want to revisit. Therefore, since I have only been a Top Ten Tuesday participant since February 16, 2016, they have lots of great topics that I have missed, and so I have chosen to do “Ten Books I Just HAD to Buy . . . But Are Still Sitting on my Bookshelf”.
A fellow writing friend suggested I read this. She really feels it’s a great book for writers to read, so I purchased it with every intention of reading it “soon” (about a year ago), and still haven’t made the time to read it. I did pick it up and begin it one time, and I didn’t stop because there was anything wrong with it or because it didn’t hold my attention; it’s just that I was reading something else at the same time, and I just haven’t gotten back to it yet.
I heard Sue Thomas speak in April 2016 and was so impressed with, amazed and inspired by this woman that I had to have the book that tells me more about her life story, but it still waits.
9 & 10.
I gave this book two spots because it is the first book in a series that consists of 12 books plus a cookbook and I bought the whole entire series (used and from a discount online bookseller) because I had seen one episode of the TV series based on this book series. I visited with my mom when she was in rehabilitation in a nursing home two years ago after heart surgery, and she had the TV on. When the show signed off and I saw the credit about it being based on this book series, I decided I would buy the book series to read because we don’t have TV, and in my opinion, the books are always better than a TV series or movie anyway.

Great two see that we did the same topic for the TTTs this week. I haven’t read any of the books on your list though I have heard of some of them. I like the cover for Fearless, it looks dark and intriguing. Have a lovely week and happy reading:-)
I remember finishing The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry a while back and immediately wanted to find more books about books and Penumbra was definitely one of those choices. I hope enjoy the story if/when you get to it!

Thanks for stopping by and dropping a comment.
I hope to get to Mr. Penumbra soon.
Have you read Thief of Lies? It’s on my TBR list as well. It’s not about books per se, but it’s a time travel book and it’s about going to lots of libraries and more.
