January 24, Top Ten Tuesday, Freebie

       Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Visit their blog for more details on how to participate. Each week they will post a new Top Ten list on specific topic.

Topic: Freebie - 10 books that I've got recently

 1. Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow by Peter Høeg
I've read the book on my Kindle and loved it, so I have to have a hard copy. Though I must confess I really hate the cover of my edition, but I could not wait.

2. The Quality of Silence by Rosamund Lupton
I was lingering in a book store and wanted something, but I have not decided what. So this book caught my eyes by a winter cover and the synopsis on the back was kind of describing my mood at that moment, so I took it. Do not know anything about the author and the book itself. Might be a nice surprise.

3. Stories: All-New Tales by Neil Gaiman and a lot of other authors (short story collection).
I was checking what I have in the library for Neil Gaiman and came across this book. I like the cooperation of different known authors, when then publish their short stories together. I will see what came out of this collaboration))

4.  Lou-lan by Yasushi Inoue (short story collection). 
 I was quite surprised when I found quite a good selection of Japanese authors in my local library. I am currently reading this book and loving it, thought I must say it is not an easy read.

5.  The Mournful Demeanour of Lieutenant Boruvka: Detective Tales (Lieutenant Boruvka #1) by Josef Škvorecký.  
Again found it in a library and I was intrigued by the idea to get to know more about Czech literature.

6.  The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. 
I got this book on vacation because I have heard so much about this book and it seems to be quite popular among the bloggers and book tubers, that I just must read it. I hope it will not let me down.

7.  Holy Cow by David Duchovny. 
I got two books by David this month, one e-book and another audio book. I have no expectation, but still interested in what he might suggest as an author.

8. Bucky F*cking Dent by David Duchovny 

9. Bossypants by Tina Fey. 
 I am trying to read more non-fiction this year and the easiest way to get into it is to read memoirs of famous and funny people.

10.  Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick.
 Same applies here.


  1. I really enjoyed Bossypants! I also enjoyed Scrappy Little Nobody, but I listened to it on audio :) I hope you like them too!

    1. I have both of them on audio. I guess it is the best thing: the author can do the stresses and voice hints on really important passages of the book, only the author knows where the accents should be))

  2. I hope you get a chance to read all these!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  3. I'd quite like to Scrappy Little Nobody too.

    1. @IloveHeartlandX, I cannot really tell anything about it for now, until I've read it, but I will definitely share the review of the book.
