Top Ten Tuesday | Color Your Bookshelf! (aka More Random Books From My Shelf)

March 7, 2017
Another Tuesday has arrived and with it another edition of
Top Ten Tuesday seems the “rule” of publication on Finding Wonderland.
Broke and Bookish March 7 | Freebie Topic

Since the ladies over at Broke and Bookish are again taking
another breather for a second week, I am left (again) to discover a random
topic. I have some ideas for topics that are, shall we say, a bit more time extensive not to mention deserving of more thought. But as is my usual dilemma, I waited
too long to put this together (also I thought the new Top Ten Tuesday schedule
was going to be up). This means that I was looking for an easy something
bookish to put together. These things happened in my quest to do this.

I pondered.
Putting together a list of Dystopian novels on my shelf came to mind.
I thought.
I told myself, “Put together that feature you had planned
that involves spotlighting characters.”
I didn’t. I read. I blogged about other things. I wrote articles. I binge watched Emerald City
In short, I didn’t do this.
Then, I thought, “What’s our Tuesday bookstagram challenge??” (Looking for a bookstagram challenge? Check out my and Tressa’s #WishfulWonder challenge!)
The answer to that was a color challenge. The particular
color combo is green and navy. Boom! I had my basically-the-same-as-last-week
Top Ten Tuesday. The difference? The method in which I found the books to
feature. So all I’ve done is gone on another mini bookshelf tour by pulling out
ten random navy and green colored novels. In the end, this is kind of fun because it allows Finding Wonderland to spotlight books that aren’t ordinarily spotlighted here. (Plus I get to ask all of YOU: Which of these do you recommend??)
Let’s look at all the navy and green books.

1. Beauty and the
| I randomly picked this little book up at Walmart the other day. I
mean, that cover?? Amazon | Goodreads
2. Matched by
Ally Condie | I’ve read mixed reviews on this series, but I’m still really
excited about this one. Amazon | Goodreads
3. Dark Star by
Bethany Frenette | A fierce (looking) superhero story?? Um, yes please! I’ll read that. Amazon |
4. Where Two Hearts
by Liz Johnson | This sweet contemporary romance series not only
contains nice, easy read stories, but the setting is a major draw. Pick them up, and be
swept up in Prince Edward Island. Amazon | Goodreads

5. Reign of Shadows
by Sophie Jordan | With its recent release to paperback, I picked this beauty
up not knowing much about it. But THIS COVER! It’s gorgeous, and that’s all I
need to know. Amazon | Goodreads
6. Isla and the
Happily Ever After
by Stephanie Perkins | Considering how I adored Anna and the French Kiss, reading Isla
and Lola’s stories are HIGH on my priorities list. At least my bookish lists.
Amazon | Goodreads
7. Submerged by
Dani Pettrey | This is not only (possibly) my favorite of Dani’s books, it’s
also the first book I read by her (and her debut) plus it served as “the” book
that pulled me back towards my love of contemporary suspense. Ps; this beauty is currently free on Kindle! Amazon |

8. Carve the Mark
by Veronica Roth | Mixed reviews seem to be the name of the game for this one.
After the hype from Divergent, that’s
to be expected. Have you read this novel?? Amazon | Goodreads
9. Truest by
Jackie Lea Sommers | Another “newbie” book and author, I remember hearing rave
things about this debut back when it released. Alas, I never read it, but since
it’s now on my shelf, hopefully I’ll remedy this. Amazon | Goodreads
10. Siren’s Song by Mary Weber | Mary’s epic story comes to
its end with Siren’s Song. (PS: LOOK
AT THIS COVER!) Amazon | Goodreads
Come by and hang out!
*Video goes live TOMORROW.

That’s it for today. What did you feature on this random Top
Ten Tuesday freebie? How do you decide what to use on these “your choice”
weeks? Comment down below with any and all bookish thoughts! I’d love to chat
with you.

    Oooh, pretty! I've thought about organizing my bookshelves so they look pretty….aaand then I remember that I'm lazy. ;-)

      I know the feeling, Jane. My bookshelves are in terrible need of reorganization but I'm going to see if I can hope off until May when my annual unhaul and reorganization is due. Plus, I have plans to film a booktube video of it, so that will require a bit more time. :)

      Thanks so much for visiting.

    Covers are always fun. I wasn't crazy about Matched but I liked the cover a lot. Reign of shadows has an amazing cover too.

      Matched does have a cool cover; I really like how the series' cover almost "tells" its own story. Good to know about its story – I've heard that it's not the best in terms of a story/writing, etc. :)

      Reign of Shadows has an AMAZING cover. It has so many intricate patterns, and is cooler in person.

      Thanks for stopping by, Greg.
