10 Most Random Books on my Shelf

I don’t know about anyone else, but over the years I have acquired some seriously unusual books. Some of this is because back in my pre-blogging days, my primary method of finding a new book was to wander around the bookstore and just … choose. At random. Some of my strange books were given as gifts. Others, especially in the non-fiction section, are my weird husband’s books.

So I thought it might be fun to share the most random of the random with you all. These ten* books are unusual enough that I bet you wouldn’t find them at your favorite bookstore without special ordering. I’m going to go ahead and doubt that my library has any of these books but one or two either. (And y’all, my library system is BIG). So! In no particular order, here are my most random books.

*Why ten? Because no matter how hard I tried I could not narrow it down to five!

The Greyfriar

This is a book I found back when I worked at Barnes and Noble. I was shelving books and the gorgeous cover caught my eye. I mean, look at it! Every time I was in that section I would pick the book up and just look at it. Eventually I caved, bought it, and read it. It’s fine if you’re in to the steampunk vibe and paranormal romance. Nothing too special, and the series really deteriorates as it goes on. But alright for a light, fun read.

Do I Have That Book? Tag

I saw this tag on Kristin Kraves Books forever ago. She always does the most interesting tags! She didn’t tag me, but it was just such an interesting post that I saved it! And then … never got to it. So here we are! This should be interesting because I have a lot of books, but not that much variety. Well, let’s see what happens, shall we?

1. Do you have a book with deckled edges?

Oh, thousands. The first one that comes to mind is Eragon, which I was absolutely obsessed with in high school. Personally I’m not that in to deckled edges (GASP!). I like to play with the pages while I read, and that’s a lot harder to do with deckled edges. But I’m not going to complain about them either.

Tag: Books That I’ll [Probably] Never Read

Hello everybody! I’ve got about a bazillion and a half book tags in my bookmarks bar right now, so I’ll probably be bringing you a tag a week for a bit. I don’t know why I still enjoy doing tag posts so much, but I just do. 🙂

I saw this one back in March on The Tin Kitchen, and since I’ve been going through a bit of an existential crisis regarding all of the books I will never get to read (*pauses for a round of sobbing*) I immediately connected with it and decided to save it for a rainy day. That rainy day never came, but I’m going with it anyway!

P.S. If you don’t follow Katie at The Tin Kitchen, I highly recommend you do, she has a great voice and always has thoughtful things to say.


A really hyped book that you’re not interested in reading

Guys, I’m sure that The Poppy War is just brilliant, but I have no intention of reading it. I’ve seen a lot of content warnings, and that’s just not for me most of the time. I’d rather cuddle up with something G-rated.
