Top Ten Tuesday - Ten Books I Randomly Grabbed Off My Shelves

Today I'm linking up with Top Ten Tuesday hosted by 
That Artsy Reader Girl which is all about lists.  Since lists are one of my favorite things this is one of my favorite linkups!  Today's topic is Books I Randomly Grabbed Off My Shelves.  I used a random number generator to make it as random as I could!

1.  Tempest in the Tea Leaves by Kari Lee Townsend - I haven't read this one but I love the sound of a cozy mystery involving a fortune teller.

2.  Read to Death by Terrie Farley Moran - I've read one book in this series and really enjoyed it.  I bought the rest of the series and am looking forward to picking these up at some point.

3.  Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier - I've read this one several times and always enjoy it.  

4.  Curtain by Agatha Christie - This is the final Hercule Poirot and while I know so many people love this one it is not one of my favorites though it is a very clever mystery.

5. Double Whammy by Gretchen Archer - I read this cozy mystery that takes place in a casino ages ago and while I don't remember much I do remember enjoying it.  

6.  Postcards from a Stranger by Imogen Clark - I had seen several good reviews for this author from my friend Tina over at Squirrel Head Manor and picked this one up when I saw it at a used bookstore.  Unfortunately, I still haven't read it yet.

7.  Smoke and Mirrors by Barbara Michaels - This is on my Keeper Shelf and I just recently reread it and really enjoyed it.

8.  The Toymaker's Apprentice by Sherri L. Smith - This a Middle Grade retelling of The Nutcracker.  I read about a third of it several years ago and really enjoyed it but got pulled away by review books and just haven't gone back to it.

9.  Taken at the Flood by Agatha Christie - Back to the Christie shelf!  I really like this one though I don't remember much about it between rereads.

10. Rome in Love by Anita Hughes - This is an ARC that I read several years ago when it first came out and remember enjoying it.

Have you read any of these?  


  1. The titles, though not the authors mostly, are new to me. Thanks for sharing

  2. Great list. I read the first one and really enjoyed it.

  3. You know I love both Barbara Michaels and Agatha Christie! Very fun random list. :D

  4. Great list, you must have huge bookshelves! Many new to me but I an see some of your fave authors here.

  5. Oh my goodness, I haven't thought of Barbara Michaels in years! I went through a phase years ago when I was reading a lot by her.

  6. I think you'll love all books by Imogen Clark :-)

  7. I haven't heard of any of these cozy mysteries. I'll definitely be checking them out since I'm always on the lookout for new ones to love.

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!

  8. If we go to Italy next fall I'll be looking for the Anita Hughes book. Thanks for the recommendation!
