Top Ten Tuesday: Books I have 1-Clicked recently


Welcome to this week's edition of Top Ten Tuesday which is hosted by 
That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week's theme is about quotes which is something that I am really absolutely no good at. So instead, I bring you something I am good at, which is the 1-click purchase, whether it be for books or audiobooks. I have a terrible tendency to read emails from Bookbub in the middle of the night I am not sure if that is why I 1-Click with abandon or if I would do that anyway! Probably the latter. 

Here are ten of my recent purchases:

Boys Swallows Universe by Trent Dalton - this has been one of the biggest books here in Australia so it is possibly a bit surprising that I haven't already read this, but I haven't. When it came up as a daily deal on Audible I snapped it up.

The Model Wife by Tricia Stringer - I have read a few books by Tricia Springer over the years and so when this came up as a Daily Deal I didn't have to think twice.

Thirty Thousand Bottles of Wine and a Pig Called Helga by Todd Alexander - I have no idea why I bought this one! Maybe because of the title?

War Brides by Helen Bryan - I do like a WWII story, and this one looks like a good one.

Opium and Absinth by Lydia Kang - I have seen this book mentioned on a few Top Ten Tuesday posts so I htought I would take a chance on it.

Deadman's Track by Sarah Barrie - I have heard a lot of good things about Sarah Barrie so thought I would give her a try.

The Life She Chooses by Maggie Christenson - A few months ago I bought the first book in this series. I haven't read it yet but that doesn't stop me from buying book two.

The Sun Also Rose in Paris by Penny Fields-Schneider - Arty Paris in the 1930s! Yes please.

The Little Teashop in Tokyo by Julie Caplan - These destination style books are generally something that I enjoy. I haven't read this author before so we will see how it goes.

The Beekeepers Promise by Fiona Valpy - Dual timeline, France, WWII. This one ticks all my boxes!

Have you read any of these books? Do you have a tendency to 1-click at any time of the day?


  1. I like the look of Opium- seems like I've seen that one around a bit too. Hope it's as good as it sounds!

  2. I also tend to do the BookBub thingy late at night! What categories do you click? Because I can't remember seeing any of these and I want a few. Boy Swallow Universe I've seen and want to read it yes...

    Love your twist. I love book quotes. Have books and posts and you name it to proof it. But I didn't have time to make a new post today, so just used an old one.

    1. I think my categories are historical fiction, romance and crime. Something like that!

  4. I'm terrible for one-clicking at any time of the day! LOL I have Opium and Absinthe too, think it was free or very cheap on Prime Reading.

    1. It's a terrible affliction we share Cath!

  5. Great list! I haven't heard of most of these, I'll have to check them out.

  6. This is a fab topic choice. I'm going to steal it one week when there's a freebie lol

  7. Looks like you have ten great reads ahead of you then! The Model Wife sounds really interesting—I'm adding it to my TBR pile now.

  8. Ha ha. I'm definitely more susceptible to impulse buying when I'm tired. Although, to be truthful, I'm always susceptible to book deals ...

    Happy TTT (on a Thursday)!

    1. Susceptible exactly describes my condition Susan!
