Happy Tuesday bookish friends! It was a GORGOUS 60 degree day here in Ohio, so I can’t complain. It seems as if Spring is finally upon us, but I’m not holding my breath. Ohio is famous for it’s crazy unpredictable weather. Just as we start breaking out the flip flops, mother nature will send snow. Mark my words, winter will rear its ugly head again before it is said and done.
Anyways! Tuesday has come and that means Top 10 Tuesday, a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This will be my first time participating in this meme, and I am excited to take part. I modified the question a tiny bit, hopefully this does not offend anyone. I know, my first time participating and I’m already breaking the rules…
Without further adieu, here are my top 10 books I love, but haven’t reviewed, in no particular order…
The Crucible is based off of the 17th century witch trials in Salem, Massachusetts. I am fascinated with the Salem Witch Trials. I guess it’s true what they say, who needs fiction when you have history?
John Steinbeck. Do I need to say more? This is a re-telling of the Cain and Abel story. Everything about this book is gold. The characters, the story, the writing…. Read it.
Want to go on the adventure of a lifetime? The Hobbit is the action-packed story of an un-likely hero. You will be on the edge of your seat.
If you hadn’t figured out by now, I love books that tackle the issue of racism. I also adore books that are humorous. This book combines the two in one epic novel.
I have always been fascinated with Asian culture. This book gives us a glance into the lives of Geishas before and after WWII.
I have only read three Jodi Picoult novels to date, My Sister’s Keeper, 19 Minutes, and Plain Truth. Plain Truth is my favorite of the bunch. I especially loved the plot twist.
Who doesn’t love a good circus novel? This is one man’s story.
Many people do not understand this novel. Tragedy can be beautiful too. I am a huge fan of gothic style novels.
You have probably heard me rave about this book before. It is my favorite historical fiction series. Ever.
Hauntingly beautiful. Mysterious. Gothic.
There they are! For sake of getting this posted on Tuesday and not Wednesday, it was a rapid fire post.
Have you read any of these books? Did you love them too, or did you have a different take away?
