#TopTenTuesday Books In My TBR Pile Written Before I Was Born

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl.

The rules are simple:

Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want. Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post. Add your name to the Linky widget on that day’s post so that everyone can check out other bloggers’ lists. Or if you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment.

This week’s topic is Books Written Before I Was Born, either books we’ve read or books we want to read. My list is made up of the latter. And, no, I’m not going to disclose my birth year!

  1. Oooh, I loved Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day. I mostly read it because i loved the movie and was curious if the book would hold up, but it was SO. MUCH. FUN. (and a pretty quick read, too)

    I have a few Rumer Godden books on my TBR, but I don’t think I had that one on my radar. The cover immediately draws me in, though.
