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 a Top Ten Tuesday Rewind. In other words, pick a previous topic you missed or would like to do again. I’ve gone for one from March 2020 – One Word Book Titles – but I’ve given it a twist by choosing only books nominated for the Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction. Links from the titles will take you to my review or the book description on Goodreads.
