Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week a new theme is suggested for bloggers to participate in. 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 The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
This weeks top ten is: TOP TEN BOOKS WITH NUMBERS IN THE TITLES. I thought this might be a difficult one, but once I got started, I had to delete almost as many as I included. Because I read many different genres, I have tried to include some from various genres. I did add more than ten, but not too many. I have read all of these books and rated them at 4 stars or above.
First Category is Cozy Mysteries. Both of these books are part of series. Murder, Take Two by Carol J. Perry is #10 in the Witch Mystery series and An Ale of Two Cities by Sarah Fox is #2 in The Literary Pub Mystery series.
I wanted to include at least one Non-Fiction book so with a five star review from me, I added The Girl With Seven Names by Hyeonseo Lee.
Christian Suspense: I know this is three books, but I am counting it as one as it is a series. One Little Lie, Two Reasons to Run and Three Mission Days by Colleen Coble. The Pelican Harbor Series
This group of books is a variety and I know I have gone over ten, but couldn’t resist. The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot by Marianne Cronin is a multi-generational story with emotion, friendship and heartbreak. The Four Winds by Kristin Hannah is an historical fiction dealing with the depression in the US and In Five Years by Rebecca Serle is a drama dealing with friendship and grief. All wonderful stories.
As the year progresses (can you believe we are halfway through September already?) I couldn’t forget Christmas stories. These two were both enjoyable and had more to them than just a Christmas Romance. The 12 Christmases of You & Me by Jennifer Joyce and 25 Days ‘Til Christmas by Poppy Alexander.
