Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
Here’s how it works: Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl assigns a topic for each Tuesday. If you check this link, you’ll find she’s assigned topics for several future weeks so you can plan ahead. She adds, “create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list . . . Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you!”
Each week Jana posts a Linky on her blog where you can (if you want) share a link to your post and check out other bloggers’ posts.

I have not read any of these. Nice list. https://cindysbookcorner.blogspot.com/2022/09/top-ten-tuesday-authors-that-gravitate.html
Thanks, Cindy. I enjoyed your special focus on the topic. I love to discover patterns like that in an author’s works.
I’ve heard good things about Wide Sargasso Sea.

Thanks, Lydia. I enjoyed your list of books about wetlands, although I don’t think I would have had enough books for a list on any one term.
I LOVED Wide Sargasso Sea!
I didn’t love it, but I’m glad I read it.
Yep – some definite similarities in choices. 🙂 I’ve read but didn’t think of Deep End of the Ocean, In the Woods, and Cold Mountain – all of which I loved! Thanks for stopping by!

So glad to see the Alan Paton in your list. His fears for the future of South Africa sadly came true
Yes, Karen, a very sad but necessary book. Thanks for stopping by.
Gah, I totally forgot Tana French. Great list!
Thanks for reading and commenting.
I finally found a list where I read more than one book. LOL
Wide Sargasso Sea, Cold Mountain and Cry, the Beloved Country, all fantastic books. Thanks, Mary.
Thanks for visiting my TTT this week.
