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.
Today’s topic is Books I Read On Vacation (bonus points if you tell us where you were!). I only read 8 books over the summer on 3 different road trips, but I’m going for the bonus points on all of them, which should compensate for the shortfall.
And making this list has painfully reminded me that I haven’t written reviews of any of these books. I had good intentions of reviewing them right after I got home, but now I’m embarrassed to have to admit that I haven’t yet done that.
Nonetheless, here are the titles, listed in the order in which I read them.
