top ten tuesday


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 week’s topic is Water so we’re going with books that either have a body of water on the cover, or in the name. Which gives us:

Isabel Allende – City of the Beasts
Mandy Baggot – Truly, Madly, Greekly
Trevor Baxendale – Something In The Water
Terry Goodkind – Wizard’s First Rule
John Grisham – The Pelican Brief

Belinda Jones – I Love Capri
CS Lewis – The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader
Stephen King – Skeleton Crew
Sally Malcolm – Stargate: Atlantis – Rising
Ali McNamara – The Little Flower Shop by the Sea

This didn’t quite go where I expected it to go when I started poking through my books on Goodreads for things connected to water. I fully thought it would be another bright, colourful, summery, chick-lit selection, making up for the fact it’s grey, windy and wet out there. But then the first two I found were Stephen King and John Grisham!
