Maybe it's because I've lived in the same town for most of my life, but one of my favorite genres is moving-and-starting-over books. You know this kind of book. A person gets tired of her boring life or his terrible life and decides to move somewhere fresh and start a new life. According to my list of books read at Goodreads, I've read 51 of these. Light & fun reading (as I mentioned in this post).
Here are some of my favorite moving-and-starting-over books:
Wait a minute. I see a crazy pattern here. All ten of these books are about people who move to Paris and start over. All ten. And they are favorites. They are favorites, however, not because they are amazingly well written and not because the characters meet fascinating people and see fascinating things and not because the characters' lives are transformed...no, these are my favorites for one reason only: the people move and start over in Paris. Crazy.
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
