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

  1. Oh, those books about Italy look delightful!!

    I loved The Night Circus and A Little Life, although they are quite different from each other. The later made me cry. Literally.

    Merry Christmas!

    1. I've had Night Circus so long, though. I wonder why I haven't read it yet.

  4. I really enjoyed A Little Life though it took me a while to get into. It was well worth sticking it out!

    1. That's good to know. Maybe I won't expect to love it right away.

  5. I loved both A Little Life and The Night Circus (although they are VERY different books). A Little Life is definitely long, but it is so good that you will get through it in less time than you think!

  6. I can never do this assignment because I live in the moment so much I haven't even paid attention to debut books coming out in 2018.

  7. Nice list! I didn't like at Night Circus, but maybe because it was in audio, and I thought the voice of the narrator didn't fit at all with the characters. Here is my post, a mix of 2018 releases and older ones: https://wordsandpeace.com/2017/12/26/top-ten-books-im-looking-forward-to-in-2018/

  8. I haven't read The Night Circus all the way through yet either! It's one I keep looking at on my shelf and meaning to get to. I think I'm partly nervous that it won't live up to my expectations. I read A Little Life the year it came out - it's definitely one that requires a lot from the reader. I haven't read Any Human Heart, but I did just finish Restless by William Boyd and previously read half of Ordinary Thunderstorms. I felt that his ideas were amazing but the execution didn't quite work for me, so I'd be interested to see what you make of his work! Here's to a great 2018 reading year!

  9. The Night Circus has been on my TBR since 2016, but hopefully next year is the year I finally read it. From what I`ve gathered I will love the story, so I really don`t know why I`ve been putting it off.

  11. I'm hoping to read (or listen to) A Little Life, as well. And I LOVED The Night Circus (on audio). It was soooo good!

    I'm hoping to read State of Wonder (Ann Patchett), Kindred (Octavia Butler), and Stoner (John Williams), to name just a few.
