Thank you to Emma @ Words and Peace for the prompt today.

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. Each Tuesday That Artsy Reader Girl assigns a topic and then post her top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join her and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.


  1. Now I'm curious about what "number" books I've read.

  2. had 10% Happier on my list, too! I really enjoyed reading about Dan Harris's experiences with anxiety and how much meditation helped him. It was the perfect mix for me of non fiction and memoir. Great picks!

  3. Good job! And, you solved a mystery for me--I was trying to remember The 6:41 to Paris by Jean-Philippe Blondel. It's bugged me for a year or so!!!
    I forgot the Book of Three! Not my thing at all so you'd think I'd have remembered it!

  4. I love how you went even further than the first 10. I've not read any of these but I did read my first Alexander McCall-Smith book this year. His style took some getting used to. I've been seeing a lot of Ten Thousand Doors of January today since it's so new. I have it on hold so when it comes in I'll be able to see why it's so popular.

  5. Millions looks like a fun read.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

  6. We have #5 in common! You are amazing, I LOVE how you went further than my little challenge https://wordsandpeace.com/2019/10/01/top-ten-book-titles-with-numbers-in-them/

    1. It was a fun list to make. Thank you, Emma, for proposing it.

  7. I am not sure why, but I find 6-word memoirs really interesting. When I was in the library, I held 6-word memoir competitions that were really fun.

    1. Me, too, Helen. I think I'm always fascinated with much-in-little.

  8. Ah Dr Seuss! I miss my kiddo being young enough to read Dr. Seuss...
    I struggled a bit with this topic but as I see people's lists I'm constantly going "of course!"
    It's actually not that hard to find. Just hard to remember them all off the top of your head! :)

  9. Oh my goodness! I posted about this TTT meme on this week's Sunday Post, but you clearly trumped everyone so far with all your number goodness!

  10. Great post! I love the numbers challenge you set for yourself.
