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. Several of those are on my list as well. Hope you enjoy American Dirt. Im reading it now. It's a tough story so I'm reading it slowly - so good though.

  2. Well, I just added half-a-dozen books to my TBR pile :) How could I resist Separation Anxiety with the dog on the cover? Or the French titles? I look forward to reading the reviews!

  4. I'm really looking forward to American Dirt too. The author spoke at SIBA and had just about everyone there crying.

  17. Yep, American Dirt is at the top of my list! My husband is currently reading The Splendid and the Vile and says it's very good, so it will go on my stack once he's finished. I didn't know Paulette Jiles had a new one coming out. I loved News Of the World and look forward to this new one. Thanks for bringing all of these to my attention, Deb!

  18. My husband loves Binging with Babish, and he's always sharing videos with me that he thinks I'll like! A very interesting and creative idea. :)

  19. I can't wait to get my hands on American Dirt. I read two books, one memoir and one fiction, from this author last year and was wowed with her sense of description. I also see a couple of other titles, one being the Larson one, which call to me since I'm reading more nonfiction at this stage of my life than ever!

  20. That Larson book has caught my eye as well.

  21. I also want to read American Dirt this month. It has received a lot of buzz! Thanks for letting me know about the new upcoming Erik Larson book ... sounds like a must.
