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. I love, love, love Enemy Pie. Have you read An Apple Pie for Dinner? It's about a grandmother who wants to make an apple pie but who barters with others to assemble all the ingredients.

  2. Aww, what a sweet list! Now I'm craving pie.

    Thanks for stopping by earlier.

  3. What a great and yummy idea. Pies, I love pies.

    From your books, I have read the first two adult books and the last one. I wasn't too keen on "Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie" but I absolutely loved the Guernsey book and "The Help". Great choices.

    Thanks for visiting my TTT earlier.

  4. I've read Sweetness at the Bottom... and Guernsey... and definitely see the pie connection. But thanks to all these books, I now want to completely ransack the fridge/ kitchen. 😂 What a fun, yummy theme! ~Lex

  5. No good reading about pies , you need to eat them

  6. Who knew there were so many books about pie out there? Awesome!

    Happy TTT!

  7. Such a fun post! I love pretty much all pie and crave it every time I read about it in a book, lol.

  8. These are so cute! I adore THe Little Bitty Bakery cover!

  9. I remember World of Pies, but I must have read it pre-blogging days since I have no record of it. I've also read Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, The Help and Guernsey. Fun list!

  10. Oh the Guernsey book is so great isn't it? Like Les I think I read World of Pies... or maybe it was on my wishlist at some point. So many books about pies and of course now I want some :)

  11. Who would've "thunk" you could get a whole post about pies? Great thinking, Deb.

  12. I'm all about pie. My husband and i were just talking about whihc we'd rather have forever - cake or pie. I went with pie.
