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 have had Swimmers, Paris Apartment and French Braid on my anticipated reads list. Thanks for sharing Deb.

  2. Nice picks! These are all new to me ones. I hope you enjoy them all this year!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  3. The PAris Apartment is one I'm really looking forward to!

  4. I'm looking forward to French Braid, still hoping I'll receive a review copy as I begged one from the publisher having done my year of Anne Tyler last year!

  5. Some very interesting titles here, Deb. I'll be interested in hearing how you like them. Or not!

  6. The Swimmers is high on my list to read as well. As for Book Lovers, I know nothing of it but will gladly pick it for the title!

  7. I'm really excited about The Paris Apartment. I liked her previous work!

  8. I'm looking forward to How High We Go in the Dark too.

  9. I've only read one book by Katherine Center, but I enjoyed it quite a lot, so I'll be on the lookout for her new novel. The Swimmers sounds promising, too. Soundings is a book I think my book group would love to read since we all enjoy watching the gray whales pass by as they migrate back and forth along our Oregon coast. Thanks, Deb!

  10. I keep seeing How High We Go in the Dark and now I want to read it too! Book Lovers sounds cute and I'm curious about The Paris Apartment. So many great sounding books!

  11. I'm interested in both Book Lovers and The Bodyguard. Both sound like ones I would enjoy.
