Top Ten Tuesday (2-21-12)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week, 
they post a different topic, and you get to create your own top ten list. So, this week's 
topic is:

Books I'd Save If My House Was About to be Abducted by Aliens

1) To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee - a classic that must always be on my shelves.

2) A Tree Grows In Brooklyn by Betty Smith - my favorite book of all time. Of course I would have to grab this one.

3) The Harry Potter series - okay, so this is technically seven books, but I couldn't choose a few of them and leave the rest behind!

4) Bossypants by Tina Fey - such a funny book that I would feel guilty if I left that behind.

5) Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris - my favorite Sedaris book.

6) Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen - another classic that I would have to grab. Plus, I would feel bad if I left Mr. Darcy behind.

7) The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern - such a wonderful story, decadent in the details that left me wishing that the book never ended.

8) Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah - such a touching story.

9) Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand - a great World War II story (and I love a great WWII story).

10) Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte - another classic. I would feel bad if I left Jane behind.

So, which books would you save? Let me know!


  1. Love it, Mr. Darcy CANNOT be left behind!


  2. I am going to suggest that my bookclub do both Unbroken and THe Night Circus. Thanks for reminding me.

  3. I love your #4. It would be sad to see Tina being abducted by aliens.
