Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week a new theme is suggested for bloggers to participate in. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want. Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.

  1. Great list! I need to read more bookish books. I always love them, so I don’t know why I don’t read them more often.

  2. Hey there! Great post! I added several to my TBR. I’ve read The Midnight Library (loved), The Christmas Bookshop and Christmas By The Book – and enjoyed them. Looks like you’re into bookish books as well! 😉

  3. Great choices, Wendy🙂 I really must get to Midnight Library soon. I love the cover of Christmas by the Book.

  4. So many great bookish books here! Besides Meet Me in the Margins, I also enjoyed The Christmas Bookshop. I’ve seen Talk Bookish to Me around a lot lately. I need to check that one out. 🙂

    • They are all so good. I hope you enjoy Talk Bookish to Me. I’m reading the sequel to Talk Bookish to me now, called Adult Assembly Required.

  5. I love your bright and colorful list Wendy! I have only read The Midnight Library and loved it. But there are a few on your list that definitely draws my attention…

    My week is hectic! I do hope it’s a bit better with you!

  6. Great theme Wendy! There are some awesome books here and I’d love to add them to my list, especially The Midnight Library. I can’t wait to discover these characters. Thank you for sharing!

  7. I haven’t read any of these, but if the characters are bookish, I know I’d like them. Some of these titles are pretty clever!

  8. I have The Midnight Library sitting on my bookshelf and still haven’t read it. I need to put that near the top of the pile. I misunderstood the task, as I listed my favorite characters ever from books, but oh well.

  9. I love your list! There are so many good books on it. But then, who doesn’t love a book with such fun bookish characters in it? 😀

  10. I’ve seen By The Book mentioned on a few lists this week and I’ve heard so much about The Midnight Library, I even did a reading comprehension exercise for my English Language class where I read an extract of it and analysed it. It did make me want to read it but I’ve actually heard mixed things about it….we’ll see if I ever actually pick it up!

    I love all the colourful covers too!

    Thanks for always commenting on my blog, it means more than I can say and I’m sorry I can’t always return the favour.
