Top Ten Tuesday – Books Written Before I Was Born


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme by The Artsy Reader. This week’s topic is Books Written Before I Was Born. Honestly, it was tricky for me to find ten books for this topic – I’m very much a current reader and don’t tend to explore books more than a few years old. Here are a few books older than me that I’ve enjoyed.

  1. Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
  2. The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien
  3. And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
  4. The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald
  5. Walt Disney: An American Original by Bob Thomas
  6. The Giver by Lois Lowry
  7. Alanna: The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce
  8. Where the Heart Is by Billie Letts
  9. The Hunter by LJ Smith
  10. Wild Magic by LJ Smith

  1. I remember liking the book by Billie Letts, too. I try to read books from a variety of time periods though recently I’ve spent more time in the 21st century than any other. My TTT list

  2. Lots of good ones on this list, but I’m very excited to see something less frequently listed on TTT like Where The Heart Is. I read it on a whim a few years ago, not even realizing it was well known/popular, and was so impressed that I immediately followed it up with The Honk and Holler Opening Soon (didn’t enjoy quite as much, but still good).
