Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at The Broke and the BookishEach week, we get a theme to list our top tens.

I haven't read any of these books, but I really do want to read The Book Thief.

I tried to come up with a list like this several years ago and failed miserably. I've only read one book on your list.

Great list! I had trouble choosing my Top 10, too. So many amazing books got left out :( And I loved The Book Thief, too.

The Book Thief is a good one! It almost made my list....too many good ones over the last 2 1/2 to 3 years to list them all. Thanks for stopping by!

Great list! I would've put The Book Thief on my list but I hadn't written a review for it and it slipped my thoughts when I made my list! The Cellist of Sarajevo was also a great book but I think I read it before I started book blogging...I think...haha

Here's my TTT for this week =)

I must read The Cellist of Sarajevo. It sounds like a fascinating story.
