Top Ten Tuesday: Best Books I’ve Read in 2017 (So Far!)

blog-top-ten-tuesdayTop Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. If you love books and making lists, this is the meme for you! This week’s topic is:

  1. Tempting list! I’d love to reread Tale of Two Cities one day & My Cousin Rachel. You’ve also given me a Gaskell I didn’t know about to look forward to 😊

    1. Brona, My Lady Ludlow is a charming novella in a similar vein to the more famous Cranford. In fact they are often grouped together under the title The Cranford Chronicles (which is what my copy is), although they are not set in the same villages. I hope you will enjoy it and some great re-reads too 🙂

  2. Lots of variety! All lists should include at least one Dickens, and glad to see Sandlands made the cut too. Seven Stages has already made it onto my wishlist on the basis of your review… 🙂

  3. That’s a great list! I loved My Cousin Rachel, Sandlands and A Tale of Two Cities too. I’m interested in reading My Lady Ludlow as I’ve enjoyed everything else I’ve read by Elizabeth Gaskell.

  4. I am going to read A Tale of Two Cities this summer. I just reread your review. I am excited. I loved My Cousin Rachel! I will just mention my first two favorite books read this year: The Nix by Nathan Hill and All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders. Happy reading for the rest of 2017.

    1. Thank you Fran and I have to agree that My Cousin Rachel is my second favourite after Rebecca too…so far anyway as I have many more of du Maurier’s novels to read 😀
