  18. Pleased to see you have been enjoying so many five star reads this year! ?

  19. I never used to worry about genres, until your TBR pile starts getting out of control. Then you realize you need to start sorting books in genres. We tend to “feel” like a certain type of book.

    Nice TTT! Thanks for visiting me!

I love seeing how everyone took the freebie TTT topic and picked so many different types of top-ten lists! I’m interested in looking up where to find Little Free Library (a short story is just what I need with my list of Big Books) and Peter May has been on my TBR for a while!

    • You’re welcome.

      You can buy an ebook copy of Little Free Library from Tor Books. It’s only a dollar or two, I believe, and totally worth it.
