Top Ten Tuesday



This is my first time to join in the fun of Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week we're asked to list ten favorite books featuring a setting of our choice. I choose IRELAND! 

In no particular order, here are 10 of my favorites:

1) Light a Penny Candle
2) Circle of Friends
3) The Copper Beech
4) Evening Class
5) Quentins
6) Tara Road
7) The Glass Lake
8) Scarlet Feather
9) Silver Wedding
10) Firefly Summer

All were written by the marvelous, Maeve Binchy, who passed away last year. We are so fortunate she became a writer, quite by accident! Click on the link above to learn more.  

If you've never read any of Ms. Binchy's novels, here's what you can expect:

*Getting involved in the characters' lives immediately.

*Devouring page after page until you can't see anything but blurry words and must stop reading for a while.

*Wishing you could crawl into a window seat, relax, read all day and night, and have someone bring you food and drink.


Visit The Broke and the Bookish for more Top Ten Tuesday posts, and to add your favorites, too. Just include the link to that particular post, not your entire blog link. 


Join in & happy reading!
