This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is all about book crushes and, honestly, I can’t think of a character form a book I’ve ever had a ‘crush’ on. So I’m taking things in a completely different direction.
No surprise, but my TBR pile has ballooned over the past few months. I don’t know what it is, but every book that comes across my desk looks amazing. Old, new—future releases and long out of print. Look, I know I’ll never catch up on it, but eventually I’ll make a dent in it … right? Yeah, maybe.
Either way, today I’m highlighting ten books from this ever-growing pile. While it feels like there are plenty of books on there that everyone else has read (I’ll get around to Dune … I swear), there are plenty more with far less than 100 ratings on Goodreads. Here are ten of them that I’m sure are hidden treasures.
