As it stands, I have some favorites I wish had seen more marketing or shelf cover time.
As always, this amazing meme it brought to us today by The Broke & The Bookish
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
In no particular order:
Strange As This Weather Has Been - strong female leads, environmental issues that Must be addressed, and the over looked wonders of the area that is Appalachia...coupled with amazing writing...this book is a gem!
This is not a 'fun' book. There is humor but it's like life preserver humor. This is a war story/stories book and it's hard. but it IS IMPORTANT and a very very well written book.
Will change your thinking on eating. Not just what you eat but when you eat it and why. This book comes into my mind on a daily basis and I'm still striving to come closer to its mark.

HMMMMM starting to realize I read a lot of pretty mainstream stuff!!
Conrad Richter had a series called The Awakening Land that started with The Trees. I absolutely loved loved loved these books!! They hardly come up anymore and I think it's time to see MORE of them!! Pioneer stories with a great female protagonist. A Family Epic series!
Ok... I'm short listing this week :( I could scrounge up a couple more like:
Getting Over It by Anna Maxted
Oh and I'm sure there are tons of others....but I bet they are on YOUR list...so I'll go see :)
Besides...I'm allllll excited because I may be able to take my kiddo home from the hospital tomorrow. (she's been in for 43 days for round 3 of chemo) one more round to go and she's done with the long treatments!! YAY!
