All that adding up of book titles read (see previous post) made me think about books I have read and loved and so I’m posting a “Rhubarb Top 10”, all of my very own.
We need to talk about Kevin by Lionel Shriver
The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula LeGuin
One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovitch by Alexander Solzhenitsyn
The Snow Leopard by Peter Matthiessen
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt
My Name is Red by Orhan Pamuk (I can hear my entire Bristol book group groaning!)
The Robber Bride by Margaret Attwood
Never Let me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge (all my childhood princess dreams in one book)
East of the Mountains by David Gutterson
Top 10’s are so hard, aren’t they? I just know I’m going to look at that list in a few days’ time and want to change it!
ps. I tried my luck with the Australian Top 10 listed on Duck’s blog and scored…. TWO which promptly wiped the BBC smile off my face!
