Top Ten Tuesday – Books Written Before I Was Born

Hey guys, it’s Tuesday again so it means it’s time for Top Ten Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that is hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is book written before you were born.

I was born in 1999, so I do have quite a few to choose from. I am going to pick books that I have not read yet, so think of this as a mini TBR.

  1. I was born in 1995 and lots of books I read were published before I was born. Well, actually Les Mis wa published 1862. I love the old classics- so it is of no surprise that many books I love came out before I was born

  2. “Pride and Prejudice” is one of my favorites. And I have a few of these — “Hitchhikers” and “Good Omens” and “Game of Thrones” — on my TBR as well. Great list!

  3. Daughter of the Forest looks like exactly the kind of book I would have loved in high school — I’m surprised I never heard of it. Really surprised, now that I see the number of Goodreads ratings! I thought I knew everything.
