Top Ten Tuesday ~ Top Ten Books On My Spring 2014 TBR List

"Top Ten Tuesday" is an original feature/weekly meme created on the blog "The Broke and the Bookish". This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at "The Broke and the Bookish". Since I am just as fond of them as they are, I jump at the chance to share my lists with them! Have a look at their page, there are lots of other bloggers who share their lists here.

  1. Persuasion is one of my favorite Jane Austen novels. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. :) North and South and Twelves Years a Slave are also on my to read lists some time in the future. :)

  2. Thank you, Lois.

    I have to confess, I have read "Persuasion" and it is my favourite book by my favourite author (altough another book is my absolute favourite). But I have decided to reread all her books this year and have find an online group that discusses "The Motherhood and Jane Austen", so I am reading her book and therefore had to put it on my list. ;-)

    But I always love to talk to other Austen lovers (well, to anyone who likes the same books as I do) and would love to hear from you once you read any of the books I mentioned.

    And - which other books of Jane Austen belong to your favourites?

    Have a good day,

    1. My favorite Jane Austen novel is Pride and Prejudice but I love all of her books. :)

    2. That would probably be my second favourite. But as you say, I love them all, too.

      I've had a look at your blog in the meantime and really love it. I posted on two of your posts: My favourite books and 2014 Reading Challenges. Unfortunately, it would not let me click on "Notify me", so if you reply and I don't answer right away, that is the reason. I will check in there again in a couple of days.

      Have a nice day,
