Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week we're talking about favorite books from pre-blogging days. Lakeside Musing has been around since 2008 and I read many of the books I consider all-time favorites before then.
You are probably getting tired of seeing Pride and Prejudice, East of Eden, Crossing to Safety, and The Good Earth appearing in my TTT posts. And, no matter how much I love them, even I am getting sick of mentioning them week after week! So, all-time favorites aside, here are my:
Top Ten Favorite Books I Read Before I Was A Blogger
Corelli's Mandolin by Louis De Berniers
The Red Tent by Anita Diamant
The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen
Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky
The Cairo Trilogy by Naguib Mahfouz
(Palace Walk, Palace of Desire, Sugar Street)
In the Beauty of the Lilies by John Updike
I Know This Much is True by Wally Lamb
Howards End by E.M. Forster
A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry
The Secret History by Donna Tartt
Clara Callan by Richard B. Wright
Yes, I know that's eleven (actually thirteen), but I just can't trim it any further. In fact, I'm even going to add one more non-fiction title that really stands out.
And the Band Played On by Randy Shilts
