Top Ten Tuesday: Throwback To The Beginning

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and it's a way to share what you're loving in list form.  The topic changes every week, so there is always something new to discover!
This week's topic is:  Throwback Freebie!  Because this is such a wide topic, I'm going to go with ten books I loved when I first started blogging (between 2006-2010).  My early blogging days were very sporadic...and so was my reading and recording of that reading.  That's all gotten better over the years...kind of.  Thank you, Goodreads and blogging communities!  Regardless, here are my top ten books from that time period:

Peace Like a River by Leif Enger

The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E Frankl



Skeletons at the Feast by Chris Bohjalian

The Red Tent by Anita Diamant

Midwives by Chris Bohjalian

The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski

The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery

Clearly 2007-2008 was not a great reading year for me; I blame grad school.  2009 wasn't much better, but I had A LOT of 4 star reads that year...and I was working a TON.  What are some of your favorite reads from before 2010?

Also, look for next week's Top Ten:  Books On My Fall TBR

Happy reading :)
