Take Ten

Top Ten books I want to read but don't own yet

1. The Count of Monte Cristo by Dumas
Ever since I read Dear Mr. Knightley, I have wanted to pick this one up, since it was the one classic that she referenced quite a bit that I have not read. (granted, a lot of the books that were referenced were Jane Austen.;))

2. The Story Keeper by Lisa Wingate
I like most of her novels, so I would like to try this one out.

3. The Secret of Pembrooke Park by Julie Klassen
This is another author who's books I have, for the most part, enjoyed. So, I would like to read this one!

4. The Princess Spy by Melanie Dickerson
This one looks cute!

5. Rebels by Jill Williamson
I want to find out what happens in this series!

6. Bridge to Haven by Francine Rivers
I loved her Mark of the Lion series, so I want to try this one (though, I realize it will be very different!).

7. The Door in the Hedge by Robin McKinley

I enjoyed a lot of her books when I was younger, so I thought I would try this one, sometime...

8. Secrets of Sloane House by Shelley Gray
This one just looks interesting.:)

9. An Unsuitable Match by Stephanie Grace Whitson
This is another author who's books I enjoyed when I was a bit younger. I like the historical detail.:)

10. The Chiveis Trilogy by Bryan M. Liftin
This series just looks interesting.:)
So, what books are on your top ten list?


  1. I want to read all of Melanie Dickerson's books! *peers guiltily at shelf* Oooh,and I love Robin McKinley!

    1. I know! I have only looked at Melanie Dickerson`s books, but haven't actually read them. The Princess Spy looks especially fun though!

  2. These are all great books!
    I had a chance to get a review copy of The Story Keeper, I passed it up. I wish I had taken it.

    1. I had the chance to review it too, but went for The Family Project instead. It wasn't quite what I thought (more of a program than stand alone book) so now I am wishing I went with The Story Keeper! Her Prayer Box book was so good, so I'm hoping this one is as well.:)

  3. I haven't heard of any of these so I'm no help, haha! But I think Robin McKinley's books are supposed to be good! Thanks for stopping by!

    Rachel @ Beauty and the Bookshelf

    1. The ones I have read has been good! How could one go wrong with not just one retelling of Beauty and the Beast, but two! lol.

  4. Great list! I haven't heard of most of these, but I love Robin McKinley!
    Thanks for stopping by The Story Goes...!
