Top Ten Tuesday – Forgotten Books

The Broke and the Bookish host a weekly meme called Top Ten Tuesday.
This week we revisit those precious gems from our recent past.
Thanks to the Classics Club and the Australian Women Writers challenge I have been prompted & encouraged to read some long lost, unknown or forgotten classics.
I hope this post helps them to be not to forgotten any more!

  1. Ah, Mansfield Park is on my list for this year. I just finished Persuasion this past week, and I find that title to be underrated too. Anne is such an interesting character, and that family…Oh my!


  2. I love this topic. With all the distraction of new books, it's nice to be reminded of the older ones. Just added \”So Big\” to my list!-Naomi
