Top Ten "Older" Books You Don't Want People To Forget About

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's post is Top Ten "Older" Books You Don't Want People To Forget About.

This is the perfect week for this considering I just barely unpacked my books.  That's right, my books that haven't seen the light of day in over two years are now on a bookshelf.  Granted, I'm still trying to organize them.  Once they're in a presentable fashion, I may have to take pictures...

From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs Basil E Frankweiler by EL Konisburg
If I Should Die Before I Wake by Han Nolan
Mary, Bloody Mary by Carolyn Meyer
Numbering all the Bones by Ann Rinaldi

Going from living in a museum to a Neo-Nazi experiencing a Jewish ghetto in WWII to a King Henry VIII genre to an American Civil War novel.  I do believe I once upon a time had a broad taste in my books...

The Phantom Tollbooth by Juster
The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares
Turnabout by Margaret Peterson Haddix

A tollbooth to some girly-feel-good books to a reverse aging book.  Yep, I had excellent tastes when I was in middle school...

Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton
The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova

My only two adult books in this list involve some dinosaur biotechnology bull s**t and Dracula.  Hmm, I'm surprised that there's only one book involving vampires in this list...


  1. I loved Ann Rinaldi books when I was younger - and a couple of the others on your list are familiar as well. Great picks, and thanks for sharing!

  2. Great list. I love your choices.
