This week I decided to take part in The Broke and Bookish Blog’s top ten Tuesday because today’s topic seemed to be so flexible and fun. Today’s topic is Top Ten Books For Every X To Read. I decided to make mine, ‘Top Ten Books Every Women Born in The 1970’s should read’ (because you know we’re awesome). I am going to make the summaries short and sweet.
1.The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult…This is just a wonderful book with so many layers. A women befriends a older man with a mysterious past.
