Today’s Top Ten Tuesday’s theme is “Top Ten Books with X Setting”, and we can choose what X is, as suggested by The Broke and the Bookish.
Since most books that I read are set in the United States, and that is such a broad topic, I decided to split today’s theme into Five books set on an Island and Five books set in England.
Five Books Set on an Island:
This is not one of my favorite stories, but it’s also not terrible. It is a classic and has some very interesting things to think about.
I hated this story, even though it is most likely an accurate account of what it would be like to abandon male children on an island with no guidance or teaching of spiritual things or morals. Therefore, left to their own devices and selfish/self-centered and sinful nature, this is most likely quite accurate. However, I found the things that they did sickening and disgusting.
This book is quite interesting, but also quite sad in many ways.
I found this book interesting but felt that it was missing many details.
This is by far my favorite of the island stories I have listed.
Now for the Five Books Set in England, which I like much more than the island books:
This is a wonderful story, a sort of female Robin Hood story, filled with adventure.
This was my first, and so far only, steampunk read, and I loved it. The rest of this series is on my TBR list.
A modern day twist on a fairy tale. I enjoyed this story.
This is one of my favorite Christmas stories.
I do love Dickens! I don’t think I’ve ever really read this book, but I have seen a wonderful theatrical drama version, and my youngest son and I are currently listening to a radio drama broadcast of it on Saturday mornings.
