    1. It was so popular it spun off a bunch of other one-word titled book that I didn't read.

  7. Great choices! so many of these are my TBR but love that you included Persuasion. It's such an amazing story and so underrated.

    Here is my TTT: https://fangirlpixieblog.com/2020/03/03/top-ten-tuesday-9/

    1. I guess you'd better read FANGIRL since it is part of your blog title.

  8. Educated was such a good memoir, too.

    My TTT .

  9. I really liked Nimona and have been wanting to read Seraphina. I've heard great things about that one. :)

    1. It surprised me. I wasn't expecting it to be so touching.

  10. Fabulous list! I have Sadie on mine and can't believe I forgot Beartown. A lot of great books on here!

    My TTT!

  11. You had an easier time than I did with this. Fangirl is a great book.

  12. I need to read Becoming.

  13. The cover for that edition of Persuasion is adorable!
