Welcome to Top 10 Tuesday! This is a weekly challenge hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and this week’s challenge is about books written before I was born.
I had so much fun with this one! Many of my favorite books were written long before I was born. I also frequently read books that aren’t recent releases because I tend to feel like I’ve missed out on books published either when I was too young to enjoy them or before I existed at all.

I considered dividing the lists by genre or by target audience (adult, young adult, children’s), but decided to go by format instead since a great book can be written for any audience and from any genre.

Of these two books, I finished Flowers for Algernon first and it was…
