  1. This is a fun meme. I’m late to the party but am putting together a post to share later this weekend. I have a lot more than 10! 😉

  2. I haven’t read any of these, but quite a few are ones I hope to read. Every year I say I am going to read Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and I have still yet to do so. Maybe this will be the year. Thank you for sharing!

  3. George (I think the title has changed to Melissa, right?) and Bernadette are both good choices. I think my favorite with a character name in the title is Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine. Thinking about it still makes me smile.

    1. I hadn’t heard about George but I see that you’re right. I thought it was odd that the title was George when she wanted to be called Melissa. Thanks for letting me know! I’ll update my mentions of the book here on the blog.

      I’m glad to hear that you liked Eleanor Oliphant. It’s one of the books in my physical TBR stack, so I hope to get to it soon.

  4. I love the Bloody Jack series! I especially enjoy listening to them on audio. I’ve got a few left in the series, but I’m taking in slowly since I know there won’t be any more books. Boo hoo. It’s so sad when favorite authors die.

    Happy TTT!
