Top 10 Tuesday — Back to School

30 Aug

Don’t know much about history, don’t know much about biology . . . ? Well, I’ve got some books for you! This week’s TTT is Back to School Freebie. I love Sam Cooke‘s song, What A Wonderful World This Would Be and always think about it when I hear back to school. My list today features books that fit the lyrics of this old school song (see what I did there? šŸ˜‰ ). There are 6 subjects listed in the lyrics, and I have come up with 2 books each. An even dozen of great books! Who cares if some of the books loosely fit the category — it’s all in fun! I hope you enjoy my list.

For more fun back to school lists, check out That Artsy Reader Girl.

    Math was one of my favorite subjects in school. I’ll definitely have to check out The Enchantress of Numbers and The Number of Love. They both sound fascinating. šŸ˜€

    I love the presentation of your list. I have only read The Kitchen Front which I really enjoyed. I wasn’t sure whether to put it on my list so didnt in the end.

    Have a great week!
