Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly topic hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provides a topic, and you are free to use that topic and/or variations of that topic to make your top ten list. A full list of the weekly themes can be found here.
Today’s topic is about atmospheric books, which for me are those types of books that suck you in. The type of books whose writing, setting, and characters all blend together to bring about a novel that pulls the reader in.
But before we get to my list of books I need everyone to be aware of the dire situation in Gaza. Hospitals are losing power, bombings are getting worse with each night that passes, and governments who have any kind of influence on Israel are refusing to push for a ceasefire. There are 5,000 Palestinians dead, including 2,000 children, while countless more are missing under rubble. Very little aid is being let in and not enough to sustain the population of 2.2 million who have lost or are losing access to food, fuel, water, and electricity. If you haven’t reached out to your representatives, I beg you to do so. If you are unsure of where to start, this Google Doc here has links where you can reach members of Congress if you are in the U.S.
