  1. I thought this might be another Top Ten Tuesday but your idea of publishing this list is also great. I have read "Less" which I didn't care for much. And I've read another book by Sarah Waters. But I love Rita Mae Brown, must put "Rubyfruit Jungle" on my list.

    My TTT this week.

    1. Less was my least favorite read of the ten books listed above, but I added it to the list as Less received the Pulitzer Prize.

    2. That's the reason I read it. I usually love the Pulitzer Prize winnerl but this was my least favourite for ages.

    3. Yes, I read Less too when I learned it had won the Pulitzer Prize... Plus, I was trying to diversify my reading by reading books by new to me authors as well.

    4. That is one of the reason I like to read winners of prestigiuos prizes, they are often new to me. This one was disappointing.

    5. Yes, it's always disappointing when I read a novel by a new to me author that has won a literary prize and the novel isn't that good. One feels let down by the writing for whatever reason... Maybe it's because of the books hype by other readers OR just the expectation that the novel is going to be wonderful because it's won a prestigious literary award.

    6. It is indeed. I hadn`t heard much about the book when I bought it, just that it won the Pulitzer Prize. That's usually good enough for me. But in this case, I had the feeling it was more the subject they awarded the prize rather than the story, the writing, the style ...

  2. I've only read the Greer book from your list, but several of the others intrigue me and are on my list of "maybe I'll read this when I get to it!"

    1. Seems like the Greer has been a popular book to read with most people I've encountered. Maybe because Greer's novel, Less, won the 2018 Pulitzer Prize?
