The adorable Erin @ Raised Reading did a fun meme awhile back. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to tweak it and use it for a series of Top Five Tuesday posts. I’m going to attempt a top five bookish list for all 26 letters of the alphabet (this could get a little dicey towards the end!).
Other posts in this series:
Picture Book – Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown
Middle Grade Book – The Giver by Lois Lowry
YA or Adult Book – Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
TBR – The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti
Author – William Goldman

The Good Thief looks intriguing and huzzah for William Goldman!
I’m kind of surprised you’re interested in The Good Thief – it’s described as Dickinsian. 😛
Bert gave me a beautiful 40th anniversary hardback of The Princess Bride for my birthday, so I REALLY need to re-read it! I’ve got it on my TBR for this summer.
Full disclosure: I have only watched the film, not read the book. Perhaps I ought to do that, eh? ;p
Oh, no! Dickensian?! I didn’t read that on the Goodreads description. I may just pass then…
IMHO, The Princess Bride is one of those rare instances where the book and film are equally good, even though the film leaves a lot out. I think this is due to the fact that Goldman is a screenwriter and wrote the screenplay of his own book. Highly recommended reading!
Goodreads doesn’t say Dickinsian, but I’ve read that in other places, which, of course, I can’t find now. 😛
Dicey, indeed! Good luck.
I’ve heard a lot about The Book Thief, but haven’t gotten around to it yet.
My Teaser Tuesday this week is from the classic French mystery Fantômas: http://wp.me/pZnGI-h0
I’ve already got most of these posts mapped out, and I definitely have to fudge a little starting with Q. 😉
The Book Thief is on my TBR as well (I even own a copy), but the book listed above is The Good Thief, which I honestly haven’t hearda lot about.
I love the idea of Teaser Tuesday, but I already have so much planned on Tuesdays. Instead, I often post snippets from my current reads on Wordsmitten Wednesday. 😀
So it is. Just goes to show my brain reads what it thinks is there, lol.
Haha, they ARE very similar titles. 😀
