Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My TBR Written Before I Was Born

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to the Top Ten Tuesday now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week's topic is Books Written Before I Was Born (submitted by Davida Chazan @ The Chocolate Lady's Book Review Blog).  I've decided to focus my list this week to Books On My TBR Written Before I Was Born.  Without further ado, here we go in alphabetical order:

Batman: The Killing Joke by Alan Moore

The Color Purple by Alice Walker

The Crystal Cave (Arthurian Saga #1) by Mary Stewart

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (Dirk Gently #1) by Douglas Adams

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (Blade Runner #1) by Philip K. Dick





The Outlaws of Sherwood by Robin McKinley

Sherlock Holmes vs. Dracula (The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes) by Loren D. Estleman

Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut

  1. I've never read that Crystal cave series. Was always curious. I did read Do Androids dream a while back but I don't actually remember a lot about it...

    The McKinley series looks good too.

  9. Ohhh. The Killing Joke is still one of the best Joker focused graphic novels in my opinion.

  10. I wanted to include The Color Purple, but it wasn't old enough for me. It left an impression though. I almost included Flowers for Algernon. That book was heartbreaking.

  12. I've never read The Outlaws of Sherwood, but Robin McKinley's The Hero and the Crown made such an impression on me when I was a young teen.
