Top Ten Tuesday: Places

Top Ten Tuesday

This is my first  Top Tuesday listing and because I want to see if I can pull it off without thinking about it too much, my choice is LONDON!  Nobody who knows me will be surprised.

In the order in which they appear in my muddled brain, with no idea that I am rating them, I submit:

  1.  Dickens:  Bleak House
  2. Barbara Pym:  Excellent Women
  3. Elizabeth Taylor:  Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont
  4. Iris Murdoch:  A Fairly Honourable Defeat
  5. Zadie Smith:  White Teeth
  6. Virginia Woolf:   Mrs. Dalloway
  7. Muriel Spark:  Memento Mori
  8. Wordsworth:  “Composed upon Westminster Bridge”
  9. Percy B. Shelley: “London in 1819”
  10. William Blake:  “London”

runner-ups would have to include Sherlock Holmes stories, George Gissing’s novels, The Waste Land, and how could I have neglected Vanity Fair?

One thought on “Top Ten Tuesday: Places”

  1. I’m a Top Ten Tuesday fan–great list. Bleak House is definitely top of a London list. I’m an Edw Rutherford fan, so I would have also included his London on my list.
