Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, this week's topic: Top Ten Older Books That I Don't Want People to Forget About.

1.  Mary Stewart's Arthurian Saga

2.  The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton

3. To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis

4.  Tender is the Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald

5.  Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

6.  The Prince of Tides by Pat Conroy

7.  Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones

8.  Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks

9.  Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury...an often overlooked Bradbury book.

10.  Back Roads by Tawni O'Dell


  1. I haven't read any of these but I have Dandelion Wine, Years of Wonder, & Tender is the Night on my bookshelf. I read a Pat Conroy book a looong time ago and really enjoyed it so I'll have to look into that one. I also have heard great things about Kate Morton but never read anything!

  2. Wow, so many good books on this list. The Crystal Cave and Good Omens are especially good ones!

  3. I certainly hope The Forgotten Garden isn't forgotten. It's my favourite of Morton's books.

    Great list!

  4. I've heard of these but never read any of these books. I have them on my TBR pile for way later.

  5. I have an unread copy of The forgotten garden. And I've added the first series to my GR account. Thanks for sharing your lovely list!

  6. I am loving this list. I haven't really ever heard much about Dandelion Wine, but I'm definitely interested in reading it now. Mary Stewart's Arthurian books have been on my shelves for years - I really need to get to those soon!

  7. I love your choices! I've read more than half of them and they're so wonderful!

  8. Yay for Howl's! Have you read the sequels?

  9. Oh man, I still need to read Howl's Moving Castle.
