This is my very first time to join Stasha at The Good Life for Monday Listicles.  I am so excited about finding this really fun Monday linkup.

This week's promt is:  10 Books.  It could be interpreted any way desired.  I decided to go with:

8.  The Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett

9.  Misty of Chincoteague by Marguerite Henry

10.  Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh

I had so much fun thinking back about these books and even called my Mom to look on my bookshelf in my room at "home".  There were a couple I had completely forgotten about.

What a trip down memory lane...

Next week's Listicle is a choice of either:

#1 – list 10 things you really like about yourself, things you are good at, your super powers!


#2 – You have 48 hours free of all responsibilities and unlimited cash, what 10 things would you do, places you’d go, etc.

Have fun!
