8. Chick Lit
My guilty pleasure 🙂

There are so many of these!

Have you read A Dog’s Purpose or A Dog’s Journey by W. Bruce Cameron? They are FABULOUS dog books but you will NEED tissues!
I agree with a lot of these. I love books at the beach and chick-lit. And Myths, magic, and the 20s, too. Great list!
Here’s my TTT
If you love the 1920s, definitely read The Diviners by Libba Bray. That’s set in the 1920s in New York City, but it has a paranormal element to it that’s awesome. I also LOVE wizard books XD
I’d love to read more books set in the 1920s! 🙂 My TTT list: http://aliceinreaderland.com/2013/04/29/topicsword/

Well…I would have put historical at the top! lol 🙂
I love historical fiction- but what I found doing this list, is that there are so many books that fall into many categories!
I write historical (that’s really why I said that) 🙂
Ah books about books! That’s a great one!
I’m so with you on 1920s books! I also love anything that merges fantasy and reality.
My twitter bio says: “A lost soul from the 1920’s” 🙂 So YES for boks from that era! 🙂
