Happy Tuesday, reader friends! I’m a bit late linking up with That Artsy Reader Girl for Top Ten Tuesday (but I just wanted to read last night)! The topic this week is: “Books I’d Give Different Titles To (and tell us what title you’d pick!)” I’m sharing books with names instead! Here are ten-ish books with people’s proper names in the title!
