Top Ten Tuesday: Passing time


Welcome to this week's edition of Top Ten Tuesday which is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week the topic is Books With a Unit of Time In the Title (seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, eternity, etc.) (Submitted by RS @ The Idealistic Daydream)

My plan is to work through the units, starting with a year and working down to seconds.

Year One by Nora Roberts - Starting with a year. 

Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks - It's only as I was putting this post together that I realise that both of these books are about plague or sickness.

Just One Year and Just One Day by Gayle Forman - I couldn't resist using both of these titles for this theme.

Midnight at the Blackbird Cafe by Heather Webber - After day comes night. Or does day come after night?

The Gilded Hour by Sara Donati - The next unit of time is hours.

The Distant Hours by Kate Morton - and hours

Eleven Hours by Paullina Simons - and more hours

10 Minutes 38 Seconds in This Strange World by Elif Shafak - moving down through the next two units!

Time and Chance by Sharon Penman - And time is what this theme was all about!

What books did you share for this week's prompt.


  1. Yours is a countdown, and that's especially nice.

  2. A friend of mine keeps telling me to read Year One. Maybe I should listen to all of the recommendations for it and jump in. :)

  3. Thats a great way of approaching this weeks theme.

    Here is my TTT


  4. Great choices for your list! I struggled this week. I love seeing everyone's choices and seeing what I missed when I was looking for titles with units of time in them.

  5. Great job! I struggled with this one, but managed to get a list put together!

  6. I like how you did this with the counting down. Very clever! I used THE GILDED HOUR on my list today, too.

    Happy TTT!

  7. I like Geraldine Brooks and I did read the Year of Wonders, liked it very much. Have never read a Donati book but the cover intrigues me. I am a sucker for a pretty cover.
    Kate Morton! Can't go wrong with any of her books, I love her. Wish she was more prolific but her novels are always worth waiting for. My favorites are The Forgotten Garden and The Secret Keeper.
