Top Ten Tuesday: Trees

Welcome to this week's edition of Top Ten Tuesday which is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Covers/Titles with Things Found in Nature (covers/titles with things like trees, flowers, animals, forests, bodies of water, etc. on/in them) (Submitted by Jessica @ a GREAT read) I am choosing to focus on trees for my post!

At the Foot of the Cherry Tree by Alli Parker - Listened to this on audio this year and it was really good! It is a fictionalised story of how her grandparents met just after WWII in Japan.

The Flame Tree by Siobhan Daiko - If you are looking for a WWII story set in the Pacific theatre of war, then this could be a good option.

Island of Missing Trees by Elif Shafak - This was one of my favourite reads of 2022.

Under the Christmas Tree by Robyn Carr - This is part of the Virgin River series.

The Drowning Tree by Carol Goodman - I have read a number of this author's books but it has been a while.

Family Tree by Barbara Delinsky - I don't remember anything about this book. To be fair, I did read it back in 2008.

The Red Tree by Shaun Tan - This is another author I haven't read for a long time.

The Persimmon Tree by Bryce Courtenay - I often think about the love story in this book.

Apple Tree Yard by Louise Doughty - I have had this book sitting on my shelf for a couple of years now.

The Cedar Tree by Nicole Alexander - This is one that has been sitting on my Kindle for a while! The description does sound good.


  1. There are so many books with trees in the title and mine are all different from yours!

  2. The Red Tree has such a cool cover.

    Here is my Top Ten Tuesday post.


  3. Love the cover for The Cedar Tree!

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

  4. You picked some great covers!! Have a good week!

  5. I have At the Foot of the Cherry Tree - really need to find time to read it at some stage.

  6. The first two books on your list have caught my attention! I also focused on trees this week.

    Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!

  7. Nice! I love trees :)

    Happy TTT!

  8. I like your covers, especially the first two. So pretty.

  9. I listened to The Island of Missing Trees last summer and enjoyed the story and it made me learn more about Cyprus and the war there. The author has a new novel coming out in August.

  10. I remember Family Tree primarily because it was so dramatic - the heroine gave birth to a black baby and her husband and his family all assumed she'd had an affair but really she was an orphan and did not know she had black ancestry. I think it ended unhappily.
