Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Books Without Romance

Top Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. and is currently being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is “Favorite Couples In Books.I could probably come up with tons of couples whom I absolutely love, but for this week’s topic, I’m going a completely different route. I’m listing ten of my favorite books that don’t have romance in them. This list was harder to put together than I thought it would be, which does means I need to reach for more books without romance. Always open to recommendations! Covers are linked to Goodreads.
