The topic this week is: NUMBERS. I'm super late getting this posted, but it seemed like too much fun to miss. So without further ado, here are ten books I've enjoyed that have titles with numbers. Condensed descriptions from Goodreads, except for the bread cookbook, which is really just a bread cookbook that I like.

The Seventh Wish
Charlie feels like she's always coming in last. From her Mom's new job to her sister's life at college, everything seems more important than Charlie.

The Eighth Day

In Nine Horses, Billy Collins, America's Poet Laureate for 2001-2003, continues his delicate negotiation between the clear and the mysterious, the comic and the elegiac.
Ten Days a Madwoman
Young Nellie Bly had ambitious goals, especially for a woman at the end of the nineteenth century, when the few female journalists were relegated to writing columns about cleaning or fashion.
