Top Ten Tuesday #19 - London... But Not As We Know It

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely people at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is -

I sat here for ages trying to think of something that would be at least fairly original, the proverbial lightning bolt struck and here's what I came up with :)

London... But Not As We Know It!

The Bone Season - Samantha Shannon

Neverwhere - Neil Gaiman

Un Lun Dun - China Mieville

Rivers of London - Ben Aaronovitch

The City's Son - Tom Pollock

A Madness of Angels - Kate Griffin

Soulless - Gail Carriger

Something From the Nightside - Simon R Green

Midnight Never Come - Marie Brennan

God Save The Queen - Kate Locke

  1. I love that you went with London as a topic! I wanted to make my list of books set in Victorian England, but couldn't come up with 10, so I went with Europe. I have Soulless on my list too, and God Save the Queen is on my to-read shelf at home, I still need to read it.

  10. I loved the way Samantha Shannon did Oxford and London in The Bone Season, so much so that I asked her to do a guest post for this exact topic. That's coming sometime in September, I think. :D Great choices!
