Top Ten Tuesday: Lighthouses and Sailing Ships

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Click on the link for more info and to find out about future topics.

This week’s theme is:  Freebie AKA Lighthouses and Sailing Ships

This week on Top Ten Tuesday we can choose our own topic, so here is ‘Lighthouses and Sailing Ships’, a post in which I gather together a selection of books based on either of these themes, whether as a main feature or a passing scene.
I decided on this theme when I noticed that many of the books that have recently caught my attention featured either lighthouses or ships.

I’ve read three of these, and linked to my reviews where possible (marked with a*), and have even included a non-fiction title this week, which is very rare. On to the books…


The Lamplighters by Emma Stonex

The Lighthouse Witches by C. J. Cooke

The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow*

Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane – Read this in my pre-blogging days so no review unfortunately.

The Kingdoms by Natasha Pulley

Erebus: The Story of a Ship by Michael Palin

Temeraire by Naomi Novik

The Bone Ships by R. J. Barker

Ship of Magic by Robin Hobb

The Devil and the Dark Water by Stuart Turton*

So, what did you write about this week?
See you again next time for another Top Ten Tuesday.
