Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This Week’s Topic is Ten Books On My Spring TBR
For Spring specifically instead of just playing catch-up with everything I want to read books that shout “Spring” to me. These books are primarily travel books, almost half to Paris but a lot to Europe in general. So here’s my list of travel books I want to read this Spring that about travel and some that are just sorta about travel 🙂
