Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish where we get to make fun bookish lists!
This week’s topic is a broad one that revolves around characters who ____. So even though it’s technically fall now (YAY!) I thought I would do a wrap up of some of my favorite summer books where the characters have interesting and sometimes fun summer jobs!
I’m excited to see what other people decided to do this week!
Ready? Let’s go!
