Top Ten Tuesday: All Time Favourite Books in Pulp Fiction

Posted March 11, 2014 by Michael @ Knowledge Lost in Top Ten Tuesday / 8 Comments

toptentuesdayIt’s Tuesday again which means time for another round of Top Ten Tuesday; I like joining in on this meme because I have a set topic to work with. Top Ten Tuesday is a book blogger meme that is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week the theme is: Top Ten All Time Favourite Books in Pulp Fiction. I wanted to do something a little different to others and still use a genre that means a lot to me. When referring to Pulp, I’m referring to Hard-Boiled and Noir crime novels. If you need an introduction to these genres, there are some brilliant guest posts on this blog by blahblahblahtoby that breaks down Pulp Fiction into The 1930’s – 1940’sThe 1950’sThe 1960’s – 1980’sThe 1990’s – Onwards.

  • Red Harvest by Dashiell Hammett
  • The Black Dahlia by James Ellroy
  • The Long Goodbye by Raymond Chandler
  • The Postman Always Rings Twice by James M. Cain
  • They Shoot Horses Don’t They? by Horace McCoy

    Great topic and choice of books this week! 🙂 I haven’t read any of these titles but some of them are familiar to me (The Black Dahlia, March Violets).

    I really like this list Michael. I spotted another book I’d like to read – They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?
