    These are hard, but fun!
    #5 – from Oprah’s bookclub
    These are wild guesses…
    #3 – northern setting or winter
    #8 – Christmas or winter setting
    #9 – foreign country
    #10 – poor families
    #2 – classics, female authors

    3 & 8 are so very close, but need one little extra thing.
