"Travel had been less than kind to Abraham. He had a sort of rugged handsomeness about him, dark wavy hair above a broad face with piercing hazel eyes, and a strong jaw covered in scruff. But now the skin was yellow between the bruises that covered it. The stitches that held him together, crossing his face, neck, torso, arms, and legs, had nearly disintegrated in just a few hours. Loose threads poked up out of his skin like sun-seeking maggots in rotted fruit." p. 3*

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists!

This week's topic is: Top Ten Books I Can't Believe I Haven't/Want To Read From the Fantasy/Paranormal Genre
*in no particular order
1. Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen--SO want to read this one! Heard fantastic things and even lately more so! I NEED to read this! But of course i just got a stack of review books that require my attention first!
2. The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen--this one sounds incredible as well! I love a good fantasy read!
3. The Fairest of Them All by Carolyn Turgeon--heard about this one probably 2 years ago now and thought it sounded awesome! Such a combo of fairy tales and it begs for my attention!!
4. Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer--have had this since its release when I met Jodi and her daughter at my library. I've mixed reviews over the years, but I absolutely fascinated by the story! So I do really need to read it!
5. The Madness Underneath by Maureen Johnson--I can tell you exactly why I haven't read this one yet. And that's because I've read many reviews since its release that proclaim a terrible cliffhanger! So I've saved myself from one more devastation and a good thing too since the third book kept getting pushed back. But I can now read it! If only I could fit it in!
6. Night World Series by L.J. Smith--I've had ALL THREE compilations of this series since my beloved Borders closed their doors. I did read one of the books many, many years ago as a single edition. Still have it too...buried somewhere on my closet shelf of books.
7. Ashes to Ashes by Melissa C. Walker--this one sounded awesome! And I still haven't read it! It's a duology and the final installment releases this year finally! It's a ghost story and I always find those intriguing, because I think ghosts are hard to write as an MC at times!
8. Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier--have seen this trilogy around a lot! Hear mixed things on it, but I love the idea of time traveling, especially mixed with magic. I think this one mixes the two at least! Sounds awesome! I have all three, though the third is in ARC format which may have to be updated to hardcover because the hardcovers are SO LOVELY!
9. Switched by Amanda Hocking--I've had this TRILOGY on the TBR Mountain of Doom for a good long while now too! These were among the first books to help form the Mountain! And now there's a new spinoff trilogy out! So I'm wayyy behind!
10. No Ghouls Allowed by Victoria Laurie--though not an old book, in fact it just released this month! I can't believe I haven't read it yet because this is one of my favorite series and Victoria is one of my favorite paranormal mystery authors! Since I'm in a bind without a job, I would like to see if I could still devour it in a day! Might have to muck up the reading queue I had planned out in my head for this puppy!
