Teaser & Top Ten Tuesdays

Here are the rules:
1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a page
3. Pick out 2 lines that are SPOILER FREE
4. Name the title, author, etc.

Finally reading Shatter Me! It's a bit of struggle so far. Juliette is definitely a damaged heroine, but she does have her moments, like in this one...

"'I like my clothes,' I tell him. I'd like to punch you in the eye, is what I don't tell him." p 75

TITLE: Shatter Me
AUTHOR: Tahereh Mafi

GENRE: Dystopian YA
RELEASE DATE: November 15, 2011

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

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! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

This week's topic is: Top Ten Reasons I Love Being A Blogger/Reader

*in no particular order

 1. Books! Love getting review books, love talking about books! Anything book related goes!
2. The Community! Love finally having people who share my love of reading, especially paranormal books!
3. Reviews! Love writing them and reading them!

4. Making friends! I've made so many new blogger friends and it's just been incredible!
5. Meeting authors! Even meeting new authors! Of course I met Maria V. Snyder before blogging, but the idea is still the same!
6. Excitement! Who else can I get excited about books over with than my blogging pals in the blogging world!

7. Learning about new books from other bloggers! Be they NEW or new to me books!
8. Learning about new authors! Such as Danielle Paige and the upcoming, awesomely new Dorothy Must Die!!
9. Sharing the love! Truly, bloggers are some of the nicest people ever! I can't count the times how many of my blogging pals loaned me their ARC of a book I wanted to read and they let me borrow it by mailing it! And of course there's all the contests we bloggers are always doing on our own part! That's a lot of love going around and I love that!

10. Because blogging is fun!
