Meg opened her mouth and screamed." p 68

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.

  17. I really enjoyed Ten! Such a good book. Hope youre enjoying it :)

  18. YIkes! I'd scream too (and probably pass out.) I like the book's cover, and I'm wondering what that island has to do with the plot. I'd open the book to find out.
    My Teaser is from MILLSTONE.

  20. New follower, hi!
    I read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer but I honestly couldn't tell you a thing about it. I usually remember something about every book I've ever read but I just draw a blank with this one.

    ★ Under The Mountain's TTT ★

  21. Nice list! I haven't read any of those books myself; I'm not even familiar with half of them. I hope you enjoy your spring 2014 reads!

  22. Great list! I also want to read Dorothy Must Die and Don't Look Back. That teaser makes me want to read Ten, yikes, that sounds amazing!
    Cassi @ My Thoughts Literally

  23. Thanks for stopping by my TT post today. You know, I keep seeing that TEN book but when I looked at the general reviews, it didn't do that well. I'd love to know what you thought so I can decide whether or not to add it to my wishlist.
    Laura :)

  24. Ooh, creepy Teaser! Ten has been on my TBR for a while. I hope you're enjoying it. If I get to Shatter Me, hopefully the rest of the series (including Unravel Me) will follow soon. I have a friend who's reading the Mara Dyer series, and she's really loving it. I want to get to that one too. :D Great picks. Happy Tuesday!

  25. Dorothy Must Die looks so cool! And the Sea of Shadows cover is so pretty :)

    - Kritika @ Snowflakes & Spider Silk
