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 Books or Series I Want To Reread

*in no particular order

1. Study Trilogy by Maria V. Snyder--yes I'd want to reread this whole trilogy-soon-to-be-more series! Loved it and just can't wait for more!
2. Crave Duology by Laura J. Burns & Melinda Metz--a duology I can just vaguely remember really enjoying! More vampires but I liked the way these authors wrote them! Had a great love story too!
3. Old Magic by Marianne Curley--a standalone but one of my all time faves! I did reread this one a bit during my teen years but would love to have time to read it again!

4. Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning--love this series! So naturally I'd reread it again if I could! Still need to read Iced though!
5. Night Huntress Series by Jeaniene Frost--adored this series! Fell soooo in love with all the characters, the storyline...yeah, I'd definitely reread it if I had time!
6. Shifters Series by Rachel Vincent--another incredible series! This one brought along soooo many emotions! I'd relive them all again and not have any pesky waiting in between in a heartbeat!

7. The Forbidden Game Trilogy by L.J. Smith--loved this series! This was my first L.J. Smith read! Found this before I did Vampire Diaries. Loved it! 
8. The Gardella Vampire Chronicles by Colleen Gleason--another series I really loved! Probably my first paranormal historical fiction series I read! And loved! It was soooo awesome! I was happy to see a spinoff, but so far it kind of stalled out with just 1 book. Hoping for more though!
9. Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout--Daemon from the beginning? Need I say more? Though he was a jerk in the first one, but I still laugh out loud when Katy dumped the spaghetti on his head! Never gets old!

10. Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead--yes let's reread this series from the beginning nonstop! No tortuous waiting between books! I mean really, after Shadow's Kiss I about died after each end until the final book!


  1. That's quite a cute tease. I love the reference to Scooby Doo... one of my kids favorite shows.

  2. I think we really got the same taste in books. What a great top 10.
    And the study trilogy should be on my top 10 as well. But there where no more places. =(

    My top 10

  3. Gotta laugh when the teaser mentions Scooby!

  4. Great list of rereads! :D Not a big fan of the Study trilogy (soon to be a series) but I did enjoy Lux series. And I need to go back and reread Vampire Academy series from the beginning too!

  5. Very nice teaser, Jessica :) I'll be looking for your review once you finish reading it.

    Your list of re-reads is great, too! I love many of the same series, alas too many new books to read for me to actually be able to read books more than once :(

    Thanks for stopping by earlier. Have a terrific Tuesday.

  6. Fun tease, Jessica. I've read one Lucienne Diver book before and it was fun as well. I'll have to pick up something from her again sometime. And your re-read list is fantastic. I say YES to Shifters, Fever, Lux, Night Huntress, and Vampire Academy!! Thanks for sharing!

  7. If Scooby says it it must be true. Nice tease- love love love your re-read list. We aught to do it this summer- a re-read-athon for the Shifters or Vampire Academy.

  8. Oh, The Study trilogy.... great series and I'm thrilled to hear about the new book, very exciting stuff!

  9. I have wanted to read the Fever series for years and just haven't gotten around to it for some reason. If it's on your reread list then I guess I should hurry up and read it! Thanks for sharing :)

    Here are my Top Ten!

  10. Yes, you picked some killer choices (both literally and figuratively, haha). I love any book with great romance, so your whole list seems great for rereads.

  11. The Lux series was fantastic. I could definitely see myself reading it again. Loved Poison Study as well!
    Monique @ Mo_Books

  12. Very good teaser. Here is my TT

  13. Love the teaser! That's so fun. I just recently re-read The Fever Series and I really need to get fully caught up on The Night Huntress Series. Great choices there :D Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.

  14. Love the reference to Scooby Do in your Teaser!
    My Tuesday post features a mystery by Tony Hillerman: THE BLESSING WAY.

  15. The Lux Series! Seeing it here reminds me that I need to continue that series. I've only read Obsidian, which I really enjoyed, so really I have ZERO excuses for why I haven't continued on with it. Except for the whole SO MANY BOOKS problem I have. ;) Great list!

  16. That's said Scooby Doo. I love that. Great teaser! Here's my TT.

  17. I love the sound of this teaser! I get quite a lot of my knowledge from popular culture, so I would probably be in the same position as this protagonist here! I really want to read the Vampire Academy books, but never have gotten to it! Thanks for stopping by :) Have a good weekend!

  18. I love VA series and maybe someday I´ll reread them. Nice list.
    Here is My Top 10 Tuesday

  19. I would really love to have time to re-read favorite series. I am so used to over-committing myself with review books that I just don't have time. Enjoy your re-reads and happy reading!

  20. I'd love to reread the Lux series at some stage! And the Study series! It'll be so awesome to continue on with Shadow Study, soon! Great list, Jessica!

  21. And we all know Scooby knows his stuff. LOL Sounds fun.
    That's an impressive bunch of books. I spy a couple I'd like.
    here's my TT -

  22. Oh geez, I haven't read any of these! I did hear the study series was becoming more than a trilogy so maybe I will check that out and read it all when the next book comes out. It looks good! Also I loved your comment on my post about how Harry is a given! So true.
    Cassi @ My Thoughts Literally

  23. Oooh, sounds pretty cool. I love when paranormal stories deal with lesser known creatures like a Banshee. Great pick!!

    Here are My Teasers.

  24. Great list! I have to read Obsidian and Vampire Academy the first time before I can re-read them. LOL. But they're both on my TBR list. Great teaser too. Love it. :D Thanks for stopping by my blog! Happy Tuesday!

  25. Ooooh I really enjoyed Poison Study. I haven't heard of the others though.

    - Kritika @ Snowflakes & Spider silk

  26. I read Old Magic years ago and remember really liking it! I don't still have it, but that's a good one to reread! And it would be quick, since if I recall correctly, it wasn't a very long book.
    I haven't read Vampire Academy yet, but its on my shelf at home! I'd love to do a read along with you, if you're interested! I know it would be a first time for me, and a reread for you, but I think it would be fun! (:

  27. Great teasers!! I've never heard of this book before, but by your teasers, I definitely need to check it out! I hope your enjoying it! :)

    Thanks for stopping by my TT @ Addicted Readers! :)

  28. Ooo I love a good banshee story!

    And I've only read one book from your top ten (Fever series). Blah, I need to read more UF!

  29. Oooh... love that tease, I hope you are enjoying that book.
    Nice top 10 too..... yes to SNYDER, FROST, VINCENT, ARMENTROUT, MEAD!!

    Thanx for visiting my TT
    Naomi @ Nomi’s Paranormal Palace

  30. Yes, if only we had the time :) Great list! And I did reread a few of the Night Huntress books last year before I catched up with the series ;)

  31. Surprise surprise, I still need to read the Study series, but I will one of these days :D

  32. Oh yes! Obsidian is awesome!That would have made my list but I re-read it recently lol, And a big yes for VA! I am dying to re-read those books. Great list!
