"When I got to the next intersection, I paused at the stop sign and heard that slight rumble behind me again. A quick backward glance behind me revealed a large pickup truck moving toward me with its lights off. As I stared, the truck pulled over to the curb and sat there idling again, as if the driver didn't want to pass me before seeing which direction I was going to take." Kindle loc. 28-29%*

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 On My Winter TBR

*in no particular order

My Current Review Books:

1. A Curse Unbroken by Cecy Robson--soooo can't wait to get to this one! Read the latest one a few months ago and ready to dive back in!
2. Dearest by Alethea Kontis--ready for the next sister's story! Can't wait to see how this series all turns out!
3. Shutter by Courtney Alameda--this one sounded creepy and I love a good creepy read!

Books to Wait on:

4. Gathering Darkness by Morgan Rhodes--omg DYING for this one!! Cannot wait to read it in the coming weeks! Going to totally f-up my reading queue for this bad boy!
5. No Ghouls Allowed by Victoria Laurie--one of my fave mystery series ever! Cannot wait to see MJ and Gilley's next adventure!
6. Keeper of the Castle by Juliet Blackwell--a bit behind with her reads but still can't wait to read this one! Still need to read her summer release from her other series so I can read the crossover novella before reading this one! Yes, I am that weird!

7. Bound by Flames by Jeaniene Frost--more Vlad please! And then MORE Vlad please!! Yay 4 books!!
8. Shadow Study by Maria V. Snyder--so can't wait to read this one! Hoping Netgalley gets it because I need it asap!
9. Salt & Stone by Victoria Scott--still haven't gotten my ARC yet and I was told they'd go out in November and November is almost over!! I'd hate to email the pubs again, but I think I might have to come next Monday!

10. Willowgrove by Kathleen Peacock--after reading her tweets from last week regarding this book...I need it EVEN MORE!!!! I loooove this trilogy and while sad to see it end, I MUST know WHAT HAPPENS!!!!!!
