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 I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing This Year

*in no particular order

THE ARCs I wish He'd Bring:

1. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas--especially after seeing nearly ALL my blogging pals get this one last week, I am even more eager to read it!
2. Bound by Flames by Jeaniene Frost--almost out, so hoping maybe Santa could help me win the contest going to win it a few weeks early!
3. The Forgotten Crown by Julie Kagawa--need I say more?

4. Every Last Breath by Jennifer L. Armentrout--words needed? I think not!
5. The Return by Jennifer L. Armentrout--more JLA...more words not necessary!

Other Books Out:

6. A Shade of Blood by Bella Forrest--one I will likely have to buy myself!
7. Through the Woods by Emily Carroll--one I told my bestie to get me!
8. Welcome to the Dark House by Laurie Faria Stolarz--another I wrote my bestie about!

9. The Thousand Dollar Tan Lie by Rob Thomas and Jennifer Graham--I need to finish watching the series and movie and then I am sooo ready for more! LOL
10. Persephone by Kaitlin Bevis--ironically a looong while back I was offered to review it, but I passed because I was overwhelmed at the time but now I really want to read it!


  1. I am liking the teaser. Reading a sin? Or is what she's reading a sin? Hmmm...I'm intrigued either way.
