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: Ten Books You Recently Added To Your To-Be-Read List

*in no particular order

1. Dreamfire by Kit Alloway--seeing this one around recently, so I already placed an order over the weekend!
2. Earth & Sky by Megan Crewe--was curious about this one and after I read a review I was sold! Just need to get it!
3. Alienated by Melissa Landers--another one I was hesitant about, but then, again, another recent review convinced me I need to get it asap!

4. Shadows by Paula Weston--have seen this series around lately, and suddenly curious to try it out!!
5. A Shade of Blood by Bella Forrest--I read the first in this series so long ago! I really need to get to the rest of this series! It's still going strong too!
6. Dream a Little Dream by Kerstin Gier--I still need to read her Ruby Red trilogy but seeing this one around a bit lately and once again, find myself intrigued with the author and her books!

7. Garden of Dreams and Desires by Kirsten Painter--one that I just added this past week! Need to get to it soon too!
8. Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris--another one that I literally added to the pile last week! It was offered to me for review, so I went for it!
9. Welcome to the Dark House by Laurie Faria Stolarz--yet another one that was legitimately added to the pile! Cannot wait to read this one! Plus her other series I have yet to start!

10. The Glass Arrow by Kristen Simmons--another recent addition to the TBR Mountain of Doom! Read too many good reviews on this, so I kind of went on binge shopping spree the past few weeks!


  1. The Glass Arrow <3 !!!! You'll love Earth & Sky and Welcome to the Dark House, they remind me of old school YA. Dreamfire and Dream a Little Dream have been in my tbr pile for a while, the both sound great. I still need to read Alienated! Awesome list!

  2. Ooh I love the cover of Ice Kissed. Sounds like a good read as well :)

    My TT

  3. I just finished The Glass Arrow. Very disappointing, to say the least. But there are a few others of your new additions that are my additions as well :)

  4. Loved the teaser for Ice Kissed today- haven't read this series yet. I want to just haven't made it there. For the first time ever, I have not read a single book in your top ten. Will be waiting on reviews though.

    My Teaser

  5. Alienated is definitely worth reading!! I haven't read any of the others but Glass Arrow is one that I really want to read :)

  8. Great choice for your teaser! Sounds like she might be in danger of drowning?
    And love your choice of books. I have several of them too:)

    My TT -

  9. Great teaser! You must really be liking this author and her books as you have plowed right through them. I just realized the other day that I have her first two that I bought long time ago from B&N but didn't have a nook at the time so forgot I had them..looking through the reads on my nook yesterday and found I might have to give them a try. :)

  10. A few of these are on my list! I really want to read The Dark House!! It looks so creepy! I hope you get to read all of these! :)

    Here are my Top Ten!

  11. Great list full of some great sounding books, and a few I need to look up as I haven't heard of them!

  12. There's a ton of pretty covers there! I have Shadows on my shelf, but haven't read it yet.

    TTT @ Krista's Dust Jacket

  13. Great teaser and I like that list! Here is my TT

  14. I love the cover of Ice Kissed! I hope she's ok! Sounds like she might freeze :( Great teaser! Here's mine. Happy reading!

  15. I'm totally obsessed with the cover of Dream A Little Dream. And as I'm sure you know, that isn't my normal type of read so I'll probably never read it. Boo. :( I wish I could frame that cover for my wall. LOL Enjoy!

  16. Good teaser and what a beautiful cover. "Midnight Crossroad" is on my TBR list. Mine: Accused by Lisa Scottoline

  17. What a great tease! I need to read A Shade of Blood too so I can continue with the series. It does feel like forever ago that I read the first one. Great list :D

  18. Nice list of books this week!! I won a free copy of Earth & Sky through Goodreads First Reads program and just need to make time to read it.

  19. Beautiful cover. I'm curious.
    My Tuesday post features THE ROSIE PROJECT.

  20. I was going to start doing the top 10 but I couldn't make mind up on what books to use lol.

  21. I'll be curious to see what you think of the new Harris book and Glass Arrow sounds really good too!

  22. I liked Dream a Little Dream better than the Ruby Red Trilogy. They are completely separate story lines. No need to read Ruby Red first. I liked Midnight Crossroad too. I was turned down to review the second book but I already bought a copy and will have it on my Kindle when it releases. Happy reading!

  23. Alienated and Earth and Sky didn't make my list this week, but I think they're both on my TBR. Hopefully I'll get to them eventually. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. Happy Tuesday!

  24. I actually really enjoyed Alienated when I read it. (Which surprised me) But I still need to get to the sequel, Invaded. Hoping that'll happen soon.

    And Dream a little Dream's cover is so prety!

  25. I'm really excited for Dream a Little Dream! I still need to read Emerald Green, the last book of the Ruby Red trilogy. I hope you enjoy these books! Old follower!
