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 Which Feature Characters Who Have Magical Abilities

*in no particular order

1. YELENA from Maria Snyder's Study Series--girl's got talent! It was expounded upon. I LOVE this series!!
2. SAVANNAH from Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld Series--true, there are lots of witches and magically talented people in this series, but Savannah was always one of my faves! Such a spunky attitude!
3. KATE from Marianne Curley's Old Magic--one of my all time faves! Kate was the quiet kind of girl in class but she wields wicked powers! And her grandmother, I believe it was, is even more powerful! So super cool!

4. LILY from Juliet Blackwell's Witchcraft Mystery Series--a naturally talented witch! Love this series and Lily's knack for solving mysteries and using her witchy ways!
5. CHLOE from Kelley Armstrong's Darkest Powers Trilogy--Chloe while not a witch, is still a pretty powerful nercromancer! She and all her friends are talented in their own way!
6. CLEO from Morgan Rhodes' Falling Kingdoms Series--this series is truly filled with powerful people. Cleo may not have magical abilities herself, but I feel like she's pretty powerful in her own right! Then of course, there's Lucia who is capable of magical powers!

7. MEG from Anne Bishop's Other Series--Meg is a powerful cassandra sangue. And she's also powerful in the sense that she was able to change a community of Others into accepting her, which was a pretty brave feat.
8. RACHEL MORGAN from Kim Harrison's Hollow Series--Rachel is a powerful witch, so enough said really! She makes mistakes but she owns up to them and can pretty much always set things right.
9. LAYLA from Jennifer Armentrout's Dark Elements Trilogy--Layla is powerful! So powerful people fear her. She's definitely a force to be reckoned with and I SO cannot wait for the final book!

10. EVERYONE from the Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling--who to choose?! There are sooooo many characters to choose from! It's impossible!


  1. I've got to read and Alyssa Rose Ivy book!

    OLD MAGIC! I loved The Summoning. I need to read The Falling Kingdoms series, I've been meaning to for a long time. I have the first book but I can't find it. I think I'm going to have to buy a new copy (I'm sure I'll find mine as soon as I finish reading the new one, lol). Great list, gotta have Harry Potter on it!

    My TTT

  2. Loneliness and isolation. I'm not particularly fond of either of those.

  3. I want to read Savor so badly! Jared needs a happy ending. I love love love the Darkest Powers Trilogy!

  4. I just saw Old Magic translated to Finnish in the library last night.... I knew I should have picked it up. I might have to go back now after seeing it on this list.

  5. Fabulous choices for the Top Ten Tuesday and I have to say that Savor sounds quite intriguing!
