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 Tuesday Freebie--Top Ten Favorite Covers for the Moment! (LOL! Will include old and new!)

*in no particular order

1. 13 to Life by Shannon Delany--as many of my older followers know, I was obsessed with this cover! LOL! So gorgeous!
2. Magic Study by Maria V. Snyder--the original hardcover one! This is the cover that I saw that pretty much got me hooked on her books!
3. Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout--this needs no explanation! ;)

4. Half Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout--looooved this cover that starts Jennifer's Covenant series! The purple is gorgeous and the flower is so pretty!
5. Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost--how awesome is this cover?! It screams Urban Fantasy and kick-assery!
6. Darkness Splintered by Keri Arthur--this is probably my fave cover in the series because Risa looks sooo cool with her wings! Angel covered books are usually hit or miss it seems!

8. With All My Soul by Rachel Vincent--my fave cover from the original set of Soul Screamers covers!!

  22. Interesting teaser. I've never read anything by Painter. Looks like I have another author to add to my never-ending list. Happy reading!

    LOved the back and forth in your teaser. Dying to see what the cover will look like!

    My TT -

  27. I've been seeing those books with “mail order bride” in the title on Amazon. Is it the fad these days like stepbrother romances?? I'm gonna watch out for that anyway since I'm a sucker when it comes to PNRs. When is it going to be released?

    This is my TT this week.

  28. LOL. I love that quote. It made me chuckle.

  29. I just grabbed Falling Kingdoms from the library last week. I feel like the last one to read it.

  30. Love so many of these covers! Half Blood is gorgeous and so is With All My Soul. Great list!
