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 I Plan To Have In My Beach Bag This Summer

*in no particular order


1. EVERY LAST BREATH by Jennifer L. Armentrout--cause heck yeah!
2. A BOOK OF SPIRITS AND THIEVES by Morgan Rhodes--one step closer to returning to Mytica and all my fave characters and plot twists! This one will definitely be exciting! I can tell already!
3. REAWAKENED by Colleen Houck--dying for a new read from Colleen since I binged the Tiger's Curse Saga and I am still not so patiently waiting for Kishan's books!

4. THE HEART OF BETRAYAL by Mary E. Pearson--almost let this slip past me in my excitement of summer reads! YIKES! Soooo cannot wait to read this one!
5. THE STARS NEVER RISE by Rachel Vincent--have been looking forward to a NEW Rachel Vincent read since the initial end of Soul Screamers!


6. THE RETURN by Jennifer L. Armentrout--yes I still need to read this one! Still trying to catch up on review books! Every time I am almost done a few more come in! Sigh...
7. SEVENTH GRAVE AND NO BODY by Darynda Jones--coincidental arrangement, I swear! Still need to read this one but then I can binge 7 & 8!
8. THE WICKED WILL RISE by Danielle Paige--still want to read The Wizard Returns first but so looking forward to returning to this world again!

9. THE WRATH AND THE DAWN by Renee Ahdieh--reading amazing reviews and cannot wait to read it myself!
10. END OF DAYS by Susan Ee--sadden to read a series finale, but yet, it's been soooo long! Dying to see how it all ends for Penryn!



  1. Oooh the new releases look good! And the teaser for Pure Blooded makes my eyebrow rise too. :)

    My TT

  2. Nice selection! I can't wait to read Reawakened! I love books with Egyptian mythology. Of course I'm super excited to get my hands on The Stars Never Rise. I'm hoping to read The Wrath and the Dawn soon, too. Good luck getting these read!

    Ah, beach bag. It's winter here so I'll have to go with the cozy fire. My picks would be, Every Last Breath, The Stars Never Rise and End of Days. I loved The Return. Hope you do too.

  5. Oh my goodness! I started Pure Blooded last night and know where this tease is! Great teaser! I so want to read Every Last Breath, The Stars Never Rise and the Heart of the Betrayal.

    My Teaser

  6. Great list and many books I want to read myself! I'm currently reading The Return (I'm late reading it too!) and while I've only read the first couple of chapters it's already grabbed me hard and it's my first Armentrout read too!

  28. Great list! I love JLA and I've heard that The Wrath and The Dawn is a really good read. Thanks for stopping by earlier.

  29. Omigoodness, that's a great tease, Jessica. It has me curious for sure! I like your beach bag list as well. Guess what I got at RT? The Stars Never Rise!! *squee* It's going in my beach bag, too! :)

  30. Definitely The Wrath and the Dawn. I would also have Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen. I would have Dorothy Must Die, Asylum, Rebel Belle, and Off the Page.

  31. I love your quote, Jessica, a little bit mysterious and definitely enticing ;)

    I agree about most of your new releases - all the ones I've heard about, I guess I have to check out those that are unknown to me so far.

    Have a great rest of the week and happy reading.
