"The creature paused and lifted its nose, then looked over its shoulder, its eyes bloody fire in the darkness. I wondered if it had some sense of my presence, but it made no move to flee and, after a few more seconds, it turned and went through the door on the left.

Inside was a dead man." Kindle loc. 1%*

*Quote comes from the eARC, therefore it and its location are NOT final.

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: My Ten Favorite Top Ten Topics We've Ever Done In The Past 5 Years

*in no particular order

1. Characters I'd Like to Check In With
2. ALL TIME Favorite Authors

4. Authors I Own the Most Books From
5. Characters I'd Want With Me on a Deserted Island
6. Characters That Would Be Sitting at My Lunch Table 
7. Underrated Authors & Book Series in Urban Fantasy
8. Authors I've Read Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More
9. Places that Books Have Made Me Want to Visit (whether fictional or real)

  2. Sounds like she had a near miss. Interesting choice. I like the cover of this book. It's quite striking.

  3. First of all, Wicked Embers sounds awesome! I loved the lunch table topic, too! I totally forgot about the deserted island topic, it would have been on my list. Places books have made me want to visit was a face of mine as well. Great list!

    Michelle @ Michelle's Minions

    My TTT

  4. I loved the look and sound of the new Keri Arthur book, Wicked Embers, and would have requested it if I'd been able...... sometimes being in the UK sucks as it sounds like a great read!

  5. Okay so what was the creature? Who was dead? How do you pick teasers that make me want to one click all the time?

    Love the lunch table one, underrated authors and of course series I want to re-read.

    My Teaser

  6. Awesome list! I remember some of these of TTTs - particularly the all-time favourite authors and books/series I want to reread. :)

    My TTT

    Obsessive Compulsive Reader

  7. I remember Books I'll Probably Never Read. It felt good to write down War and Peace!

    Here's my Top Ten Top Tens!

  8. Wicked Embers looks really good.

    Great topics list! I haven't done most of those.

  9. We picked a lot of the same TTT topics!! :)

  10. It seems strange to like the Books I'll Never Read list as one of the top tens (it's on mine too), but it seems nice to just put it out in the open and say, "Hey, I'm never gonna read these books."
    Great teaser!

  11. I love this weeks topic, I'm getting to see so many topics that I have missed. You chose some brilliant topics :) Here's my TTT if you want to check it out :)

  12. Oh I bet anyone can guess what authors I own the most books of...hehe. Some great topics up there.

  13. Provocative teaser! I want to know more. The teaser on my adult blog this week comes from House of the Rising Sun by Kristen Painter - an urban fantasy. Happy reading!

  14. I enjoyed the Books I'll Never Read topic! I have some that I'm dead set against reading... Maybe I should give some of them a try!

    Here are my Top Ten!

  15. Great list!! Happy reading and thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment earlier today.

  16. Amazing teaser! I'm off to Amazon right now!

    Meredith @ A Book Lover's Corner

  18. Top Ten Books I'll Never Read was so close to making my list! Its definitely a runner-up (I apparently have a lot of books that I am a stick-in-the-mud about not reading...)

    My TTT.

  19. I love 5, 8 and 9 - I don't think I was around for those! You picked some of the best ones!
