"I grinned, and yanked the hanging back, revealing the hidden door behind it. It stood slightly ajar, held open by a bronze spaniel someone had place in the crack as a doorstop. An enormous padlock splayed open and dangled from its hasp.

Please. I prayed as I grasped the crystal door knob. Please don't let this be the room where they hide the deformed cannibal cousin. 'Cause it's just too damn early for that." Kindle loc. 13%*

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 2016 Debuts Novels That "Caught My Attention"

*in no particular order 
**So apparently I don't really have that many. Basically with debuts I tend to wait until reviews come in before making a final decision. Though there are always the occasion debut that I look forward to on my own!

1. FEAR THE DROWNING DEEP by Sarah Glenn Marsh--this sounds intriguing, part mystery and part witchy!
2. INTO THE DIM by Janet B. Taylor--partially cheating since I am reading it already! LOL. But it involves time traveling which pretty much has my attention!
3. BURNING GLASS by Kathryn Purdie--this is yet another one that just sounds intriguing!

4. BLACKHEARTS by Nicole Castroman--a Blackbeard tale? Sounds promising!
5. THE READER by Traci Chee--sounds a bit intriguing but still not sure if it's for me! The title is what caught my eye!
6. THIEF OF LIES by Brenda Drake--a read involving bookishness? You have to ask?

And that's about all I've found so far! 


  1. Ooh, I haven't heard of most of these but I really like the teaser from Into the Dim. Blackhearts is already on my TBR list and I think I'll be adding Thief of Lies and Burning Glass :) Thanks so much for sharing, Jessica!

  2. I really want to read "Into the Dim"! It has a sense of the Outlander here... :)

  3. Cannibal cousin? It is too early for that! Haha great tease.

  6. Your teaser made me laugh! Lots of good book ahead.

    I'm playing (with a giveaway) at Beth Fish Reads

  7. Thief of Lies! Yes yes yes! The book had me sold at the fact that the characters jump between worlds of libraries. Books and fantasy, what more could you ask for! :D

    And I love your teaser! If the rest of the book runs along a similar vein, I will have to check it out.

  24. Into the Dim and Blackhearts sound amazing ^^ I'm looking forward to those!

    Laura @ psilovethatbook

  25. Time travel is one of those things that turn me off a book. I'm glad you are enjoying the book. My teaser (and 2000th post) this week comes from Inherit the Stars by Tessa Elwood. Happy reading!

  26. Blackhearts and The Reader really interest me! My TTT

  27. The books you have here that aren't on my list are still ones that I'm really looking forward to. I love all the covers, too. Great list!

  28. I've seen Into the Dim on a lot of top ten lists today so it was nice to get to read a teaser from it. It sure sounds like it will be good!

    I enjoyed reading your list too. Blackhearts made my list too. :-) I am eager to read some of the others on your list. Fear the Drowning Deep in particular. The Reader also sounds like it will be good.

  29. lol @ the quote "Please. I prayed as I grasped the crystal door knob. Please don't let this be the room where they hide the deformed cannibal cousin. 'Cause it's just too damn early for that."" How are you liking the book so far? I'm being nosy ;)

  30. Great list! I can't wait for Blackhearts, Into the Dim, and Burning Glass! Hope you love them!
