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 I Wouldn't Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree This Year

*in no particular order
*I'm hopefully good for the first 5 as those were ones I gave on my list to my bestie when she asked!

1. THE LEVELLER by Julia Durango
2. ROARING SHADOWS by Colleen Gleason
3. FORBIDDEN by Eve Bunting

4. THE ORPHAN QUEEN by Jodi Meadows
6. THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO by Alexandre Dumas--I already have one book, but I LOVE this edition! So pretty and soft!

7. DRACULA by Bram Stoker--the same publishing house as my previous book!
8. PETER PAN by J.M. Barrie--ditto!
9. WENDY DARLING: STARS by Colleen Oakes

10. THE HOUSE by Christina Lauren



  1. I certainly wouldn't mind The Orphan Queen finding its way out of my tree! I hope you get some (or all) of these lovelies from Santa.

    My TTT!

  2. I hope your Christmas wishes come true. I got The Orphan Queen when it was a Kindle Daily Deal last week for $1.99. Now I just have to find time to read it. Happy holidays!

  3. Yes! The Orphan Queen! One of my favorites.

    Those are really pretty editions of some classics. I wouldn't mind having them either. Here's my TTT

  8. That's quite a teaser. It makes me want to know the backstory.

    Thank you for sharing your top ten list! I didn't participate this week, and, honestly, I'm not sure I could have narrowed it down to ten. Haha I hope you receive some, if not all, of the books on your wish list!

  9. I do want Wendy Darling! That one has caught my eye!...I think I have a copy of The Count of Monte Cristo.
