"My body convulses and I take another couple of steps.

Into the middle of the road.

And I feel no desire to move." Kindle loc 3%*

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 Websites I Love That Aren't About Books

*in no particular order

Yup, I visit the Disney Store online fairly regularly! At least once a week! If not more!


I have my favorite shops and always looking for new ones! I'm on there on a weekly basis as well!! Pretty much all my jewelry comes from Etsy shops!


Not just for books mind you! DVDs and CDs and Funko Pop collectibles too!! And lots of other not book items. ;)


For my book related jewelry needs!! LOL! I have quite a bit of her Jennifer L. Armentrout items! And some Julie Kagawa ones too! So it's not technically about books, but jewelry!! ;)


This is for just small little items, crystals or stones for luck, protection, easing stress. I like those sort of things! I love the little animal sculptures she has too!

Yeah...I look at Kohls online as well as in person in the store!! Always looking at those Online Only specials!!


Love Hot Topic! Granted  they can be a little pricey, but I love all their Disney merchandise, and of course Funkos!!

And I think that's about it. All I can think of anyway. Most everything else is definitely book related and bookish!!


  1. I really hope they don't get hit by the car.

    I love that your first pick is the Disney store! Great list!

  2. Just looking at the cover makes me want to read this. I am not much of a shopper. :-)

  3. Hmm...It's titled Immortal so either she won't die if the car hits her, or she comes back from the dead after it does. I really like the cover art for this one.

    Here's my TT

  4. Love the tease! That one looks good. I'm with you, Amazon is a definite! I usually buy funkos in the store at Hot Topic or GameStop so that's not one I frequent. I also love Etsy. They have so many amazing unique gifts to buy there! I get a good deal of my clothes at Kohl's so that's one I'm on quite a lot as well. Do Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter count? Those would have to be included in mine if they do :D

  5. So with you on Hot Topic! They can be expensive but they have some of the best disney and pop culture stuff!


Comments are an award all on their own! So my blog is an award free one! Thanks for any consideration though!
