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: Fandom Freebie: Top Ten Fandoms I'm A Part Of!

*in no particular order
**the problem with some of these is that I love so many of the series the author writes, so I can't just choose one, so you'll notice that I'm apart of the author fandom, i.e.: anything they write!

10. MARIA V. SNYDER--so yeah, all of Maria's books have been favorites of mine! I'm still trying to collect her titles too. Need to go to Abe Books website for a little shopping spree soon!
9. JULIE KAGAWA--I've loved every book Julie's written! And I struggle to pick a favorite! I mean we have the Fey, Vampires, DRAGONS! I can't just choose one!
8. FALLING KINGDOMS SERIES--such a fangirl over this series!! And the recent cover reveal of the last book?! SWOONS!!

7. BEAUTY AND THE BEAST--from the classic Disney movie to the most recent live action, from the gathering of retellings, I pretty much adore this story!! But yeah, gotta go with the original classic animated as top favorite, because bookworm Belle!!
6. PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN--I love this franchise! From this very first movie I was hooked, because Captain Jack Sparrow was just hilarious! And sexy! LOL!
5. LUX SERIES--book bloggers unite! I loved Katy's character and this series was just a ton of fun for me! I've enjoyed a lot of Jennifer's other books too but since some are contemps, I can't just lump sum it all as an author fandom.

The Three Way Tie!

4. SUPERNATURAL--I've been a fangirl of this series since the very day the pilot aired on The WB, because it was still The WB back then!!
3. HARRY POTTER--because duh!
2. DISNEY--see above!

1. BOOKS!!--I am a big fangirl of books! LOL! And all other bookish related things! Seeing t-shirts, art prints, totes, and all the other bookish goodies is such a heady feeling! I love it!
