Top Ten Tuesday

This week's topic is:
Top Ten Books I resolve to read in 2013!

I know I'm going to cry, so I just need to suck it up and get it over with because I'll love it.
A Game of Thrones - George R.R. Martin
I really need to read this so I can continue to watch the show.
Divergent - Veronica Roth
Everyone says this is amazing and I can hardly keep it in the library. I really need to get to this.
The Host - Stephenie Meyer
Hey, that movies coming out soon eh? I should get to this since I have had it since it came out.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies - Seth Grahame-Smith
This will kill two birds with one stone. I'll (re)read a classic and a zombie book. Hooray!

Soulless- Gail Carriger
I really am excited to read this series, but somehow I just haven't made it to them yet. 
Shiver - Maggie Stiefvater
This one has been sitting on my shelf forever. I haven't read a book by just her yet and I really ought to.
The Passage - Justin Cronin
I've had this one since it came out too and since the sequel just came out I figure I should read this.
Forbidden - Tabitha Suzuma
I was really interested in reading this one, but have pushed it aside so this year I will get to it.
Lola and the Boy Next Door - Stephanie Perkins
I really don't understand how I skipped reading this. 

Have you guys read any of these? 
Any recommendations on where in this list to start?

The Broke and the Bookish is a group of college aged and twenty somethings that have an unhealthy obsession with reading and would spend every last penny on books even if it meant skipping a few meals. We are the people  who lurk in the library, buy handbags based on how many books can be stashed in them, and who refer to characters in books as if they are personal friends.
We sought after other bookish college students to share in our love for reading and were brought together by the College Students group on Goodreads that was created in September 2008. Our desire to share great books with each other in and our tendency to be opinionated and passionate about all things book related naturally led to the birth of The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010.


  1. I recommend starting with Divergent! It is as amazing as people say :) Also I loved The Host. It was a little slow at the beginning but then it's awesome, very well written. I also vow to read The Fault in Our Stars this year, I've had it for a while now, I just gotta pump myself up!Lola of course is a super cute easy read. Good luck with A Game of Thrones, I'm not quite ready to attack that beast yet!

  2. Divergent and Lola and the Boy Next Door are two of my all-time favorite books!! The Fault In Our Stars is also on my list! Great list :)

    Here's my Top Ten!

  3. Great list! The Passage = Awesome! Game of Thrones = Freakin' Awesome! Hope you get to them all and like them all! Happy New Year! :D

  4. I say read The Host before the movie comes out LOL! I really enjoyed it. Great list, I hope you get to all of them!

    Here's my Top Ten.

  5. Divergent is really great, and The Fault in Our Stars is okay..

    I also have Lola and the Boy Next Door on my list :)

  6. I have no idea where you should start. You have so many good reads on your list! I would probably go with Divergent. Happy New Year!

    Here is my list:

  7. The Host is good. I think a hundred pages could have been cut, but I still really enjoyed it. Divergent is excellent. And the rest I'm still dying to read.

    Happy New Years and happy reading!

    Here are the books I resolve to read

    ~Danica Page
    Taking it One Page at a Time

  8. The Fault in Our Stars is on my list too. I really need to pick that up this year! :)

  9. I just bought The Fault in Our Stars today because it sounded like the best one to start with. I enjoyed The Host, loved Shiver and PP&Z was okay for me. I can't wait to read Lola as well! And I've only heard amazing things about Divergent. Looking forward to reading your thoughts on these. Happy new year! :)

  10. I think, and hope, that you will like TFiOS, Shiver, and Divergent :D

    And I own copies of Lola, Forbidden, and Soulless - hopefully I can get to them this year, too!

  11. I need to get to A Game of Thrones, Shiver, The Passage, & all of Stephanie Perkins's books & re-read The Host. Divergent was brilliant and TFiOS was great! Great list!
