Top Ten Tuesday

This week's topic is:
Top Ten Books I've read so far in 2013...
(links take you to my reviews)

If He Had Been With Me by Laura Nowlin - Just amazing.

Death Cloud
 by Andrew Lane
 - I didn't really think I would like this series much, but it's turned into one of my favorites.

Icons by Margaret Stohl - I was really excited for Margaret's solo project and it did not disappoint.

The Archived by Victoria Schwab - She always just makes these fantastic stories that will give you goosebumps.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green - Just as good as I expected it to be. ♥

Tuesdays at the Castle by Jessica Day George - Lots of fun. I want to live at Castle Glower.

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline - This was another really fun one. An all around great read for all ages.

Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi - I read Unravel Me this year too and that could have been on this list, but I love that with Destroy Me we get to see inside Warner. He's such a guarded character and this was a great glimpse beneath his steel doors.

Shades of Earth by Beth Revis - Though I didn't want this series to end, I tore through this book. It's was a satisfying conclusion to their centuries long trip.

Where You Are by J.H. Trumble - So moving.

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. Dear bookish college students,

    Great Top Ten List! So excited that you enjoyed WHERE YOU ARE. That one's kind of special to me.

  3. Shades of Earth made my list too - wasn't it just the coolest ending to an amazing series?!

    TTT @ Krista's Dust Jacket

  4. TFIOS! Agreed about SHADES OF EARTH, it was such a satisfying conclusion (and filled with surprises)!

    Great top ten :)

  5. just added "if he had been with me" to my amazon wishlist :)!

    1. It's amazing. I can't wait to see what you think!

  6. Tuesday's at the Castle looks like such a fun read! adding it to my wish list now!

  7. Good list, I loved The Fault in Our Stars as well.

  8. I really need to read The Fault In Our Stars - everyone's got so much good to say about it, which is so unusual. *adds to TBR list*

  9. Great list! I just love The Fault In Our Stars, and I've seen Shades Of Earth on so many lists today that I think I'm going to have to move Across The Universe to the top of my TBR pile!

  10. I have heard noting but good things about If He Had Been With Me and I LOVED TFiOS!

  11. I've been seeing The Archived on a bunch of lists, so clearly I need to check it out. And I will eventually make my way to The Fault in Our Stars...I just have a bad tendency of shying away from things I KNOW are going to be depressing (It took me 5 years to work up the nerve to start watching Last of the Mohicans, but I got interrupted. It's been another 5 years and I STILL haven't seen it haha)


Hello readers! I love comments, so please feel free to leave them. I do comment back on every comment I get, though it may take me a couple of days. Thanks for stopping by!
