Top Ten Tuesday

This week's topic is:
Top Ten Books on my fall TBR list... 
(in a perfect world where I actually finish things on my TBR list)

Etiquette & Espionage - Gail Carriger
I have the second book staring at me so I need to start this series. 

The Chaos of Stars - Kiersten White

I just love Kiersten's writing and really need to read something else by her and this one sounds fantastic!

The Boy on the Bridge - Natalie Standiford
Love, love, love Natalie Standiford!

The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two - Catherynne M. Valente

(my review of book 1)(my review of book 2)

The Truth About You & Me - Amanda Grace
Amanda Grace does not write feel good books and sometimes you want something gritty. 

The Clockwork Scarab - Colleen Gleason
Bram Stoker's sister and Sherlock's niece!? Yes, yes, YES!

The Melancholy of Mechagirl - Cathrynne M. Valente
I have loved what I've read of her and I adore short stories, so this seems like a perfect match!

Winger - Andrew Smith
Boarding school, Rugby and that cover, how could I refuse?

Divergent - Veronica Roth

Now that the last book will soon be out, I can binge-read this series. 

Taken  - Erin Bowman

If I put this on enough lists, I may actually read it sometime. 

Have you guys read any of these? Where's the best place 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. Niiice! Reading Insurgent now myself! Hope you like Divergent! And OMG The Clockwork Scarab was fantastic!!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  2. Oh oh, The Truth About You and Me sounds like something I want to read!
    I like how you only start Divergent now that the final book is out. I'm thinking of doing that with new series too, because by the time the next book comes around I've forgotten the details of the first book!


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!
