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.

  19. Alice Hoffman is always a good choice! ;-)

  20. Alice Hoffman is always a good choice! ;-)

    My list:

  22. Great list! I should have added Insurgent, as I'm sure that I'll love Divergent so much! I read an ARC of Paris, My Sweet last month, and I have to admit that I didn't love it. It was cute, but not really my cup of tea. I think you'll enjoy it, though. :) Thanks for stopping by my TTT!

  23. No cheating, No dying looks really interesting! So many books I haven't heard of! Great list!

  25. It looks like you have a few Paris books for the Spring. That will be a theme for me as well since I'm going in May.

  26. WOW, these all have such pretty covers!! Also, I saw No Cheating, No Dying at the bookstore and was wondering if it's any good -- hopefully you'll review it after reading. :)
