Always glad to find new travel books,
especially those that also include spiritual quests.

Yes, always glad to find new travel books.
And who could pass up traveling in Europe with a dog?!

Never let it be said that I don't read the occasional
fiction book.

Do you have other suggestions for me?
How about you? 
What will you be reading this fall?

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.


  1. Deb - Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting! I appreciate your recommendation of rereading the Little House Series! It does seem like a fall read!

    Unfortunately, I don't recognize any of the books on your TBR list :( You will have to let me know if they are any good!!! The Europe of 5 Wrong Turns a Day looks like it could be amusing and fun!

  2. Hi Deb!

    I just wanted to say thank you for stopping by!
    Looking at your list, The Little Paris Kitchen sounds good :) I'll have to check it out!

    Thanks again!
    Bella :)

  3. I like European travels and European food! I especially would love an American Dog's European Vacation.

  4. I'm not really into 'self-help' books but Gretchen Rubin's 'The Happiness Project' was life-changing for me! Didn't know she had a new book out - will be adding it to my TBR pile as well.

  5. Keep meaning to get the Bronsky book, as I've heard great things about it.

  6. I really want to read Yes, Chef too!

  7. These are all new to me. I hope you get a chance to read them all. Happy reading!

  8. Ella in Europe looks adorable! What a sweet-looking puppy. I admire anyone whose dog is well-behaved enough to take on a European vacation--mine certainly isn't! :)

    Thanks for sharing your list! Happy reading!

  9. Lots of books about food and travel. Interesting.

  10. Happier at Home and Yes Chef both sound good. I will have to check them out!

    Have a great week!

  11. Hi Deb! Oooo Ella in Europe sounds quite good

  12. What a cool list! I haven't heard of most of these books but they sound so intriguing. Looks like you've got some fascinating reads ahead of you! :)

  13. Oh, Rubin's book sound really interesting! I haven't even heard of most of the books on your list but they seem like good reads. Are you a bit of a foodie??

  14. I have a sample of Yes, Chef on my Kindle App right now, and I'm hoping I like it. I've been craving a cooking book lately.

  15. Ella in Europe sounds like something that I would pick up. The books that you've picked sound so great :). Thanks for stopping by my blog Deb!

  16. Your choices are always interesting looking and intriguing. I look at each one and think, I want to read that one, too!

  17. I'm always reading fiction so it's nice to come here and see books on food and travel. Two things I love! 5 dollars a day in Europe?! Can it be done? This is a lovely Top Ten List. Have fun with your reads and thanks for visiting The Readers Den

  18. Hi, thanks for dropping by my blog! You have some interesting travel books listed. Europe on 5 Wrong Turns a Day sounds rather adventurous -- I'm not sure I'd be so willing to trust in a vintage map!

    Enjoy your fall reads!

  19. I've never heard of most of your upcoming reads. Ella in Europe looks very cute.

  20. Wow, your to-read list is so different from mine! I love it! I hope you enjoy all of them.

  21. Great list! Europe on 5 Wrong Turns a Day sounds like a fun read xD
