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. Carry On is on my list as well. I love the one previous book by Rowell that I've read. I'm curious about The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend and now I want to find out more about Only in Naples. Great list!

    1. It's that kind of good buzz that helps me decide what to read.

  3. I'm still on the fence about City On Fire. Am hearing mixed things. Long book. I have a copy of Fates and Furies and will read it someday. And The Readers Of Broken Wheel Recommend also sounds great - for the book references alone. Enjoy!

  4. I really want to read Our Souls at Night. I don't know what stopped me from picking up The Dust that Falls from Dreams, I loved the other books by de Bernieres that I read...Happy reading! :)

  6. The Geography of Genius sounds interesting, especially when the blurb includes "what is in the air and can we bottle it?" My TTT

  9. Carry On is on my list too! I didn't like Fangirl as much but I did enjoy reading the teaser we got.
    Rajoy your books!

    1. I wasn't wild about Fangirl either, but I'm hopeful for Carry On.

  10. I really want to read Carry On too, after loving the Simon and Baz bits of Fangirl.

  11. I loved Fangirl, so I've been excited for Carry On... although I haven't been in the mood to read fantasy for a little while, so that's why it's still sitting on my shelf :( Sorry you didn't like Fangirl as much. Hopefully you like Cath's fanfic parts bc that's pretty much what Carry On is (I think). Thanks for stopping by my list!!

  12. The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend is a book I'm keeping my eye out for, but I haven't actually added it to my wishlist yet. I keep seeing it about, although I don't recall seeing a full on review yet. I could be lying with that statement - I see a lot of reviews day in day out. Haha!

    The most recent addition to my wishlist was The Vegetarian - hearing a lot about that one lately!

  16. I'm interested in the Fates and Furies novel -- which I've heard so much about but haven't picked up just yet. It's on my radar too!
