(Recent) Five-Star Reads

 











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. The 6.41 to Paris is on my radar of course. As is All the Bright Things. Good to see you've had so many 5 star reads recently.

  2. Glad to see you enjoyed The 6.41 to Paris, I've been curious to check that book out. And I've been meaning to check out more of e.e. cummings' poems. Great list!

  3. Only one I've read is MRS. MIKE and that was when I was a teenager I think. I ought to reread it. There are others that look good too.

  4. The 6.41 to Paris looks like something I'd like and I'm curious about Mrs. Mike and All the Bright Places. Interesting mix of genres.

  5. Oh, I read Mrs. Mike when I was younger, as recommended by my mother, and loved it! Maybe I should pick it up again.

    As a NY-born person, that Humans of New York looks interesting to me. Haven't lived near the city since I was in my 20s but sometimes miss it. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

  13. All the Bright Places is a big I see everywhere, but haven't gotten a chance to pick it up myself. I must soon!

  14. Humans of NY is the only book on your list that I've heard of...mainly because we have a local version called Humans of Newtown (a inner city suburb of Sydney).

    I hope you track down the Shaun Tan.

  15. I've heard great things about All the Bright Places. I've also heard it's a sobfest, so I need to be in the right mood when I read that!

  16. My friend is obsessed with Humans of New York. She wanted this year's yearbook to be themed after it.
