Top Ten Tuesday (1)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by 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!

This week is a freebie, so I can make my own list. I've decided on:

Top 10 Releases I'm Excited
About This Fall

1. Eve by Anna Carey I've been desperate to read this book for months now. This is the first in a trilogy of a new dystopian series. It's being released by HarperTeen October 4, 2011.

2. Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon The Irish girl in me (have you seen my blog name?) has me craving this one. I'm hearing lots of positive buzz around it. It will be released by HarperTeen October 4, 2011.

3. The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson This YA fantasy by a debut author is right up my alley. I love that the heroine isn't your typical, drop-dead gorgeous girl. It's coming out Sept. 20, 2011 from Greenwillow.

4. Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan I've never been a fan of space odysseys until I got my hands on Across the Universe by Beth Revis. Now I'm hooked, and cannot WAIT for this one. This comes out Sept. 27, 2011 from St. Martin's Griffin.

5. Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout I've alread read this book (see my review HERE), but it simply had to be added to the books I'm most excited about this fall. This will be released by Spencer Hill Press on Oct. 18, 2011.

6. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin Visit any YA blog and you're bound to see a post devoted to this new debut. It's blowing up the blogosphere. I can't wait to get my hands on Sept. 27, 2011 (Simon & Schuster).

7. The Pledge by Kimberly Derting Kimberly Derting can do no wrong in my book. Her Body Finder series are some of the best things I have ever read, and I have no reason to suspect her foray into the dystopian world will prove any less addictive. This comes out Nov. 15, 2011 from Margaret K. McElderry.

8. Shut Out by Kody Keplinger Heard of a little book called The D.U.F.F.? No? Where the heck have you been? Kody Keplinger has this incredible way of writing that completely sucks you in. I've already pre-ordered this one. This comes out Sept. 5, 2011 from Poppy.

9. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins Can we all just agree that Anna and the French Kiss was hands-down the most romantic book of 2010? I expect nothing less than awesomeness when I delved into this book on Sept. 29, 2011 (Dutton).

10. Illuminated by Erica Orloff Forbidden romances are my thing. They drive me insane, but I love them. That's what has me so excited about this one, due out Dec. 8, 2011 from Speak.


  1. Good choice of list! The three covers you picked to illustrate are all beautiful, too.

    I've never yet read Anna and the French Kiss. Guess I better get on that. :)

  2. I just won a copy of Glow! So excited. I also want to read Carrier of the Mark.

  3. Mara Dyer is the one on your list that I've heard the most about for sure.

    Here is my list for this week.

  4. I cannot wait for Lola and the Boy Next Door! Great list! The Pledge sounds great also

  5. Love these picks!! I'm dying to read Lola, much like every other YA fan, haha. And I'm reading The Pledge right now... it's pretty good so far!


I hope you know that every time you comment, an angel gets its wings.
