Top Ten Tuesday (14)

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!

Top Ten Beach Reads
(The 10 books I will be taking to the beach to read next month)

1. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

2. Scorched by Mari Mancusi

3. The 100 by Kass Morgan

4. The Secret of Ella and Micha by Jessica Sorensen

5. Frozen by Melissa de la Cruz

6. Antigoddess by Kendare Blake

7. The Brokenhearted by Amelia Kahaney

8. The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas

9. The Chaos of Stars by Kristen White

10. My Life After Now by Jessica Verdi


  1. Yeah, that pile looks pretty similar to mine! But I'm fickle so that might change at any time. Really looking forward to THE 100 -- supposedly a teen Battlestar Galactica. *fingers crossed*

    1. I've never seen Battlestar Galactica ... Perhaps I should watch this show? I keep hearing a lot about it.

  2. This list is also known as "the top ten books you got at BEA." Hahaha. I missed out on getting The 100, but, hey, now I can wait and find out if it's good. Also, it's not like I don't have enough to read. Though that teen BSG is making me a little drooly.

    1. I wish I'd known that - I had 2 copies of it. I grabbed one at BEA and then got a second copy in a swag bag at a party and passed it onto someone else. :(

      If it's half as awesome as I hope, I'll gladly pass it onto you when I'm done!

  3. Looks like you have some awesome books on that list, a lot of which I haven't read. :)

    My Top Ten

  4. YES TO ALL OF THESE HANNAH! I think I was the only person in the world to not really care for Throne of Glass, but it ended stronger than it started for me so I am going to be picking up Crown of Midnight. We'll see how it goes! Which of these are you going to start first?

    1. I think The 100 - I've been wanting this book since the winter (and even moreso when I found out it would be a TV show). I can't wait to dive into it. It may not make it to the beach. It may be a pre-beach read. ;)

  5. You have some seriously good beach reads this summer!! I hope you love Throne of Glass, cause Crown of Midnight is AH-MAZING! I hope you enjoy all of your reads (I need to read most of these still too)

  6. I'm not familiar with your titles but the covers indicate they would be great beach reads. Thanks for sharing. kelley—the road goes ever ever on

  7. The Secret of Ella and Micha by Jessica Sorensen is one of my top summer tbr books;) I can't wait to see The 100. The trailer looks so good and it has Dr. Burke in it ;) Thehee. I can't wait to read Throne of Glass either, just got a paperback and it's so prettyyyhhh. *pets it* Most of the books you mentioned are on my tbr list so what I gather from this is that you have fine taste in books, Hannah;)

  8. Ok seriously this list is epic and right up my alley Hannah!!! I LOVEd Throne of Glass and I hope you do to!
    Burning Sky was fanfreaking amazing and The Brokenhearted super interesting! I didn't know about the 100 until Jenny got a copy at BEA... now I'm intrigued!
