top 10 - Because of Bloggers

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and theBookish. 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.

Top Ten Books I Read Because Of Another Blogger (In honor of BBAW!)

I have a LIST of books that I want to read because of other Bloggers….So many books!  However, there are only a few of them that I have actually read.  Here is a list of the ones I can track back…read or TBR!  The book links will either take you to my reviews; or, if I haven’t read it yet, to GoodReads.

    1.      ClockworkAngel by Cassandra Clare on Paranormal Indulgences
    2.      Yours toKeep by Shannon Stacey on The Book Garden
    3.      Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini on A Life Bound By Books
    4.      A Weekendwith Mr. Darcy by Victoria Connelly on Austenesque Reviews
    5.      Mr. Darcy’sLittle Sister by C. Allyn Pierson on Austenesque Reviews
    6.      MagicUnder Glass by Jaclyn Dolamore on Sara’s Urban Fantasy
    7.      LittleBlack Dress  by Susan McBride on Chick Lit is Not Dead
    8.      TheViolets of March by Sarah Jio on Chick Lit is Not Dead
    9.      The PeachKeeper by Sarah Addison Allen on Write Meg!
    10.   TextualHealing by Eric Smith on Write Meg!

This week’s question has brought up a really good question.  I had to do a bit of hunting in finding out where I did see these books!  I will now try to figure out how to link back (in GR, if possible) to the websites where I first saw these books, and the reviews that made me want to put them in my TBR pile!  With weekly meme’s, like Follow Me Fridays, I look at so many websites and see so many books that I want to read, I need to leave myself a trail of cookie crumbs!  Oh….cookies!

What are some of the blogs you go to when you need a new book to read… a Blogger whose book tastes are similar to yours, and you end up feeding your TBR monster from their reviews?!?


  1. I've seen "The Violets of March" on a lot of blogs and I do want to read it very badly. I love the book blogging community just because you can always find a blog that brings a great book to your attention. have a nice day. kaye—the road goes ever ever on

  2. Mr Darcy's Little Sister sounds like a fun read. Finding other book bloggers has helped expand my view of books and authors. I've found all sorts of stuff I wouldn't have noticed otherwise.

  3. Quite a few I haven't read yet. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. I admit I'd forgotten this week was BBAW! Shame on me.

    I discovered I don't keep very good records of what books have been recommended by bloggers as opposed to other sources. So that's the reason I didn't post my Top Ten list this week.

    I'll have to do better next year.

    I did post my Top Ten Star Trek Next Generation Episodes, but that doesn't count, I guess. Though thanks for your comment, Kate. :)

    My TBR list is almost out of control!


Thanks for taking the time to post a comment. If you leave a link to yours, I would love to visit... but it may take a few days before I comment or explore!

Sorry about the word verification - I hate them, too - but I hate vulgar spam more!

Have a Fabuloso Day!
