Top Ten Tuesday (14)

photo from the broke and the bookish
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here 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. (Meme description taken from the broke and the bookish)

Happy Reading,


  1. the book "Go Ask Alice" with a quote "Even now I'm not really sure which parts of myself are real and which parts are things I've gotten from books." seems pretty mystical and somehow i feel like i relate to it. as long as we live we still don't know who we are because changes happens all the time.

  2. That's a great way to look at it. I added it in because it's extremely true for me. Books change me all the time. For instance I have to spin eggs once clockwise before I crack them based on a myth in a book. ;)

    Thanks for your comment.

  3. Same here. Every time i am looking for an inspiration and I don't find answers and opinions for my friends i always look for a book that is similar to what i need. book and its writers really finds way on how to convey their ideas. :)
