Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme 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 complete with one of our bloggers’ answers. 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 post a comment on our post with a link to your Top Ten Tuesday post to share with us and all those who are participating. If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. If you can't come up with ten, don't worry about it---post as many as you can!
This week's topic, in honor of the coming of fall, is Top Ten Books on Your TBR List. I'm not planning on buying any books (we'll see how far that goes), so my list is all books currently sitting on my shelves. I'm really trying to wrap up a ton of reading challenges. I just spent a few days reorganizing my books to put the reading challenge qualifying books on top and in the bookshelf next to my chair. Those are the books that I really need to read like now!
1. The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler -- I've had this one for awhile and need to get a few more contemporary romances in before Sept. 30th. This one also intrigued me. So it's going to the top of the list.
2. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams -- Counts towards science fiction and Page to Screen challenges.
3. Contact by Carl Sagan -- Another Science Fiction...
4. Love, Rosie by Cecelia Ahern -- Really need to wrap this contemporary romances and I heard good things about this one.
5. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley -- One of favorite old books. Counts for 2011: Back in the Day and A to Z: Authors (X).
6. The Girl from Jungchow by Kate Furnivall -- I"m intrigued by her books and settings. Plus it counts for Historical Fiction and A to Z: Authors (F).
7. The Blades of the Rose series by Zoe Archer (Rebel, Scoundrel, Warrior, Stranger) -- Been on my shelf for a few months and I really want to read them. Plus they count as four for my Summer Romance - Paranormal Romance Challenged ending Sept. 30th.
8. Cotillion by Georgette Heyer -- Still have 4 to read for my Heyer challenge. As much as I love Regency romance, this one has been hard to get motivated for.
9. The Lost Duke of Wyndham by Julia Quinn -- Some good looking historical romance for my 2011: Show It Who is Boss challenge.
10. Mr. Cavendish, I Presume by Julia Quinn -- Another historical romance for my A to Z: Authors (Q) challenge.
