Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created 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!
Sidney Sheldon novels: Would never usually read a "romance" novel but I kind of got addicted to these in school (these were NO WAY school girl type books but mum used to read them and then I stole them from her)
Confessions of a Shopoholic: First dip into chick lit and I was shocked at how much I liked just reading something that was easy to read and not make my brain go all hurry.
Brave New World: A classic that I would have never picked up if it wasn't for my college reading list but I actually loved this and was glad I was made to read it as such.
The Rhime of the Ancient Mariner: A poem…a real life poem. I used to love poems as a child and then I read this while studying the Romantics at university and it made me get shivers. Creepy ghost story.
Bridget Jones' Diary: Another chick lit book that I read and still don't get why some girls gush about it but it was funny and a good read but not my favourite.
The Wasteland: A tough poem that I would never pick up and it was a real struggle because it's a real hard one to read and comprehend. However I was glad I tried it.
Macbeth: Loved it. A ghost story, murder mystery and Shakespeare. A must really if you like your horror and creep factor.
An Inspector Calls: Another school reading list book and this play was a great crime thriller that is usually on most school lists but i'd encourage people to read it even if you wouldn't normally pick up a play. A great read.
And Then We Came To The End: It was on the Richard and Judy summer reading list and sounded funny and it was but it was also very confusing at times. It shifts from an office comedy to somewhere completely dark and different.
When God was a Rabbit: Another Richard and Judy Reading List book that I thought sounded interesting but after hearing a few good reviews and recs from other bloggers I gave it a read when my boss lent my a copy and loved it. Beautifully written.
