"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Top Ten Tuesday (27)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because they are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. They'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week they will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of their bloggers’ answers. Everyone is welcome to join. All they 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.
The topic this week is:

  1. Awesome list! We have Across the Universe, Anna and Divergent in common. Delirium and Dash & Lily are wonderful too. It was so hard to leave off so many favorites this week! Rot & Ruin also looks great. Thanks for sharing your list :)

  2. I have only read ANNA and DIVERGENT on your list but these others look like a must!! I've been meaning to read Delirium and just haven't got around to it. But, I hear it is amazing. I need some amazing!

  3. I loved Divergent, but it didn't make the cut. I also really loved Delirium. I listened to the audio version and the narrator was magical!

    My TTT

  4. Across the Universe is indeed a very good book. One of my favourite series. See, I knew I forgot something. Well, I read so many great books, it's hard to decide which ones go on the list. I like your list! Haven't read Divergent yet, but it sounds awesome. :)

  5. I have some of those on mine too! New follower :D


  6. This was a great theme! I also have Divergent, Anna and Across the Universe on my list this week- they're all just sooo good! I really want to read Delirium next!

  7. I. Love. Every. Book. On. Your. List. Epic!

    My Top Ten

  8. AHHHH Zombies vs UNICORNS!!!! One of my favorite books EVER, not just during my blog's life. I will forever be questing to find its anthology equal. I'm also a huge fan of Will Grayson Will Grayson, though Rot & Ruin was far from making my top ten. Great selection! You gave me a few for my tbr list.


  9. Love your post. I'll admit I have read exactly none of the books on your list, but "The Name of the Star" looks interesting.
    I'm actually an author as well as a blogger. Looking for good readers to let me know their thoughts on my work or the work of my fellow authors. If you're at all interested, I'd be willing to supply a digital copy of one of our novels. Pick one out at engenbooks.com if interested. I write YA thrillers.
    Again, love the post.


Thanks so much for stopping by; I love to hear from you!

Happy reading!!!!
