Top Ten Tuesday--Books From Santa

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.

Top Ten Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing Me


How about you? What books do YOU hope to see under the tree this Christmas?

Random Movie Quotes (RMQ)!

Don't know what this is? Check the tab at the top of the page!

Last time's RMQ was: "Oh dear. You really are an uptight bastard, aren't you? You can drop the thousand-yard stare. I've seen it all before, and I'm not impressed."

This was said by Graham McTavish who played Lewis the mercenary in 2008's Rambo. No one guessed this one.

Today's RMQ is:

"There is a saying, a very old saying: when the pupil is ready the master will appear."

One point for film, one for actor, one for character. Good luck!


  1. First, may I say, love the holiday theme. Very festive and cheery. Books : I have a bunch of craft books on my list. Bunches. As for fiction, well your book, of course!

  2. I had a friend completely rave about boneshakers but I totally forgot thanks for the reminder and stopping by my place :)

  3. I am interested in the Last Romanov!

  4. I'm also excited to read The Name of The Star and Beautiful Lies. Great list!

  5. Oh I love the quote. Great list. I am going to have to check some of these out on GR. Thanks for stopping by my page.

  6. Wow! So many unknown titles...I think my wishlist is about to get a heck of a lot bigger. xD

  7. I have The Name Of The Star on my shelf but I haven't gotten to it yet! It sounds really good, just a matter of fitting it in somewhere.

  8. Oooh, The Name of the Star is so good and creepy (in the best way)! I highly recommend it.
