Top Ten Tuesday--Priority Books for 2013

Good Morning and Happy New Year! Looks like we all survived 2012! Yea! :D

  • My blog tour for Persistence of Vision will begin on January 14th and run through February. More on this next week but during the tour, I'll probably just be running general memes on my blog and putting links to the tour stops for each day, so watch for that.
  • The Persistence of Vision book trailer is now in production! Yea! I hope to be able to post it by the end of the month.
  • I'll be signing/selling books at the A Passionate Affair Valentine Boutique Gift Show in Kearns, Utah on February 9, 2013.
  • I will be doing a signing at Hastings in Ogden on February 22, 2013.
  • My Favorite Martian Blog Hop will be on January 14. Sign up here.

Top Ten Tuesday:

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created 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.

Today's question is: Top Ten Books I Resolve to Read in 2013.










So how about you? What are your top ten priority reads for 2013?

Random Move Quotes (RMQ)

Don't know what this is? Click tab at top of page.

Last week's RMQ was: "Average foot speed over uneven ground barring injuries is 4 miles-per-hour. That gives us a radius of six miles. What I want from each and every one of you is a hard-target search of every gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse in that area. Checkpoints go up at fifteen miles."

This was said by Tommy Lee Jones (as Detective Sam Gerard)  in 1993's The Fugitive.

Okay, no one got this that I can find. It seems to me that someone may have guessed it on Twitter, but I can find the tweet. If you guess this one, let me know so I can give you the points.

Today's RMQ is:

Woman: "...You're like my own son." 
Man: "I am your own son, Mother." 
Woman: "Exactly! I endured eighteen hours of hard labor to bring you into the world. The doctors kept telling me to take drugs, but I told them I wouldn't do anything to hurt my child. Well, I've changed my mind. If you screw up with Elizabeth I swear I'll kill you."

Five points possible. One for each actor and character and one for the film title. Good luck! :D 


  1. I have heard good things about 'The Fault In Our Stars'! Happy New Year!

  2. Interesting list. I really enjoyed Name of the Star. The Fault in Our Stars is on my list too. Happy Reading and good luck!

  3. I read the Name of the Star yesterday and loved it! I am dying to read the second installment now!

  4. I read a short story that turned me on to the greatness of Maureen Johnson so I'm looking forward to reading more stuff by her too! AND also The Fault in Our Stars has been on my shelf for far too long now..just pumping myself up for a good crying session :)

  5. The Fault of Our Stars is on my list too! Great list :)

  9. Beautiful Lies and The Name of the Star are both on my to-read list, and more books I'd like to eventually get to this year but just don't know if I'll find the time. :)

  10. The Name of the Star! I read that back in the fall and it sufficiently creeped me out (in a good way!) - I'm looking forward to the release of the next book in that series :) Also, TFiOS was one of (if not) my favourite reads of 2012 LOVED it so much! I hope you enjoy it too!
