Top Ten Tuesday #25

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!
Since today we could choose a freebie pick for our Top Ten Tuesday Posts I went with:
Top 10 Books I DIDN'T Expect to Like So Much:
Outlander (Outlander, #1)Green DarknessGuilty Pleasures (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, #1)The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, #1)Born Free: A Lioness of Two Worlds (Story of Elsa, #1)Gone to Texas (Preacher, #1)
Knight Awakened (Circle of Seven, #1)It Rains in February: A Wife's Memoir of Love and Loss
ForbiddenThe Terror
Some of the books were out of my comfort zone. Some were sci-fi, others were non-fiction, dealt with hard issues or were just plain long. I didn't expect to love any of these as much as I did but I honestly can't stop recommending these ones.
What are YOUR Top 10 Books You DIDN'T You Thought You'd Like More/Less Than You Did?


  1. Oooh Forbidden looks interesting. I loved the Outlander series too. Great list.

  2. I feel like every monday night you remind me to read outlander and then the next we I have done nothing. Off to put it on hold at the library site!
    My Top Ten

  3. Great list! I haven't heard of most of these, but they do look really good :D

  4. I really enjoyed Born Free, the others you have listed I haven't read yet, some I haven't heard of until now.
    Check out my TTT.

  5. I've heard such good things about OUTLANDER!

  6. Wow, great list! I might have to try Outlander now (and one day Forbidden). Guilty Pleasures is awesome, it's a shame that the series has deteriorated into erotic fiction and the story lines have gone to mush - I miss the old Anita Blake! Gosh, Born Free I had completely forgotten about this title! So good, lol. :-)

  7. The only book on your list that I've read is The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. It's been years since I read it, but I did like it at the time. I wonder what I would think of it now.

    Thanks for sharing!

  8. Great list. I keep hearing such wonderful things about Outlander! I'm going to have to pick it up!

    Happy Reading!

  9. Thanks for your list! I had the same reaction to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I thought it looked geeky, but it totally pulled me in. I love when that happens.

  10. I haven't read most of these, and the one time I tried The Hitchhiker's Guide, I couldn't get into it. (I was probably just in the wrong mood; someday I'll try again.) I absolutely loved Born Free as a child, though -- I read it at least three times.


I love your comments! So feel free to comment away I'll try to answer every post so check back! . Also feel free to leave a link to your blog and I will absolutely follow you back :) Happy Reading!
*Note: This is an award free blog, thanks for thinking of me but I simply don't have the time to pass it along!
