Top Ten Tuesday #87

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010. 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, if you want to, add your name to the Linky widget on that day's posts (typically put up midnight EST on Tuesday) 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 10 Facts About Me as a blogger:

1. I started Turning the Pages on October 29th 2011. 
2. I have taken about a year and a half off blogging and am just now getting back into it full time. 
3. On my blog you will find reviews for romance, fantasy, sci-fi, YA, new adult, historical fiction, thrillers & mysteries, non-fiction, graphic novels and manga and all the subsets in between
4. My Mister reads all my posts and comments on them religiously, so he's the guy you see me calling Babe in the comments.
5.  Once upon a time I had 3 or 4 blog posts up a day for weeks on end! Crazy, not sure I could go back to that scheduling. 
6. My brother reads my blog. Hi Jay!
7.  The blog has had about 6 different layouts over the years, however this current one has been my layout for a few years now and I love it.
8. Because of blogging my TBR list on Goodreads is now at 14,000 books long!
9.  I have met some incredible authors in person that know me because of this blog :)
10.  I love bookish memes! Seriously I do them as much as I can :) 


  1. I will always be your biggest fan baby. I love your blog. It's great your getting it up and running again. Can't wait to see what you review next :)

  2. 14000 books? That's one long to read list! I blame blogging for my list getting crazy long as well. I never knew all the books existed until I started reading other blogs.
    I think it's lovely that Mr Turning the Pages is such a big fan. That's really sweet.
    And Happy 4 and a half years or so of blogging!

  3. Glad you're back. Love how your brother reads your blog.

  4. Blogging has made my TBR list ridiculous!

  5. Yay for meeting authors! Someday I'd like to attend some book events or signings. Sounds like a fun time. :)

  6. 14,000 books is a lot!! Also, I would never let my dad read my blog���� and my husband can't because he doesn't understand English

  7. Welcome back! It's great that your husband and brother both read your blog. My family know about it, but don't read it regularly -- though they do stop by from time to time. My Goodreads TBR is only about 760 books long... but that's because I've got another 700 or so on my "someday" list. If you put them together, yeah, over 14,000. Blogging will do that to you!

  8. That is so fun that both your husband and your brother read your blog! I think my husband does but not openly. 14000! That's an impressive list! I'm glad to see you back!

  9. Wow a 14000 book TBR? And I thought mine was bad, it's puny compared to that.
    My TTT:

  10. I agree, for the most part, but don’t you feel as if the issue is more complex than that?
