Shelley's Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I Loved More Than I Thought I Would

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!

This weeks Feature:

My Top 10 Books I Loved More Than
I thought I would - This was a very hard list for me to come up with. I read so many books, that I had to sift through all the one's I've read over the last several months.

9. Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

8. The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

7. Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys

6. Lost Girls by Merrie DeStefano

5. You Don't Know My Name by Kristen Orlando

4. Frostblood by Elly Blake

3. Heartstone by Elle Katharine White

2. Priceless by Shannon Mayer
*This is me coming late to the party. Wish I had books 3 thru the end of the series!*

1. The Valiant by Lesley Livingston
*For me, this is the best book I've read this year, and yes I know its only February!*


  1. OOh nice!! I LOVED Stalking Jack the Ripper! I kind of thought I would too because I love a good mystery! And ooh Frostblood was also really good! I still want to read The Diabolic so I'm glad that one was even better than you thought it would be!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. It adds an extra layer of satisfaction when a book is surprisingly a great match for me. You've got two on your list that I want to read badly- Heartstone and Salt to the Sea.

    1. Salt to the Sea blew me away. It was everything and more than I expected.

  3. OK, I honestly think half of your list is on my TBR - Stalking Jack the Ripper, Frost Blood, Valiant, Heart Stone and You Don't Know My Name. Glad you loved them all! Hope I'm as lucky.

  4. Almost every single one of these is on my tbr or on my shelf already, Shelley! Man, I can't wait to get to Stalking Jack the Ripper and The Diabolic! And I'm so excited to see The Valiant on your list. I've read other books from Livingston and really enjoyed them. I'll have to pick up this one. :)

  5. Some good looking books and I'm glad they were better than you thought they would be. That's always a nice thing.

  8. aaaaa Stalking Jack the Ripper!! I should have included that on my list today too! My TTT

  10. LOVE, Love Walk on Earth! And Salt to the Sea. I don't know about the rest of the books. Might have to check them out as well. :D

  11. The Diabolic for me ended up being one of those that I loved a lot less than expected >.< that sucked. But, I am looking to reading the others on the list

  12. Thanks for the list, looks like some great books.

  13. I'll be reading The Valiant soon. I've been looking forward to that one.
