· Top Ten Tuesday

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.

In 2011, Top Ten Tuesday was honored around the book blogosphere by winning Best Book Blog Meme as part of Book Blogging Appreciation Week. A huge thanks to all who voted and especially to those who participate and tweet about it every week!

Future Top Ten Tuesdays:

10 is just a suggestion to aim for if you can hit it -- do a list of 3 or 5 or 20 on your list. Your post, your choice!

September 15: FREEBIE -- your choice!
September 22: Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR
September 29: Ten Books To Read If You Like This Super Popular Book/Author (ie: you could list 10 different popular/bestselling books or authors with readalike suggestions for each or give 10 books for one best-selling/popular book or author like 10 authors to read if you like John Green or ten books to read if you like Gone Girl. Idea is to give good readalikes that may be less well known).
October 6:  Ten Bookish Things I Want to Quit Or Have Quit (aka ten book series I think I'm going to abandon, ten bookish habits I want to quit, ten authors I quit reading, ten types of books I'm quitting, ten tropes I want to stop reading about, ten books I marked as DNF (did not finish) recently, etc. Get as creative as you want)
October 13: Top Ten Author Duos You'd LOVE To See Write A Book Together (aka my (Jamie's) world would explode if Gayle Forman and Jandy Nelson wrote a book together) -- might be hard to come up with 10 but still would be fun! Bonus points if you tell us what kind of book you'd like them to write!
October 20: 10 Wishes I'd Ask The Book Genie To Grant Me (a new book from a certain author,  a reading superpower, a library that is your absolutely #librarygoals, a character to come to life, to met a certain author etc. etc.) YOU DREAM IT AND THE BOOKISH GENIE CAN DO IT.
October 27: Halloween themed freebie -- your choice (ie. 10 best ghost stories, 10 things that scare you in books, 10 literary Halloween costumes, 10 vampire novels, 10 books that WILL scare you, 10 non-scary books for Halloween, 10 scariest covers, etc.)
November 3:  Top Ten Debut Authors Who Have Me Looking Forward To Their Sophomore Novel (because when you love a debut you just are ITCHING to get your hands on the author's second book) or Top Ten Sophomore Novels That I Loved Just As Much If Not More As The Author's Debut (no one hit wonders heeeere!)
November 10: Top Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I'm Looking Forward To or Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I Still Need To Watch
November 17: Top Ten Quotes I Loved From Books I Read In The Past Year Or So (taken from my post topic from Freebie week)
November 24: Thanksgiving themed Freebie -- ten books I'm thankful for, authors I'm thankful for, Ten fictional families I'd like to celebrate Thanksgiving with, a personal non-bookish thankful list, etc. etc.

December 22: Top Ten Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree This Year
December 29: Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For The First Half of 2016

As a blog run by twenty-somethings, the thing most on our minds, aside from books, is what the heck we are going to do with our lives. We all joke and dream about having a job where we could read or blog all day and feel pangs of jealousy when we encounter someone who does just that. In my (Jamie's) job search, I've realized that there are so many different types of bookish jobs out there that I had never even thought about. In college I never thought I could be in the book industry because I never wanted to be an author or an editor or a publisher. I didn't think there was anything else out there. I've come to realize that there so many types of bookish jobs out there for people of varying strengths and abilities and I want to spotlight these jobs... and thus began our monthly feature--Bookish Jobs For Bookish People.

-- Erica from Harper Perennial: Marketing Manager
February -- Jen:  Children’s Programmer, SR. Library Assistant
March -- Tom from Harper Teen, Book Designer
April -- Cathy from Random House, Online Sales Coordinator for Amazon Sales
August -- Rosie, College Student Librarian

Student of the Month is an original feature where we spotlight bookish college students by means of either an interview or a guest post regarding the college life and books/blogging/writing. We also will sometimes spotlight fictional characters who are college students.

October- Steph Su 
November -- Kody Keplinger
March -- Jen from Makeshift Bookmark
