Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because The Broke and Bookish are particularly fond of lists (as are we!). Each week a new Top Ten list topic is given and bloggers can participate.

A SNICKER OF MAGIC is on my list today, too. I love a book about the magic of words!
I love YA dystopian books, so I’ll have to check out THE LIVING.
Happy TTT to you both!
Now this is my kind of top ten list–more than ten! I decided not to include picture books on my list. I might do a second list for later in the week of my favorite picture books so far. Yaqui is on my list too. Really loved that book. These lists today are reminding me of all the great books I still want to read this year!
