Top 10 Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created 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.
This week’s theme is Top 10 Reasons I Love X. I love and hate this theme at the same time there are so many things I can talk about how do I choose just one? I’ve decided to go off the book realm and choose….DISNEY

10. Walt Disney followed his dreams

For me Disney is timeless and wonderful and I have never associated Disney with anything but happy memories. The movies are amazing and unique with a wonderful set of memorable characters. I admire Walt for taking nothing and turning it into a lifestyle. I love that just like books my love of Disney has helped to introduce me to cool new people.
What was your Top 10 list this week?
XOXO,

First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday

Every Tuesday Bibliophile by the Sea hosts a meme where you can share the first paragraph (or few) of something you’re currently reading or about to read. Since I couldn’t think of 3 much less 10 books I bought on a whim for Top Ten Tuesday I decided to do this one instead.

The next book I have on my TBR pile is:

Consider The Dragon

A dragon was dead.

A giant black and purple fire-breathing dragon from the very pits of hell itself was dead somewhere outside the castle. Thorns were falling from the battlements like rain, making curiously pleasant wooden sounds on the grounds of the bailey. Many strange and dire things were happening to an ancient keep that had already endured enough unusual treatment for the past sixteen years.

The handsome prince had killed the dragon with the help of the three strange little fairies he now followed. Without them, he would have done no good whatsoever.

What do you guys think so far? I love fairy tale retellings and you don’t come across too many sleeping beauty ones in YA so I’m pretty excited for this one.
