If you’ve been following the bookish community, you might have noticed a couple of recent cases in which this happened. Let me refresh your memory 🙂

Top 10 Tuesday: My Bookish Confessions

I love talking about myself! I mean… who doesn’t? We bloggers are all somewhat narcissists like that 😛 Lucky for us, this week theme allows us to do so ♥

SPARKLING LETTERS BOOK BLOG- TOP 10 TUESDAY - MY BOOKISH CONFESSIONS

 

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!

This week theme is Ten Facts About Me. The facts could be book related or general or really anything we want to talk about. So today I choose the theme My Bookish Confessions ♣ Everyone has at least one (or many) bookish secrets, so I’ll let you know mine and in return, I expect to know some of yours 😛

I’m kind of ashamed but I can’t help it… One’s taste in books reallyyy define whether we could be book friends or not </3 Continue reading
