The Broke and the Bookish and is a chance for everyone to get to know fellow bloggers and share lists. I love lists. Every week is a different list.
This week is Top Ten books to read if you're just not feeling the love.
I get it. It's Valentines Day. Share the love and post photos all over social media of what your OH had got you. I don't know about you, but I can only take so much romance before I get bored and start rolling my eyes, especially as it feels all the more contrived on the 14th February.
So, for my fellow un-romantics out there here are my top ten books to read on your own Anti-Valentines Day, along with five words to give you a hint about what to expect when you crack it open. And no, they're not all horror.
Family, isolation, chilling, mythology, fear.
Romance, history, partying, summer, horror.
Family, revenge, power, beauty, magic.
Swashbuckling adventure. Love, danger, life.
Thrilling, real, eerie, attraction, belief.
Beauty, power, property, friendship, freedom.
Family, Ouija, evil, dolls, isolation.
Boarding-school, monsters, family, friends, Christmas.
Mystery, thriller, stowaway, missing, secrets.
