Top Ten Tuesdays

Posted 10 May, 2016 by Lianne in Meme / 13 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme 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’s topic: Ten Websites I Love That Aren’t About Books

Wait, there are websites out there that aren’t about books? j/k 😛

In no particular order:

  1. Hand Luggage — I forgot how I came across their website but I love it! Got a lot of great ideas about places I want to travel to one of these days (and the accompanying photos are stunning) 🙂
  2. World of Wanderlust — Another fantastic travel blog website that I believe I first stumbled across on Bloglovin. She travels solo quite a bit so her tidbits are especially useful, but her lists and recaps on the places she’s been to are also interesting to read and keep a mental list of 🙂
  3. Good Tickle Brain — I love the way she recaps and features Shakespearean plays–they absolutely crack me up!
  4. Sarah’s Scribbles — Another one of my favourite illustrators out there! Her comics are amusing, relateable, and astute; if you haven’t checked it out, her compilation Adulthood is a Myth (review) is fantastic 😀
  5. TV Line — To keep track of all the happenings in tv land 🙂
  6. io9.com — For all my sci-fi and fantasy news, trailers, reviews, and discussions, this is one website I frequent 🙂
  7. BBC Culture — It covers a whole range of topics from art to movies to books :P, I always have a lot of fun reading up on interesting topics they focus on and lists of movies and books to check out. But browsing around this section of the BBC website, you can check out a whole array of other topics, like in its “Future” section 🙂
  8. Common Room — These fantastic ladies cover a variety of topics, from television to movies to lifestyle and recipes. Granted, I’m in the books section quite a bit but they also have an excellent podcast and the stuff they cover are great 🙂
  9. Duolingo — My way of keeping up with language learning these days 😛 I mostly use the app but I also log into the website every now and then when I’m on the laptop. It’s pretty great–language learning that’s easy and fun! I started picking up Danish this way, which was pretty cool.
  10. Neko Atsume (app) — Because cute cats, need I say more?



And those are some of my favourite websites (and one app)! What did you list for this week?

  1. I used to check out io9 all the time but lately it’s been Blastr. They’re both good sources of what’s going on though. 🙂 I should check out TVline for TV stuff, and World of Wanderlust sounds like a good travel site.

  2. Oh, gosh, I forgot all about i09 and Tor.com, my go-to sites for SF/F stuff! And Good Tickle Brain is great; I just found her via her Tumblr posts about the Folger Library. And I will check out Duolingo, which I’ve heard of elsewhere as well.

  3. WoW and Hand Luggage are also blogs that I follow! My bucket list just grow longer and longer since I followed them XD And I also use Duolingo as a way to learn language. It’s definitely the best out there!

  4. Fabulous list, Lianne. I really like how you describe Common Room (sounds like a must visit), and also who doesn’t love BBC stuff!? 🙂 TV Line is also an epic site. How else are we to know what goes down in TV land!?
