Top Ten Tuesday (TTT) brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish.
The hiatus continues for the lovely ladies over at the Broke and the Bookish, leaving us with another open topic week here at TTT.
So Sunday night I started browsing through the TV guide and I realized that the BBC’s Broadchurch Season 3 (and final season, sob!) is FINALLY showing in the US. And I had already missed three episodes. I’ve watched the first two episodes, and have not been disappointed.
If you’ve never seen it, Broadchurch is a police procedural that focuses on a small town (village?) in England. Really, really fantastic show.
Now I know you’re wondering – how exactly does my watching Broadchurch tie into a bookish TTT? I’m so glad you asked! One of my favorite mysteries to read is the police procedural, especially when it involves New Scotland Yard. Or at least set in England. And more importantly, I thought that would be a fun topic to tackle during the hiatus.
