Top ten books I recommend the most.
Ooh this is a tough one. I have a hard time recommending books to people because, as a reviewer, I know there are things I don't like about certain books and I know there are certain types of books my friends don't like. With that being said, I try to get my friends to read all the time. The thing is, I read a little of everything, so I try to get different people to read different things.
Okay, enough rambling. Here's the best list I could come up with:
10. The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Nieffenegger- Oh my, I cant even express to you the love I have for this book. I re-read the ending like 4 times because I couldn't let go, and I cried and cried and cried. Wow, now that I mention it, I think I want to read it again.
9. Percy Jackson and all of the books in the series by Rick Riordan - just love, Love, LOVE Percy Jackson and all of the stories I've read by Rick Riordan.
8. Delirium Trilogy by Lauren Oliver - up until I FINALLY read Pandemonium, I wouldn't have recommended them to anyone because I didn't like Delirium. Well I've learned the error of my ways, and I'm sorry but I can deal with that one not-so-great book to get to the other two great ones plus four short stories. I did it, and now I want to go back and read them all again.
7. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - I loved these books, and they were powerful and meaningful for me, and many others too. Theres not much to say other than - read them!!
6. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer - Okay, I know, I know. The reading/blogging world has collectively fallen off of the Twilight wagon and we all hate her. I get it. But, in MY opinion, the books were well written and actually GOOD. Just because we hate Edward and Bella doesn't mean the books aren't good. And every time I hear someone say how much they love/hate the movies, I say, "oh yeah? Well have you read the books?" Just try it, you might actually like what you find.
5. Any Nora Roberts book - Like romance novels? Then please stop reading the smut and pick up a Nora Roberts novel, I beg of you. They at least have substance and a plot along with the smut.
4. My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult - What's all the hype about Jodi Picoult, you ask? Try reading this one, one of her more popular and mainstream books, ever since the movie came out. It'll give you a very good idea of what the rest of her books are like - HEARTBREAKING. This is the first Picoult novel I read and I was hooked ever since. Try it!
3. Cinder by Marissa Meyer - I just read this one earlier this month but I loved it and have been trying to recommend it to everyone.
2. The Giver by Lois Lowry - one of my favorite childhood books that followed me into adulthood. I try to get everyone to read it, but I know it isn't everyone's cup of tea.
1. HARRY POTTER by J.K. Rowling! Duhhh!! Obviously, I recommend this to everyone and anyone who will listen for a minimum of 5 seconds, sometimes even those who don't listen. I'm obsessed and they're my favorite books ever. No exaggeration either. I'm dead serious.
I love all of the books I listed above (so I hope you read them if you haven't already haha) and recommend them to those who will listen all the time.
What are your top ten fave books to recommend?!
