Good morning fellow bookworms! It’s Tuesday AKA time for Top Ten Tuesday, which is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten Books I Recommend the Most. Should be easy! These are the books that I buy spare copies of when I find them used and cheap, just so I can give them out to people to read. They’re all amazing.
1. Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon – Are you surprised? Of course not! I’ve been beating ya’ll over the head about how awesome this series is for years! READ IT. You’ll thank me for giving you Jamie & Claire.
2. Tales of the Ketty Jay series by Chris Wooding – This has been my newest favorite series to gush about. PLEASE SOMEONE READ THE FIRST BOOK (Retribution Falls) AND CHAT WITH ME!!!
3. Lamb by Christopher Moore – This is probably the book I’ve been most successful at getting other people to read – I talked my friend, my honeyman, and my sister all into reading it and they all enjoyed it. Cause it’s full of hilariousness and awesome. Sadly, I haven’t read it in several years which means I’ve never reviewed it on here. I’m hoping to correct that this year.
4. He’s Just Not That Into You by Greg Behrendt – This is probably one of the only “self-help” type of books that I own, but I’m constantly recommending it to female friends and family members who are hung up on a guy that is CLEARLY not worth their time. I also highly recommend It’s Called a Break-Up Because It’s Broken for girls just getting out of relationships. These books are funny and make you feel awesome and sassy!
5. Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie – My favorite romance recommendtion, because it’s the best one ever! I ❤ Min & Cal.
6. Newsflesh trilogy by Mira Grant – This is probably my favorite zombie recommendation. It’s SO. GOOD. Apparently there are also a few Newsflesh novellas out too, but they’re only available as stupid e-books, so I’m hoping a collection of them in print-form comes out sometime.
7. The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons – This is one of my favorite historical fiction suggestions. You will laugh and cry (mostly cry) for Tatiana and Alexander, but seriously the pages just fly by.
8. Beauty Queens by Libba Bray – OMG the laughs! This book brings the humor, satire, and girl-power at full force. I totally recommend it to young teen girls, but it’s fun for everyone.
9. The Autobiography of Malcolx X by Malcolm X & Alex Haley – This is probably my favorite autobiography, and I like to encourage people to read it. It’s fascinating and eye-opening, and Malcolm X does not get nearly as much attention as MLK Jr. when it comes to talking about the Civil Rights movement.
10. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss – This is my FAVORITE epic fantasy to suggest to people. I’ve only convinced one person to read it so far- a friend of the honeyman’s, who really enjoyed it. For real, do yourself a favor and read it. It’s beautiful.
Yup, those are definitely some of the books that I’m CONSTANTLY trying to get people to read.
Alrighty, now it’s time for you to suggest some of your favorite recommendations to me! Leave me a comment and tell me what some of your favorite books to recommend are!
