10 9 Books I'd Hand to Someone Who Says They Don't Like To Read
- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (duh! this appears on ALL my lists haha) But seriously it's so full of adventure it's sure to pull in the reluctant reader.
- Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert I know I know it isn't 2008 anymore, but it seems everyone who reads the books loves it. Plus, I cannot get enough of travel memoirs. It's like a whole new level of escapist reading because someone went out and actually did these incredible things.
- The Help by Kathryn Stockett Another one of those books that seem to span across the board and yes I am aware of the controversy but it still seems to evoke good strong feelings out of people.
- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak Intriguing, interesting, and so full of depth. There is something for every level or taste of reader.
- The Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling If there are people still left on earth who haven't read them, then yes I will give them these books to read.
- Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen Now *this* is a book. Wonderfully written and is so unique with a beautiful story underneath.
- The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon I have not met a person who has read this and didn't like. Good enough for me.
- The Outsiders by SE Hinton When I think of classics and YA, this book is front and center, like a cornerstone of great lit. It is a cryin' shame if kids don't get to experience this book.
- Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen This book is pure love. It's whimsical and full of joy. I don't always read uplifting book but when I do, it's this one.
