Top Ten Tuesdays #4

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.

Top 10 9 Books I'd Hand to Someone Who Says They Don't Like To Read

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak Intriguing, interesting, and so full of depth. There is something for every level or taste of reader.
  5. 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.
  6. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen Now *this* is a book. Wonderfully written and is so unique with a beautiful story underneath.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
