Top Ten Books I Recommend The Most
I absolutely love this topic.
1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Umm, obviously? After Harry Potter, it’s my favorite series ever. And in the past year, people have constantly come up to me to discuss the movie. My response is usually, read the books, they’re even better. I think I’ve gotten six people to read it of my friends & family, which is pretty good, considering they all don’t read very much.
2. Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff (review)
This series makes me go mega fangirl, so I’m still sad so many of my (blogging) friends haven’t read it. I guess I just keep thinking, if I keep putting it in my TTTs, people will eventually get the message? 😛 (And if I’ve finally gotten you excited for this one, I’m hosting a giveaway for it now!)
3. Angelfall by Susan Ee (review)
Such. A. Freaking. Epic. Read. If you haven’t read this, I don’t understand what you’re waiting for. It’s only $7 or so on Amazon. Seriously. You have no excuses.
4. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (review)
Amazing writing, heartfelt, touching… if you haven’t read this yet you seriously should. When you reach the last page you will have cried bundles and it may have changed you in the process.
5. Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout (review)
Please, everyone, discover the hotness that is Daemon and the epicness that is Katy and their irresistible love/hate relationship. Please. ♥
6. Pivot Point by Kasie West (review)
I don’t really know why I’m still so amazed by this book but I have found myself recommending it to a lot of people. I just think the concept was cool to start with, and the execution was AMAZINGLY awesome. It’s still kind of blowing my mind.
7. Just One Day by Gayle Forman (review)
I love this book to pieces. Partly because it really reflects my own experiences with the cultural difference between the Netherlands and the US. Partly because Willem is the most amazing swoon-worthy guy ever, who gets bonus points for being Dutch. Partly because Allyson’s journey towards independence is extremely heartfelt and realistic.
8. Percy Jackson & the Olympians by Rick Riordan (review)
I’m constantly surprised by how many people haven’t read this, and it makes me sad. It’s a great adventure story. If you like Harry Potter, you would like this. And if you’re turned off by it being middle grade, don’t be! It’s just tons of fun, and the characters and humor are awesome.
9. Everneath by Brodi Ashton (review)
I’ve tried to recommend this to my best friend, but couldn’t really convey how amazing it is. I don’t know, it’s just so subtle, touching, and yet beautiful. And Brodi needs to get an award for best plot twists and cliffhangers. Seriously.
10. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor (review)
Despite still not getting around to the sequel, I definitely recommend this to a lot of people just because the writing is so freaking amazing. Laini’s writing style is just… immaculate.
Honorable mentions:So I thought I should put Harry Potter on this list, but I don’t really get to recommend it to many people because mostly everyone has read it. So just consider it a given. Also, The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Shatter Me. I’d love to recommend those to people, but in those cases it’s more dependent on the person I’m talking to. Not everyone will love them.
So… which books do you recommend the most?
