Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week’s topic is Top Ten Tuesday REWIND, to pick a topic that we either missed or want to revisit. Since I haven’t done one of these before, I had a lot of fun going through past topics.

Top Ten Books I’d Hand to Someone Who Says They Don’t Like to Read

1. I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga

I would totally recommend this book to someone looking for a mystery/thriller, and who doesn’t mind violence. I love love loved this book and I recommend it to people all the time!

2. & 3. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins and Just One Day by Gayle Forman

Oh my, do I love these books. I’d recommend these to someone looking for a contemporary read, who likes romance and Paris!

4. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

I’d recommend this to someone who is looking for a non-YA read, a really twisty mystery, and messy characters.

5. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

This book would be a great read for people who like technology, science fiction, and video games – even more so for those who love 80s pop culture!

6. & 7. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake and Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan

These two (and Girl of Nightmares, Anna’s sequel) are recommended for fans of YA paranormal stories.

8. The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle

This is my all-time favourite book so I would pretty much recommend it to anyone! The writing is beautiful, the story makes me laugh, cry, smile, and want to read it again as soon as I’ve finished. I would particularly recommend it to people interested in fantasy but not epic, multi-volume tomes.

9. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

I would recommend this to anyone who hasn’t read it yet, particularly people who like action and adventure. And if they like this one, I’d recommend the rest of the series, Catching Fire and Mockingjay!

10. World  War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks

This would be my obvious recommended read to fans of The Walking Dead and zombies!
