Top Ten Tuesday: The Big List

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish


Here is the list of books I'd recommend to all my fellow bloggers.

Anya's Ghost: If anyone is looking to spice up their reading with a graphic novel, this book is a nice start. The drawings are really well done and the character is tough, rebellious and absolutely adorable.

The Fault in Our Stars: If anyone wants to cry. Make sure you are in the mood for a sad/romantic story that will leave you weeping.
 White Oleander: Honestly, I would qualify this book as NA. The subject is violent and mature but the main character is a teenager and the theme is based around a coming of age story where one must struggle without any guidance.
 The Lovely Bones: This book is very intense emotionally. Although there is a movie, the film only brushed on the character of the mother, while the book really delves into it. Also, the ending might shock you.
 The Hunger Games: I believe this was the very first Dystopia I read (it took me a while to read The Giver).  The story is just incredible and I love to see a badass female lead.
Cinder: This book is a little jem. The first re-telling of Cinderella I really enjoyed. 


  1. Some great sounding books! I have only read The Hunger Games which I can't believe I didn't add into my list! It was my first Dystopian aswell, actually still haven't read The Giver yet. It's on my TBR just haven't gotten around to it.

    Thanks for this list I added them all to my TBR, but Hunger Games(already read) and Cinder(own just haven't read).

  2. I'm currently reading Cinder and I do believe it will be making it on an update of my most recommended list. I loved The Fault in Our Stars also. I replied back to your comment.

  3. The Fault in Our Stars should most definitely come with a box of tissues. I love that book so much. It was a no-brainer add to my list as well. I didn't feel like I needed to add The Hunger Games to my list because it is so mainstream nowadays, but if I think about it, to this day I am still demanding all my friends read it.

    My Top Ten! :)

  4. So nice to see a graphic novel on the list! I have a couple on mine. Lots of great books, most of which I have read!

    My Top Ten

  5. I've read four of these and enjoyed them all. I haven't heard of ANYA'S GHOST, but it sounds really good. I'll have to check it out.

  6. I remember reading White Oleander a few years ago and linking it :-)

    I didn't like The Fault in Our Stars, though. But the scene of Gus in the car did almost make me... like, water my eyes.
