Top Ten Tuesday (11)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there will be a new topic and a new list to make. Be sure to stop by the host blog to see all of the other blogs participating!

This week's topic:
Top Ten Books I'd Recommend To Someone Who Doesn't Read X

Since this is a mostly-YA blog, my list is all about YA books.

*Disclaimer - I think Harry Potter, Hunger Games, and Twilight should be on this list. I'm omitting them only because I think most people have read them whether they read YA or not.*

1. Nightshade Trilogy by Andrea Cremer - This is one of my favorite YA trilogies. The story is very inventive and the writing is excellent.

2. Firelight and Vanish by Sophie Jordan - Love these books! Plus they're about dragons.

3. Delirium by Lauren Oliver - A different kind of dystopian novel with beautiful writing.

4. The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare - I say this even though I haven't read all the books that are out. The world and characters are just so memorable.

5. Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma - This book is amazing. Really, there aren't words.

6. Never Eighteen by Megan Bostic - This book really makes you think about life.

7. Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins - These books are the perfect romantic comedies. I fell in love with the settings, the characters, and the love stories.

8. Blood Red Road by Moira Young - Written unlike any other book, the primitive language draws you in but the story keeps you turning pages.

9. Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton - One of the best angel books I've read. I love the action, the folklore, and Will.

10. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin - One of the most well-crafted mysteries I've read. This book was impossible to put down.

  1. Great choice of books this week. I have to agree about Forbidden - words cannot describe. I was so heartbroken at the end.

    Happy reading!

  2. You disclaimer is awesome. YA is awesome. I still need to read some of these and I will have to move some of them up my tbr list. Thanks for sharing. =]
    Here is My Top Ten

  3. I also had Anna/Lola and Forbidden. I'm glad to see more love for Forbidden, I definitely think it's a book that that would challenge views that people thought were unshakable.

  4. Loving this! There are so many books on your list that I loved - like The Mortal Instrument series.

  5. I really need to read Blood Red Road!

  6. Anna was such a great book. Her & Etienne are just ADORABLE!
