Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Recommend the Most

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Young Adult Books:

The Fault in Our Stars by John GreenDelirium by Lauren OliverShatter Me by Tahereh MafiTiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

1. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: I think everyone should read this book and I recommend it to anyone who will listen. The only people I wouldn’t recommend it to are kids who are too young—in that case, I will wait a few years before I set about convincing them. Seriously, if you haven’t yet, READ IT! (My review here)

2. Delirium by Lauren Oliver: Such a great story by a great writer. I have nothing but love for this book and the whole trilogy. (My review here)

3. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi: I love Mafi’s writing—it’s so different from anything else I’ve ever read. I recommend it for that reason alone, but the high-octane action and sizzling love story make it an easy recommendation, too. (My review here)

4. Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson:  I don’t think this book gets enough attention. It’s a really beautiful story and one I recommend often, especially to anyone who loves Peter Pan. (My review here)

Middle Grade Books:

Pendragon 1Artemis FowlHarry Potter and the Philosopher's StoneInkheart

5. Pendragon: The Merchant of Death by D.J. MacHale: This series always kept me on the edge of my seat. Ten books—ten years—and I still never lost interest. That, my friend, is the making of a great series. I recommend this to all young readers who like action, adventure or fantasy (or any combination thereof).

6. Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer: So funny and fantastic! I honestly cannot think of one thing not to love about the AF series.

7. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling: I really have no reason to recommend this book, and all the rest of them, anymore as most people I come in contact with have read them; however, when I do meet such a deprived individual you can bet I sing its praises.

8. Inkheart by Cornelia Funke: If you love books and fantasy, you will love Inkheart. It totally speaks to the heart of booklovers. (My movie comparison here)

Picture Books:

Grandma and the PiratesLost and Found by Oliver Jeffers

9. Grandma and the Pirates by Phoebe Gilman: Pirates with a love of noodle pudding. What’s not to love?

10. Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers: A charming story with beautiful illustrations make this book an easy recommendation. (My review here)
