Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and Bookish.
This weeks topic: Top ten books I’d hand to someone who doesn’t read.
This is a tough one. I don’t think there is a single book out there that I could recommend to absolutely everyone I came across that doesn’t read. So, I’m going to put down what type of person I would recommend the book for.
1. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (and the rest of course!) by JK Rowling – To anyone except people like my dad. This is probably the closest to a universally recommended book. I can’t really explain what type of person my dad is, I just know that if my dad ever asked me for a book recommendation I would not suggest Harry Potter. (I’m sure there are tons of people that can thank Harry Potter and Rowling for getting them back into reading.)
2. Killing Lincoln by Bill O’Reilly – To anyone who is just like my dad. My dad is a newspaper guy. I don’t know how else to explain it. I just know that there are two kinds of people. Those who did (will) read Harry Potter and those who haven’t (won’t) read Harry Potter.
3. The Help by Kathryn Stockett – To anyone really, but probably mostly women.
4. The Client by John Grisham – To anyone who likes Law & Order.
5. The Shack by William Young – To anyone at my church.
6. Can You Keep A Secret? by Sophie Kinsella – To anyone who likes Clueless, The Wedding Planner, etc.
7. Life as We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer – To anyone who loves post-apocalyptic movies as much as I do.
8. The Choice by Nicholas Sparks – To anyone who loved the movie The Notebook.
9. The Host by Stephanie Meyer – To anyone who loved The Body Snatchers (Twilight Zone).
10. Delirium by Lauren Oliver – To my friend Megan, because she doesn’t read and criticized the fact that I was reading this book. Also to anyone else who would like a good romance with a twist.
