Top Ten Tuesday: Books that Make You Think

September 11, 2012 Meme, Top Ten Tuesday 12

PhotobucketTop Ten Tuesday is an weekly meme created by the awesome people at The Broke and Bookish, who love lists as much as I do.

Top Ten Books That Make You Think (About The World, People, Life, etc.)

I think all books make you think in some way. Some books just make you think more, or about more serious topics.

    I totally agree with all your books that made you think about life! And I loved The Hatchett as a kid. So good. And My Side of the Mountain!!!!!!

    Nice list! I’ve only read the Hunger Games, but I’ve heard of the rest and some are on my wish list! I love books that make you think!

    Interesting choices, I couldn’t agree with you more about The Help. Can I mention the book that had me thinking about life in general? The 5 People You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom is a wonderfully thought provoking book, if you haven’t read it, I can highly recommend it.

    I loved To Kill A Mocking Bird! And I’ve been meaning to read The Perks of Being A Wallflower for YEARS!!! I thought I might try to read it during banned book week, but I’m so behind on my reading that I’m not sure I’ll get to it.
