Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Recommend the Most

March 26, 2013 Top Ten Tuesday 32


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the awesome people at The Broke and Bookish, who love lists as much as I do!

Top Ten Books I Recommend the Most

Obviously I recommend a lot of books. Because books are awesome! It was surprisingly hard to make this list though because I recommend different books to different people.


1. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

This is my number one recommended book right now. I’m pretty much telling everyone and anyone that they need to read it because seriously this book is AMAZING!!!

2. Size 12 is Not Fat by Meg Cabot

I love this series so very much that I can’t help but want people to read it.

3. Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie

Anytime that someone is looking for a cute and fun book I recommend one of Jennifer Crusie’s. Bet Me is my favorite.

4. Harry Potter by JK Rowling

I know this seems silly, but not everyone has read Harry Potter. Whenever I find out someone hasn’t read Harry Potter I will do whatever I can to get them to read it. In fact my whole book club ganged up on another book club member to read them, and she loves them! Katie’s currently reading the last book and I couldn’t be more excited!

5. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

This book blew me away! I just reread it for book club and it was even better the second time around. Seriously guys this book is so good I even recommended it to my brother!


6. Things I Can’t Forget by Miranda Kenneally

All of Kenneally’s books are amazing but this one goes beyond amazing.

7. Can You Keep a Secret by Sophie Kinsella

Another cute and fun read that I recommend a lot.

8. Divergent by Veronica Roth

I recommend this one all the to a lot of people. I most recently recommended this to my mom, but then I had to tell her not to read it because she recently freaked out on me about having to wait a year for the next book in a series. I’ve learned my lesson.

9. Alive by Piers Paul Read

I read this way back in high school and it’s never left me. It’s one of the few non fiction books I’ve ever loved and it’s a fabulous survivor story.

10. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

I don’t have to tell you why this book is awesome, right?

    Meg Cabot, Jennifer Crusie, Miranda Kenneally, Markus Zusak, Ready Player One! Yay! I agree with all of these. HP, of course, but I don’t think I’ve actually recommended it since I was like 15, because by that point everyone who was going to read it mostly had. lol.

    I read Gone Girl recently and thought the plot was so creative! I need to get to reading The Book Thief ASAP. Have a great week!
    Happy Reading,

    FAB list, though I kind of feel like Harry Potter is a given. If you haven’t read it, somebody’s been shoving it in your face to do so. ;)

    Gone Girl – so freaking awesome.

  4. Helène Ouwehand

    You’re absolutely right about Harry Potter! That’s why I included that series as well! And we share Can You Keep A Secret? Such a fun read! Great list.

    Heck yeah to The Book Thief and HP (of course)! Divergent has popped up on everyone’s list, and I feel ridiculously ashamed that I haven’t read it yet. I have every intention to over the summer… along with 800 other books that have been recommended to me ;) Great list!

  6. Leela

    I love all you recommendations. i have most of them in my TBR pile and the worst of all, I POSSESS the books and they are there unread :'(

  7. Susan

    I’ve got a couple of these on my list, too! GONE GIRL is a funny one because, while I really liked it, several people I’ve recommended it to did not. I guess it goes back to different people liking different kinds of books. It’s always tough to know what people will/will not like, you know?

  8. Jennifer @ Feminist Fairy Tale Reviews

    So many amazing books on this list! I particularly adore Divergent, Size 12 is Not Fat, and Bet Me. Yeah for HP too! I’m still on the fence about Gone Girl, but I will probably end up checking out. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Lucy

    I just finished Stealing Parker so now I can’t wait to read Things I Can’t Forget!
    I have also been wanting to read a Meg Cabot book but like always I am pretty slow at that. I have also heard mixed things about her… But now that you say this is a good one I’ll have to check it out!

  10. Andrea @ The Overstuffed Bookcase

    Lol, that’s funny about your mom freaking out that she had to wait a year. Did you tell her how a lot of book bloggers get ARCs BEFORE the book comes out and we might have to wait longer??? She’d probably faint. ;)

    I have The Book Thief and I really need to read it. And I don’t understand people who haven’t read Harry Potter. It just blows my mind. :)

    I haven’t stopped recommending Ready Player One to people because I keep thinking of more people who would love it! And I just finished my re-listen of Bet Me and I think I loved it more the second time around!

    Favorite quote from Bet Me “I have an attack cat and I’m accessing my inner bitch all the time now so you’ll never survive here!”
