Top Ten Tuesday | Books I Recommend

Hosted by Broke & The Bookish

This week Broke & The Bookish ask, which 10 books do you recommend to people the most?

1. Morganville Vampires - Rachel Caine.
I just love love love these books! They're so easy to read and even easier to fall in love with. With each new book brings drama, excitement, adventure and the occasional emotional breakdown that doesn't seem like it will ever end.. Fantastic series.

2. Divergent/Insurgent - Veronica Roth.
I have a hard time describing these books and usually end up just flailing around making odd noises. Brilliant beyond words.

3. The Fault in our Stars - John Green.
Whatever you do, don't read this in public. Tears will always ensue. One of the most heartfelt, heartbreaking books I have ever read.

4. Study Series - Maria V Snyder.
I've got a fair few people to read these now and i'm planning on re-reading them myself soon! Magic, unlikely romance, badass women and a whole lot of fantasy. What's not to love?

5. Anything by Rachel Cohn/David Levithan.
These two write so perfectly together! I've read all of their collaborative works now and I just can't get enough. They're so.. human. Real life personified.


6. Slated - Teri Terry.
This was a random book buy that I will never forget. I just loved every minute of it. Corrupt governments, brave young adults and a passion to find the truth. YES! Book 2 is released next month too!

7. The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins.
These books are so popular now that they don't even need a description.

8. My Sister's Keeper - Jodi Picoult
This has been a long time favourite for many years now. Gripping, disturbing and I love nothing more than a book that asks questions of it's readers as well as it's characters. Picoult is an incredible writer and I don't think i'll ever stop reading her books.

9. The Host - Stephenie Meyer.
The lesser known Meyer novel just doesn't get as much love as it deserves sitting in the shadow of the Twilight saga. I was completely blown away by characterizations and settings and with the movie release in the next few days, everyone should take a look at the book!

10. Nineteen Eighty-Four - George Orwell.
I'm a dystopian fiction lover and what is better than Orwell's masterpiece? A pretty disturbing book that isn't really a 'fun' read but it's a definite MUST read in your life, especially if you're a dystopian fan. Again, another book that really does make you stop and think.
