Top Ten Tuesday #6: Books I Recommend The Most

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish. It was hard to narrow this list down to ten. 

I am always giving people reading recommendations and it seriously depends on what kind of books they like to read. Just so you know... I am not including Harry Potter or The Hunger Games in this list, I used to recommend those a lot, but not as much anymore because everyone has read them. Here are the top ten books I recommend the most! (It was seriously hard to pick only 10. I recommend so many books that I'm not ever sure which ones I recommend the most.)

1. I constantly tell people to read this book. I love that it has both vampires and witches. Did I mention that this book rocks?

2. I badgered my friend relentlessly until she finally read this book. That probably tells you a little bit about how often I recommend Divergent. If you haven't read this yet then I'm not sure what to tell you.

3. I just discovered this wonderful book at the end of 2012 and I loved it! Seriously, read it.

4. I will always be a fan of this series. Even though this is an older series I'm still an active advocate.

5. My favorite of Rick Riordan series to date. Are you a fan of Greek mythology and Roman mythology? If you answered yes then you obviously need to read these.

6. A beautifully written book surrounding a suicide pact among teenagers. A lot of courtroom action in this one. Don't forget your tissues.

7.  Seriously if you haven't read this book yet you should. That is all I have to say about that.

8. This is by far one of my most favorite Stephen King novels. It blew my mind... I won't even talk about the ending. 

9. If you are ever looking for a hilarious series to start reading that has a great female lead and two sexy men then the Stephanie Plum series if for you my friend.

10. A great mystery that is wonderfully written. A must read. Have tissues nearby.

Because it is just too hard to have only 10... 
Honorable Mentions: 
- Graceling by: Kristin Cashore 
- Life of Pi by: Yann Martel 
- Blood Oath by: Christopher Farnsworth 
- Delirium by: Lauren Oliver 
- Many of the classics.


  1. #1 -- *hides head in shame* -- I want to read this one so bad, I really do, but I just realized that I haven't even finished ONE book this entire month since I have been so busy. I'm so ready to have this house in order and get back to normal!

    #2 -- *continues to hide head in shame*

    #3 -- YES! I'm so happy to see this series on your list. This was my very first YA series and I LOVE it.

    And I love books I need my tissues for -- I think that's a mark of a very good book.

    If I had my act together to do a TTT post this week The Help definitely would have made my list :)

    1. Needing tissues is for sure a mark of a very good book. :)

      Some day you will read A Discovery of Witches and then we shall talk about it all day. :) I too can't wait for my blogging friend to come back!

      The Help is an epic read. Also one of the few times I would have to say that the movie was pretty darn good and close to the book.

  2. Awesome list, Kay! I'm glad to see that Stephen King made it into your top ten. He's so amazing. And the same goes for me with regard to The Hunger Games and Harry Potter.... I recommend them to just about EVERYONE I know.

    I had a tough time with Divergent but I think it's because I read it, like, immediately after The Hunger Games series and I couldn't stop comparing the two. For me, THG always wins. I definitely plan to give it another go, though.

    A Discovery of Witches has been on my TBR list for quite some time and I'm hoping that this year I'll be able to finally start reading it.

    1. I love Stephen King and never read enough of his books.

      I can totally see how you could have a tough time reading Divergent after reading The Hunger Games. I mean I totally love Divergent but the Hunger Games is pretty epic.

      I can't wait to see what you think of A Discovery of Witches. I have heard both amazing and not so amazing reviews on it. I am a huge fan!

  3. I too had Divergent on my list! I also featured Michelle Hodkin :). Awesome list!


  4. I really need to read A Discovery of Witches and The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer! I keep meaning to and forgetting, lol. I read Divergent but felt very ho hum about it. Love your list! Thanks for your visit!

    1. Stop forgetting! lol :) Yea I have talked to a few people that were not big fans of Divergent. Thanks for stopping by.

  5. I will echo some others and agree that it is awesome to see some Stephan King on your list. I put The Stand on my list.

    I love everything Rick Riordan writes. His books are just so much fun.

    1. Rick Riordan knows how to write a good story.

  6. I keep seeing The Upcoming of Mara Dyer everywhere and I've got really curious about it. I think I might add it to my TBR list. I want to read The Lost Hero, because I love, love Greek mythology. I definitely agree with you on A Discovery of Witches, awesome book!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    1. You totally should add Mara Dyer to your TBR list! I'm so glad you love A Discovery of Witches as well!

  7. I actually did read 1-3, 6-8, and 10 so I have a head start! My mom keeps recommending the Stephanie Plum series to me but I just have not found the time to read any of them yet. Ahhhh but I'm hoping I will sometime soon. Great list! Sorry it took me so long to comment back!
