Top Ten Tuesday, as always, is hosted at my other blog — The Broke & the Bookish
This week’s topic: Ten Books That Have Been Recommended To Me A Lot (And I Still Haven’t Read)
This was a hard list to narrow down but I tried to pick the ones that really stuck out to me! I feel like I’m constantly being recommended things! I LOVE LOVE LOVE though when people go out of their way to be like JAMIE THIS IS A YOU BOOK PLEASE READ IT. I love that.
My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick: If I had to pick ONE book so many people have been like “OMG THIS IS A JAMIE BOOK WHY HAVE YOU NOT READ IT” this would be it. It really does look like a book made for me!
Winger by Andrew Smith: I don’t honestly even know what this one is about but I’ve had multiple people tell me it’s a me book! I plan to get it from the library at some point!
The Piper’s Son by Melina Marchetta: This has been recommended so specifically by SOOO many people and then when I finally read Jellicoe Road and then recently Saving Francesca the shouts have gotten louder. You will be happy to know I have picked it up from the library and it is in my possession!
How To Save A Life by Sara Zarr: I’ve read Sara Zarr books before so I could see why people would rec this as a Jamie book. I think it will be too HOPEFULLY!
Aristotle and Dante Discover The Secrets Of The Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz: I got this out from the library because people said it was a me book but then I didn’t get to it and then I had people yelling at me saying WHY YOU NO READ IT?!
Something Real by Heather Demetrios: This was a widely recommended book to me in generally when I tweeted for recs for best books people had read this year but then a few people who recommended it said JAMIE BOOK. It was already on my radar but even more so after people were RAVING like that. So many people said I needed to read it!
The Survival Kit by Donna Freitas: Maybe people have recommended this as a Jamie book because it will rip your heart out potentially? And the obvious Jamie Likes Reading Books About Grief thing.
Daughter Of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor: This one hasn’t been like a OH IT IS A YOU BOOK but it seems to get recommended to me a lot. People do say they think i would like the writing also! What say you, readers? IS THIS A JAMIE BOOK? Or just a good book in general that I should give a try?
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes: I cannot tell you how many people have recommended this book to me as a must read. ALL OF TWITTER IT SEEMS SOMETIMES.
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn: Who hasn’t recommended this book to me?? Even friends who rarely read are like OMG YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK!
