Top Ten Tuesday books/ series I would recommend to someone who says don’t like to read.


 


Hi! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by Jana @thatartsyreadergirl. This weekly meme was born out of a love of lists and bringing the book blogging community together. Each week, Jana will post a topic, and we will all make a list based on that topic. This week, the topic is Books Written Before I Was Born (These can be books you’ve read or want to read!) (submitted by Davida Chazan @ The Chocolate Lady’s Book Review Blog). I wasn’t feeling this, and so I went through and found a post from The Broke & the Bookish, and I did that. The original post can be found here. I thought I would recommend some books from some of my favorite genres.

 

The Classics

1- Pride & Prejudice

This is one of my favorite classics, and when making my list this week, I knew I needed to include it. The reason is that I think this is one of the best books by Jane Austen, and we use the story in a lot of modern media.

2- To Kill A Mocking Bird

I was so surprised by how much I loved this book. I would recommend this because it is a classic, but at times, it reads like a story ahead of its time.

3- Jane Eyre

 

Another one of my favorite classics needed to make the list. I would hand/ recommend this book because of the mysterious, and gothic vibes the book has. I think a non-reader would like those if they could get into the story.

YA

4- Foolish Hearts

 

This book came out in more recent years, but I just love it. I think someone who doesn’t read would like this because the plot is easy to follow, and the characters are memorable.  

5- The Hunger Games

 

I loved The Hunger Games series growing up. I think a non-reader would love them because it’s dystopian, and they are action packed. 

6- Fangirl

Everyone probably thought that my favorite YA book would end up on this list. Again, this book is easy to follow because of the plot, and the characters are memorable. I feel a non-reader could relate to Cath’s love of fandom in some way.

7- The Lunar Chronicles

For a reader that would want some Sci-Fi and Dystopia, I would recommend/ hand this one. I devoured the four major books in this trilogy last year. The books are action-packed, and it has an array of characters.

Adult

8- Red, White & Royal Blue

I read this book last summer, and I fell in love with it. I would recommend this because it has political and personal drama, and it talks about love. This is also a book that would diversify the non-readers list because it is m/m romance.   

9- In A Holidaze

I loved this book so much last December. I would recommend this/ hand it to a non-reader because Groundhog Day is a known movie, and so they would have some background. I think they would enjoy the plot and the characters as well.

Middle Grade

10- Percy Jackson and anything in that universe

 Who says that you need to be 10-13 to read Middle Grade? I read several books as an adult, and I loved them so much. These books have action, and a large cast with some diversity.

    1. I might toss it on my tbr for this year. It's been years since I've read it. I might pair it with the Lizzie Bennet book for two rereads.

Top Ten Tuesday –Favorite Couples (Valentine’s Day /Love Freebie)

  Hi! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by Jana @ thatartsyreadergirl. . This meme was born out of a love of lists and bringing the book blogging community together. I love doing this meme because it gives me a chance to bond with other bloggers. Every week, Jana will post a topic, and we bloggers will make a post with our list on the topic, or a different one. This week it was Valentines / Love, so I wanted to do a post on favorite couples. I may have done a similar post last year, but I know that there are some new couples on this list.  1- Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy- Pride & Prejudice   This is the only classic couple on this list. I enjoy their relationship because the two characters have little in common, and yet by the end of the novel, they make it work. As you read Pride & Prejudice, you get to see these two find the love each of them was missing. 2- Cath and Levi–Fangirl One of my favorite YA novels needed to appear on this list. I love Cath and Levi because they balanc

Can't Wait Wednesday -Confessions of a Curious Bookseller

 Hi! Can't-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa  @wishfulendings . This meme is an offshoot of Waiting on Wednesday, which was hosted by  Jill@breakingthespine . The purpose of the meme is to feature books, usually unpublished, that we can't wait to read. This week, I'm featuring Confessions of a Curious Bookseller by Elizabeth Green. All information comes from GoodReads.  Title: Confessions of a Curious Bookseller Author: Elizabeth Green Genre: Adult Contemporary Expected Publication: January 1st, 2021  Add to Goodreads:  Here Goodreads Summary A heartening and uproariously funny novel of high hopes, bad choices, book love, and one woman’s best—and worst—intentions. Without question, Fawn Birchill knows that her used bookstore is the heart of West Philadelphia, a cornerstone of culture for a community that, for the past twenty years, has found the quirkiness absolutely charming. When an amicable young indie bookseller invades her block, Fawn is convinced that his cushy couch

Top Ten Tuesday-Books I want to reread

Hi! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by  Jana@thatartsyreadergirl . This meme was born out of a love of lists and brings the book blogging community together. Each week Jana posts a topic, and we book bloggers write a response. This week, it's books I want to reread.  1- Pride & Prejudice   This is a classic I’ve read twice, I think? At least once, anyway, I love this novel so much. My favorite character in the book is Lizzie. I also miss the story. Maybe in 2021? Anyway, I miss this book and I want to reread it. 2- Foolish Hearts   I read this book in the summer of 2019. I had been in a bit of a slump at the time, so this pulled me out of it. I read the novel in about two weeks, and I just loved it so much. My favorite character is Claudia, and I want to revisit the book. That this involves theatre is another reason I need to reread this book ASAP. 3- After Anatevka   I know I talk about this book so much on the blog. I read this a few years ago now, and I want to revisit the charact
