This weeks Top Ten Tuesday
Top Ten Books Recommended to Me
1. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
Not a typical book for me, but had to give it a try when it was constantly being recommended to me. I was totally caught up in this book, and I still consider this one of my favorites.
2. Match Me If You Can by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
So glad I listened to the librarian. I read this in one day, and giggled the whole way through. A great romance!
3. City of Bones- Cassandra Clare
This one was recommended by almost every blog I follow. After so many great reviews I took the hint and got the book. One of my favorite series.
4. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
Recommended by a friend when I said I was in the mood to read a big fat juicy book I could escape in. I was definitely transported all ending with me cursing my friend for my lack of sleep, as well as the bags under my eyes. I stopped reading this series after book 3. Why? I don't have a freaking clue. Maybe because of my new found fear of big fat books...hmm?
5. Shanghai Girls by Lisa See
Read a review by a blogger I completely trust, and picked it up at my local library. Confirmed my good choice after librarian gushed about it while checking me out. I mean come on she pushed me to read Match Me If You Can, if she recommends I'm getting. She also recommended the movie Amelie to me by the way, and I love, love that movie.
6. Sloppy Firsts- Megan McCafferty
Another friend recommendation. Not done with the series yet, but i'll get to it eventually. Great young adult book. It's raw, and real.
7. Heartsick by Chelsea Cain
Recommend by blogger friend. Not a huge thriller fan, but I'm so glad I gave this a try. Need to get my hands on the latest, Night Season.
8. Firefly Lane By Kristin Hannah
Actually was recommended the author. I was just told pick any one of her books. I went with Firefly Lane because I already had a copy in my TBR, and I loved it.
9. The Help by Kathryn Stockett
This one was recommended on the PBS forum. So many great characters. Just a all around good solid read.
10. I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
Recommend by someone at a bookstore. It was in the sale books for a dollar, and she said that was bargain because the story was at least worth 10 dollars. How can you not buy the book after that, and for a buck to boot.
The book that has been most recommended to me is the one book I haven't read...Harry Potter. I've gotten blank stares when I mention that I've never read any of them, then a "OMG". Maybe this summer.
