Top Ten Tuesday: Most Recommended

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic. I’m a huge fan of lists, so this meme is right up my alley! 


This week’s topic is Top Ten Books I Recommend The Most.  I’ve decided to break these down into categories.
So here they are, the Top Ten Books I Recommend The Most…
…To Biography Lovers
Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand
…To Dystopian Lovers


The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins



The Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld
…To Techy/Gamer Peeps
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (I just read this one but I’ve already recommended it to several people! Review to come soon!)
…To Lovers of Retellings
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Wicked by Gregory Maguire
…To Lovers of YA Contemporaries
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta


Anything by John Green (Shown here, all of John’s individual novels:  Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns, and The Fault in Our Stars)



Anything by David Levithan (Pictured here: Boy Meets Boy, Love is the Higher Law, The Lover’s Dictionary and Every Day)
…To Everyone

So, what books do you recommend the most?  Let me know, or leave a link to your TTT in the comments, and I’ll stop by your blog!

    I recommend a lot of these, too! I just got a friend to read The Hunger Games series.

    Unfortunately, I didn't get very far in Wicked, but I did have the opportunity to see it on Broadway, and that was fantastic!

    Cinder is on my TBR list and I'm number 60 something at the library requesting The Fault in Our Stars. I still haven't read Harry Potter, but my goal is read the first one by June.

    Some great recommendations here! I'd like to get into the Uglies series. The Hunger Games and Cinder were pretty special, too.

    I love how you broke your top ten down into genres! All those John Green books make a confident recommendation. You're adding to my wish list by the minute.

    Obviously HP and THG and Readly Player One (sooooo glad you loved this one!) are excellent choices and I have you to thank for Cinder :)
