Top Ten Books I Recommend The Most
1. The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson - I know I gush about this book on a regular basis, but I cannot recommend The Sky is Everywhere enough. It has some of the most beautiful, poetic writing I have ever read, and it has to be, hands down, my favorite YA contemporary.
2. This Is Not a Test by Courtney Summers - This is the zombie book for people who don't like zombies. The zombies definitely take a backseat in This Is Not a Test. Trust me. It's all about the humans in this book, and I thought this book was fantastic.
3. Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor - Daughter of Smoke & Bone impressed me beyond words. I have higher standards now because of this book.
4. The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness - I recommend this to anyone who will listen because it deserves as much recognition as possible. This is a new favorite and I cannot wait to finish the series. I just hate knowing it will be over for good.
5. The Book Thief by Markus Zuzak - I've actually been really successful at recommending this book. My friend borrowed it from my shelf, and then her mom read it and loved it, and now my boyfriend has borrowed it. It's one of the first books that I think of when anyone wants a book recommendation. It's that good.
6. The Passage by Justin Cronin - It's a longggg book, but it's definitely worth it. My family loves it, and I recommend it to any Stephen King fans I can find.
7. The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls - This was an emotional book, but just wonderful in every way. I need to reread this soon. I recommend it to well, just about everyone I can.
8. The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova - This is historical fiction at its finest. I am so happy an old friend of mine recommended this to me because The Historian has to be one of my favorite reads of all time, and it's another book that's worth reading despite its huge size. I need to reread this also. It's been way too long.
9. Any book by Stephen King - I even recommend books that I have yet to read by him. Because it's Stephen King. Nuff said.
10. Just about any classic I've read and loved - So that's The Great Gatsby, Jane Eyre, Dracula and a long list of classic novels that I will always cherish and recommend to anyone willing to listen.
