Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme run by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week, the topic is “Top Ten Books People Have Been Telling You That You MUST Read”. I love seeing other readers and bloggers fangirling over their new -and old- favourites. I can’t help but be swept away with their enthusiasm, and I’ve found so many awesome books following their recommendations. These ten books are the tip of a very long list of books that I’ve been recommended to read more than once. I own, but haven’t read a couple of them. Hopefully I’ll love them and I’ll be able to join in on the fangirling soon!
Every single person that I’ve come into contact with that has read the Harry Potter series has told me I need to read it ASAP. It’s taken a long time, but I’ve finally started it! Yeah, the addiction has begun!
I’m one of the rare bloggers that hasn’t read Anna and the French Kiss. I know the third book has just been released, and I’m going to have to listen to the hype and start this series soon. I’m almost positive I’ll love it.
So many people have told be The Bronze Horseman is one of the best romance stories they’ve ever read. So, why haven’t I listened and read it yet? The page count. It’s off putting! And this is coming from she who has the entire Harry Potter collection on her shelves, and isn’t intimidated to read every word, even though The Bronze Horseman is shorter… Yeah, my logic makes no sense! But in seriousness, this is the one out of the ten I’m most unsure of. I don’t want to invest that amount of time into the book, and end up being bored to tears!
I own a copy of both Scarlet and Splintered, and I cannot WAIT to read them both! Splintered wins the prettiest cover award in my eyes, and I have a pretty good idea that the story will match up to it.
Yeah, I’m a bit embarrassed to admit I haven’t read any of these! Darkfever and Daughter of Smoke and Bone keep cropping up so often, with so much praise and love attached to both. Ten Tiny Breaths is another one that has so much love around it.
I still love the dystopian genre, even if it’s become a bit over-populated as of late. Legend has been on the periphery of my reading list for so long, and I have to try and read this ASAP. Anna Dressed in Blood is another I have on my bookshelf, waiting to be read. It's kind of perfect with Halloween on the way...
What do you think? If you had to choose one to read right now, which one would it be? (I’m leaning toward Splintered or Scarlet!)
If you have a TTT post, feel free to leave a link so I can stop by! Happy Reading!
