Top Ten Tuesday – 10 Books I’d Love to Share with Everyone

 

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is actually Books That I Refuse to Let Anyone Touch but I just drew a blank on this one.  While I am picky about lending out books, I can’t really say that there are any that are completely off limits. So instead of doing the assigned topic, I decided to go a little off script and talk about books I wish I could share with everyone.  In my mind, I believe that everyone could be a reader if they just found the right book and/or genre to get them hooked.

So, what I have here is a selection of some of my favorite reads that I’d consider a “starter kit” of books to explore different genres.  I’ve got a mix of classics that didn’t make me cringe, thrillers that kept me on the edge of my seat, as well as fantasy and sci fi that transported me to other worlds, and contemporary novels that just left me with a smile on my face.

    Ooh books I want everyone to read, that’s tough! For me that would probably be A Darker Shade of Magic, The Book Thief, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson and Skulduggery Pleasant, they’re my favourite books/series and I’d love to be able to share them with as many people as possible!

      I’ve never had the best luck loaning out books, but I do love to buy books for others or give them away if I happen to have an extra copy of a beloved book.

    So many great picks! You definitely included some of my all-time favorites. Books that impacted me in one way or another. Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda, The Nightingale, The Kiss Quotient, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo… all of those are so meaningful to me.
