Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke & the Bookish.
For The Male Reluctant Reader…
1. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling. An obvious choice for a reason. If this series can’t teach you about the power of reading – you’re a lost cause, my friend.
2. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. It’s a classic for a reason. I remember reading this in school and everyone pretending not to really like it (even though they totally did).
3. Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson. Best world building in a fantasy series ever. This trilogy is one of my favorites of all time. A GREAT incentive to read three extremely long books, for sure!
4. Batman: The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller. Hey, graphic novels totally count. This one is full of awesome. It is really dark, and the drawings and writing are both equally spectacular.
5. The Long Walk by Stephen King. A really great dystopian from the master storyteller. This one will have you realizing how great life really is!
And For the Gals Who Don’t Read…
6. Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery. This was my first book love – so I know it can be someone else’s!
7. A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Sara Crewe reminds me a lot of Anne Shirley, but this book is completely different. So easy to fall into the story and switch between the worlds of England and India.
8. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. I read this countless times growing up, I loved all four of the March sisters! (Although I’m totally in camp WTH with the way things ended).
9. Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost. If you’re gonna buy into the whole vampire craze – this is the book to do it with! Holy guacamole, it is hot. The characters dynamic and fabulous. Seriously, this series is awesome.
10. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. This one would be great for guys too. But no one can appreciate a female kickass heroine like another female! I’ve pushed this on a lot of people lately, all more willing to read it since the movie is coming out soon.
