This week the topic is 10 Books for People Who Don’t Read X. I have decided to make my list for people who don’t read non-contemporary novels. See, I was going to make it for people who don’t read young adult but I wanted to have a bit of a wider spectrum than just YA. This way I can incorporate MG and Adult titles!
So, in no particular order, my top ten picks are;
1. Wicked by Gregory Maguire
I read and love this novel and have the next two in the Oz series – but haven’t read it yet. Still, this book is so good that it spawned an award winning Broadway show.2. Stray and the Shifters series by Rachel Vincent
You want something with sexy times, action, and a lot of bite, this is the book (and series) for you. Faythe is a kick ass heroine who can shift into a werecat – enough said.3. Uglies (and following books) by Scott Westerfeld
This is a fantastic dystopian that makes you think about just how much society thinks about how beauty = good.
4. The Lightning Thief and the Percy Jackson series as a whole by Rick Riodan
Reminiscent of the Harry Potter series, these books grow with the reader and appeal to adults as well. Personally it’s a favourite of mine.5. Soulless and the Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger
Steampunk with weres, vamps, and ghosts plus one amazing main character who will smack you with her umbrella if you get out of line.6. Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones
Oh how I love this book, (screw the following two) I don’t think I could count the ways. I loved the anime film but I adore the novel.7. Dragons or Vampires by Katie MacAlister
Not the name of a book, but rather the focus of her paranormal series’. This lady is ‘make you pee your pants’ funny while pairing that with sexy times.8. The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
It’s a great zombie book that has you on the edge of your seat for the majority of it. I have yet to read the next two, but I will soon!9. the Circle of Magic quartet by Tamora Pierce
Really, and novel by Tamora Pierce but this quartet is my favourite.10. Anything that has to do with fairy tales at all.
Do I really have to elaborate on this one?
Leave me a line and a link to your TTT post! I love seeing other people’s lists.
