Top Ten Tuesday- Top Ten Books I Recommend

Top Ten Tuesday is a really cool original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten List that bloggers join in on answering... and today (March 26) I'm one of them :)

Today's Topic is:

Top Ten Books I Recommend The Most

I have a special page devoted to my recommendations since the start of my blog, but these are the ones that I tell people about most:
1.  Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty- Everyone needs to meet Jessica Darling.
2.  Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson- A must read for YA Contemporary ppl.
3.  The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart- Ruby Oliver, another unforgettable character.
4.  Freshman Year and Other Unnatural Disasters by Meredith Zeitlin- A book that made me laugh.

5.  Courtney Summers- all her books... I'm obsessed!!  She's really funny on twitter and tumbler too... you guys should totally follow her!
6.  Sarah Dessen- again all her books!  She's amazing... these 3 are my favs:

7.  Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn't Have) by Sarah Mlynowski- I loved this book because it reminded me of how I was when I was a teenager (except for the whole chlamydia thing).
8.  Burn for Burn by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian- A new series that I'm obsessed with.
9.  Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry- Best book of last year IMO.
10.  My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick- I just read this at the beginning of the year, but I've been recommending it ever since :)
Honorable Mentions:
TFIOS- John Green:  I don't recommend this as much as I should bc it's kind of a hard subject for some people to read about... and not knowing people's background with cancer, I don't want to rec. something that's too tough for some people to read about.
Harry Potter- JK Rowling:  I don't recommend this because everyone's already read this... otherwise I would!
Anna and the French Kiss- Stephanie Perkins:  I love it and tell people about it all the time.
The Ghost and the Goth- Stacey Kade: Cute series that I love to tell people to read if they're looking for something fun.
So there is my list... it went kind of long this week!  I guess there are a lot of books I like to tell people about :)  What's on your list?
PS- I'm getting blog make-over and am still under construction, so sorry if things here look confusing....

  7. You have so many of my favorites on your list! I looove Sloppy Firsts, Speak, and Ten Things We Did.

    My Top Ten

  8. Your blog looks AWESOME! It's fantastic.

  9. Speak is amazing, I'm glad you recommend that one a lot! Many of the others on your list have been on my TBR for some time (Sloppy Firsts, TFIOS, etc) so I guess I need to get on those :)

  10. Oh yeah, Pushing the Limits was definitely a favorite read of mine last year! I was just approve don Netgalley for Dare You To and I am so freaking excited!

    I almost listed Speak on my TTT, too, but I didn't. It's a favorite for sure, though.

  11. This is Not a Test made my TTT this week, too. And just yesterday I finally got my hands on Cracked Up To Be which I am so excited to read. Great list, lots of books I recommend all the time, too!

  12. I need to read more Sarah Dessen books! I have heard only great things about them but I have read only one or two. I also must read other books by Courtney Summers - This is Not a Test was amazing :) Great picks :)

  13. I GOT APPROVED FOR DARE YOU TO ON NETGALLEY. Oh man, I want to drop everything and READ THAT! Did you? They have the American version up.

    1. YAY!!! I'm so happy for you!! I have it and didn't read it yet. I think I got the UK version, I wonder if it's different?

  14. This is a GREAT list because I haven't read any of these. And I WANT TO read a lot of these, so now they are all going on my TBR list. Thank you! Also, the blog looks AWESOME!

  15. I'm pretty much OBSESSED with this list. I love all of the contemporary!! I NEED to read Sloppy Firsts. I feel like everyones read it and that it's one of those books you just have to read - especially if you're a contemporary fiend like me.

    great list!
    My Top Ten

  16. LOVE your new template and look! I also need to read Sloppy Firsts-I have it in an ebook but never got around to reading it! Burn for Burn is a book that I really didn't care for but I didn't know it was a series. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
