Top Ten Tuesday: Books people tell me I must read

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Hey look some of these overlap with the books that I'm not sure I want to read... Surprise surprise!

1. Me, Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews - Every Booktuber ever has read and loved this book and that's essentially the same as throwing it in my face and telling me to sit and read now.

2. The Maze Runner by James Dashner - My brother and my little sister have both read all or part of this series and they've warned me that I must read this series before the movie comes out!  So that's probably going to happen.

3. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott - My Aunt and the literature student in me have decided that I will love this book.  Partially because it's a classic but mostly because it was adapted as a musical and I really want to see the musical...


4. Watership Down by Richard Adams - My 7th grade English teacher gave me her copy of this book and said read it, one day you will thank me.  I guess I better do that so I can thank her.

5. A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray - I was watching a book haul video recently and this book showed up on it.  The Booktuber basically said if it doesn't sound interesting to you then there is something wrong.  And yes it was interesting and yes I took that as a person invitation to read this book.

6. A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin - One of my brother's friends told me as an aspiring author I should read this series because, if for no other reason, Martin knows how to kill off characters and do it well.

7. Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier - I have a friend who likes to recommend books to me but occasionally she'll gush and tell me that I absolutely have to read whichever book she's talking about or I'll have lived an unfulfilled life.  This is one of those books.

8. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes - This again was recommended by my zealous friend. (I love her!) She told me that this book will make me cry a thousand tears, which I'm not sure if it's from joy or sorrow so I'll have to find out.

9. The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss - I have a whole stack of books recommended to me buy the lovely people at DAW books from when I interned there, but this was the first series that they told me to read.  I read The Name of the Wind when they first gave it to me and it's about time I continue.

10. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell - My little sister is all over me to read this one.  She's told me it's a must!


  1. Yes, 'Me Before You' is a MUST, it's so amazing, I just have to think about it to shed a tear sometimes lol

  2. Watership Down is on my list, too! Would definitely recommend A Game of Thrones and The Wise Man's Fear. :-)

  3. A Game of Thrones is amazing and there are a million reasons you should read it. I absolutely love Little Women, definitely bump that up your list to next!

    Eleanor and Park is on my list too!
