Top Ten Books I Recommend The Most

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday has another topic and different bloggers give their top ten. I love making lists, so here's mine for this week!

This week's topic is 

Top Ten Books I Recommend The Most

It's never really easy making these Top Ten's, but this one is so hard! There are so many awesome books out there I loved and would recommend. But I tried my hardest and narrowed it down to ten. They're not really in a particular order. I think they're all amazing!

 1  Pushing the Limits / Dare You To by Katie McGarry
Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits, #1)Dare You To (Pushing the Limits, #2)
I'm counting these as one. You don't want to miss out on both of them!

 2  Legend by Marie Lu
Legend (Legend, #1)
I just finished this one yesterday and let me tell it's as amazing as everyone says it is!

 3  The Elemental series by Brigid Kemmerer
Storm (Elemental, #1)
Yes, I know, I cheating a bit again. I could just pick the first book in the series, but you'll want to read the other books in the series then anyway. It's that amazing!

 4  The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
The Time Traveler's Wife
This book left a huge impression on me and I cried so hard while I read it. A beautiful story that really makes you think.

 5  Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)
Tahereh Mafi's writing style is so amazing you should read this book just for that.

 6  Can You Keep A Secret by Sophie Kinsella
Can You Keep a Secret?
This book has made me laugh so hard! It was almost embarrassing.

 7  Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan
Glow (Sky Chasers, #1)
I never thought I would say that I love a science fiction book, but this one is absolutely amazing.

 8  The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks
The Last Song
All his books have made me cry, but this was one of the best.

 9  Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
Under the Never Sky (Under the Never Sky, #1)
One of the best dystopian books out there. 

10 Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)
As long as there are people out there that haven't read this series yet I'll keep recommending it!

What books do you recommend the most?


  1. Okay, I've read three of these, and I have Pushing the Limits just waiting to be read, so I'm feeling pretty good about your list! I've wanted to read Legend for a long time now, but I just haven't gotten the change. My sister is a big fan of the Elementals series, so maybe one of these days she'll convince me to read those books as well. :) Thanks for visiting my blog!

  2. The only ones I've read are Harry Potter and Under The Never Sky. I have some of the other ones just waiting to be read. I hope to read Shatter Me soon. Great list!

  3. Can You Keep a Secret? is hands down my favourite Sophie Kinsella novel. I was laughing real hard at some parts too! xD

  4. I cannot wait to start Legend and Shatter me! Great list, many of the books are on my TBR pile. :)

    Happy reading!

  5. LOVE HP and UNDER THE NEVER SKY -- I'm glad to see them on so many lists! I haven't read most of the others you recommend, but a lot of them are on my (miles-long) TBR list. One of these days I'm really, really going to get to them ...

  6. Can You Keep a Secret is such a fun book! I LOVE Sophie Kinsella's novels..although I think my favorite is The Undomestic Goddess :)

  7. The Time Travelers Wife is such an amazing book! The story was beautiful and I cried a lot when I was reading it too! I love HP, UTNS & Legend too! I need to read every other book on your list though, because they all sound amazing!!
    Great list :)

  8. Ohh I wish I'd included Legend! Such a great book. I really enjoyed Prodigy too. Pushing the Limits did make mine and I can't wait to read Dare You To! Love your list - great mix of everything :D

  9. I can't believe I forgot to put Pushing the Limits on my list! That was one of my favorite reads of 2012 and I can't wait to read Dare You To. I also recently read Legend and loved it as well. And of course I think Can You Keep a Secret is awesome :)

    Great list!

  10. A big BIG YES to Harry Potter from me as well :D Most of the others you have on here are already on my reading list...I actually own a copy of Storm, Under the Never Sky AND Shatter Me. Hoping I can get to them SOON! Legend is also one I've wanted to read for far too long hehe!
