Top Ten Tuesday (3) – Books for Non-Readers
Top Ten Books I Would Give to Someone Who Doesn’t Read Books
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week we were asked to list books that we would give to someone who does not read books. These are my picks:
YA / ADULTS
1. Ender’s Game – By Orson Scott Card – This is my #1 pick on my World Book Night application. Here’s hoping I get it!
2. The Fault in Our Stars – By John Green – Read my review here.
3. The Belgaraid and Malloreon Series – By David Eddings – The perfect fantasy books for people who don’t read fantasy!
4. The Princess Bride – William Goldman – Because who doesn’t like a story about “Twuuue loooove!” ??
5. Tiger’s Curse – By Colleen Houck – I’m biased. I love this series and recommend it to everyone.
MIDDLE GRADE (Also good for all ages)
6. Howl’s Moving Castle – By Diana Wynne Jones – In which I say ALL MUST READ this one.
7. Inkheart – By Cornelia Funke – I love the Inkheart series, and so should you! It’s an imaginative story within a story and the characters are outstanding.
8. Maniac Magee – By Jerry Spinelli – One of the best books that I remember reading as a child about the power of racism in a small town.
9. Harry Potter – by J.K. Rowling – Duh.
10. Bridge to Terabithia – By Katherine Paterson – A fantastic book about being a child and the pains of growing up.
