Top Ten Books I Recommend the Most

This week’s Top 10 from The Broke and The Bookish is Top Ten Books I Recommend the Most.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – Pretty safe bet because it’s almost universally enjoyed and not too daunting.

The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay – One of my favorite books ever.

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell – Love this book.  It’s the perfect mix of fun with depth.

We Need to Talk about Kevin by Lionel Shriver – More people need to read it so they can talk to me about it.

I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell by Tucker Max – Not one of my favorites, BUT even though the author is an A**, it’s funny and told in short stories.  I recommend it to people who say they don’t like to read.

Exile by Richard North Patterson – Fiction but super educational about the history behind the conflict in the Mid East

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green – Love, Love, Love

East of Eden by John Steinbeck – My favorite “Classic”

Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand – My go-to nonfiction recommendation

Prey Series by John Sandford – I recommend these for people looking for a thriller series with plenty of material.

Myron Bolitar Series by Harlan Coben – Ditto (not as many books though)

For those of you counting....yes I picked eleven.  I struggle with boundaries and I gave myself an extra for my birthday :)


  1. We share THG. I read all Green's books but TFiOS wasn't my favorite. Nice list. :)

    Happy reading!

  2. Totally agreed on The Hunger Games. And any & all John Green books get recommended!
