Top Ten Tuesday - Books I was "forced" to Read

Sorry I'm a bit late posting today.  Crazytown here... and fair warning it probably won't get any better until 2014, but I'm going to try to keep at it. 

Every Tuesday the ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish host a book related Top 10 theme. 

Anyway, Books I was forced to read.  You can’t really force me to read something.  Especially since finishing school.  So these are mostly things I wouldn’t have read without someone else’s urging.

The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay  (School) - Pretty well established as my favorite book ever (technically tied).

Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen (Bookclub) -

We Need to Talk about Kevin by Lionel Shriver (All theBooks I can read) - It's a year later and I still think about this book ALL.  THE.  TIME.

Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling (My cousin Mallory, and pretty much everyone else alive) - I held out on reading any of these until all the books were released.  My cousin sent me home from Houston with me.

The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver (My mom,  my aunt Brenda, bookclub) – This one took 3 tries but I’m really glad I persevered.  Then I "forced" my brother to read it and he LOVED it.

The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh (Bookclub)

East of Eden by John Steinbeck (Friend) - I need to reread this one.

Cane River by Lalita Tademy (Bookclub)

The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson (Friend) - Fascinated story of the World's Fair and a serial killer.
