Top 10 Books I Recommend The Most

I know I say this a lot, but I really like this topic.  Picking 10 books to recommend can be a little tricky, but it’s also fun.  I mostly went with books that I talk about a lot, but I also wanted a few I think are great reads.

  1. Love, Aubrey by Suzanne LaFleur.  This one is on my mind because I recently finished it but the relationship between Aubrey and her grandmother shows how special that relationship is.  
  2. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling.  I know this might be hard to believe, but I almost didn’t put Harry on this list.  I know it’s a book a lot of people have read already, but it’s also one of the very few books that can always make me feel better no matter what is going on.
  3. The Wives Of Henry VIII by Antonia Fraser.  While the Alison Weir biography of Henry’s wives is my favorite, the one by Antonia Fraser is the one I would recommend.  Fraser’s biography is the one that’s most neutral, and it’s the best overview of the three I’ve read.
  4. The Fault In Our Stars by John Green.  It’s funny and happy and sad and every single time I’ve read it, I cry harder than I did the first time.  It’s a must read, and a book I refuse to read in public because I don’t want people to think I’m weird when I start sobbing.
  5. The Iron Fey Series by Julie Kagawa.  I love the NeverNever and I especially love how fairies have evolved and changed.  If you’re looking for a faerie story full of adventure, this is the book for you!
  6. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.  Part of me wants to listen to the audiobook, because this was a magical book that drew me in.  And it really warrants 2 reads, MINIMUM, because of how awesome it is.
  7. Reason To Breathe by Rebecca Donovan.  I knew I stumbled across something special when I stared at the book for a few seconds while wondering what the  hell happened…and immediately bought the sequel.  It’s unforgettable and months later, just thinking about this book brings tears to my eyes.
  8. The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson.  I cannot gush about this book enough.  It’s beautiful and heartbreaking and funny and real.  And I couldn’t help but love it.
  9. Beauty Queens by Libba Bray.  Because I couldn’t stop laughing the entire time I was listening to Beauty Queens.  It’s such a fun read!
  10. Paranormalcy by Kiersten White.  Because Evie is awesome and because this trilogy is so much fun to read!  There’s a lot of great one liners in Paranormalcy.

  1. I’m halfway through The Night Circus and throroughly enjoying it! I wish I’d read it sooner. 🙂 I also really want to read Paranormalcy, I keep hearing great things about it.

  2. I one hundred percent agree about tfios. I’m currently reading Looking for Alaska by him. and it’s the same way. I stopped at a certain point and have to wait to read it because I know I’m going to cry like a little girl. I also agree about the iron fey. they were fantastic. and I’m really happy I saw paranormalcy on here. they were amazing too.
