Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by the The Broke and the Bookish.
This week's topic: Happy I listened to a friend's or Amazon's recommendation of these books.
1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I saw this book many times while looking for books but for some reason I just never picked it up. Until one day after hearing great things about it I decided to pick it up and WOW!
2. City of Bones by Cassandra ClareAmazon suggested this book and I was a little skeptical about Amazon knowing what I would like. Let's just say that after reading this series I pay more attention to what Amazon has to say. It's not always right but I don't want to miss a great book by ignoring it.
3. Unearthly by Cynthia HandI try to stop myself from picking out books because of their beautiful covers. So, I was glad when I read a fellow reader's blog where she loved this books and highly recommended it. Not only does it have a great cover but a great story.
4. Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R Ward
This was the first Romance novel I read it because it was recommended by a dear friend. I remember her telling me that if I was able to get past my blushing and trying to cover my eyes that I would enjoy it. She was right, I love this series.
5. The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey NiffeneggerThe name of this book was what kept me from reading it until it was recommended. I am not an usual reader of time travel stories and that's why I was hesitant on reading this book. Yet, this book is so much more than Henry's ability to time travel.
6. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
I am still to see the movie and I am scared to see Robert Pattinson as Jacob. Has anyone watched this movie? Does it stay true to the book?
7. Juliet by Anne Fortier
This book was recommended by a GoodReads friend. I have always loved Romeo and Juliet and this book has become one of my favorites.
8. Hush, Hush by Becca FitzpatrickMy sister recommended this book because at the time I couldn't get enough books about fallen angels. I was instantly captured by the beautiful cover and fell in love with Patch. Can't wait to read Silence.
9. Rebecca by Daphne du MaurierAfter reading A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick, I wanted to read another Gothic novel and a friend told me about Rebecca.
10. Twilight by Stephanie Meyer
Lame, I know but I am glad I picked up this series after seeing everyone and their grandmothers carrying this book around. Before reading this book I was reading pure Adult-fiction and Non-fiction books. It wasn't until I read this series that I discovered the wonderful world of Young Adult fiction.
