Top Ten Tuesday - 109

Top Ten Tuesday was started by Breaking the Spine for bloggers who like to make lists about books.

Top Ten Books I'd Recommend to Reluctant Readers

1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
This is one of those books that anyone can enjoy - my dad and brother even like this series! A lot of people that don't read frequently have picked up The Hunger Games which shows how universal these books are!

2. My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult
Jodi Picoult is a fantastic writer and her books really draw you in, which is good for those that don't like to read.

3. Mostly Good Girls by Leila Sales
This book is so funny, you don't even realize you're reading.

4. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Even though it was written in the 1920s, the language is pretty easy to understand and the themes are timeless. This is my sister's favorite book and she doesn't like to read.

5. Divergent by Veronica Roth
Divergent is very exciting and fast-paced. And since it's about to be made into a movie, there's extra incentive to get a reluctant reader to pick it up.

6. Down a Dark Hall by Lois Duncan
For those that like something scary, Lois Duncan's novels are perfect. They're super short too.

7. Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin
If you haven't seen the movie yet (or even if you have) this book is a great recommendation. It's a fun read and everyone loves the drama that comes with secret affairs.

8. Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson
This a cute romantic contemporary novel. Plus it's set in New York City - can't get much better than that.

9. Sea Change by Aimee Friedman
For those looking for an interesting beach read.

10. The Luxe by Anna Godbersen
For those that want some light historical fiction. This series is like Gossip Girl set in the turn of the century.
