Top Ten Books I Recommend the Most
|March 26, 2013|
- The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling: Seriously, who hasn't read this? But if you haven't, do it RIGHT NOW. You will not regret it.
- Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld: This series was a very consistent, excellent series! The character development and world-building was maybe the best I've ever seen in the dystopia genre. Overall, tons of twists and turns and awesome adventure! I can't stop myself from recommending this to everyone.
- The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins: Again, almost everyone has read this. If you haven't, where have you been???? The craze has mostly died down, but I bet it'll be back when Catching Fire comes out as a movie! Anyways, the first two books were amazing and I definitely recommend it for those of you who haven't read it.
- Divergent by Veronica Roth: I've really been seeing this book growing in popularity and encourage you all to read it! The character development is a bit lacking and there are some holes in the world-building, but overall an action-packed dystopia adventure that will keep hooked the whole way through.
- The Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan: Of all his series, this one is definitely my favourite. Even though I'm not in middle-grade, I really enjoy these books! The plot never fails to surprise me and I really like the Greek mythology. Definitely recommended reads.
- Blood Red Road by Moira Young: Though I don't really recommend the sequel, this debut was absolutely amazing. I am so glad I happened to see this on the shelves at my library and picked it up because now I can't stop raving about it! I recommended it to several friends who have all enjoyed just as much as I have. Seriously-- You will not book this amazing dystopia adventure down.
- Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder: This book was so amazing! I don't think many people know of this author, but I really enjoy her books. Magic Study wasn't as good as this one, and I haven't read the rest of the series, but I very highly recommend this book to anyone (except younger people because some parts are a bit mature). Whenever someone asks me what they should read, I show them this book.
- Legend by Marie Lu: I almost put this on the "more popular" shelf, but in truth, it's kind of in between. Anyway, I think more people should read it than they are currently, so I put it in this section. This is another phenomenal dystopia (I knowww) with great characters and a twisty plot. Yay!
- Ingo series by Helen Dunmore: I read this series quite a while ago, but re-read the first one last summer, and I really loved them in middle grade! They are full of suspense and adventure and I often recommend it, especially to younger readers.
- Variant by Robison E. Wells: My friend recommended this to me and since then I read it and at the sequel (not as good), but really loved the first one. Anyone who wants a mysterious sci-fi should look no further.
