Top Ten Tuesday (18): Top Ten Books I Recommend The Most
Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. For more information and a list of past and future topics, go here.

1.     Jane Eyre by: Charlotte Brontë – This is my favorite historical read ever, even before Jane Austen. I love Jane, Mr. Rochester, and the adorable romance.
2.     The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices series by: Cassandra Clare – Cassie Clare is my absolute favorite author ever. Her books are masterpieces in themselves, and they have a very special place in my heart.
3.     Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series by: Richelle Mead – I fell so quickly with this series, and I always recommend this series when anyone asks for a great paranormal series.
4.     To Kill a Mockingbird by: Harper Lee – I first read this book in 6th grade and again in 9th grade, and I equally loved it both times. It deals with very important issues from historical times, and I feel everyone should read this book at least once.
5.     Anything by Jennifer L. Armentrout – Goodness gracious this author is amazing. People can ask me for books in different genres, and I can recommend something by JLA every single time. She is that versatile.
6.     Shatter Me series by: Tahereh Mafi -  Mafi’s writing is completely one of best I have ever come across. It’s lyrical and beautiful, and I don’t hesitate to recommend this series.
7.     Harry Potter series by: J.K. Rowling – Everyone just needs to read this series, hands down. It deals with a great friendship, and it has everything a great book has.
8.     Anna and the French Kiss by: Stephanie Perkins – When anyone asks for an wonderful contemporary, I always push them in the direction of Anna.
9.     Stargirl by: Jerry Spinelli - This is another book I read in my middle school days, and I still think of it often. It’s a great tale about a girl who is very different and a boy who loves her. I’d always recommend this book, especially to younger people.
10. Mara Dyer series by: Michelle Hodkin – This series is beyond creeptastic, but brilliant at the same time. If anyone wants a recommendation for a chilling book sprinkled with a consuming romance, I point them in this way.

  4. Of all the lists I've looked at this morning, yours is the closest to mine - we share so many! I also have the Lux series, the Covenant series, The Infernal Devices series and the VA series on my list! Shatter Me came *this close* to making it on my list - it's amazing!!

    Here's my TTT: Top Ten Tuesday at Krista's Dust Jacket

  5. Oh my gosh! That cover to Jane Eyre is AMAZING! I must find it and buy it! I also recommend Stephanie Perkins' and Cassandra Clare's books a lot to my students. :)

  6. I totally agree with Harry Potter, of coruse :D I can't wait to read the VA books soon.

    TT- Mel@thedailyprophecy.

  7. I found Mafi to be repetative and downright insane. Not for me, but I can see why so many people love it.

    Harry Potter's one of my all time favorites, though I don't really recommend it all that much because my friends have pretty much all read it. :)

  8. Everyone's TTT posts are making me feel so lame for not having read any Stephanie Perkins. I guess I need to get on that. Great list!

  9. First off, I love your blog. New GFC follower!

    The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer definitely made my list as well, and Harry Potter is always a great choice to recommend. To Kill a Mocking Bird and Jane Eyre are my favorite classics.

    You have an amazing list!

    Scorpio Races is an awesome book along with Before I Fall. I almost put The Disreputable History on my list. I totally should have. That book was so much fun!

    Now following you on Twitter!

  10. JLA ia great! I just got my cousin addicted. I feel very proud because I'd been telling her for awhile that she would love the books. :)

    HP, and TMI and TID are wonderful, too. I really like Jane Eyre, but Jane Austen is my favorite. I just like the style of her writing and the humor she added. Funny books are always my favorite.

  11. ANNNNAA. It's legitimately my favorite contemporary and I'm so happy it made it onto your list. (:
