Top Ten Tuesdays is a meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish that features a new topic each week where we have to put down our top ten of it.
BOOKS I'D GIVE TO READERS WHO HAVEN'T READ....
Okay....So this was just way too complicated for me to choose just one genre, so I decided to choose several and choose my favorite ones that I would give to a first time reader of that certain genre.
YA Paranormal Fantasy
Penryn and The End of Days series by Susan Ee
Angelfall and World After were both AMAZING reads. Dark and Twisted, super gory and swoonable at the same time. Can not wait for, the most anticipated, third book in the series (which does not have a title or a even a cover yet). Expected Release date for the 3rd installment is May 14th, 2015.
If you have read any of these.......WHAT!?!?! Get on it!!
Author Gillian Flynn
I've read all three of her books, Sharp Objects, Gone Girl, and Dark Places, which I've listed in the order of most liked (Sharp Objects being THE BEST). All of her books are twisted, TWISTED. I couldn't believe how this woman thinks, what crazy images she conjures up. Definitely shocked the spooks out of me.
Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern~ Magical, Romantic and Unique. One of a kind read and a favorite of mine.
The Golem and The Jinni by Helene Wecker~ I remember waiting for this book's debut and when the day finally came I was at the bookstore purchasing it 2 mins after the doors opened. It was an unforgettable journey with captivating characters and a magical look at a historical New York.
The Museum of Extraordinary Things by Alice Hoffman~ A compelling story of young love during tumultuous times. Hoffman created a mysterious story during the buoyant and fickle first decades of the twentieth century New York.
Half A King (Shattered Seas #1) by Joe Abercrombie~ Definitely a great fantasy book for first time fantasy readers. It's not too massive, like most fantasy books, 352 pages, a decent amount. But trust me all 352 pages will fly by so fast. The story begins intense and doesn't stop. A misfit cast of characters and unbelievable plot twists.
This is, by far, my favorite book read this year!
The Way of Kings (Stormlight Archives #1) by Brandon Sanderson~ Read this in a group read-a-long created by Snowflakes and Spider Silk. It was pretty huge but so sensational and worth every page. I can not wait to get into the next installment (soon), Words of Radiance.
Fairy Tale Retellings
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer~ This series puts a sci-fi/fantasy flip on our classic fairy-tales. Re-tellings from Cinderella, Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel , Meyers creates such an inventive and incredible story.
Star Wars/Indiana Jones/Cinderella and other fairy-tales= AMAZEBALLS
Because Neil Gaiman is one of my most favorite authors I would, of course, want everyone to read his books. I listed the books that are a must read for Gaiman's first time readers. Neverwhere, The Graveyard Book and The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains.
Thank you for stopping by and for those of you haven't read any of the books or authors I've listed above, hopefully you'll take some time and read some of them. I promise, they will not let you down!!!
