Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish blog
Okay, instead of doing Top Ten Books I've Been Forced to Read this week, I've decided to do Top Ten Books I Feel Like People Are Trying to Force Me to Read! Because I don't actually get forced to read books. Some of you may stop speaking to me after you read this list and see some of the books I have not read that people have recommended to me. Especially since some of you are the ones who threatened me about them, I mean recommended them to me in the first place. *looks around nervously* but I think you might all be okay with it. We will see. :) Some of these are ones that I do want to read. Some of these are not.
Top Ten Books I Feel like People Are Trying to Force Me to Read
Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling (Do I even need to put the authors name for this one!?)
*ducks flying objects* I have to start with the one that gets the biggest reaction. I have not read Harry Potter. I'm not quite sure why, but I have not read it. And the more time goes on, the harder it gets for me to read it. And the more people recommend it to me.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (Same as above, do I really need to put the authors name?)
Yes, I have not read this either! I've seen one of the movies, which I know, so does not count. At all. I get a horrified look when I say I've never read it. And them I'm immediately told too!
Divergent by Veronica Roth
I tried reading this book, I really did! It was just not something that I loved. I still can not tell the youth librarian at my library that. :( She was the one who kept recommending it in the first place. It's her favorite book.
The Queen's Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner
I just talked to someone on twitter about this series the other day. I want to read it, I just have not had time yet! So many people have recommended it to me!
Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan
I love MG fantasy and yet I have not read this series. Many people have told me I should. And have I? No. Not yet, at least.
Code Name Verity by by Elizabeth Wein
I DON'T LIKE BOOKS THAT MAKE ME CRY ALL RIGHT!? And from what people have told me, if I read this book I will cry. A lot. People keep telling me I should read it anyway.
Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery
This is one that people recommended to me that I actually started! And then I lost the copy I was reading when we moved...and have been to lazy to get another one...
Maximum Ride series by James Patterson
I did try this book! And I didn't really like it...Which seems to upset a lot of people who say I need to try it again.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
No, I have not read this one either. I refer you to my thoughts about crying above.
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
A major classic that I still have not read. And that people will continue to recommend to me until I do.
*peers out from behind stack of books* Do any of you still like me after that list? Will you still tweet to me? :)
Now that you have seen the books I get recommended the most and *coughs* threatened about! Have any of you been recommended these? Or are you the ones recommending them? Are you going to recommend them to me now? :) Let me know in the comments!
And by the way, I think this was the easiest TTT to write ever!
