Books I Must Read, or So Everyone Tells Me

Mom-Top Ten

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. They’d love to share their lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

It’s that time of the week again…this week’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday is “Top Ten Books People Have Been Telling You That You MUST Read (whether because they think it’s a “you” book or it’s just been generally recommended so often).” For me this week’s post will be very similar to last week’s. These are in no particular order, but the following books are books that I’ve heard over and over again from friends and family “You have to read this book!”


A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin


Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor


The Selection by Kiera Cass


The Maze Runner by James Dashner


The Giver by Lois Lowry


Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

What books are people telling you that you have to read? Are any of mine a must read?

  1. I didn’t looove the first two books in the Lunar Chronicles but CRESS is EXCELLENT. I’m a big fan of the Selection series. I didn’t love DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE but the writing was super good. THE BOOK THIEF and Percy Jackson made my list as well! Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi Lillian, I will probably be burnt at the stake for saying this but I am not a big fan of Outlander. I read the first 2 but quickly lost interest in the series, I found it to be way too long and overdrawn. Haven’t read the Lunar Chronicles yet so can’t comment but Game of Thrones is a MUST READ 🙂

    • Michelle, I’ve heard that about Outlander which is why I’ve been so hesitant to start it! Game of Thrones I’ll eventually get too because I know I would like it, I guess the hype surrounding it and its length scared me off 😉

  3. Just bought Game of Thrones for my college-age son, and…he’s actually reading it. So huge props to George R. Martin! And the same day, I bought The Book Thief for myself because my college-aged daughter said the movie was soooo good. Nice list of must-reads!
