Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Recommend Most


Top Ten Tuesday is, as always, brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish.

I get asked for recommendations all the time. Whether I'm posting here or not, people know they can come to me, and I'll probably recommend something they'll love. 

But sometimes this can drive me a little crazy. 
People will ask:

 "What should I read next?" 

I respond: 

"What was the last thing you read? Did you enjoy it? What kinds of things do you usually like?" 

Their response:
"oh...historical fiction, non-fiction, romantical paranormal young adult, action, fantasy-mystery, modern, science-fictiony books." 

..................................... 


Look, I'm not asking you to completely type yourself. It can take years to type yourself. I'm still typing myself. But if you're going to ask what you should read next and expect an answer, have an idea of what you're looking for! 

So here are my go-to oh-you-want-an-answer-right-now-but-I-barely-know-you answers: 

Historical fiction: The Gods of Gotham by Lyndsay Faye 

Young Adult/Fantasy: The Princetta by Anne-Laure Bondoux, the Inkeart Trilogy by Cornelia Funke, The Redwall Series, but starting with Martin the Warrior by Brian Jacques, and The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly 

Non-fiction: Stiff, by Mary Roach, The Age of Wonder, by Richard Holmes

Romantical Paranormal: Glow by Jessica Maria Tuccelli 

Modern: A Novel Bookstore, by Laurence Cossé and On The Road by Jack Kerouac 

If you've already read all of these or do not see something that interests you, let me know. I'd love to pick your brain and and fine-tune a recommendation for you.
