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)
From friends, family and the bookstagram community I get hundreds of book recommendations and I absolutely love it. Reading a book that has been recommended to you is so exciting as once I have finished I know that there is someone that I can go and talk to about it. I love discussing books so this is perfect for me. Here is a list of ten books that I have been recommended over and again but for one reason or another have yet to read.
The Legend trilogy by Marie Lu – these books have been recommended to me so many times and I am still yet to read them (sorry!) I haven’t even bought them. They do sound like something that I would enjoy though.
Bloodlines by Richelle Mead –I am yet to read all of the Vampire Academy books and I really want to finish them first but I will get on to these afterwards. Promise.
The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes – this has been recommended to me numerous times, it’s no secret that I love a good romance novel but…books set during WWI don’t normally work for me so I am uncertain as to whether or not I will read it.
P.S I Love You by Cecelia Ahern –Friends tell me that I should read this but it always comes with a warning “It’s so different from the film” and this scares me. I absolutely adore the film, it’s one of my favourites ever. I have had a copy sat on my shelf for around three years now and I have yet to even open it.
Bridget Jones Mad About the Boy by Helen Fielding – I have read the first two Bridget Jones books and I really enjoyed them. Naturally people tell me to read the third one but I’m apprehensive – Mr Darcy is dead? Why did someone have to tell me that? Ruined it for me now.
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn –I have had it on my Kindle for around a year now but I just can’t bring myself to read it. What if it doesn’t live up to my expectations? Curse all those rave reviews!
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han – everyone and their mum is recommending this to me (not literally but you get the point) and it sounds so good. I really need to get my hands on a copy.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins – with the release of Isla and the Happily Ever After they hype around this series has grown exponentially and I finally downloaded Anna onto my Kindle. Within the next few weeks I will read this. I will. I will.
Would you read any of these? Would you recommend them? Are there any that you would like to read? Are there any that you would avoid?
