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. legend

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.

I can appreciate what Alissa Nutting has done with Tampa; women do commit these crimes to and awareness needs to be raised.

3 – The Cuckoo’s Calling I read J.K Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy and I absolutely hated it. It was so dull and boring. There was none of the spark that is present in the Harry Potter series. I know this may seem like an unfair comparison as they are completely different genres but still, The Casual Vacancy was boring and I don’t want to read any of the Cormoran Strikes novels in case I experience the same disappointment.
