Top Tens: Books I want to read that Everyone who matters has read, but me...

Yep Altering top ten tuesday again. URL for the original: The Broke and The Bookish


1. Something by Neil Gaiman
I am intrigued to read something by this guy but I don't know where to start. Everyone keeps saying that I should start with 'Stardust', but I think that seems like such a typical thing to do. Smoke and Mirrors looks pretty interesting...

2. 'Practical Magic' by Alice Hoffman
Alice Hoffman is such a great author and I've heard great things about this one especially, However I just can't sem to find one with a pretty cover. I really want to own one with a pretty cover.

3.'The Peach Keeper' by Sarah Addison Allen and 'The Sugar Queen' by Sarah Addison Allen
It's pretty sad how much I rave about her when I've only read half of the books she has written.

4. 'Speak' by Laurie Halse Anderson
I've seen the movie and I own the book, but I just haven't got around to reading it yet. I am all for banned books.

5. 'Love in the time of Cholera' by Gabriel Marquiez
Everyone seems to have read this on Shelfari. There must be something good about it.

6. 'To Kill a Mockingbird' by Harper Lee
Same as number 5 + I also see lots of favourite symbols and 5 star ratings in relation to this book.

7. 'Graceling'
The writing is supposed to be beautiful.

BOOKS I'M NOT 100% SURE IF I  WANT TO READ, BUT EVERYONE SAYS THEY'RE GREAT:
8. 'The Glass Castle' Jeanette Walls
I'm not sure how I feel about Memoirs in General.

9. 'The Thirteenth Tale'
It's Supposed to be great. Again, I'm hesitant that it might be real screwy.

10.Anything By Agatha Christie
I don't think murder is my thing. I'm kinda curious though.

Hope You all Enjoy My List,
Natalie

Just this person's opinion, but I say yes to Speak and Mockingbird and Glass Castle. All books that I have never forgotten.

I loved Graceling and first came to as an audio book, which was so fantastic I had to buy a copy of the book as well. I highly recommend it either way.

The Thirteenth Tale and Glass Castle are both quite good. Give them a try - I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Speak is an excellent book. The Glass Castle is quite a memoir, but I'm not sure how you'd feel about it if you're not a memoir person. You've reminded me of Practical Magic - I would love to read this as well!

I found Graceling surprisingly good. :)

I haven't read Speak either. I didn't even know it had been made into a movie! I'll have to get to it at some point.

I'm with you on a lot of these. I haven't read Glass Castle or Thirteenth Tale, but hear nothing but good about them. Hunger Games is fun.

Come check out my list at The Scarlet Letter.
