This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is about required reading books, book club picks, books for your job or those books that it simply feels like other readers were going to tie you down until you read it.
I’m choosing to go with books that I “had” to read because of glowing reviews.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I saw this on so many sites and blogs and finally felt like I didn’t have a choice but to read it. And I loved it.
Divergent by Vernoica Roth. This one was actually recommended by a co-worker and I devoured it.
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. It seemed like everyone in the world had read, loved, and cried over this book. I finally joined them.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. Another one where it seems like every blogger I read raved about it.
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo.
Angelfall by Susan Ee. This one was actually recommended by my sister.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer. This is another one that was recommended by the co-worker who recommended Divergent.
That’s all I can think of at the moment. What books are you glad you were “forced” to read?
