Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is my all time favorite weekly meme hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish. 
Top Ten "Older" Books That I Don't Want You to Forget About!
1.)  Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles - One of the best teen romances I have ever read.
2.)  Jessica Darling series by Megan McCafferty - 2 words.  Marcus.  Flutie. 
3.)  The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan - Wonderful middle grade fiction that seems to get lost amidst Harry Potter.
4.)  Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma - This one isn't technically "older" as it was pubbed in 2011, but I think every single person should read this.  Everyone.
5.)  Dreamland by Sarah Dessen - A good "starter" novel about the dangers of domestic abuse.
6.)  My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult - If you are not a big ball of emotional mess by the end of this, there is something SERIOUSLY wrong with you.
7.)  The Spellman Files by Lisa Lutz - One of my fav books of all time.  Seriously funny shit.  It's great.  Trust me.
9.)  Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See - Very touching novel about friendship in China.
10.)  The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck - The oldest book on my list.  It was pubbed in 1932.  This is also one of only two assigned reading books that I enjoyed. 


  1. I haven't read any of those books you mentioned, but Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is one I've wanted to read for a while.

    1. It's a very good book with fantastic imagery. Completely out of my comfort zone, but a wonderful novel. I hear there is also a movie out based on the book, but I have yet to watch it.
