Top Ten Books I’d Recommend To My Sister


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they come up with a list for us bloggers to complete. I’m really excited about this week’s list, which is the top ten books we’d recommend to a certain person. I decided to recommend books to my sister.

My sister is one of my favourite people in the world. We’re incredibly similar. I thank her for my love of books. I can’t remember how many times she used to read to me when I was younger. Even now, our favourite thing to do together is to read. She’s got me to read certain books and vice versa. I know her TBR list is HUGE but here are ten books that she should BUMP up her TBR list.

(By the way, you can visit my sister’s book blog here: BIBLIOBETH)

16036975UndoneCat Clarke– I’ve made Beth read Entangled and Torn by Cat Clarke before. Undone was my favourite out of her books so far, so I want her to read this as soon as possible!


Dangerous GirlsAbigail Haas– I still can’t work out whether this book had a genius ending or just plain annoying, so I really need to discuss it with Beth!

17232261Songs of Willow FrostJamie Ford–Β  I always recommend Jamie Ford’s books where I can and this book certainly needs to be read soon!

cover37723-mediumStay Where You Are And Then LeaveJohn Boyne– I like to recommend John Boyne where I can as well, and this book is a brilliant read.

1656001The HostStephenie Meyer– I actually preferred The Host to the Twilight saga. I think Beth would enjoy it!

9741685Shadows On The MoonZoe Marriott– I think Beth would really enjoy this book. It’s beautifully written.

15812794The Time Between- Karen White– I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I think Beth would like Karen White’s writing style.


Heart-Shaped BruiseTanya Byrne- Another one I need to discuss with Beth. A protagonist that does awful things, but you can’t help but like…

11722503My Sister Lives On The MantelpieceAnnabel Pitcher– I know Beth has this book, as I read it before she did. I can’t help but love this book though, so she should definitely bump it up her list.

16275049Cruel SummerJames Dawson–Β I loved this book. I was a fan of Point Horror when I was younger, and so was Beth. In fact, I think it was her that got me into them. James Dawson’s Cruel Summer reminds me of a Point Horror classic, so I think she’d love it!

Have you read any of my choices for Beth? Are you intrigued by any of them? Please feel free to link me to your Top Ten lists. I have a feeling I’ll be adding many books to my TBR pile this week…

  1. Love the idea. I’m too lazy to write my own blog but here are the 10 books I’d recommend to my sister: ‘Maggot Moon’ by Sally Gardner, ‘She is Not Invisible’ by Marcus Sedgwick, ‘An Abundance of Katherines’ and ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ by John Green, ‘Picture Me Gone’ and ‘Just In Case’ by Meg Rossof, ‘More Than This’ by Patrick Ness, ‘The London Eye Mystery’ by Siobhan Dowd, ‘Noughts and Crosses’ by Malorie Blackman and ‘Shades of Grey’ by Jasper Fforde.

    • I know!! I average about a book a day depending on the size of the book. If it’s over 400 pages then it takes me a few days! I do have a lot of free time at the moment, but this could be changing next year, so we’ll see if my reading slows!

  2. Great list. I had a dislike adventure with Dangerous Girls. I think more of it had to do with the fact that there was made up stuff about my hometown and it read like a Lifetime movie to me. I’m still unsure about that ending.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I know what you mean – these Top Ten posts always add several books to my TBR mountain. Several of these will be going there as well, since I haven’t read any of the ones on your list. They look really good!

  4. The Host is the only book on this list that I’ve read. It wasn’t my favorite, but it was enjoyable. Dangerous Girls and Songs of Willow Frost both caught my eye though.

    Thanks for dropping by my TTT.

  5. I completely agree about The Host. I actually re read it a while back. The first time I’ve ever re read a book and i loved it even more the second time around. I think because I knew what was going on, the beginning wasn’t nearly as confusing. Such an awesome book.

  6. Great list! That’s awesome that your sister is such a reader and you guys can talk about books and bump up each other’s TBR piles. My brother reads too and we recommend titles to each other and borrow each other’s books and eReaders depending but he doesn’t read as frequently as I do, lol

  7. Great list. Like yours my sister is an avid reader. I try and recommend books to her, but normally I can’t get her to read them. She’s more of a romance girl, and I’m more of a YA/Dystopian/Fantasy type reader.

    My TTT

  8. I haven’t read any of these! But it’s so cool that you and your sister have such similar taste, and both blog about books! My sister’s and my tastes overlap quite often, but she has a lot less time to read than I do. I think I would’ve overwhelmed her if I’d recommended 10 books, haha! Great list though. I hope Beth picks up some of your picks soon! πŸ™‚

  9. I really need to pick up Cruel Summer soon, so many people love it. And I completely agree, The Host is way better than the Twilight Saga, especially where the plot is concerned. I know a lot of people have talked about the ending to Dangerous Girls and it makes me really curious as to what it actually was, haha.

    Thanks for stopping by my top ten!

    • You’re welcome Hollie. Thanks for the return visit! I loved Cruel Summer. It’s SO good. I’m glad you agree about The Host. It really is a lot better. I hope you’re curious enough to try out Dangerous Girls.. πŸ˜€

  10. That is so fun that you have a sister who blogs too!! And reads! I’m definitely jealous. I love how you put a book on there just because you want someone to discuss it with. Everytime I read a book where I feel all these opinions on, I’m always wishing I could rant or fangirl about whatever it was I liked/hated with someone. You’re so lucky you can do that! I hope she likes your recs!

    Thanks for stopping by My TTT

    • Thanks Michelle! I’m very lucky that my sister and I share a love of reading and book blogging. It’s also really nice to be able to discuss books that I NEED to discuss with someone else. Thanks for the return visit πŸ™‚

  11. I’ve never heard of most of these and the only one I read is The Host (good book). I’ve added Cruel Summer to my Goodreads to-read shelf. It seems like it would be a good read.

    Thank you for stopping by my post!

  12. I really like the fact that you’ve made your list so specific. I haven’t read any of the books on your list, but it was interesting to read why you want your sister to read them.

  13. This makes me wish I had a sister to talk about books! It’s probably easy to recommend when you know someone so well.

    I really want to read Dangerous Girls. I’m going to try to get to B&N tomorrow, and I’ll have to look for it.

  14. I’m excited to get around to reading Dangerous Girls, and your comment about the ending intrigues me further. I can’t wait to see what I think. πŸ™‚
