Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week there’s a new topic for a top ten list.
This week’s topic is Ten Book Recommendations for ______________. I went with Ravenclaws for my blank, so here we go:
1. Fangirl – I think other Ravenclaws will feel a kinship with Cath like I did. She’s smart, writes fanfiction, is a fangirl (obviously), etc. Just talking about this book makes me want to re-read it.
2. The Start of Me and You – There was a high level of nerdy stuff in this book (Quiz Bowl, nerdy banter, list making, etc.), so yay for that! Plus there were references to Harry Potter, and the Gilmore Girls…two of my favorite things.
3. We Were Liars – Like 98% of the time, I can guess the “twist” that’ll happen in the book before it happens. But this book actually surprised me. I never saw the twist coming, and it blew my mind. I’d highly recommend this one.
4. The Hating Game – One of my all-time favorite books. I love the back-and-forth banter between Lucy and Josh. It’s super entertaining, like read this book ASAP people entertaining.
5. Summer of Sloane – The writing is so beautiful in this book, and I think Ravenclaws will enjoy it immensely. It’s definitely a book that you could read in one sitting.
6. Legend – This book makes you think about society nowadays, and what the future could look like. As you’re reading, you’re trying to unravel what’s all happening/what will happen. June is a prodigy, so I think that might resonate with some Ravenclaws as well.
7. The Lunar Chronicle series – The females in the series are really smart, and pretty bad-ass. My favorite is Cress, but honestly they’re all great. I’d highly recommend these futuristic books, if you haven’t read them already.
8. I’ll Give You the Sun – The writing is absolutely amazing. Both Jude and Noah are creative, and intelligent…two traits highly prized among Ravenclaws.
9. The Anatomical Shape of a Heart – Both Bex and Jack are creative. It’s a little gorier than my usual reads (what with the cadavers), but I really loved it.
10. P.S. I Like You – There’s song writing, guitar playing, anonymous note exchanges, swoony romance, etc. What’s not to love in this very creativity-driven book?
Have you read any of the books I listed here? If so, what’d you think of them?
