Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. It was created because of their love of lists, and I myself love lists as well - so you will see it frequently popping up on MMSAI!
Everyone is welcome to join in, and don't worry if you can't think of 10 - just do as many as you can. And of course, be sure to link back to TBATB (and leave me a link here too!) on your post!
As always they are in no particular order.
This Weeks Topic is:
Top Ten Books That Make You Think (About The World, People, Life, etc.)
1. Scars by Cheryl Rainfield – This book will drag you down and build you up. It’s relevant and deep and should be a must read for all teen girls. I honestly can’t say enough wonderful things about this book. It will really make you think, about life, abuse, family and the inner workings of ones mind.
2. Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma – Forbidden tackles the most taboo of all topics. Incest. It might sound weird, but this is in fact one of my all time favorite books. Ever. I think that a lot of that reason is because it really does make you think. Grab tissues because you won’t make it through this book with out tears.
3. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick – This one really makes you about how different each family can be. Neighbors can share a street name and a fence, but behind closed doors they couldn’t be more different.
4. Bumped by Megan McCafferty – could this really happen to the world? And if it did how would it be handled?
5. Breaking Beautiful by Jennifer Shaw Wolf – Your mind will turn with the pages of this book. This is another one of those must reads for teenaged girls.
6. If I Lie by Corrine Jackson – Okay, seriously this one will work your brain so much it might just explode. What would you do for a friend? How far would you go to protect them? Would you sacrifice yourself? Things are not always what they seem, If I Lie will teach you that.
7. Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by David Levithan & Rachel Cohn – I have always wondered if I hid my own book of dares in a book store if it would find someone willing to play along?
8. Shine by Lauren Myracle – I often wonder what this world is coming to, with hate crimes and how not everyone is treated equally. Shine will make you think about it too.
Eight is all I could come up with this week? Do you disagree or agree with any of my choices? What’s your TTT? Link me so I can check it out too!
