Top 10 Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is books that were recommended.
I watch a lot of BookTube, and these are the books that I read because of BookTube. Just because a book or a series of books is on this list, it doesn’t necessarily mean that I enjoyed them.
Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan
The Selection Series by Kiera Cass
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi
The Serafina Series by Robert Beatty
Illuminae by Amie Kauffman and Jay Kristoff
The Magicians by Lev Grossman
The Divergent Series by Veronica Roth
The Fault in our Stars by John Green
The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
Fault in My Stars! My poor son is named Patrick–so we of course tease him as “Support Group Patrick.” Miss Peregrine!
I just bought the Magicians recently because of all the praise I see about it + the TV series. Which book/series among the ten would you recommend?
Definitely Furthermore, Serafina, and Miss Peregrine’s. I really enjoyed The Unexpected Everything if you’re looking for contemporary. I didn’t enjoy the Magicians at all, I gave it two stars on Goodreads.
I’ll check them out! I’ve heard a tone of good things about the Unexpected Everything. Ah. I think I’ll still read the Magicians, maybe not so soon.
I couldn’t even watch the TV series.
Oh my gosh, I cannot believe I forgot the Percy Jackson series. That was recommended to me as well. Now I feel like a bad blogger.
That was a series that I did not enjoy at all, especially Sea of Monsters.
I have the first book of Mafi’s Shatter Me series, but I’ve heard good things about Furthermore as well. How was it?
I absolutely love it, the writing was colorful and beautiful.
I really like The Magicians series. It’s an excellent story. You’ve got a great list. I need to read the Kiera Cass and the Miss Peregrine books. I’m sorely behind.
I gave The Magicians two stars, I didn’t like it enough to continue with the series.
