Top Ten Tuesday-- Books that make me think

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the girls over at The Broke and the Bookish

This weeks topic is Top Ten Books That Make You Think (About The World, People, Life, etc.)

These are in no  order, just whatever popped into my head first.

1. Every Day by David Levithan:
I just read this last week and oh boy does it make you think. Makes me wonder about gender roles, love, relationships of all forms. Even religion. It blew my mind.

2. The Fault In Our Stars by John Green:
All of John's books make me think. It's part of the reason his books are so brilliant. I still think about this book all the time and get all weepy. It definitely makes me think about people and books and how we react to them.

3. Incarnate by Jodi Meadows:
In my review for this book, I talked about how much I loved it because of how much it made me think. How many questions it asked and how the world is set up. So so cool.

4. Stolen by Lucy Christopher:
This was more about my reaction to the book. Stockholm syndrome is a very real and questioning thing.

5. Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma:
Made me question love and all the complications that come with it.

6. Unwind by Neal Shusterman:
OMG this Just wow. I hope to goodness that nothing like this ever happens and hope that people never become so unconnected and cold hearted to think that this is acceptable.

7. Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins:
I don't believe this needs explaining.

8. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie:
Heh. This one is more about how brilliant the writing is. Makes me happy and has me questioning the whole book.

9. The Deadly Sister by Eliot Schrefer:
I was going through my list of reviews and this one popped out at me. It's not normally one I talk about much because I only thought it was okay. It's the ending that has me thinking for reasons I can't say on here because it's a spoiler. It has me thinking about anger, jealousy, and desperation.

10. Tell Me A Secret by Holly Cupala:
This is another one that jumped out at me. Maybe this one has me thinking because it's one of the only books I've read about teen pregnancy.


  1. What a terrific list of thought-provokers. Great job.

  2. I love books that make me think. There are several on your list I've been meaning to read.

  3. I really liked The Hunger Games books. The others I haven't read but John Green is an author that I've been meaning to read for some time.


I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
