Top Ten Books That Make You Think

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the fabulous ladies at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic are the Top Ten Books That Make You Think. Here we gooooo!

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. This book made me think about how people treat others and what an impact it can make.

Article 5 by Kristen Simmons. What would you do if the government truly took over and you didn't have a voice? Eek!

The Survival Kit by Donna Freitas. I couldn't imagine losing a parent, especially my mom. I imagine I'd be as broken as Rose.

If I Stay by Gayle Forman. This book reminds me how fragile life is and how everything can be stripped away in an instant. Do you stay or do you go?

You Against Me by Jenny Downham. Family or love? Right or wrong? Which one would you pick?

Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson. Again, I don't know what it's like to lose a parent, but if the opportunity presented itself, I do know that I wouldn't pass up a road trip of a lifetime.

Winter Longing by Tricia Mills. I cried like a baby when I read this book. In the first 50 pages no less! It really made me think about how how short life is and how I should tell those I love that I love them every single day.

The Maze Runner by James Dashner. Scary, scary world. It makes you think about how brave you'd be if you didn't have a choice.

Divergent by Veronica Roth. If you've ever read Divergent, you'd understand.

Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta. I cannot tell you how much I adore this book. Depression is an issue that's rarely talked about in the YA world, so it's interesting to read about how it affects a girl whose mom suffers from depression.


  1. The Survival Kit definitely made me reflect on things in my personal life. Though it's hard for me to read stories about characters losing their mom, it's still a rewarding experience to understand their story.

  2. Awesome list!! There are a lot of great books on there.

  3. what a great list. I loved if I stay :)

  4. "Divergent by Veronica Roth. If you've ever read Divergent, you'd understand." <-- THIS. I remember seeing you obsessing over Divergent on your blog and just knowing that we would get along because of it!

  5. We have a lot of the same books on our lists and you have a few that I should have added to mine... I NEED to read You Against Me soon. I've heard such great things about it.

    Great list!

  6. so many on my to read list that I had completely forgotten about. love to hear why they got you thinking it's so interesting. seriously I love a good story with some meat

  7. I agree with a lot of your choices (the others I haven't read yet)

    Such A Rush had me thinking for days afterwards too. I know most people thought of it as just a romance but I thought it was interesting to show a gorgeous girl who embraces but is also used for her beauty.


I love, love, love comments, and therefore, love you! Thanks for dropping by!
