Top Ten "Older" Books I Don't Want People To Forget About
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the ladies at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is the top ten "older" books you don't want people to forget about. Love this topic! Let's do this thing!
Jane Eyre. Because everyone should read this book at least once in their lifetime. I still have my tattered beat-up, marked-up copy from high school. :D
Harry Potter. I'm going to steal a line from Alan Rickman and say that whenever I'm older, I want to be sitting on my couch, reading Harry Potter. Whenever my grandkids walk by, I'll hear them say "After all this time?", and I'll respond "Always."
The Perks of Being a Wallflower. If you've read it, you'd understand why.
Sense and Sensibility. If you haven't read any of Jane Austen's books, let this one be the first. It's simply stunning.
Little Women. “I've got the key to my castle in the air, but whether I can unlock the door remains to be seen.”
Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Duh, it's awesome!
Thirteen Reasons Why. This book is far from an easy read, but I still believe everyone should know about the affects of bullying.
Divergent. I love it, so everyone should read it and love it, too.
Jellicoe Road. This is just one of those books that has you thinking about it for days. I love, love, love it and think everyone, their mom, their dog, and their grasshopper should read it.
Looking For Alaska. Again, not always an easy read but definitely an epic one.
And there you have it! What books do you not want people to forget?
