Top Ten Tuesday - Recommended Books
This week's Top Ten Tuesday is the Top Ten Books that you wouldn't have read unless someone had recommended them to you. Here we go:
1.) The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. The cover of these books threw me off. They reminded me of spy books, or anything by Clive Cussler, I didn't realize the treasure that lay underneath that tricky cover.
2.) Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling. Again. The covers. I obviously judge many a book by their cover. They looked like a little kids book, and while they are geared towards children/young adult, there is much fun to be had for an adult to read them.
3.) Southern Vampire Series by Charlaine Harris. Ok. Seriously, this publishers need to put less silly looking covers on these books because I didn't read them for the longest time because of the covers and the blurb. It sounded terrible. Then True Blood was premiering and I took a chance and loved them. I am not caught up yet but that is because there are so many good books out right now.
4.) Anita Blake novels by Laurel K. Hamilton. My friend Leigh recommended these to me, and I burned through up to Blue Moon, where I jumped to the other series by Ms. Hamilton that is my next recommended books.
5.) Merry Gentry novels by Laurel K. Hamilton. The first ones are better than the latter where they just seem to sink into erotica with a hint of paranormal, but I still liked them.
6.) The Fionovar Tapestry books by Guy Gavriel Kay. I've only read the first one, but I own the other two, again recommended by my friend Leigh.
7.) Julia Quinn books, recommended to me by my mother.
That's all I can possibly think of at the moment.
