Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week we are blabbing about books for people who like_________. Fill in the blanks. Now, we all know that everyone is going to do The Hunger Games. I am too (sort of) because HOLY CRAP THERE ARE SO MANY GOOD DYSTOPIANS OUT THERE (and because I recently did a TTT about retellings, further showing my inability/unwillingness to plan ahead)!!! But mostly it’s because there are so many good dystopians, I swear.
Anyhoo, I’m first going to list my books for HG peeps, but I’m also doing a second list for those who like funny, girly reads.First, we’ll tackle the serious stuff:
TEN EIGHT BOOKS FOR HUNGER GAMES FANS
2. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi- Oh yes, this was fantastic, especially because there was a great deal of kissing in the shower (mind out of the gutter. All clothing was intact. The shower hid the talking/smooching sounds from prying ears. Apparently, these were some LOUD kissers).
4. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater- Such a cool, somewhat dark premise. It isn’t a dystopian, but the setting, the writing, and the characters all lend themselves to that sort of feeling. It’s excellent.
AND ONTO THE HAPPY…
TEN FIVE BOOKS FOR FANS OF THE PRINCESS DIARIES (ie: funny, girly reads)
4. The Ruby Oliver books by E. Lockhart- I don’t know how to describe them except to say, OMG, Ruby, I love you. These books are SO funny.
Thaz all folks.
