Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Today’s topic was actually ‘Books I Would Hand To Someone Who Claims To Not Like Reading’, but I was really, really struggling with this topic. It’s so difficult to recommend books anyway, and to someone who does not like reading at all? So much depends on what they like and I don’t know, I just couldn’t make this topic work. So I thought I’d twist it a bit and recommend books based on TV shows and… I still struggled quite a bit. This is NOT easy. Maybe I should watch more TV shows. And also, read more books, hah! Anyway, I came up with a few suggestions, so here we go:
What they have in common: vampires, a kickass female leads who hunts down said vampires, a vampire romance, lots of humor and tons of supernatural goodness.
What they have in common: an exploration of what happens after death, a main character who’s not a good person at first but goes on an incredible journey, found family, quirk and humor and all the emotions
What they have in common: similar time periods (umm, give or take 60 years), a romance involving a duke, great secondary characters and a dash (or a lot) of feminism.
What they have in common: a teenage main character who makes unwise but highly entertaining choices in their quest to find love.
What they have in common: People with superpowers trying to be heroes but also kind of failing at it or just outright becoming villains, found family, kind of twisted, kind of fun.
What they have in common: The journey of a gifted young woman who grows up to become a legend in her choice of career, but not without many struggles along the way.
What they have in common: Reality TV show setting, people making cakes, lots of baking goodness
What they have in common: All the science, loveable nerdy characters, romance and humor
What they have in common: Fashionable, all-American girl moving somewhere new (Paris or Alaska, big difference but similar themes) and trying to make the most of it, facing prejudices from locals as well as her own prejudices, lots of drama but also romance.
What they have in common: A reality TV show setting in which a group of women compete for the love (and proposal) of one man, lots of drama
