Top Ten Tuesday2Top Ten Books I’d Recommend to a Non-Reader

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish.

There are many people I’d want to convince to read books. Luckily, I don’t have any problems like that within my family, because we’re all big bookworms over here! I would have picked my mom, if it was not for the fact that with a little guiding she’s absolutely hooked to Young Adult right now (and is even reviewing!). So that’s why I picked non-readers in general. I am addressing every non-reader when I say: People! You are missing out Big Time!

Lets start with some Classics shall we?


I think those all pretty much speak for themselves. They’re all very good books and not called Classics for nothing. Pride and Prejudice is my favourite read of all time, and when people ask me who Jane Austen is I seriously get the urge to slap them (Yes, I actually had someone ask me this twice, and because of this we probably didn’t become friends….).

Then, for the Books that became well-know for Non-Readers when they where made into Movies


Because yes! The books are actually worth spending time on! Even though I agree that the movies are great, believe me when I say that the books can be even better -yes it is possible!

And not to forget: My Personal Favourites!


These three books are only three of the books on the huge list I could give you. They’re favourites of mine and a definite must read to all of those out there that claim that reading is boring. These books are so much more than just words on paper and will be able to move you to tears!

    Really great list! I loved Divergent, Harry Potter and The Great Gatsby! I still need to read quite a few of these, they’ve been on my TBR list for ages! My TTT.

      I had the luck that my English teacher had me read one, and when I did I couldn’t stop reading the Classics!

    Someone didn’t know who Jane Austen was?! P&P is one of my favorites, too, though I like all of those classics (especially The Great Gatsby)!

      Yeah… Someone didn’t know who Jane Austen was, two people actually. I couldn’t believe it either!
      I totally agree, The Great Gatsby is an awesome read!

    Ohh, YES, to Divergent and To Kill a Mockingbird (though I almost always write “to kill a mockingjay” these days. XD The Hunger Games has ruined me…but I’m okay with that). All non-readers are missing out SO Much. It’s weird how they can live like that.

    Thanks for following my blog! I’ve followed you back. :)

      Whaha! That’s awesome! The Hunger Games vs To Kill a Mockingbird (I just saw the second movie: Loved it!!!). Non-readers do miss out a lot, why people think reading is stupid? I have no clue. We readers are Awesome!

      Thank you for following! I really appreciate it :)

    Pride and Prejudice is a great choice! I love Jane Austen’s work! Have you read All Roads Lead to Austen? It’s an amazing book. I’ve got a review on my blog if you want to check it out.

      I haven’t yet actually! I am going to though, it sounds very promising from what I’ve read on your blog! Jane Austen is my favourite author so I’ll take any chance to read about her :D
      Thanks for visiting my blog!
