Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  
This week's topic:  Top Ten Books You Recommend to Others to Read

Without even pausing a minute, I knew instantly the top 3 books I tell others to read:

The Help by Kathryn Stockett
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls

 These three have topped my list for several years now, so that telling others about them has become fairly automatic.  In some ways I feel I discovered these novels for other people because I read them long before they became book club favorites and bestsellers.

The other seven that I have been telling others about - a few are new additions- are:

The Wednesday Wars by Gary D. Schmidt

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson

The Breadwinner by Deborah Ellis

These Is My Words by Nancy E. Turner

Whistling in the Dark by Lesley Kagen

Left Neglected by Lisa Genova

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

Glass Castle made mine also. I am so happy to see Left neglected, I really enjoyed it also but Still Alice is on my list.
