Top Ten Tuesday 1021:27
Top Ten Tuesday is weekly meme hosted The Broke and the Bookish. There is a new topic for each week and the participating bloggers are invited to post their Top Ten lists on it.
This week's topic is about books we'd recommend to a specific person and I chose to make recommendations to a male friend. I read a lot of romance and YA fiction, so I decided to challenge myself in this way to see if any of the books that I read would also be interesting/suitable for my male book lover friends.
Top Ten Books I'd Recommend To a Male Friend
Game of Thrones series by George Martin - This series is not my usual read but I loved it anyway. It was my husband who introduced it to me, so this is without a doubt suitable for male readers :)
The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins - Another favourite series of mine. Despite its romantic undertones, I believe this is a story that would appeal equally to both male and female readers.
The Divergent series by Veronica Roth - I haven't read the final book yet, but I enjoyed the first two.
If I Stay and Where She Went by Gayle Forman - I loved this series, the second book in particular is an all-time favourite of mine. I am not sure how I male reader will take these books, they are worth at try.
The Fever series by Karen Marie Moning - This is my favourite urban fantasy series. It is told from a female POV and has strong romantic elements, yet the world building is great and the conflicts are universal, so I hope it is suitable for both sexes.
The Maze Runner series by James Dashner - Nice, action-packed series about teenage boys and girls
Legend series by Marie Lu - same as The Maze Runner. I still have the read the final book, but I loved the first two, so I can definitely recommend them to both men and women.
Lumatere Chronicles by Melina Marchetta - A fantasy series by one of my favourite authors which creates a complex mixture of fantasy, action and romance
The Piper’s Son by Melina Marchetta - A powerful contemporary NA story - very emotional without being cheesy.
On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta - My favourite of Ms Marchetta's contemporary books. I am not sure how a male reader will see the story but for me it was an amazing journey of growing up and discovering oneself.
