I am so excited for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. I can’t wait to see what everyone else is going to write up. WARNING: my options are a bit contrived, eep.
I Would Recommend: All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
Why: Because it’s a startling look into depression and survivor’s guilt.
2. If I Taught: Feminist Literature 101
I Would Recommend: Half The World by Joe Abercrombie,
Why: Because there’s wonderful ladies of all ages and skillset driving the novel.
3. If I Taught: Classical Studies 101
I Would Recommend: Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman
Why: Because Alexander The Great is the shiniest conqueror since Achilles himself.
4. If I Taught: Animal Care 101
I Would Recommend: The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
Why: Because Sean Kendrick convinced a killer water horse to love him. That’s skills.
5. If I Taught: Photography 101
I Would Recommend: Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children
Why: Because it couples atmospheric black and white pictures with a creepy plot.
6. If I Taught: World War II History 101
I Would Recommend: Code Name Verity
Why: It’s an engaging and heartbreaking personal account of the victims of war.
7. If I Taught: Modern Classics 101
I Would Recommend: The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
Why: It takes a classic boy on a quest to self-discovery and puts a delightful macabre twist on it.
8. If I Taught: World Travel 101
I Would Recommend: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Why: Karou visits the most gorgeous places. The story infuses magic into already beautiful locations.
9. If I Taught: Game Development 101
I Would Recommend: Armada by Ernest Cline
Why: Never have I read a book that went into so much details about not just one, but two, fictional games. Armada and Terra Forma both sound like they’d be chart toppers in real life.
10. If I Taught: Political Studies 101
I Would Recommend: Golden Son by Pierce Brown
Why: Just watching the factions in the universe battling it out in the most cutthroat manner, it will teach you: Don’t do politics.
