Ten Books I'd Recommend To Someone Who Doesn't Read YA
1. The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins. These books are extremely fast paced and exciting. I think they are a little too violent to be considered YA (even though I know they are) and have lots of action and a touch of romance so they are great for a wide audience.
2. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. This book is pure awesomeness. Again it has a little bit of something for everyone. If you haven't read this book, drop everything and go out and get it now.
3. Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles. If you like your romances hot and steamy and your male hero even sexier then this is the book for you!
4. The Sky is Everwhere by Jandy Nelson. A heartbreaking and beautiful tale about the loss of a sister.
5. The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta. There are many intertwining story lines and a lot of them involved adults or adult issues. Another amazing story by my favorite author.
6. Beauty Queens by Libbra Bray. One of the funniest books I've read. It a humorous look at beauty queens being trapped on a deserted island. It starts out with the common stereotypes but then looks deeper at the contestants and who they are behind the Revlon and Aqua Net.
7. The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling. I haven't met a person who didn't enjoy these novels.
8. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys. Lina's story was breathtaking, beautiful and heartbreaking all at the same time. This is a story of fighters and survival. I don't have words to describe how powerful Lina's story was.
9. The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney. This is the type of book, though at times was emotionally difficult to read, stays with you long after you put it down. It motivates you and makes you want to make a difference in the world.
10. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. The most beautifully written descriptions of death. Gorgeous and heartbreaking, this is a book everyone will love.
