Top Ten Tuesday

Today I'm participating in Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Seven Books That Make You Think
(About the World, Life, People, etc):

1. The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson.  This book had me talking to everyone about medical ethics and what they would do in the same situation.

2. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot.  I have worked with HeLa cells before so it was interesting learning the story behind them and the ethical issues that went with obtaining and marketing these cells.

3. Thirteen Reason Why by Jay Asher.  How do your actions and words affect others?  Jay Asher shows how sometimes the smallest thing affects others greatly.

4. The Life you Longed for by Maribeth Fischer.  Dealing with the aftermath of a mother's selfish mistake while in the middle of fighting her child's deadly and mysterious illness. 

5. Hate List by Jennifer Brown.  Another book where people's actions affect others and dealing with the blame of a horrible incident. 

6.  Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte.  What will love drive you to do? 

7.  If I Stay by Gayle Forman.  If almost everything you cherish was taken away from you, would you choose to stay or leave?

That's all I can think of, but I'm excited to read your choices.  I love books that make me think!

  2. I agree with Wuthering Heights! Totally made me think! :)

  3. I haven't heard much about Hate List before today but now I've seen it on several Top Ten Tuesday lists I think I may just have to add it to my TBR list.

  4. The Adoration Of Jenna Fox had me thinking so much I immediately called my sister, purchased her a Kindle copy, and made her read it so we could discuss. I just had to discuss with someone!

  5. I'm going to have to read JENNA FOX one of these days. I've heard it's quite good! Love your list, Lisa! thanks for visiting the blog.

  6. I have only read If I Stay, and it really is a book to make you reflect on things and not take life for granted. My heart aches just by thinking about it.

  7. I haven't read any of the books on this list but I definitely took note. Books about ethical dilemmas tend to stick with me the most.


I love love love hearing your wonderful thoughts! Thanks for stopping by and happy reading.
