Top Ten Tuesdays: Top Ten Books I Want To Give As Gifts

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the Broke and Bookish.

I'd love to give books to people as gifts! If I wasn't so poor (from buying so many books for myself), lol. 

Top Ten Books I Want To Give As Gifts (and to who...even if you won't actually give them!) :

1. Graceling by Kristin Cashore
I'd give a copy to EVERYONE. It's just that great of a book. 

2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I'd also give this book to EVERYONE just so they can understand why I'm so excited for the movie next year. XD

3. Little Brother by Cory Doctorow
I'd give Seth a copy because he's a tech geek, and I think he'd totally like it, but... I already bought his Christmas present, lol. It's a Batman t-shirt that he really really wanted the last time we were at Walmart together. But I totally recommend this book to everyone, too! :)

4. Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
I'd give a copy to Mrs. Staines, my AP Lit teacher because she's a beast at sarcasm, and I think she'd really enjoy the satire and humor in this book. 

5. StarCrossed by Elizabeth C. Bunce
I'd give my school library a copy since they only have the sequel, which made me sad since I really wanted to read it. I guess it's a good thing the ebook is on sale at Amazon right now. :D

6. Drums, Girls, & Dangerous Pie by Jordan Sonnenblick
This book would be given to everyone, especially to the people who have cancer or is close to someone with cancer. It's just... heartbreaking and hopeful and real

7. Spray by Harry Edge
I'd give this book to all of the players of Assassin who were totally into the game. They deserve to read the book that inspired the game in the first place.  

8. The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks
This book would also be given to everyone just so they have a chance of surviving a zombie apocalypse, cuz, you know, the world's ending next year. :P 

9. Oh, the Places You'll Go! by Dr. Seuss 
I'd give this book to all of the graduating seniors in high school because, well, the title pretty much explains itself. And you always need a book that will give you hope. The rhyming is just an added bonus. XD

10. Bloomability by Sharon Creech
To every middle schooler out there. They need a book about growing up and the bloomabilities that everyone has. 


  1. I've seen Beauty Queens on several lists....It's probably time I need to add this one to my wishlist!

    Here's my Top Ten Books I Want to Give as Gifts.

  2. Lovely list. I really must give Graceling another try; all I hear is wonderful things about it. Loved Beauty Queens. Here is my list http://wp.me/pzUn5-H0
