10 Books Recommendations to a Friend

This week's 10 on Tuesday is 10 books you would recommend to a friend.  Just 10?  OK, I'll try this, but 10 is going to be a hard number to stop at.  (All links are to Goodreads.)

1. Little Women (only because it is my comfort book that I always end up going back to)
2. To Kill a Mockingbird (love it love it love it)
3. The Red Tent
4. Tuck Everlasting
5. The Time Traveller's Wife (I hated it, I loved it, I hated it, I really loved it)
6. The Harry Potter Series (only because it is the best children's literature written and I don't want to waste seven of my spaces)
7. The Very Quiet Cricket (Because every reading list needs a good bedtime story)
8. The Hunger Games Trilogy (they should be read together)
9. The Handmaid's Tale
10. Knitting a Boyfriend Sweater (OK, you can't buy this yet.  I wrote it and it isn't published, but I'm working on it.  I smile when I read it because I enjoyed writing it so much.)

What's on your list?


  1. To Kill a Mockingbird is a wonderful story. One of my boys is reading it now.

    I really like the Time Traveler's Wife too. I can't imagine what that story outline looked liked though, and I think she did a fantastic job telling their story.

  2. To Kill a Mockingbird, my fav from childhood, Harry Potter, simply wonderful and a must, Knitting a Boyfriend Sweater, can't wait to read it!

  3. i like your list! i forgot about The Red Tent; that would have been on my list, too. i'll have to keep my eye out for Knitting a Boyfriend Sweater! (love the title)

  4. Thank you for the list, I loved/hated the Time Traveler's Wife too. Looking forward to your book.
