This week's theme is...

Top Ten Books I'd Recommend To X Person

Since it's my choice, I'm choosing:
My reluctant male reader (:

Horde (Razorland, #3)1. Horde by Ann Aguirre
I haven't read it myself, yet. But my reluctant male reader has read the first two. So he's reading this one right after I get it and read it myself(;

Elsewhere2. Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin
A little bit of an odd choice? Maybe, but he's already started it. So I'll will make him finish it. Ha.

Plague (Gone, #4)Fear (Gone, #5)Light (Gone, #6)
3. The rest of the Gone series by Michael Grant
He's currently on Plague and he's reading it sooooooo sloooooooow. He still needs Fear and Light. He will not get away with not reading them. I mean- I recommend them to him(:

Paper Towns4. Paper Towns by John Green
I think the male protagonist is the key here. He's pretty humorous and insightful and easy to relate to. In guy words, he's cool. And he's in love with a girl he'll never have.

It's Kind of a Funny Story5. It's Kind of A Funny Story by Ned Vizzini
Again, male protagonist and POV. Same funny, insightful guy. Same girl he'll never have. Well, not the same girl, but the same idea. I don't know why that's such a relatable theme. Does that happen very often?

Like the Red Panda6. Like the Red Panda by Andrea Seigel
Girl POV, but something about her is weird. I'm not sure how a guy would react to this one. But I'd recommend it, just because I think it's be interesting.

Crossing7. Crossing by Andrew Xia Fukada
Guy POV. This one is quiet and aloof. I mostly wonder how my a reluctant male reader would react to this. That ending was pretty trippy and I cried so much.

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games #1)8. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
He's already got a glimpse of the dystopian genre. He really should read this. You can't possibly be reading dystopians without reading this. That being said, if you haven't, please do!
If only to have something to compare everything else to.

The Forest of Hands and Teeth (The Forest of Hands and Teeth, #1)

9. Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
He's read Enclave and Outpost. I think it's basically the same idea as this. Zombie-like creatures. Dysfunctional society. A girl that stands out whether she wants to or not. Decent amount of action and adventure.

What My Girlfriend Doesn't Know

What My Mother Doesn't Know (What My Mother Doesn't Know #1)10. What My Mother Doesn't Know/What My Girlfriend Doesn't Know by Sonya Sones
Yes, it's prose. The first is in a girl's POV. The second is a sequel of sorts from the guy's POV. I really wonder how he'd react to both of them. The girl POV seems pretty accurate and I guess I just want confirmation on the guy POV? Haha. Either way, very fun, fast reads. Might just keep the attention span of a guy interest him.

Do you have any reluctant male readers? Would you recommend any of these?
What's your top ten? Who's it for?
Leave me some links so I can check them out :D

    Sandy @ Somewhere Only We Know

    1. I am still waiting to get that book! It's been out almost a month I just bought Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars so I'm hoping I'll like them both. And The Forest of Hands and Teeth is pretty good. I read it in my early days of dystopian reading, too! Thanks so much for stopping by and following :D


Thanks for stopping by! I do read every comment and I reply to all the ones that elicit some sort of response. So if you want, you can check back in a couple days to see if I replied.(:
