If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment section of their post. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

Top Ten Books I Feel As Though Everyone Has Read But Me

1. The Hunger Games
2.      Water for Elephants
3.      The Iron Fey Series
4.      The Blue Bloods Series (I just requested them on paperbackswap so I will start reading soon)
5.      Eat Pray Love ( I have seen the movie and loved it but my mom hated the book and I trust her judgment so no Eat Pray Love for me)
6.      Delirium
7.      Mockingjay
8.  Divergent
9. 1984 (I am pretty good about reading the classics and considering I am an English major I have read a lot of them but 1984 I have started and stopped about 5 times)
10.  Three Cups of Tea (my mom loved this book, I have just never gotten around to it I will eventually)

I think most of these books I will get around to eventually, well, except for Eat Pray Love but I have had them all on my TBR pile at one point and time or another and for some reason I just did not want to read them, so maybe it is a sign that I won’t like them. I don’t know,  guess I have to read more books I don’t like to balance out all of the good reviews on this site.

World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War
My Teaser:
“She was referring to the City of Ghosts, whose temples and shrines were dedicated to the underworld. Like Old Dachang, it had been an unlucky obstacle to China’s next Great Leap Forward. It had been evacuated, demolished then almost entirely drowned.”
p. 10 World War Z by Max Brooks

oops that would be three sentences but I liked them all together so that’s what you get.
What’s your teaser?


  1. World War Z looks really good :)

    Here's mine:

  2. I'd definitely recommend Divergent and then the Hunger Games :)

  3. Mockingjay made my list as did Divergent! I tried to read Eat, Pray, Love once upon a time and was bored. The movie was equally boring for me, but tons of folks loved it.

  4. I haven't read all of the books on that list either. I'm working my way to some of them, though. I just finished "The Hunger Games" on Saturday (LOVE), and I'm reading "The Iron King" now.

    Also, intense teaser. Thanks for sharing!

    - April

  5. That sounds really good.
