* * Top Ten Tuesdays (TTT) is a weekly event hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. * *
This week we are talking about the Top Ten Books I Was "Forced" to Read. This is an interesting question because as a book lover you are usually open to anything and everything. Of course there are those few books that may not appeal to you, but when a friend is nagging at you that you HAVE to read it. Well you must give in just to see what the hype is about. Here are our picks!
1. Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
A good friend of mine named Doris could not stop talking about this book. She was so crazy about it that she even bought it for me and had it shipped to my house. Just for the simple fact that I HAD to read it. I am eternally in debt to her. Without her I would have never meet Daemon♥
2. Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohen & David Levithan
It was right around Christmas time that I went on my Goodreads page to ask for a fun quick read. The very first thing that showed up was Dash & Lily. Words can't express how much I love this book. The fact that I was actually reading the book during the dates it was set was a bit surreal. :)
3. Dark Lover by J.R Ward
A former co-worker of mine, Janet, was raving about this awesomely fantastic new adult vampire series, The Black Dagger Brotherhood series. All day long I had to read about how hot these vampires were, so I decided to take the chance and read the first book. O.M.G! I instantly fell in love with the brothers and their world. I had never read any "adult" books before BDB, so you can say that thanks to J.R. Ward and Janet, I am hooked on them now!Ana
4.Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
When I was younger I used to love to read and had the best collection of the Babysitter Club books ever. Then high school came around and my focus was on the opposite sex and not so much books anymore. It wasn't until years down the road (yeah, I am old LOL), after I was already married and had my son, that I started reading again. My friend Jenny, begged me to start reading Twilight. I was a little skeptical because I wasn't into vampires or werewolves. Plus she had already read the series 3 times, so I told myself that it had to be good then. It was because of Twilight that I fell in love with reading again and discovered the blogging world. You see, Jenny was helping her cousin Yara, review books for her site, Once Upon a Twilight and since I was in love with Twilight, Yara brought me in and introduced me to blogging. I owe this little series a lot.
5. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
This is THE book that started my obsession. My love for this story is inexplicable. Again, I have to give thanks to my good friends for this recommendation.
9. Tantalize by Cynthia Leitich Smith
I struggled so much with this book. It got a lot of mixed reviews and in the end it was one big fat let down for me.
10. Spring Training by Parker Kincade
What can I say about this book? I had such a hard time getting into it this book and connecting with the characters.Daisel
What about you guys? Anything that you've been forced to read that you weren't crazy about, but actually found yourself enjoying it a lot more than you thought?
