Top Ten Tuesday #22

Top Ten Tuesday #22

Top Ten Books To Read If You Like I'll Give You The Sun.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish and consists of them picking a topic each week for us bloggers to list our Top Ten.

I find these topics just so hard to do because of the fact that I read such a mix of books but I feel like maybe I could get ten with this topic and I'm going for Jandy Nelson's I'll Give You The Sun, simply because I met her only two days ago and she is such an awesome person (look out for a post about the signing) but anyhoo the books featured below are just going to be beautifully written, lyrical books just like Jandy Nelson's I'll Give You The Sun!

1. The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton
A beautiful magic realism book. This one is just so beautifully written and very character driven much like I'll Give You The Sun.

2. One by Sarah Crossan
This book is another stunner, it's written in verse and extremely emotional.

3. Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson
Again, what can I say if you've loved I'll Give You The Sun read Since You've Been Gone!

And there you go! These are all books that I completely loved because they were beautiful books and just connected with me like Jandy Nelson's I'll Give You The Sun. There is a wide mix of genres though so hopefully you guys might find something of interest! What was on you Top Ten Tuesday?


  1. I'll Give You the Sun is one of my favorite books ever. While I was reading it I was wondering if an alien had written the book because it's just TOO GOOD. Who can write like that??? That's so cool you met her!! I met her at BEA, but wish I could meet her at a smaller signing where I could actually hear her speak or not feel rushed through the line.

  2. Hi! One looks great. I haven't read a book in verse in a long time, so I'll definitely check it out. Great list :)
