Top Ten "Older" Books I Don't Want People to Forget About
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
I decided to interpret "old" as books that are now backlisted that people should read, even with all these shiny new releases tempting them!

1. Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King

2. Luna by Julie Anne Peters
3. Going Bovine by Libba Bray

4. Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin
5. 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher

6. A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
A Great and Terrible Beauty (Gemma Doyle, #1)
7. Looking for Alaska by John Green

8. Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway

9. I am the Messenger by Markus Zusak

10. Good Girls by Laura Ruby

Have you read any of these books? What's on your list?


  1. I've read most of them... Love LUNA, AUDREY,WAIT, LOOKING FOR ALASKA, I AM THE MESSENGER (which often gets buried under The Book Thief), A GREAT AND TERRIBLE BEAUTY, 13 REASONS WHY.

    I still haven't picked up ELSEWHERE....I know I know....everybody and their mother has read it but me. ;-)

  2. Great list!! I've read the majority of the books on your list. Elsewhere, 13 Reasons Why, Audrey Wait, & Vera Dietz are some of my very fav's!

    PS- I love your polka dots :)

  3. We share Markus Zusak on our Top Tens this week. Great choices.

  4. Great list! I have Looking for Alaska and the Gemma Doyle books on my list as well, and I enjoyed 13 Reasons Why :)

  5. I really want to read Please Ignore Vera Dietz. Everybody loved that book! Audrey, Wait! was a fun, cute book. Brilliant plot! :) Great list.

  6. I still need to read these books, I have them on my TBR, at least the majority of these ;)

    My TTT

  7. Audrey, Wait made my list too! I love that book! I loved Elsewhere and Good Girls.

  8. Looking for Alaska and A great and terrible Beauty are favorites of mine. I JUST read Luna and I really liked it. I thought 13 reasons why was well-written but SOMEONE (my co-blogger) hated it unfairly. Here's Ours

  9. I haven't read any of these books, I know a few are on my TBR pile though :)

  10. I have only read one book on your list (A Great and Terrible Beauty), but I have a few out from the library right now. I hope to read them soon.

  11. Since we are kind of obsessed with Audrey Wait! On our blog I avoided including it (too predictable?!) but I am so excited to see it on yours!

  12. I have yet to read ANY of these! But Looking For Alaska is sitting next to my bed, so I will fix this soon ;-) Great TTT.

  13. I really need to read I Am the Messenger. The Book Thief kills me every single time, and I'm so afraid nothing can top it. Great list!

  14. I loved Looking for Alaska, but didn't care for Going Bovine, A Great and Terrible Beauty, or 13 Reasons Why. Definitely going to check out some of these others you've mentioned! I'm especially looking forward to Please Ignore Vera Dietz and Elsewhere. :) Great list!


Your comments brighten my day. :)
