Top Ten Books I'd Recommend to Someone Who Doesn't Read YA
1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - For me, THG was the book that opened me up to YA literature, and I know it did the same for a lot of the kids in my grade. So, I'd definitely start non-YA readers with this great book.
2. Divergent by Veronica Roth - After reading THG, I'd let the non-YA reader try another book of the same genre, for a more elaborate taste.
3. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins - I'd totally flip them over and force them upon a completely different type of YA book. Surely, they need some amazing contemporary in their life.
4. Heist Society by Ally Carter - Since they loved Anna (I'm assuming), I would then recommend Heist Society, because it's contemporary and extremely fun.
5. The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen - I would then inform them about the YA superstar authors, such as Sarah Dessen. To me, this is Dessen's best book, so I'd start the reader off with her best work.
6. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare - Just for a taste of urban fantasy and humor, I'd recommend the Mortal Instruments series.
7. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare - "Oh, you didn't like the Mortal Instruments? That's okay. You HAVE to read this series. It's so much better."
8. Delirium by Lauren Oliver - Prime example of gorgeous, gorgeous writing in YA literature.
9. Anything John Green - Come on. It's John Green. You have to read some John Green to satisfy your YA taste buds.
10. Anything Meg Cabot - She's kind of the queen of chick lit. Everyone should read something of hers.
That concludes my top ten! What's on your list? :)
