Amanda’s Top Ten Tuesday – Books for Non-Readers

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week we talk about our top ten with a different topic provided by Jana. This week’s topic is my top ten books I’d hand to someone who claims to not like reading.

The Martian by Andy Weir
This is a movie and I find that books have been adapted can sometimes tempt non-readers.

The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
Who doesn’t love Fey stories? This is an older one, but it’s still so good.

The City We Became by N.K. Jemisin
I just feel like the pitch “it’s a book about New York City becoming sentient” would have to entice some people.

Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
While this isn’t my favorite by this author, I think the interview format that the book is written in would be an easy sell to a non-reader.

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
I think I can sell this one because it has a Netflix adaptation.

Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire
This series is all novellas, so the short length of the book could make it seem “easier” to read. Then once they read the first one, they’ll be hooked and have to read the next six books in the series.

Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant
C’mon, killer mermaids. Who doesn’t that appeal to?

Final Girls by Riley Sager
This is a fun and mysterious thriller that I personally think was a pretty quick read. So, I would recommend it for anyone that I don’t think would like fantasy or science fiction.

Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert
Another one that I would recommend when I didn’t think fantasy or science fiction would appeal to my audience. This book is fun and steamy.

A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
A beauty and the beast retelling. I think retellings would be super easy to pitch to non-readers because of the movie retellings.

What books would you recommend to non-readers?

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
