Top Ten YA Books I'd Recommend To Adults

Before I start I want to say how sorry I am for not posting in the last week and half as I did have my Year 11 Exams and was very busy studying for them. And then over the weekend it was my birthday and I was doing birthday things. If you follow me on twitter I am sorry for many apologies  that I sent out. So back to what you came here for.

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten list that one of the bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. All Bloogers are then welcomed to join. This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is: Top Ten Books I'd Recommend To X Person

I am aiming my list as, Young Adult books that I recommend adults to read, as sometimes I get the feeling that even though some adults want to try and read some YA they don’t know where to start, and if they start on a book that isn’t quite what they are looking for that might never read YA again. I am a firm believer that anyone over the age of 12 maybe a little older can read YA and love it so here is my list of what I think adults could read and love.  Again like I say every week, these are in no particular order.

1. The Fault in out Stars by John Green - I adore this book, I think it’s an amazing read and a real eye opener; it knocks you on your feet and makes you think what is real. I think this will be an amazing book for adults to read to help them bring themselves back to reality and to also show then that Teens do feel emotional as well. You can read my full review here

2. The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins – I know that my mum is very hesitate on reading these, as it’s children killing children and I just think, would it make a difference if it was adults killing adults, no they are still human, I think this is what most adults don’t like about the books.  She loves the movies so I  keep on trying to convince her to read them as they are so much better. But I think if you are an adult you should defiantly read The Hunger Games Trilogy it is so much more than Killing people 

3. The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare – For an Adult that likes demons, Angel and all types of supernatural creatures, I think that they should totally read this series. They are really good reads and I think everyone should read them. They can show the adults what life is like growing up, coming into adulthood for a Teen, through the metaphor that Cassandra uses. My mum watched the movie and feel in love, so she decided to read the books, she read the whole series in a month; it normally takes her 1 month to read one book.  So as you can see Adults can read and love these books as well. Here is my review on City of Bones. 

4. Pawn by Aimee Carter – I just read this recently and I think it’s an amazing read and as dystopian is quite ‘in’ at the moment I think this is a perfect read to pick it up and understand it. I think adults will enjoy this even though the main protagonist is in her teens; she and others are relatable in certain ways. My Review for Pawn will be up in a few days

5. Just Listen by Sarah Dessen – Is a beautiful romance that everyone should read, and I think that they will enjoy. I think it attracted females more, but not saying males won’t like. I think that sometimes everyone needs that romantic read.  You can read my review of Just Listen Here

6.The Harry Potter Series by J.K Rowling – although it’s not YA, I think everyone should read Harry Potter no matter how old you are, everyone can learn something from it.

7. Divergent by Veronica Roth – Again with the Dystopian so ‘in’ right now, I think this is a perfect read, especially with the movie coming out soon.  I think this is a great coming of age story, finding out whom you are. I think both teens and adults can benefit from Divergent and both can love it. You can take a look at my review on Divergent.

8. Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan – Yes again I know this isn’t
‘YA’  but I think these are great read for adults, also great for parents to read to their children, they can both enjoy it and love it. I don’t know many people that have read Percy Jackson and disliked it. You can read my review on the first book here and the rest of the reviews are up on my blog.

9. Daughter of Smoke and Bone  by Lani Taylor – If your an adult or you  know one that likes, Angels, Mystery and loves to not know what is happening. This is a good read for you. I think both teens and adults can enjoy these books. 

10. The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon – I just started reading this but I really think adults will enjoy this books as well as teens, especially those whom like science fiction and fantasy. 

 So there you go, there is my list, there is probably lost more to add to this list, but from what I have read these are what I think adults would like if they read YA. Do you agree with any of these? What would you put on the list? 


  1. Harry Potter for sure :)
