Top Ten Tuesday: Books People Have Been Telling Me I MUST Read

Posted August 19, 2014 by Michael @ Knowledge Lost in Top Ten Tuesday / 17 Comments

toptentuesdayIt’s Tuesday again which means time for another round of Top Ten Tuesday; I like joining in on this meme because I have a set topic to work with. Top Ten Tuesday is a book blogger meme that is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week the theme is: Books People Have Been Telling You That You MUST Read. I went through my Goodreads recommendations and picked ten books from there.


  • Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
  • Life: A User’s Manual by Georges Perec
  • The Lighthouse by Alison Moore
  • Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer (mean people)
  • The Swan Book by Alexis Wright


  • Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray
  • The Dream Life of Sukhanov by Olga Grushin
  • On Literature by Umberto Eco
  • My Beautiful Enemy by Cory Taylor
  • Looking for Alibrandi by Melina Marchetta

    And are you planning on reading any? Also I still think you need to give Natasha Troops Lakebridge Cycle books a go.

    Ooh, a big yes to The Dream Life of Sukhanov! =D The Lighthouse was a curious read as I recall…and Jane Eyre of course is quite the classic 🙂

  3. Heyyy I’m not the only one that hasn’t read Jane Eyre. High five. haha

    Melina Marchetta gets all the love and while I have read that one, it was just okay for me. I enjoyed it and can understand the appeal but I’m not big on contemporary in general.
