Today's Top Ten Tuesday (which, as always, is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish) is Top Ten Books I'd Recommend for Reluctant Readers.
These books are a) awesome and b) action-packed, and their size is not very intimidating.
Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment by James Patterson
This was my first favorite series. Patterson isn't the best writer, but his chapters are really short, and this book is a fast read and full of action and sarcasm.
The Scott Pilgrim Series by Bryan Lee O'Malley
In my experience with some friends, graphic novels and manga can lead reading other kinds of books, and this is the best graphic novel series I've ever read.
Twilight by Stephanie Meyer
Yes, yes, I know, ew, but this is the book that got me and my best friend into reading, and I know it's done the same thing for countless others.
This one reminds me of a classic John Hughes movie with a few panic attacks thrown in for good measure. Plus, they're really short and funny, so yay.
Ripple by Mandy Hubbard
I have not actually read Ripple, but I'm recommending it to reluctant readers based on my younger sister's reaction to the book. She wasn't a big reader before Ripple, but she picked it up from the library and devoured it, and now she loves reading.
Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison
I have a feeling that if I read this one when I was 12 I would've LOVED it. When I read it a few months ago, I still thought it was awesome! This book is funny and fast.
These books are fast, cute, and such fun. I cannot imagine a girl turning these down.
Divergent by Veronica Roth
This one is full of kick-buttery. It's size may be intimidating to some, but once they start reading it they won't be able to stop!
Anna and The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Anna and the French Kiss is like the best kind of chick-lit that even skeptics like me will enjoy.
