Top Ten Tuesday Sixty Nine

Top Ten books to buy someone who doesn't read alot

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/ meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish.  After not taking part in this for a number of weeks now, I decided that this week's topic was a perfect one to jump back into things with.  I choose to recommend books to buy someone who isn't the biggest reader, but perhaps would like to read more, as I had so many books that I felt could fit this really well.  And so, enjoy!  

Even people who aren't huge readers are likely to have read or seen the movie for The Fault in our Stars, so instead why not give them another of John Green's books that is not only an amazing read with a great plot and a heart-wrenching plot twist, but also includes characters that will keep you reading no matter how little you usually do.  

I don't think I will ever not recommend David Levithan to absolutely anyone, regular reader or not, but this one is a particularly good one to get them for Christmas, as it is set around this time of year as well.  Not only is a gorgeously unique romance, but it is also so well written, and now has a sequel they could get into as well!  

I've only just read this, but can already happily say that it is perfect for anyone who is just starting to or hasn't read alot of YA before.  Whilst it is by no means the most unique or best fantasy out there, it is super fast paced, easy to read, and will sweep you away instantly.

What better to get someone who doesn't read alot than an amazing YA classic that is not only a beautiful story, but also written in such a unique form that they will fly through.

This is another one I feel like I recommend at absolutely every opportunity going, as it is one of my all time favourites, but I also believe it could be perfect for someone who isn't a big a reader as well.  It follows four different characters, meaning that you will never have a problem if there is a slow point in one storyline, as they are faced with the threat of a meteor that is said to spark the end of the world in a number of months, making it such a unique story that I dare them not to love.  

This one is perfect for absolutely anyone who likes a cute little romance, as it follows Hadley and Oliver as they find themselves drawn to each other as they get to know each other during a long plane ride to London.  This one is also quite a short read at only 230 pages, so absolutely anyone can fly through this one in no time at all.  

What better to get someone for Christmas than a Christmassy book?  Not only is it perfect to get you in the mood for both Christmas and the New Year, but it is also a collection of short stories, making it perfect for absolutely anyone, no matter how much time they have or how much they like to read.  

Finally, this is one of my oldest favourites that follows our main character of Daisy who has died and been brought back to life 5 times, as she moves and has to create a new life for herself all over again.  Its fast-paced with an addictive writing style, has a friendship you will fall in love with and has some insanely plot twists, and so will keep absolutely anyone hooked till the very end.  

What books would you recommend someone who isn't a huge reader?  Have you read any of these - what did you think?  


  1. Great suggestions! I haven't read all of these, but the ones that I have I really enjoyed. Hopefully these books get some nonreaders reading this year!

    1. Thanks! Glad you enjoyed all the ones you have read :)
