The Broke and the Bookish.This week's topic is Books that make you think (About the world, people, anything)
1. Every Day by David Levithan - This book made me think more than any other book has in a really long time about what it is to be a human, and have all the things that define us as people.
2. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky - This is one of my favorite books in the universe, because it's so raw and real and it really promotes Carpe Diem and to take every opportunity life throws you.
3. The Wave by Todd Strasser - This is such a powerful book that reflects on how human beings can be led so easily by just one man, and it's even more powerful, because it is a true story of how on teacher almost recreated one of the most terrible things in history.
4. Delirium by Lauren Oliver - What would the world be without love? Without any real, strong emotion? It would be fake.
5. It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini - This is a very powerful book about depression and mental illness, that shows a boy who is staying at a mental hospital for a few days. It is so raw and filled with integrity.
6. Hate List by Jennifer Brown - This is a book that really frightened me. But it showed how much your choices you make now can affect people in the future, and sometimes affect them so much that they die. This is a very strong book.
7. The Giver by Lois Lowry - I read this in grade 8 English class and I was one of the only people in my class to actually enjoy it. But I think this is one of the most amazing books out there. It really makes the reader think about what it would be like to live in a community like that and learn what it is like out here.
8. Looking for Alaska by John Green - It's hard to read this book without thinking... But this book really just is hard to explain how it made me feel...
9. The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling - You knew this was coming, didn't ya? These books promote everything important, like love and loyalty, friendship, bravery, good vs. evil.
10. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green - Reading this book really reminded me to love with every ounce of your being because sometimes, the people you love will be gone in a heartbeat.
I could add so many more books to this list, but I suppose I should keep it at 10. I love books like these. They're all incredible and some of my favorites. Leave me a link to your TTT for this week.. I would love to find some more 'thinking books'! I'm in the mood for one right now.
Don't forget to always remember <3
