Top Ten Books for people who like...

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week there's a category and everyone participating lists their "Top Ten" in that category.

This week's topic is: Top Ten Books For People Who Like X Book
So I decided to switch it up just a tad. I based it off of Variant by Robison Wells and went more along the lines of Books For People Who Like Screwy-Mess-With-Your-Mind books.

1. Variant by Robison Well
Boarding schools and secrets are a good mix, no?

2. Glimmer by Phoebe Kitanidis
Amnesia and a town full of creepy happy-zombies makes for quite the interesting read. Especially for the first 100 pages or so.

3. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michele Hodkin
At times it seems so normal and others...not so much :P

4. Another Faust by Daniel & Dina Nayeri
This is definitely one strange book. It's not so much the "what is going on right now?!" kind as the kind that just kind of has the slow, strange creep going on.

5. Harbinger by Sara Wilson Etienne
This may not have necessarily been my favorite, but it still definitely belongs in this category. And if you're thinking "this just seems like run-of-the-mill paranormal stuff" halfway through -- just wait. I can assure you it gets downright weird.

6. Dark Eden by Patrick Carman
This is definitely one that'll have you scratching your head wondering what in the world is going on.

7. Frost by Marianna Baer
So, the weirdness here is quite plainly ghosts. What isn't plain, however, is whether or not the ghosts are real...

8. The Maze Runner by James Dashner
This book will have you dying for answers, but you'll never be bored. It's intense and so incredibly awesome.

9. Incarceron by Catherine Fisher
It's possible that the only reason I found this book a little mind-screwy is because something fantasy is over my head :P Still, it's definitely out there and there are lots of twists and turns that'll keep you guessing. (Pssssst..it's going to be a movie)

10. Z by Michael Thomas Ford
So, it's about zombies. That much is straightforward. The rest? Not so much.

  1. Great topic, Jasmine Rose! I am shocked to say that I haven't read any of the books on this list! I do own Variant, but haven't read it yet. Good gosh, there are just too many books. Haha! Great list - I'll happily be checking some of these out on Goodreads!


I adore all the comments you write. They totally make my day :]
