Amanda’s Top Ten Tuesday – Don’t Touch!

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week we talk about our top ten with a different topic provided by Jana. This week’s topic is top ten – Books That I Refuse to Let Anyone Touch.


For this post, I’m going to change the topic instead to books I want everyone to read because books I won’t let anyone touch will be the books that I have collectors editions. So, in no particular order here are ten (or more) books I recommend the most.

Looking for Alaska by John Green

The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo (specifically the audiobook)

How She Died, How I Lived by Mary Crockett

Beartown by Fredrik Backman

The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima

Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi

An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green

Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody

The Birds, The Bees, and You and Me by Olivia Hinebaugh

Anger is a Gift by Mark Oshiro

The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell

Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel (specifically the audiobook)

Dry by Neal Shusterman and Jarrod Shusterman

Rayne & Delilah’s Midnite Matinee by Jeff Zentner

What books do you find yourself recommending the most? Have you read any from my list? What books do you think should have made this list?

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.

  1. I’ve been on the library waitlist for Dry for quite a while. You’re only making me more curious to read it.

    My TTT.

  2. There are so many good books on this list, but Beartown really stands out to me. I had a hard time with it in the beginning. It was so slow, but it was really setting up an amazing story. It’s so important. Great list!

    My TTT.

  3. I’ve had my eye on The Birds, and The Bees for a bit. I heard about it a while ago but haven’t heard anything about it much so far. I’m glad you liked it!! I don’t remember the summary too much but I’m always here for a contemporary romance, lol

      1. Aw that’s great! I’m so glad more books like that are coming out for teens! A book I would have liked in high school is probably going to be To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. I love Lara Jean and her quiet self-confidence.

          1. Stephanie Garber is also like that! I met her in person, and while I didn’t love Caraval like so many, so was so friendly. It’s so nice when you meet authors like that, especially if you traveled far to meet them.

              1. That’s nice you’re able to go to book signings and they’re ~semi~ close! I have a bookstore that doesn’t do a lot of signings, but it’s only 30 minutes away so that’s nice.

Have any thoughts?
