Top Ten Tuesday 9/11

Today is Tuesday and that means that the fabulous bloggers at The Broke and The Bookish have once again posted a topic for this weekly meme. Today is very appropriately Top Ten Books That Make You Think (about life, people, the world, etc.). Don't forget to follow the link to check out everyone else's Top Tens!

10.) Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky
Awaken had me thinking about how much technology is relied upon and what we lose by putting so much time, effort, and faith into.

9.)The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan


This may seem like a strange selection, but this book had me thinking about how we blindly follow what we are told too. It also had me thinking if something terrible, not necessarily zombies, ever did happen how would I handle it.

8.) Saving June by Hannah Harrington

Suicide is a tough subject and this book shows what it is like for those who are left behind.

7.)The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot

I read this book for my research and writing poli. sci. class. This is a book about injustice and ethics and one everyone should read.

6.) Witch Child by Celia Rees
This one had me thinking what it was like to be a woman before we had rights.

5.)The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder

Throughout this book I kept thinking about those who go on with their lives no matter how bad they feel, how sick they are, or the fact that they know they are dying.

4.) All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque

No matter which side they were on these poor boys had to live through a war they had nothing to do. It makes you think of the casualties all wars bring.

3.)Chinese Cinderella: A True Story of an Unwanted Daughter by Adeline Yen Mah

This is a book I recommend everyone should read. It had me crying like a baby. Once again this is a book that had me thinking about all of the hardships women all over the world have had to live through.

2.) Night by Elie Wiesel

This is a book about the Holocaust...how can this not make you think?

1.) Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer

This book had me crying and wondering how the world would be able to survive without modern day conveniences and a lack of government. This book was stuck in my mind for months.
