Today, Tom and I are discussing our top ten "gateway" books/authors! :)
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely ladies at The Broke and the Bookish! -J & T
10. John Grisham (Jess)
Grisham led to other popular fiction authors, and I haven't stopped reading to this day!
9. Cormac McCarthy (Tom)
It's the first time I started enjoying literary fiction, and I haven't stopped reading every since!
8. Suzanne Collins (Jess)
I can never forget how blown away I was while reading, marveling over all the details about District 12, the bleakness of Katniss's life, and the drama of the games.
7. Maureen Johnson (Tom)
I was wrong. This book was amazing, and totally showed me why YA is so popular. Since reading Maureen Johnson, I'm now game to read any YA that now comes my way!
6. Nancy Mitford (Jess)
It's hilarious, memorable, and has made me totally more open to reading more British humor.
(Seriously, if you guys haven't read this book, please do!)
5. John Le Carre (Tom)
Since then, I'm always a game for a good spy book!
4. Jack Finney (Jess)
His About Time is still one of my favorite sci-fi books, and I totally credit Finney for helping me discover more authors like Ray Bradbury and Arthur C. Clarke.
3. Victor Hugo (Tom)
Since then, I've moved on to Dickens and other classic fiction!
2. Baroness Orczy (Jess)
This was the best introduction to reading more classic fiction like Les Miserables and Charles Dickens!
1. John Green (Tom)
This was the perfect book to get more involved with John's work, and the work of the Vlog brothers in general!
