    1. 13 reasons why definitely made me think about how my actions may affect others without even knowing it.

  3. I just bought 13 Reasons Why & The Book Thief the other day...seeing them on so many lists really makes me think it's time to finally read them! Of course reading everyone else's list is making me think of so many more than just the 10...I guess that's not a bad thing!

    1. The Book Thief is AMAZING! It's raw and honest, will break your heart, but at the same time shows there's still hope for humanity. A must read for sho!

  4. I am sooo embarrassed to say that the only one from your list that I've read is The Book Thief, and I agree with it totally! There are a few on your list that I actually own, and most of them are ones that I want to read.

    I really need to pay attention to these lists and get to reading some of these thought-provoking books. Maybe I put too much stock in the fun ones?? HAHA

    1. Well the one you read is one of the best! I have to be in a certain mood for the serious type issue books, like if my tear ducts are too dry...
      The fun ones are just soo...fun?!
