Top 10 Books I Would Recommend to people trying to burst their YA Bubble

Top 10 Tuesdays
Description: Each week has a different theme and you need to list your Top Ten books/items under that theme!
So the YA bubble is a thing we are all hopefully aware of. If not please watch this video by Ariel Bissett, it should all become clear to you then:Greek My
So to coax people out of that YA bubble, I have posted here my Top 10 Non-YA books and series
1. Percy Jackson and The Olympians/Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan
So if you didn’t already know, it may surprise you to learn that the amazing Percy Jackson books are NOT YA! They are in fact shelved as Middle Grade books but many Adults and Young adults adore them also. These two series are a perfect fusion of  Greek(and occasionally Roman) Mythology, Adventure, witty comebacks and swoon-worthy Percy moments.
2. Stephanie Plum Series by Janet Evanovich
So I have raved about how awesome and hilarious these books are and I have devoured most of the series this year (excluding 19, which I am saving and 20 which comes out tomorrow) these books are definitely adult and they are listed as being Crime novels in the book store but they are comedic crime novels. They follow the always exciting life of Stephanie Plum, a lingerie shop assistant on Macey’s turned kick-ass (or in this case fall-on-her-ass) bounty hunter. Featuring a cast of crazy characters including a stoner she knows from high school and a transvestite singer/school bus driver (not to mention Stephanie’s off-her-rocker Grandma Mazur) the whole series is jam packed full of moments which will get you kicked out of the library for laughing too hard ( yes that actually happened to me…once…maybe twice….possibly three times)
3.Harry Potter
‘Nuff Said
4.The Host
So, a lot of people turn their nose up at this book due to the twilight stigma of it being written by Stephanie Meyer but “The Host” couldn’t be more different from the saga casting it in shadow. It is a really fantastic read which is not YA! I was a little wary going into it seeing as it’s not my usual style but it exceeded my expectations and it is now one of my all time favourite books!
5.Red by Kate Serine
This one was free from amazon for a wee while and someone recommended it to me and i checked it out, it was fantastic!! I’m going to paste the Goodreads thing here to explain it better than I can!
“My name is Tess Little. But everyone calls me Red.”

Once upon a time, a spell went awry, stranding Make Believe characters in the ordinary world. Since then, Tess “Red” Little—a/k/a Little Red Riding Hood—has worked as an Enforcer for the Chicago branch of the Fairytale Management Authority. But, consider yourself warned—she’s not just some waif with a basket of goodies. All grown up and with nothing to lose, a gun and combat boots is more her style. And Red’s new assignment threatens to be short on happily ever afters…

And Red’s new assignment threatens to be short on happily ever afters…

Someone is murdering transplanted Tales in gruesome fashion. The list of fictional characters capable of such grisly acts is short and includes more than one of Red’s old flames. And if that wasn’t bad enough, there’s another complication, in the form of sexy, enigmatic Nate Grimm, the FMA’s lead detective and part-time Reaper. Used to following her own rules and living life on the edge, Red has managed to avoid taking on a partner until now. But Nate’s dark side makes him perfect for a case like this. That is, if she can trust him. Because if there’s one thing Red knows for sure, it’s that believing in the wrong person can have big, bad consequences…

6.Pride and Prejudice
So I’m not a huge fan of the classics (as in this is one of the only ones I’ve read and its the only one I enjoyed) but I red this one earlier in the year after discovering the Lizzie Bennett Diaries and I loved it! I was a lot easier for me to read and understand because I had the diaries to reference back to if I got lost or confused!
So I’m only posting 6 because I am really struggling for time right now (see previous post for explanation)
See Ya
