Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer: Easily one of the most profound novels to come this decade.  Bare in mind that this novel touches on the sensitive subject matter of the Events on September 11th, 2001.

The Hollow Series by Jessica Verday: This is one YA series that I would love to see read 30 years from now. It's often slept on, which is a shame, as its a wonderful series! Many times people don't give the rest of the series a chance because of frustrations with the first novel, but I recommend you forge forward. It's also one of the most effectively ended series' that I've read in YA. Abbey and Caspian <3! Bare in mind that this novel contains slight sexual content, and scenes depicting seances (Witchcraft).

Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers: This is one novel that will probably always be listed by me, as its just beautiful! There's nothing like being reminded of God's unfailing love for you! Bare in mind that this novel contains slight sensuality, harsh subject matters, and violence.

Bridge of Scarlet Leaves by Kristina McMorris: Wonderful World War II novel that made it's debut this year and deserves to be a modern classic! Bare in mind that this novel depicts scenes of war, racism, and violence.

After Dark by Haruki Murakami: Murakami is one of my absolute favorite authors. No one I've read thus far can create an ethereal, dualistic world like he can. I could have chosen any of the novels I've read by him, but I chose After Dark because what's more interesting than what goes on in various people's lives during the darkest hours of the night? It's also weird...very weird! Bare in mind that this novel contains adult content.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: One of my favorite Young Adult novels of all time. Green writes with such intelligence and sincerity that you'll be sucked in...tears streaming. Augustus Waters. Period.  Bare in mind that this novel contains profanity, sensitive subject matter, and slight sensuality.

Stargirl by Jerry Spinnelli: Stargirl. Another novel that will most always be listed for it's awesomeness! It showcases one of the only true individual Young Adult characters out there worth emulating!

The Perfect Chemistry Series by Simone Elkeles: The Fuentes Brothers feel like my family at this point! I loved every minute of these novels! Every character blew me away! Bare in mind that this novel contains sexual content, profanity, and violence.

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer: Yes, ladies and gents. Yes. It still rocks my world, and perhaps in 30 years we would've gotten over the vampire saturation enough to appreciate this novel again. I adore Twilight, and thought that this first novel deserves to be read, and not taken as seriously as it has been over the last few years! It's okay to have an imagination that doesn't always fit into a prescribed box. Bare in mind this novel contains slight sensuality, slight profanity, and violence.

The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins: I adore it, and believe that any awesome dystopian novel is timeless. It'll probably read for years to come!

Hope you enjoyed reading this list! What are your Top Ten Tuesday picks?
