Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Would Recommend to...my Boyfriend

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists over there at The Broke and the Bookish. I'd love to share my lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

This is an excellent top ten this week and perfect for people thinking about Christmas gifts or recommending books for people to read during the holidays. I decided to recommend some books to my boyfriend because he doesn't read a lot of fiction, so thinking up some fictions for him to read is actually really useful. There are actually some chick lit novels I think he would really like and find funny, so here goes...

1. One of my favourites-Bridget Jones Diary by Helen Fielding. This was the first book to ever make me laugh out loud and I think he would really like the well-written humour! 

2. Another favourite of mine... One Day by David Nicolls. I also like the other books written by this author and so I think that he would like any of these but this one is obviously my favourite! 

3. Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn, he really liked the film of this so I think he would like the novel just as much! 

4. The Stag and Hen Weekend by Mike Gayle. This was a great dual narrative and I think he would find the different perspectives really interesting. I reviewed this on the blog a couple of months ago so take a look at what I thought! 

5. I Heart New York by Lindsey Kelk. I keep telling him how much he would love New York and also how Angela's now husband reminds me of him (or rather he reminds me of Alex as Alex came first) and so I think it'd be a really quick intro into some great chick lit! 

6. Ralph's Party by Lisa Jewell. Another dual narrative that makes this novel totally male friendly! 

7. The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. I really liked the historical aspect to this novel and found it a very compelling read, something I think he would find easy to get into... 

8. The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion. This was a read I enjoyed earlier on this year, so take a look back for my review of that. I found this to be a really funny but quick read and so I think this would be something he would really enjoy! 

9. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I think he would find this a really interesting read and a assists part of me would like to see if he cries or not.. 

10. Finally, this isn't fiction and so I've kind of defeated the object of this whole top ten but I do keep trying to make him read everything Bill Bryson has ever written so that is going to be my final recommendation... 

Let me know if you can recommend anything else for boyfriends who don't normally enjoy reading fiction, especially if its something I've missed that was released this year!
