Booking Through Thursday (5)

Today Bookish Sarah asks:
If someone asked you for a book recommendation, what is the FIRST book you’d think to recommend (without extra thought)?

Usually I don't have someone ask for a generic book, they ask for genre specific. When I read this question the book that instantly popped into my head was The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa. It's funny this would be my choice and even surprised me a bit since I just finished reading it a few days ago. Guess it left That much impact as being a kick ass read.
Review Here

For Fun I had my husband ask me the question above giving several Genres as choices. These are what I came up with:

Action: Six Sacred Stones by Matthew Reilly

Zombies: Hollowland by Amanda Hocking

Historical Non-Fiction: Letters From Iwo Jima by Kumiko Kakehashi

Non-Fiction: The Hot Zone by Richard Preston

Children's: The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams

Have you read any of these books? What would your choices be if asked the question? Let me know in the comments below! I love reading your replies.

I haven't read any of these books, but i'd be interested in Letters From Iwo Jima. I really enjoyed the movie, but haven't had the opportunity to read the book.

It is really good. I haven't read it in years but it must've left an imprint since it is immediately what came to mind.

I had a hard time with this week's question too.

I love the genre Paranormal Romance so for someone who likes those books I would recommend ANGELFALL by Susan Ee!!! I loved it! I still have to post my review *sigh and The Soul Screamers books by Rachel Vincent

For Non-fiction I would have to go with Only Love Is Real by Brian Weiss

Historical Fiction: The Free Negress Elizabeth by Cynthia McLeod

I'm pretty sure there are a million other books I love and forgot to mention on this list but these are the ones that came to mind :)
