Top Ten Tuesday: Ingrid's Recs for Occasional Readers

Top Ten Tuesday! My list this week is top ten books for occasional readers. I have a lot of extroverted friends who have many other fun, interesting things in their lives besides books. These friends only read occasionally, maybe a book every month or every few months.

Friends, this list is for you. These are books I can almost guarantee will grab your attention and that you will enjoy all the way to the end. These are the kind of books you won't want to put down.

It's going to be a quick one this week. Here we go.  (Links to my reviews.)

Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier
Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides
Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami
The Girl's Guide to Homelessness by Briana Karp
Freedom by Jonathon Franzen
Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer
Almost French by Sarah Turnbull
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
Abundance: A Novel of Marie Antoinette by Sena Jeter Naslund

What books would you recommend to an occasional reader?
