Hope you’re doing well!
Here’s my latest Top 5 Wednesday post, I hope you enjoy it.
I also want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone that has been following my blog since I restarted it, and for all the love and support I’ve been shown. I really appreciate it, you’re all so lovely! I can’t believe that I have been lucky enough to reach 200 followers on WordPress, I never thought that this would happen! 🙂
Top 5 Wednesday (T5W) was created by the YouTubers Lainey – https://www.youtube.com/user/gingerreadslainey/videos and Samantha – https://www.youtube.com/user/thoughtsontomes in 2013. I know I’m late to the party, but it’s better late than never eh? It’s a tag used by both YouTubers and Bloggers.
A new topic is chosen weekly and every Wednesday you upload a list of 5 books that are related to the chosen topic.
If you would like to get involved and join in, here is a link to the Goodreads group where each topic is published: https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/118368-top-5-wednesday.
THE T5W TOPIC THIS WEEK IS BOOKS FROM BEFORE I JOINED WORDPRESS:
Okay so I feel like I always mention Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings series of books, so I’m not going to include them in this week’s T5W list to change my answers up a little bit.
1. Lord Loss – Darren Shan
This will always remain a firm favourite of mine. The over caught my eye when I was at the airport years ago. One of my traditions is to buy a new book every time I fly, and this was one of my choices as a child, and I’m so glad it was! It’s absolutely brilliant, and I’d definitely recommend it!
2. Dracula – Bram Stoker
I’ve read this multiple times and I think it’s absolutely brilliant and is a classic that everyone should try to read!
3. The Diary of Ann Frank
I read this for the first time when I was around 11 years old. I’ve read it multiple times since, and I think it’s such an important read. I’ve always been interested in World War Two and would love to visit her annex in Amsterdam one day. I nearly did with university, but had to drop out of the trip, which was a real shame. I’d definitely recommend that everyone read this as it’s a reminder of how the war affected so many innocent people .
4. The Twilight Series – Stephenie Meyer
I know not everyone will agree with me here, but I absolutely loved the books as a teenager. Yes, there were aspects that bothered me, but overall I think they were brilliant.
5. Dead Gorgeous – Malorie Blackman
I picked this book up years ago in one of the many bookshops in Hay-On-Wye, and by luck it was signed too! I remember really enjoying it as it was quite haunting. It also touches upon important topics such as overcoming eating disorders too.
