Top 5 Wednesday

Hi guys,

Hope you’re all having a fab week so far!

Here’s my latest Top 5 Wednesday post, it’s a sentimental one!

Top 5 Wednesday (T5W) was created by the YouTubers Lainey – and Samantha – 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:


A lot of these books have already been featured in my Top 5 Wednesday lists before, but they are ones that do mean a lot to me.

1. The Harry Potter Series – J. K. Rowling

This one goes without saying. It’s one the first book series I remember reading and it kick started my love for reading.

2. The Demonata Series – Darren Shan

I absolutely love this series of books. It began my love for horror books and Darren Shan definitely influenced my writing style.

3. The Hobbit – J. R. R. Tolkien

Again, this is another book I loved as a child and still do now. I think it’s utterly fantastic.

4. Secrets – Jacqueline Wilson

I loved this book as a child and it was probably my favourite Jacqueline Wilson book. It mentions Anne Frank, and it encouraged me to read her diary. If you know me well, you’ll know that I have a big interest in the Second World War and this book in some ways sparked this further.

5. Reasons to Stay Alive – Matt Haig

This is a brilliant quick read, and I encourage everyone to give it a read. It’s an extremely helpful and insightful book, and I commend Matt Haig for his honesty throughout it.

    Ahhh Jacquline Wilson! She was one of the lecturers at my university. I think the Sleepover Club and Bestfriends was my favourite. Love Lessons was also so good!
    If Harry Potter wasn’t mentioned i would have been shocked and appalled 😂😂😂
