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 – 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 YOU’RE THANKFUL FOR:
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.
