Top Five Friday #13: Books I Read Before I Blogged


Top Five Friday is a meme hosted at Katieemay which lists our top 5 choices based on a bookish theme

Being a relatively new book blogger, many of my favourites are the ones I read before I blogged. I think it’s important for me to recognise the books I read way back as great too! 

1. Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth

When I read this series just before the film came out (which is over a year ago now), I absolutely adored them all. I read Insurgent in under a day (which made it the first ever book I read in under a day), and loved it so much. I still really love them now, and mean to re-read very soon!

2. Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick

I read this book around the time of publication, and having just finished Hush, Hush (which I loved at the time, even though now I’m pretty sure that if I read it I would despise it as much as all the reviews do), I was really excited to see another novel by Becca Fitzpatrick. I loved the way this book was so fast paced, and enjoyed every minute (although I’m not sure I would if I read it now).

3. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

This book was amazing. I read it in one sitting on the ferry - I loved it then, and I’m sure I would love it now. I really need to re-read it soon because I know I will fall in love with everything about it all over again.

4. Shadowhunter Chronicles (I couldn’t pick one series, let alone one book from this world!) by Cassandra Clare

I am such a big fan of this series. I love the world so much, and I can always come back to re-read some of my favourite chapters. I especially love the fantasy aspects because they’re so exciting and well-written. I definitely need to re-read all of these before Lady Midnight in 2016!

5. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

This book is one of my all-time favourites. I just adore everything about it. It’s so feel-good and light, I read it really quickly last summer so I definitely need to read it again soon. It’s just a perfect book and I just want to hug everything about it! *happy excited dance*
