For as long as I can remember, I have loved finding a good book, spending ALL my time reading it and just forgetting about everything that I am actually meant to be doing (my parents defs did not love this as much).
My all time favourite book is The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. This is honestly the ideal book for me, I love a bit of fantasy / magic and this book is no exception. This is such an imaginative book and incredibly written. I just cannot explain how much I loved this. It’s not one of those books that takes a while to get into, it’s just incredible from the get go. I fell in love with the characters and have been looking for more books like this once every since (leave a comment if you know of any!!). I recommend this book to anyone and everyone because I think it is absolutely perfect.
The book thief… what can I say… this is absolutely the most well written and descriptive book I have ever read. From start to finish I pretty much felt like I was right there (which is scary). But I feel like I learned so much from this book and it was just an emotional rollercoaster the whole time. I don’t think this book is to everyone’s taste but personally, I thought it was perfect.
Harry Potter… need I say more? The whole series is just amazing. I love the books, I love the movies, I loooooovvvvvveeeee Sirius Black. These are the books that I always come back to – there’s not much more to say about this because I am sure everyone knows how amazing they are without me telling you.
The next book in my top five is a book called ‘Room’. I found this book really interesting and eye opening. It’s about a mother and son who live in a room and aren’t allowed to leave – I won’t give anything away but it was really shocking to read in parts knowing that this is something some people have gone through and it really gives an insight into something I usually wouldn’t have thought about. Whilst it is a very deep book, it’s easy to read and so hard to put down. I found it took a couple of chapters to get into it but it was definitely worth the read!
And number 5 is Panic by Lauren Oliver. I read this book around a time where I had gone off reading a bit, just because of how busy I was, but I seriously could not put it down! Even though I think it was probably written for people slightly younger than me, I thought it was so entertaining. It was just a really good, easy to read book which I loved from start to finish.
So there you go, that is my current top 5 favourite books. I am always looking for new books to read so let me know your favourites in the comments so I can check them out!
