TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books
Hey y’all! Today I’m comprising by top ten favourite books/book series.
Harry Potter. This will never change. Like it’s not that I’m stubborn it’s just that there is no better series than Harry Potter. The metaphors and just overall story are brilliant. Every theme ties in and completes the whole series and I just love it.
Winter Girls. Laurie Halse Anderson writes the chilling and all too familiar story of a teen living with anorexia and depression in a world that is making less and less sense to her.
Hunger Games. One of two dystopic successes that I think is incredible, prophetic, and beautifully written.
Delirium. This is the other dystopic series that I do really like, about a world in which love is thought of as a disease. It points out the lustful aspects of “worldly love,” which isn’t true love.
The Kite Runner. An obvious classic, but incredible nonetheless. Khalid Hosseini is a whizz with motif.
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Ah, soo brilliant. The movie based on it was pretty good, too. One of the best series I’ve read recently.
The Forgotten Garden. Kate Morton writes these long books that are so easy to get lost in. This one has stuck with me since I read it like 5 years ago.
A Walk to Remember. Nicholas Sparkes’ novel about true love at a young age bonded by God gets me every time, and I love the movie too!
Lets Get Lost. I read this not-famous, almost sketchy looking book when I was 13 and loved it, and I can barely tell you what it’s about anymore but I remember it striking a major chord with me.
The Fault in Our Stars. This classic book is so well written in John Green’s beautiful style and voice. It is surprising, funny, heartfelt, and thematic.
