Top 10 all time favourites

Hi! Hope you’re all well. Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Shannah @ Bionic book worm that I decided to participate in. This week is all about your all time favourite books but instead of 5 it’s 10 because we all know hard it is to chose your favourite children. This lost is in no particular order, that would make it even harder!

The night circus by Erin Morgenstern


This is a book that I didn’t expect to like but I absolutely fell in love with it and have now read it twice, I love the descriptions of food in this story and the whole magic system. The characters are also my favourite things ever I love Bailey with all my heart and I just want to go to the circus so bad. I can’t wait for the movie omgggg!

Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine by Gail Honeyman


This was another one that kind of crept up on me, I had heard it mentioned but wasn’t too interested until I saw a special signed edition in Waterstones which is just the prettiest thing and I had to have it. I then read it and I related to Eleanor so much and I loved the British references throughout the book as i don’t read many books set in the UK so that was nice.

A darker shade of magic by V.E. Schwab


The last one specifically but the whole series is incredible. I really love this world and was so captivated the whole time, it genuinely made me feel like a child again reading these because I was that obsessed and wanted to be part of this world. Lila Bard is my absolute favourite character ever {haters come at me} but I have an even deeper love for her because {spoiler kinda!} she has one eye and consequently wears a prosthetic which is also the case for me so I connected to her a little more.

Under rose-tainted skies by Louise Gornall


This was my final read of last year and I’m so glad I managed to squeeze it in because it quickly made it on my favourite reads of the year. This focuses a lot on mental health and it really resonated with me and made me realise a lot of things, reading this was kinda tough because it really represented me and I am so eager to read it again so I can annotate it.

Radio silence by Alice Oseman


Boy I love this! I really liked how this book centres around friendship rather than romance like most YA novels as well as the diversity in this book, the diversity feels so natural and not forced at all. This also focuses around the characters being unsure about going to university which hit close to home as I myself have never been unsure about going to university even to the point of dropping out last year and taking that time to realise I want to go again this year. I really needed this and again can’t wait to re-read this.

All the bright places by Jennifer Niven


Another book that just really hit me hard with the amount that I related to it. I’ve said this before in my on my shelf post but I do recognise that this book very much glamorises mental health and suicide and that it could potentially be harmful for people to read. having said that it was something I needed at the time that I read this and fir that reason I am thankful for this book so it remains one of my favourites.

A Christmas carol by Charles Dickens

A Christmas Carol

A bit of a different one compared to the rest of this list but this is my favourite classic, and one of the few I’ve actually read. I read this in school for my GCSEs and have loved it ever since. I really enjoyed studying this book and I really love Christmas so that helps. Honourable mention to The afterlife of holly chase which is a retelling of A Christmas carol which I will no re=read every December as well as the original.

A man called Ove by Fredrik Backman


Another unexpected favourite. I borrowed this from a family member after she had finished it and had to by my own copy because I loved it that much. This book is so sad yet so hopeful at the same time and all the characters just make this story for me. It’s beautifully written {also translated} so i can’t wait to read more from Fredrik Backman in the future.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone by J.K. Rowling


I’m sure you don’t need me to explain this one but I actually only read this series in it’s entirety for the first time earlier this year and obviously I fell in love. I had read the first 3 as a child but for some reason never continued, I think I was too intimidated by the size after book 3. Also chamber of secrets is my favourite in the series and I will stand by that and Ron is my absolute babe we love him.

The hating game by Sally Thorne


Okay so does somebody want to stop me from talking about this book again because this is the third post it’s wiggled it’s way into. I have nothing more to say I just loved this so much and it has opened my eyes to the world of adult romance which I will certainly be diving into soon. I love josh with all my heart can we please protect him.

Let me know some of your favourites. Thanks for reading
