If you had asked me to make this list last year, or even six months ago, it would have looked completely different. I feel like my reading tastes have changed quite a bit, and books I once considered favourites aren’t as high up on my “All Time” anymore. I’ve been introduced to new books which have bumped them off haha!
Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm and each week there’s a different bookish topic to discuss. If you’re interested in participating, or checking out Shanah’s blog, click here!
The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare
The years may pass but one thing will never change: I will always love this series.
Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling
This list would be incomplete without this series which began my love of reading. I have so much to be thankful for because of these books… maybe I’ll do a separate post on it in the future.
Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan
I wish I had read these books when I was younger but that didn’t stop them from becoming an instant favourite as soon as I read them. They were so much fun to read and I still smile whenever I think about them.
The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven
When I was younger, I loved the Georgia Nicholson series by Louise Rennison. This book is similar in a way with the humour and the main character which is one of the many reasons why I’m obsessed with it. This also focuses upon really relevant issues in society and it’s one I think everyone should read.
Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
I think I’ve said before that Stalking Jack the Ripper began my love for mystery books. I used to stay well away from them because I found them predictable, but this one blew me away. I’m so thankful that I gave it a chance and I can’t wait to finish the series when the final book is released.
A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson
Speaking of mystery books… This is one I haven’t been able to shut up about. I’m pretty sure it’s featured on my last few lists for Top 5 Tuesday, but I can’t help it! It was incredible!
Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman
Never, ever, did I think that I would include a sci-fi book on my all time favourite books list. It’s a genre that I avoided for such a long time, but I eventually caved to all of the rave reviews and I’m so glad that I did. Although, I’m not quite there with sci-fi books, I’d like to think that this one has encouraged me to branch out a bit more!
My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows
I love this book for so many different reasons; it’s fun, bonkers, and I love that the authors created their own version of history. Every time I think of the book, I can’t help but giggle to myself because it really is crazy.
Caraval by Stephanie Garber
Caraval was just so magical. There’s no other words that I could use to describe it!
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
These books make me feel so warm and fuzzy inside. There’s so much to love about the books and I feel like this is one I could re-read a thousand times and not get bored.
