Books Top 5 Wednesday

Top 5 Wednesday: Books You’re Thankful For

December 18, 2017

What is Top 5 Wednesday?

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Sam of Thoughts on Tomes on YouTube. Here is the link for the Goodreads group where you can find the list of topics and such. 

This weeks topic is: Books You're Thankful For

1. Pierce Brown

Red Rising has given me thousands of new friends. I'm not kidding, there's a Facebook group full of us. Which is mildly terrifying as we're all a little mad. But I'll tell you a secret, the best people are. I work in a bookstore an without fail if I see a person hover anywhere near the Sci-Fi section I pounce and thrust this book into their hands. I've forced it onto my friends, family and at this point I'm shocked I haven't tried to get my dog to listen to the audiobook. The power of a Fandom is both under appreciated and a formidable thing. They can be so toxic but the Howlers are a family. And I thank my  lucky stars for each and everyone of you bloodydamn weirdos. (If you've read the series and want to join drop me an e-mail and I'll send you a link...trust me you want it.

Per aspera ad astra.

4. Harry Potter by J.K Rowling

This series has touched everyone in some way. I was born the year the first book came out so although I didn't grow up with the books really I did grow up with the films. I have since read the books of course, please don't start the witch hunt... But I saw my mum read them and I know that there are parents that read them to their children. Just recently I went to the Studio Tours down in Watford and was stunned to see such a variety of ages. There were couples in their 30's, 40's, 50's, entires families with children of every ages. But the one recurring factor was every single one of them was wide eyed and grinning. Harry Potter transcends ages and its magic isn't just contained within the walls of Hogwarts.

3. The Perks of being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

It was only a few days ago that I was talking to a wonderful friend from University about how much I adore this book. Not just because its a good story, which it is. Not just because it has a good adaptation, which it has. But because it came to me at a moment in my life that I was a little lost and though there are days, still, where I'm convinced I still haven't found my way it's no longer scary. It's my version of Anfield. It's only now that I've realised I never actually asked if he'd read it...If not I'm going to need to fix that...The Perks of Being A Wallflower follows Charlie, a teenager just starting high school who is terrified that he won't make friends, that he'll be an outcast. Which is something that I think everyone feels at some point, whether you're going into high school or a new job anything. The book is filled with incredible quotes and no matter how many times I read or watch this I still cry at the exact same bits. 

"We accept the love we think we deserve." 

"Charlie: I didn't think anyone noticed me.

Patrick: Well we didn't think there was anyone cool left to meet! So come on everyone. To Charlie!"

1. Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas

The Throne of Glass saga opened me up to a world I never knew existed. Prior to this I hadn't really read a great deal of fantasy. I stuck to my Vampires and Werewolves and woe-be-tied anyone who dared try and get me to divert. One such person dared...Helen. Thank-you. And I'm sure the friends that I then made read this also thank-you. This is a series that I continue to read and continue to make new friends from as a result. Again, fandoms. United we stand, divided we fall. 

I have a review for Tower of Dawn here.

5. The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas

I love being educated. I want to know as much as possible about anything and everything. This year The Hate U Give is definitely the book that taught me the most. It showed me how truly inherent racism is within society, how corrupt the world is and how important it is to use your voice and make a stand. Like the vast majority of the world the constant stream of news surrounding the police brutality in America always has me asking how. How is this still present in 2017? The Hate U Give explains why and it's terrifying. This novel should be on every school programme, should be required reading at any level. It's raw and brutal...but then so is the subject matter. I will be forever thankful to Angie Thomas for further opening my eyes and having the courage to use her voice and write this book.

Thank-you for reading,
