Since getting back to blogging over the last couple months, I’ve really wanted to add something new to my weekly posts. And lo and behold, I’ve been inspired by fellow blogger Soffi @A Book. A Thought. (Follow her!) Soffi’s ABC Book Challenge posts were so fun, I decided I just had to do my own! So, every week I’ll be posting my favourite, most memorable books and books from my TBR, moving from A-Z.
(PS. Whoever came up with this challenge, I don’t know who you are but thank you!)
So, H might just be my favourite list of books so far for my Memorable Titles! Wowie. First and most importantly, Harry Potter. I would’ve put the whole series up in the above images if I could, but it would’ve been a bit extreme in size, so the first book is there to represent a series that means so much for me and always will. Just magic. If you’re someone who hasn’t read it yet, I am begging you to. (Yes, I’m looking at you, fiance, gosh.) The Handmaid’s Tale is one of my favourite modern classics, so powerful as is a lot of Margaret Atwood’s books. I still haven’t seen the TV show! The Hate U Give is a must-read for everyone, I truly believe that. Angie Thomas deserves so much praise. I finally read His Dark Materials a couple of years ago on my fiance’s recommendation (Um, why haven’t you still not read Harry Potter again??) and it was like finding a new home in a series again. The Hobbit is a fantasy/childhood classic I simply can’t ignore and the same goes for Holes, which I distinctly remember picking off the library shelf and reading in one day. Honesty is a gritty and lovely book and I wish I could find someone to talk to about it! It’s truly mesmerising and made me cry. How To Build a Girl is one of the most hilarious and entertaining coming-of-age books I’ve ever read, and Johanna is a one of a kind character. Lastly in this list of favourites (phew, really does feel like a long one) comes The Hunger Games, an iconic YA series I just have to include here because, well, many reasons!
To Be Read
I absolutely love Aristotle and Dante (of course), so I really would love to read more of Benjamin Alire Saenz’s books. He Forgot To Say Goodbye is one of his older ones and wow, it sounds good! Technically, I’ve read what I can of Heartstopper on tapas, but I would really to read the hardcopy. Plus, I admire Alice Oseman so much and would love to support her more! How To Be Famous is the sequel to How To Build A Girl, so obviously I am very excited to read it! How To Make A Wish sounds like a beautiful story about love and hard times, just my kind of book, really. The House of the Scorpion is the first of highly reviewed series I’ve been wanting to read for so long but one that I’ve really struggled getting a hold of. Hope I do, soon!
So there you have it. What do you think? Any of these books on your lists? I’d love to hear from you!
