Hey everyone! This week’s topic for Top 5 Wednesday is ” Books from before you _____.” So basically, I decided to share with all of you some books that I read before I started blogging. I started my blog back in 2015, and did read a good share of books beforehand. Some of which I still fangirl over on my blog. But, I decided to throw it back to 2015 and share some of my favorite books from before I started blogging. Let’s get started!
- Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout:
Ooooh, you betcha I was going to include this one! Most of you may already know this, but this book inspired me to start book blogging. I found it so cool how there was a character interacting with other book lovers and sharing her thoughts on books through a blog. I wanted to do that, and now look where we are two years later! But this book is literally one of the most cliche books I have ever read, and one of the best! The romance and paranormal aspect of it are A+! And, I am usually creeped out by aliens in books, but how could you be when it’s Daemon Black?!
- Ink by Amanda Sun:
In all honesty, this was the first YA book that I bought. I had been borrowing some from my friend beforehand, and finally realized that my love for books really wasn’t ending anytime soon. When my parents told me that we were going for a spring break vacation, I just knew that I needed to get a new book for the vacation. And that is basically how I got into this one. I absolutely loved the watercolour covers, and I just had to read them. The Paper Gods series is a little bit more to the unknown side, but it is definitely worth the read through!
- Legend by Marie Lu:
For me, Legend was the dystopian that came after The Hunger Games and Divergent. I feel like everyone went through their dystopian phase at some point in their reading journey. Mine was at the beginning and I found my self reading books like Legend, Delirium and Shatter Me. I’m not a huge fan of the genre anymore, but I will definitely still pick up anything that sounds interesting. I’m pretty sure that a lot of you have read Legend already, but I would definitely recommend that you read it if you haven’t already. It is so amazing! ❤
- Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard:
Well, back when I used to watch lots of TV, Pretty Little Liars was my go-to show. There was so much mystery and suspense and ROMANCE. What was there not to love? I noticed that my friend had the book series, so I ended u borrowing them off her. The first book was great, but each book kept getting worse and worse from there. I could hardly get past Wicked, book 5, and that was when I knew I had to quit the series. Even though I am not a fan of these books anymore, they still hold a special place in my heart as the first YA books I ever read!
- The Secret Diamond Sisters by Michelle Madow:
Let me just start off by saying “I LOVE MICHELLE MADOW’S BOOKS!” I was kind of scared to get into this book since it has such a cliche title. But it was truly perfect! The best way to describe this series is by saying: it goes from light and fluffy, to mysterious. Numerous mysteries unravel throughout the series, and they all lead up to the big mystery in Diamonds are Forever. I also read and loved her Elementals series (during my time as a blogger) and they were great. Not as good as TSDS, but I still found myself enjoying them.
And that is it for today! I hope you enjoyed my picks for this week’s top 5 list! I had a lot of fun with it. Do you do Top 5 Wednesday on your blog? If so, be sure to leave the link to your post in the comment section. Don’t forget to like and follow to stay up to date with all of my future posts!
