This week’s topic is your top 5 favorite books that were recommended to you.
5. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
My aunt, who lives in Malaysia, recommended me this book a few years ago, but up until a few months ago, I never read it. I would give this book 4 1/2 stars. I thought it was a fantastic book. I know a lot of people hated it, but I really enjoyed it.
4. The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen
One of my best friends sister recommended me this book, so I went and got it from the library. I ended up flying through it in one sitting, and loving it! It’s a very middle grade book, but the ending is so brilliant. I gave this 5/5 stars on GR’s. 🙂
3. Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan
My 5th grade teacher pushed this book onto me so many times and I, for some reason, didn’t read it until the end of 6th grade. I really should’ve listened to that teacher earlier. I love the Percy Jackson series. It’s probably on my top 10 favorites ever.
2. Divergent by Veronica Roth
I read Divergent quite a while ago, and I’m proud to say that I beat the bookish community to the series. A family friend of mine gave me the first book and he told me that it was a great book and I should read it. Divergent is probably the series that really got me into reading. I even read it before the Harry Potter series.
1. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
If we’re being real here, I thought the Harry Potter series was stupid for a really long time. My dad had been telling me to read it, but I still thought it was stupid. Boy was I wrong. Thanks Dad for my childhood in more ways than one.
