Top 5 Wednesday: Children’s Books to Read as an Adult

Hey guys! This week is a pretty self explanatory topic! We can discuss what books we think deserve revisiting as we get older and childhood books that can still be appreciated when you are an adult! So lets get into it!

This group was created by Lainey (Gingerreadslainey) and is hosted by Sam (ThoughtsOnTomes). If you want to participate, check out the link on Goodreads here.

1) Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

Maybe an obvious choice for some but I actually read this when I was an adult. It was in 2015 and I was 19. I’d never read them before and my friend finally convinced me to after a lot of pleading and begging! It’s her favourite series but for some reason I never read them when I was a kid. I watched the films just never read the books. They are good but I wasn’t raving about them. I think they are better appreciated when you are younger and are opening up to the world of books. But they can still be read when you are an adult too as my friend still reads them a lot and loves them for sure!

Top 5 Wednesday: Second Book is Best

Hey guys! I was so excited to take part in this weeks topic because I have complained a lot about series that went downhill. I thought it was about time I gave some recognition to those rare second books that are actually pretty damn awesome! I’ve read my fair share of series where the second book has been incredibly boring but these series had kickass second books! I hope you enjoy!

scorch1) The Scorch Trials by James Dashner 

If you guys read a lot of my posts then you will know how obsessed I am with this series and James Dashner. His writing is just amazing and I’d love to be able to write such captivating stories! I adore The Maze Runner series so much, it’s actually one of my favourites! His writing is just fantastic and he completely blew me away in The Scorch Trials. This book was definitely the best in the series because it scared the hell out of me. It was so intense and spooky. It gave me chills and I actually had goosebumps reading it. When he writes about the cranks… it’s so scary! This was definitely one of the most intense books I’ve read and I bloody devoured it.

Top 5 Wednesday: Favourite Non-Canon Ships

Hey guys! It’s that time of the week again already! This week’s topic is favourite non-canon ships and can be couples you love, but they never got together or did get together but weren’t together at the end of the series. Or a couple you ship but it’s actually impossible for them to be together because they are from different worlds, franchises, etc.

thg1) Katniss and Gale (The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins)

I’m not really a big fan of these books and I have never understood why they are so popular but it actually killed me when Katniss and Gale didn’t end up together. I could not (and still can’t) see what was so great about Katniss and Peeta. I know I am not alone because I have seen others say they wanted Gale and Katniss to be together! They were so much better suited and I feel like the author just did that whole thing with Gale as an excuse to get him out of the way.
