My Top 5 Books

Hi blog friends!!

Ever since I was little I have always loved books, I used to ask my dad to read me hundreds of books before bed because I loved hearing about all these exciting stories or maybe that was just so I could stay up later haha!
My love of reading and books really started when I was in my primary school's library one day and picked up a book called Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, I don't know if you've heard of it haha! But I distinctly remember finishing it and reading it again, I thought it was the most gripping, thrilling, scary, funny, clever book I'd ever read, and since then my love for reading has only grown.
Since being at university I rarely get time to read unless it's an academic book which I'm not complaining about, but sometimes there's nothing better than getting lost in a great book and finding new worlds to explore and characters to invest in, so I thought I would quickly share with you my top 5 books that I have read (probably about 600 times each).

Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk 
Well I'm about to break the first two rules of Fight Club so I'll keep it short and sweet, I love this book there's just something really fun about reading it I can't really explain. I love the characters and the plot and I also love the film!

Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella 
Sophie Kinsella is without a doubt one of my all time favourite authors best known for her series of books 'Confessions of a Shopaholic', her books are such easy reading and always have fantastic characters and are always funny! I have read Remember Me? so many times and each time it is always just as funny and brilliant as the first!

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J. K. Rowling
No list of favourite books can be complete with a Harry Potter book and this is hands down my all time favourite Harry Potter book to read (Goblet of Fire is my favourite film in case you were wondering). I think I have read this book a roundabout 6 billion times, I love the whole plot for this book and film, J. K is just beyond clever, the way everything happens for a reason, and also when Harry and Hermione use the Time Turner is my favourite thing!

Soul Surfer autobiography of Bethany Hamilton 
I remember getting this autobiography for Christmas one year and thinking 'greaaaat this looks random' but once I read it I had untold amounts of respect for this girl, she unfortunately had her arm bitten off by a shark but did that stop her from getting back in the water and chasing her dreams, of course not! Bethany is so inspirational and determined. It was such a lovely read and very eye opening! If you haven't seen the film (Soul Surfer) with AnnaSophia Robb go watch it, it is so emotional but absolutely fantastic, it's on UK Netflix right now!

Sweet Little Lies by Lauren Conrad
This is the second book in a trio called L.A Candy and boy are these books incredible and so addictive! I read the first book in 2 days, this book in 1 day and the final book in 2 as well. I literally could not put these down, they are so fantastic but this one was definitely my favourite, it is basically an episode of The Hills in a book and what is better than that! I love Lauren's way of writing it's such an easy and fun read and I love Jane the main character!

So that was just a quick glimpse into some of my favourite books! All of them are great all year round reads and I can't praise them enough! What are your favourite books?!

Lots of love
