Top Ten Tuesday- Favourite Relationships

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is Valentine’s themed, so I thought I’d go with some of my favourite relationships. I was open to listing friendships as well, but that would make my list so long, so I decided just to go with romantic relationships.

Made You Up- Francesca Zappia

Made You Up

I don’t know why I stalled with reading this book. Sure, the hype scared me, but I should have made time for it! I’m so glad that I have now. It’s an amazing, intense read. I can’t speak highly enough about this book.

The Other Me- Saskia Sarginson

The Other Me

I’ve said it before, but I really didn’t expect to love this book as much as I did. It was another intense read, but so fascinating at the same time.

 The Beloved-Alison Rattle

The wonderful Alison Rattle can do no wrong in my eyes. I absolutely devour everything she writes. I highly recommend you check out Alison’s books if you like historical/period books!

I was utterly gripped by this book. It was completely unpredictable which I really appreciate.

The Last Leaves Falling- Sarah Benwell

The Last Leaves Falling

I absolutely loved this book. It captured my heart and moved me much more than I had ever anticipated.

Simon Versus The Homo Sapiens Agenda- Becky Albertalli

It couldn’t be a recent 5 star read list without including my favourite book of 2015. I can’t recommend this book highly enough! READ IT!

Boy In The Tower- Polly Ho-Yen

Boy In The Tower

This book hit me as a 5 star read out of nowhere. I really didn’t expect to rate it so highly, but I found it to be utterly gripping, unique and so easy to read!

I’ll Meet You There- Heather Demetrios

I'll Meet You There

I really enjoyed Something Real by Heather Demetrios, so I was intrigued and somewhat nervous to read the next book she released. I LOVED this book.

Lighter Than My Shadow- Katie Green

Lighter than My Shadow

This graphic novel is very raw and real. It blew me away.

Pointe

Pointe surprised me. It was much deeper than I had anticipated. A very compelling read.

Top Ten Valentine Reads

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is a Valentine’s freebie! I decided to go for ten books which would be great to read around Valentine’s Day!

In no particular order here are the books that I picked (images go to Goodreads!)

Billy and Me- Giovanna Fletcher

Billy and Me

Giovanna Fletcher is a great writer who creates characters you’ll find it hard to dislike!

Me Before You- Jojo Moyes (I had to… even though it’s a heart breaker!)

Me Before You (Me Before You, #1)

I know regular readers of my blog are probably getting very bored with seeing this book on my top ten lists, but it’s so good it HAS to be featured. Even if it reminds just one person of its existence that hasn’t got around to it yet. READ IT!

A Walk To Remember- Nicholas Sparks (I’m sorry, another sad one!)

A Walk To Remember

I know that a lot of people roll their eyes at Nicholas Sparks’ books, but I really enjoyed this particular one! A sad, but beautiful story.

Everything, Everything- Nicola Yoon

Everything, Everything

This book surprised me. I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I did. I bought into the romance and I didn’t expect the twist…

Lola and The Boy Next Door- Stephanie Perkins

Lola and the Boy Next Door (Anna and the French Kiss, #2)

I know that this middle book in the companion series wasn’t a favourite for many bloggers, but I really loved it. It is my favourite for sure. I really liked Lola!

Simon Versus The Homo Sapiens Agenda- Becky Albertalli

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

I really loved this book. It was another that I had heard loads of hype around, so I was a little worried. I need not have been though. It was a fantastic read with great characters.

Maybe Someday- Colleen Hoover

Maybe Someday (Maybe, #1)

I didn’t expect to feel so deeply with this book, but I sure did. I know it’s not for everyone, but I adored it.

Flat-Out Love- Jessica Park

Flat-Out Love (Flat-Out Love, #1)

This book really packs a punch! It’s full of humour but also romance and witty remarks. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

If You Could See Me Now- Cecelia Ahern

If You Could See Me Now

This book is on the lighter side with some magical realism. I think it’s adorable!

Eleanor & Park- Rainbow Rowell

Eleanor & Park

I didn’t expect to enjoy Eleanor & Park as much as I did. I think it’s a great, unusual love to read about in YA!
