I have no idea how I have never written a post about my favourite books. I’m such a bookworm, always have been always will be. I have no clue how I’m going to group this but I’ll probably group by authors when there are multiple books by the same author.
The first book and an all time favourite is Where Rainbows End by Cecilia Ahern. I’ve read this book about ten times already and play to read it again this summer. It’s all written in a series of letters and emails between the two main characters and although this may seem weird, it’s so cleverly written that it’s super fun and interesting to see the story progress.
My next favourite has to be The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. Now most people will say they’ve watched the film and it’s a good film, but the book is great too. I’m not one to always claim that books are always better, sometimes movies are. I just love the way the story is told from a child’s point of view and the whole war and Nazi situation is explained through the point of view of a young boy, it’s just really effective.
The next is a series. Harry Potter. I know, it’s everyone’s favourite but I love it and I’m always fascinated at JK Rowling’s imagination. She’s a genius, creating every little detail to perfection.
I also love Lesley Pearse a lot a lot a lot. She writes novel mainly about women, so if you’re a guy you might not like them as much. but the stories are really gripping and they usually happen in the past, 20s London or something like that, which obviously, the granny in me loves. Top faves by Lesley are Belle, The Promise, Charlie and Father Unknown.
The last two are a biography and a book I had to study for Uni. The first is the biography of Carmen Bin Ladin, the wife of one of Osama BIn Ladin’s brothers. She gives a look into the Bin Ladin world which is so shocking and scary that you just have to keep on reading. And the book which I read because I had to but I love is 1984. A classic by Orwell and again, I was fascinated by the genius of the author as much as by the story.
There are hundreds more books I’ve read and authors I love and they all hold a special place in my heart. I just can’t keep on mentioning books and authors because I’ll end up never stopping.
Feel free to comment telling me what you love to read, maybe I’ll find a coupe of authors and books I’ve never heard of.
